Sneaky Netflix adding a first teaser trailer for its upcoming “Marvel’s Luke Cage” series at the very end of the final episode of “Daredevil” season 2, which premiered today.
The third of the Marvel/Netflix collaboration series, as announced on this blog last week, is now officially set to debut on the streaming platform in September.
Yes, I’ve already binge-watched the entire second season of “Marvel’s Daredevil” already. I got an early start; besides it’s a 13-episode season, with each episode being around 42 minutes.
But you don’t have to skip ahead to episode 13 just to watch the “Luke Cage” teaser; you can watch it right now, right here on Netflix’s website. No embed available yet unfortunately.
Keep in mind that it’s just a tease, so don’t expect a full trailer. It’s about 20 seconds long.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to seeing what’s been done with the character in his very own live-action series. September 30th can’t come soon enough!
Mike Colter plays Luke Cage, in the series. Mahershala Ali is Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, an adversary for the title character to battle against. Simone Missick is a variation of Misty Knight. Alfre Woodard plays a variation of another Luke Cage nemesis known as Black Mariah. And Theo Rossi is Shades (aka Alvarez), a career criminal and a nemesis to Cage.
Cheo Hodari Coker (“SouthLAnd,” “Ray Donovan”) is serving as writer, showrunner and Executive Producer.
