Marvel and Netflix have released a large new batch of photos from Marvel’s Luke Cage as well as three character posters for three of the show’s more shady individuals (literally in one case – he’s called Shades). The first season will be made available in its entirety on Netflix on 30 September. Don’t forget to check out our 21 Things You Need To Know About Luke Cage feature to get you in the mood.
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.
