Marvel's Luke Cage — Comic-Con Teaser Trailer


added: Thu, Jul 21st '16

He has superhuman powers and unbreakable skin. And now he has his own Netflix series.

Check out the very first teaser trailer for "Luke Cage," the latest entry in Marvel's street-level superhero franchise, starring Mike Colter as the titular New York defender.

Netflix just premiered the teaser at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and it reveals an interesting tidbit about street-hero Luke Cage: He likes it raw ... Oooh baby, he likes it rawww!

Created and written by Cheo Hodari Coker, the screenwriter of "Notorious" and producer of "Ray Donovan," the Netflix superhero actioner is also starring Mahershala Ali, Frankie Faison, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, and Frank Whaley.

Paul McGuigan, the director of "Victor Frankenstein" and "Push," is directing the first two episodes of the series, which will begin streaming on Friday, September 30.

Note: Luke Cage will join Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and yet-to-be-released Iron Fist in Marvel's new superhero team series called "The Defenders," which premieres sometime in 2017. (Update: A newly-released logo teaser for "The Defenders" has been added to the above video.)

After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city -- forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
