Following yesterday’s poster premiere, Netflix has released the new full-length trailer for its upcoming third Marvel Comics-inspired TV series “Luke Cage”. Mike Colter reprises the role he played in several episodes of the first season of “Jessica Jones,” a super-strong crimefighter with impenetrable skin.
This time he’s the focus of the story in which the experimented on Cage is a man who wants to be left alone, but becomes a symbol for his Harlem community when a crime boss named Cornell ‘Cottonmouth’ Stokes (Mahershala Ali) crosses his path. There’s a welcome retro 1970s vibe and, with the sole exception of the title character’s super powers, it otherwise looks like the most grounded and realistic MCU work to date.
Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley and Rosario Dawson also star in the series which premieres on Netflix on September 30th.
