After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, but he’s soon pulled out of the shadows to fight a battle for the heart of his city.
Colter is joined by Mahershala Ali (Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Theo Rossi (Shades), Frank Whaley (Rafael Scarfe) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple).
The series is the third in the Marvel Defenders series to launch on Netflix, following the earlier release of Marvel’s Daredevil and Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
The two companies will also bring audiences Marvel’s Iron Fist, and ultimately, Marvel’s The Defenders.
Last month a teaser trailer was debuted at San Diego Comic-Con where the two entertainment giants held a panel featuring the show’s cast.
