Luke Cage Breaks Bones and Catches Bullets in New Clip
Mike Colter's Power Man teaches a group of criminals some manners in a new clip from Luke Cage, which debuts the first season in its entirety on Friday, September 30. The scene features Luke Cage interrupting a robbery, telling these would-be thieves that their tone is disrespectful. Unfortunately for these crooks, they aren't aware that Luke Cage has impenetrable skin and incredible powers, which they learn quite quickly.
The series is the third in the Marvel Netflix lineup, following the releases of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, leading up to the future release of Iron Fist, which is currently in production, and ultimately, The Defenders. Given Luke Cage and Iron Fist's connection in the comics as "Heroes for Hire," where they would do good deeds for the public for a price, it's possible that Power Man could surface in the Iron Fist show, but we don't know for sure. Netflix hasn't announced when production will begin on The Defenders quite yet.
Luke Cage, also known as Power Man, gained his abilities from a sabotaged experiment that left him with superhuman strength, and unbreakable skin. He is attempting to rebuild his life in New York City. Ultimately, he gets pulled into conflict, all resulting from the past he is trying to bury. As was teased in Jessica Jones, the two are love interests for one another in the comic book world as well, so it's certainly possible that Krysten Ritter could make a cameo. It was recently confirmed that, while Jessica Jones was renewed, that show's second season will come after The Defenders.
It was also recently confirmed that this first season of Luke Cage will overlap with Daredevil Season 2. Daredevil star Charlie Cox revealed at a convention appearance that a scene featuring Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple with a cut over her eye intersects with this first season of Luke Cage. We're not sure if there are other instances where both shows will overlap.
Luke Cage features a very promising, star-studded cast including fan-favorite Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Mahershala Ali (Cornell Stokes), Theo Rossi (Alvarez), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), and Frank Whaley (Detective Scarfe). Cheo Hodari Coker serves as executive producer and showrunner of Luke Cage. Take a look at this new clip below, via Netflix, to see Luke Cage teach a few crooks some manners.
