Marvel's Luke Cage: Season 1 — Featurette: 'Who is Luke Cage?'


added: Tue, Sep 20th '16

Harlem superhero Luke Cage (Mike Colter) doesn't need some stupid cape to rid the city of its crime problem. He just needs to knock down a few doors and take on the city's most ruthless gunrunner, Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes (Mahershala Ali).

Have a look at what motivates Marvel's latest bad-ass street avenger to go from lowly barber shop employee to reluctant street-fighting savior in a newly-released featurette for Netflix's upcoming New York-set superhero series, "Luke Cage."

Created by "Notorious" scribe and "Ray Donovan" producer Cheo Hodari Coker, the 13-episode series, which also stars Rosario Dawson, Frankie Faison, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, and Simone Missick, will be premiering globally next week on Friday, September 30.

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.
