Watch the first trailer for new Netflix series Marvel’s Luke Cage
The first trailer for upcoming Netflix series Marvel’s Luke Cage has premiered at San Diego Comic Con.
The cast of the new series – Mike Colter, Frank Whaley, Theo Rossi, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick and Alfre Woodard – took part in a panel to promote the show yesterday (Thursday, July 21) and dropped the trailer as a treat to fans.
Luke Cage is the third member of what will become Marvel’s Defenders to receive his own series on Netflix, after Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Netflix is also in the process of creating a series about Iron Fist, the fourth Defender, in which Game of Thrones‘ Finn Jones will star as the titular character.
Mike Colter has already appeared as Luke Cage in Jessica Jones, which premiered on Netflix last November. In the series, he supported Jessica through her ordeal with mind-controller Kilgrave and later revealed himself to have superhuman strength and unbreakable skin.
Marvel’s Luke Cage will see the superhero strike out on his own, as he fights in Harlem against criminals threatening to destroy the neighbourhood.
