Luke Cage is the Superhero We Need


It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! From the moment we spied Mike Colter’s quietly powerful Luke Cage in Jessica Jones, we knew we wanted … we needed more. The long wait is almost over, and following that initial tease a couple weeks ago, we finally have a full trailer. It’s sly, it’s glorious, and Luke Cage is the gloriously, bulletproof black superhero we need and deserve, not the token in a series full of white people; rather a fully fleshed, headlining character. Surrounded by an excellent group of fellow actors — Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali, Frankie Faison, Erik LaRay Harvey, Rosario Dawson, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley, Sônia Braga — there’s no way this Netflix outing isn’t a huge hit and, by gum, a diverse Marvel hit is something the entire world is craving. Just sink into this beauty of a trailer, and tell me you’re not frothing at the mouth for September 30th.




Meet me on the couch next month.
