CBTVB: First Official Trailer for Luke Cage Debuts

By Muuka Muyumba

Marvel’s Luke Cage hits Netflix on September 30, 2016, and today (the anniversary of the death of young black man from Ferguson, MO, Michael Brown) we were given a full length trailer for the series.

Luke Cage will be the first season of the classic street-level hero who made his live-action debut in last year’s Jessica Jones. In Jessica Jones, we saw Luke (Mike Colter) ‘hiding’ in plain sight in Hell’s Kitchen after some tumultuous times in his native Harlem.

On September 30th, we’ll see Luke return to Harlem and make a choice to be a hero like Jessica (Krysten Ritter), and the returning Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) based on the trailer today. However, we don’t ultimately know what drives the nefarious minions in this series. Mahershala Ali plays Cornell ‘Cottonmouth’ Stokes who appears to be the leader of a criminal syndicate in Harlem, and may be trying to exert some political influence as well. In one shot of the trailer you see Cottonmouth in league with Councilwoman Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) aka Black Mariah.

Marvel’s Luke Cage also stars Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Frank Whaley as Raphael Scrafe, Freddy Faison as Pops, and Theo Rossi as Shades. No word on whether we will see any of the other Defenders: Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones, or Iron Fist (Finn Jones).
