Third Netflix Marvel series premieres Sept. 30
The second season of Netflix’s “Daredevil” premiered today, and dedicated bingers received a special treat after watching all 13 episodes: The first teaser for “Luke Cage.”
The third of Netflix’s five planned Marvel series stars Mike Coulter as the indestructible Luke Cage, a role he originated on “Jessica Jones,” starring Krysten Ritter, which dropped in November.
“I guess you guys haven’t heard about me,” Coulter says in the teaser, which autoplays after the final episode of “Daredevil,” as several gunmen aim their weapons at him. “I’m about sick of always having to buy new clothes.”
Cheo Hodari Coker will write the first two episodes of “Luke Cage” in addition to serving as showrunner and executive producer on the series from Marvel Studios in association with ABC Studios. Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Rosario Dawson and Sonia Braga will also star.
“Luke Cage” will be followed by “Iron Fist,” which recently cast “Game of Thrones” star Finn Jones in the lead role. The four heroes will then team up for “The Defenders.”
The entire first season of “Marvel’s Luke Cage” hits Netflix on Sept. 30.
