Marvel’s ‘Luke Cage’ comes out of the shadows with first full-length trailer

You might be bulletproof, but Harlem ain’t

You may have heard of him through his association with a certain hard-drinking, short-fused, hot mess of a resourceful private investigator named Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).  But come this fall, you will know the name of Marvel’s Luke Cage, the man with the unbreakable skin and superhuman strength: the latest member of Marvel’s Defenders.

The subject of an experiment in prison, Luke Cage returns to Harlem in hopes of staying out of trouble – or not making trouble.  But Harlem is the one that is in trouble.  Once believed that being a hero can be put a target on your back, Luke Cage must now believe that being a hero is the only hope that will bring unity in his neighborhood.

“Sometimes, if you want justice, you have to get it yourself,” said Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), the nurse who treated the wounds of Marvel’s Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Marvel’s Jessica Jones.

No longer able to walk on by, Luke Cage will begin his legacy and reputation as a hero-for-hire: standing up for the people of Harlem in the war on crime and corruption.

Marvel’s Luke Cage premieres Friday, September 30 on Netflix.
