Trailer And Poster For Netflix And Marvel's Upcoming Series 'Luke Cage' Show Us What To Expect

Marvel Studios has certainly found a way to do their street level heroes justice without having them lead their own films. The partnership between them and Netflix has already brought us the likes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, and will also be bringing us Iron Fist, The Defenders, Punisher, and of course Luke Cage himself. Mike Colter will be returning as the famed comic book character he previously portrayed in Jessica Jones, this time leading his own show on the streets of Harlem, New York.

Below is the full trailer for Netflix's Luke Cage:
Unlike the trailer released at Comic-Con, this one gives us a better idea of the story and supporting character we'll be seeing in the show. Rosario Dawson's character Claire Temple who fans will recognize from Daredevil will apparently be playing a significant role in the show if this trailer is anything to go by. We also get a peak of the origins of Cage and how he got his powers in an experiment done on him while he was in prison.

Show runner Cheo Hodari Cooker has already described the show as superhero version of the hit series The Wire, with a lot of it dealing with street level crime and the corrupt politics of Harlem. The show will also be going for a very 90s hip hop vibe that the trailer itself gives off, and the soundtrack will certainly factor into that as well. Below are a few official images released from the show portraying a few characters including Cage, Temple, Alfred Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades Alvarez, and Mahershala Ali as the big baddie Cornell 'Cottonmouth' Stokes. You can see the images below:
It seems like Luke Cage has a strong cast of supporting characters and actors that'll surely make the narrative even more interesting. Having said that, one can't help but wonder if any other heroes will be making an appearance throughout the series, specifically Cage's partner in crime in the comics Danny Rand, who is set to appear in his own show very soon. Can we expect to see the Heroes for Hire unite on screen in an early introduction for the character? One can only hope so.
So are you going to be watching Luke Cage in December? Did the trailer impress you? Let us know below!
