Luke Cage takes a back seat to the villains in the final trailer for the Netflix series.
The trailer mostly focuses on Mariah, who since the end of season one has tightened her grip on Harlem and its gun-running operations. It turns out Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir), who we’ve mostly seen beating on Luke to this point, is also not a big fan of Mariah, which is kind of a problem since he’s just as strong and bulletproof as Luke and has some moves as opposed to Luke’s “smack fu.” Interestingly, Shades (Theo Rossi) also plays a role in this trailer: It appears his affection for Mariah is sincere. Hey, if two gangsters can’t make it work, who can?
Cheo Hodari Coker returns as showrunner, as well as executive producer, and the cast includes Mike Coulter alongside Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, and Rosario Dawson
Luke Cage season 2 will be available for streaming on June 22.
