Luke Cage season 2: check out the first trailer and poster

Posted Filed under

Marvel’s Luke Cage Netflix series returns next month, and now we have a poster and a trailer to prove it. Mike Colter reprises the role of the bulletproof ‘hero of Harlem’ in this second batch of episodes, which will follow on from the events of Luke Cage season 1 and The Defenders season 1.

Cheo Hodari Coker returns to the Luke Cage showrunner hot seat, and Rosario Dawson, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi and Alfre Woodard are among the returning cast. New faces in the cat include Mustafa Shakir (The Night Of), Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure) and Annabella Sciorra (The Sopranos).

Luke Cage season 2 will tackle the idea of fame, and how Luke deals with being an idol to his local community. The first trailer touches on this theme, as well as showcasing some brilliantly brutal action. Enjoy…

And here’s the Luke Cage season 2 poster…

As this trailer shows, Mustafa Shakir’s Bushmaster is the big new baddie that Luke Cage will have to fight. Clearly, he packs a punch that makes Luke feel pain, and he has Harlem firmly in his sights. In the comics, Bushmaster’s body mutated into a highly durable ‘unliving metal’ after an explosion. He could be the toughest threat yet for Luke, in terms of physical threat.

Luke Cage season 2 drops on Netflix on June 22nd, 2018. We’re looking forward to finding out how Luke punches his way out of this particular spot of bother.
