Move over, Thanos – Bushmaster is here. Harlem’s newest menace makes his presence known, as Marvel’s Luke Cage officially busts out its first trailer. And if Cage weren’t ceding the spotlight enough, Misty Knight is armed and ready to take it.
Marvel fans are still waiting to learn if the TV branch can acknowledge Infinity War, but the two sides were closer than we knew. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo now admit that screenwriters considered including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Defenders and all the rest.
Marvel’s Luke Cage is officially out of hiding. The Harlem hero is ready to show off his full strength in Season 2, and our first clip from the June premiere is perfectly timed to all the college athletes going pro with the NFL Draft.
Now that Luke Cage and Iron Fist have formally met, is a fan-favorite team-up in the works? New comments from showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and star Mike Colter have us questioning the future of either solo series, as well as The Defenders at large.
The arrival of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage Season 2 left us wondering what next the Marvel Netflix universe might build toward. No official return for The Defenders has yet been confirmed, and star Krysten Ritter now ominously suggests “I don’t think we are doing it again.”
Sorry Jessica Jones – looks like Luke Cage is stealing a bit of your thunder. Marvel’s hardest hero is already breaking down the walls of his own second season; promising a June premiere with the first footage of Season 2.
