“There’s nothing that can hurt you, so what the hell are you afraid,” Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) asks Luke Cage (Mike Colter) in this new two-and-a-half-minute trailer for Marvel’s Luke Cage. An internet backlash, presumably, after previous Netflix/Marvel series have set the bar so high. Though if advance reviews are anything to go by, we have nothing to worry about – they’ve been positively glowing (and somewhere a DC forum prepares to go into “Marvel pays critics…” mode).
And isn’t it great to hear a line as mundane as, “Are you double-XL?” in a big action trailer?
All 13 episodes of Marvel’s Luke Cage season one will be released via Netflix on 30 September.
