New ‘Luke Cage’ Trailer Unleashes Mahershala Ali and Alfre Woodard

Luke Cage Netflix Series
Luke Cage is this year’s most radical superhero series simply because the lead characters are all black folks, which means Marvel Studios had to get it right. In the series, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is an ex-con trying to rebuild his life after a botched experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin — and the show’s latest trailer lets us in on what that looks like.

The previous trailer focused on Luke Cage in full beast mode, but the new trailer gives us glimpses of other characters and storylines. The clip is set in modern day Harlem, in which Luke Cage can be seen on a revenge warpath as he battles villains, played by Mahershala Ali and Alfre Woodard. We also get a chance to see Colter interact with allies Rosario Dawson and Simone Missick. Rapper Method Man also makes a cameo appearance.

Luke Cage will be available to stream in the US and Canada on Sept. 30.
