Every installment of the Netflix MCU has been greatly anticipated. If you are like me, you have really ready for the next adventure with Luke Cage. Since his introduction Luke Cage has been one of the most fun of the Defenders. Mike Colter’s portrayal of the hero is every bit as perfect as Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. He was a stand out in Jessica Jones, and though his first season fell apart toward the second half, it wasn’t because of him. His relationship with Iron Fist in Defenders gave us hope for a Heroes For Hire series, and since then we have been waiting.
Well wait no longer. Luke Cage is back! While Jessica Jones is primed to return tomorrow March 8th, Netflix has dropped the first trailer for season 2 of Luke Cage and when we’ll get to see him:
So there you have, June 22, Luke Cage is back. Great time to be a Comicbook fan. Everywhere you look, it’s new seasons and films. Only a few months till Cage hits our screens, the synopsis for season 2 reads as:
After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.
Cheo Hodari Coker returns as the showrunner for the new season that sees Mike Colter return. Along side Colter, we will see Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Mustafa Shaki, Gabrielle Dennis, and Rosario Dawson all make their way back. As well it is exciting to note that Lucy Liu will be directing the premier episode.
As the trailer dropped this morning I recorded my reaction, as I have been excited to see what happens to Luke Cage.
