It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! From the moment we spied Mike Colter’s quietly powerful Luke Cage in Jessica Jones, we knew we wanted … we needed more. The long wait is almost over, and following that initial tease a couple weeks ago, we finally have a full trailer. It’s sly, it’s glorious, and Luke Cage is the gloriously, bulletproof black superhero we need and deserve, not the token in a series full of white people; rather a fully fleshed, headlining character. Surrounded by an excellent group of fellow actors — Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali, Frankie Faison, Erik LaRay Harvey, Rosario Dawson, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley, Sônia Braga — there’s no way this Netflix outing isn’t a huge hit and, by gum, a diverse Marvel hit is something the entire world is craving. Just sink into this beauty of a trailer, and tell me you’re not frothing at the mouth for September 30th.
Meet me on the couch next month.
