Netflix’s New ‘Luke Cage’ Trailer Shows Harlem’s Hero Running the Streets (Video)

Marvel series starts streaming on Sept. 30

Luke Cage is ready to take back Harlem for the people in the new trailer for the Marvel/Netflix series of the same name.

Mike Colter plays Cage, who was blessed with unbreakable skin and super strength after a prison experiment went awry.

Initially content to fade into the background, Cage finds that he can’t sit idly by while gangsters like Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (Mahershala Ali) and his cousin, local politician Mariah Stokes (Alfre Woodard), try to choke the lifeblood out of Harlem.

Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley and Rosario Dawson also star in the series, with Dawson reprising her role as nurse Claire Temple from both “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones.”

Cheo Hodari Coker serves as showrunner in addition to executive producing along with Charles Murray and Jeph Loeb, who also serves as Marvel’s head of television.

The show is the third of five planned Marvel shows on the streaming service. “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones” have already aired their second and first seasons, respectively.

Next up will be “Iron Fist” starring Finn Jones as a young man who returns to New York with incredible martial arts skills that allows him to channel his chi energy into his strikes. All four characters will then join forces for “The Defenders” miniseries.

“Luke Cage” will debut on Sept. 30 on Netflix.
