Marvel Television and Netflix released the first teaser for Luke Cage during San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. During the panel, executive producer and showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker just how timely the series feels. He told the Ballroom 20 crowd, “When I think about what’s going on in the world right now, the world is ready for a bulletproof black man.”
The teaser looks great. Mike Colter’s Luke Cage debuted strongly in Marvel’s Jessica Jones last year, so the anticipation for the character having his own series was already high. This teaser kicks it up a few levels as we see Cage walking through gunfire and kicking down metal bars with ease. The best superhero television these days is on Netflix and that will continue with Luke Cage when it is available for streaming on September 30.
