Netflix Releases Hard-Hitting “Luke Cage” Trailer


Netflix(LOS ANGELES) — Netflix has released the first full trailer to Luke Cage, its upcoming Marvel series about the titular unbreakable hero. 

The new footage shows Cage‘s Mike Colter, reprising his Jessica Jones role, trying to keep a low profile after moving from Jessica Jones‘ and Daredevil‘s home turf of Hell’s Kitchen to Harlem, where Luke quickly finds out the choice to be a hero doesn’t change with your zip code.

“I just want to be left the hell alone,” Cage tells Frankie Faison’s Pop, who responds, “But that would be a waste.”

The coming attraction also shows Cage’s super-powered origins: an experiment that gave him immense strength and left his body literally unbreakable — which comes in handy when Luke sets his sights on Mahershala Ali’s criminal kingpin Cottonmouth Stokes, the brutal cousin of a local politician played by Alfre Woodard. 

The footage also showcases Netflix Marvel series star Rosario Dawson, who reprises her role as nurse and superhero confidante Claire Temple. “Sometimes if you want justice, you have to get it yourself,” she tells Cage.  

Luke Cage will be available for streaming November 20. 

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
