Netflix’s new trailer for Luke Cage shows that Harlem’s hero can get knocked out.
The trailer has Luke Cage embracing his fame after the events of Defenders until Bushmaster played by Mustafia Shakir shows up to claim Harlem. Bushmaster wants control of Harlem’s gangs, something that not only puts him on Luke’s to-punch list, but also in the crosshairs of Mariah (Alfre Woodard,) who has consolidated her control of Harlem and isn’t interested in interlopers. Fortunately, Luke isn’t without backup, as Misty Knight (Simone Missick) has a bright shiny new robot arm to beat up goons with.
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 will be available for streaming June 22nd.
