Marvel/Netflix have released a new two-and-a-half minute featurette introducing the main man in their tantalisingly imminent next co-production Marvel’s Luke Cage. All 13 episodes, starring Mike Colter as Marvel’s invincible man (the name he surely would have been called if Tony Stark hadn’t nabbed the adjective invincible to describe Iron Man) will be released for your binge-watching pleasure on 30 September.
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows – or rather the barber shop where he’s trying to keep a low profile – and must fight a battle for the heart of his city.
As well as Mike Colter the cast includes Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Frank Whaley as Rafael Scarfe, Mahershala Ali as Cottonmouth, Theo Rossi as Shades and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard. Cheo Hodari Coker (Notorious, NCIS: Los Angeles) is the showrunner.
