The teaser for Luke Cage at San Diego Comic-Con certainly impressed fans and got them wanting just a little more before the series debut next month. Well Netflix has you covered as they have officially released the full trailer for the upcoming Marvel show. Take a look below!
Sweet Christmas indeed!
Colter really gets to shine in this trailer. Showing off his cool calmness, but then turning on a dime to get serious about protecting his home, albeit reluctant to do so at first, which is all the more highlighted by the appropriately blaring hip-hop soundtrack of the trailer. It just brings the character and the setting to life in helping to further set the tone and feel of the show.
Plus we get to have our first good look at Mahershala Alias as the series villain Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes and just how vicious he is in ruling Harlem. We also get a feeling that Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple will feature into the show more than previously thought.
Also briefly shown is the origin of how Luke got his enhanced strength and bulletproof skin, which will get explored in the season after being mentioned on Jessica Jones. In addition to that, if you look real closely to what Luke was wearing as he was being experimented on, you’ll notice he’s wearing a very familiar piece of head gear he’s been known to sport.
Luke Cage is the latest venture between Marvel Studios and Netflix as they continue to further expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe and also set up for The Defenders coming up next year.
Now it doesn’t seem that from the trailer the two biggest people in Luke’s life, future wife Jessica Jones and BFF Danny Rand/Iron Fist will pop up, but you never really know what surprises are in store with something from Marvel Studios.
