#ICYMI: Netflix Releases New Trailer For Harlem Defender: Luke Cage

In the 1970s, Marvel introduced readers to Luke Cage, a blacksploitation style superpowered character who was the original Hero for Hire and uncommonly selfish for a hero. But the '70s are long over, and the modern version of Luke Cage is one of the most prominent superheroes in the Marvel Universe. Last year, Mike Colter brought Luke Cage to the MCU in the Jessica Jones series, and in 2017, he'll be one of The Defenders. But first, he's about to star in a brand new Luke Cage solo series on Netflix!

Netflix recently  released a new extended trailer for Luke Cage, which reunited Colter's title character with Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple( Daredevil, Jessica Jones) after their encounter in the first season finale of Jessica Jones. They are clearly getting closer to each other in this series, as Cage finds himself reluctantly drawn into the war for Harlem's soul. This trailer also offers up an intriguing glimpse of Cage's updated villains: Mahershala Ali as Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, and Theo Rossi as "Shades" Alvarez. Unfortunately their comic book counterparts weren't very formidable compared to Cage, but that's definitely changing in this series.
The character Luke Cage was created for Marvel Comics by Archie Goodwin and John Romita, Sr., Luke Cage is one of the most popular street level heroes in the Marvel Universe who possesses superhuman strength and impenetrable skin. He’s also a friend and frequent business partner with Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, who will also be getting his own series on Netflix starring Finn Jones as the title hero.
