I don’t know how I missed that Luke Cage’s second season is just around the corner (June 22nd), but hot damn, it is and things are getting … hot.
Uh yeah, that’s not exactly what I meant. Looks like with no more Cottonmouth (*sob*), Alfre Woodard’s Mariah Dillard has gone full villain — “Harlem doesn’t need a hero; it needs a queen.” — and we’re in on that. But, she’s still got to deal with the hero we all need, Luke Cage.
Check out the excellent teaser, featuring The Fugees’ Ready or Not:
“Black women have always had superpowers, turning pain into progress.”
Alongside Mike Colter and Woodard, returning cast includes Simone Missick, Rosario Dawson and Theo Rossi. Joining the second round is Mustafa Shakir as John McIver aka Bushmaster, and Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson aka Nightshade. Catch Luke Cage Season 2 on Netflix in ten days, with episode one directed by Lucy Liu.
