Luke Cage trailer leads Iron Fist, and The Defenders teasers at Marvel Comic-Con panel
Staff Reporter | On 22, Jul 2016
Marvel unveiled a new Luke Cage trailer at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, at a panel that was stuffed with teasers and videos.
“The world is ready for a bulletproof black man,” Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker told the audience at the event. “It’s got a ’90s vibe but very much of today, and I can’t wait for you to see more of it.”
“As we know there aren’t a lot of African American superheroes,” he added.
Coker was joined by lead star Mike Colter, who first played Cage in Jessica Jones last year, alongside Afre Woodard, Frank Whaley, House of Cards’ Mahershala Ali, Sons Of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi and Simone Missick. The panel was moderated by Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb.
Coker described the series as “relentless”, saying he “wanted the 13-episodes to feel like an album”.
“I’m so proud and I can’t wait for you to see it,” added Colter.
All episodes of Luke Cage are released on Netflix on Friday 30th September 2016.
But that was just the start of the show, as the panel want on to debut new teaser trailers for Iron Fist and The Defenders, soundtracked by Nirvana’s Come As You Are – plus a mash-up of a whole bunch of shows, just for heck of it. Punisher actor Jon Bernthal even reportedly turned up to say “Luke Cage looks very very good” – and remind everyone that he has his own Punisher spin-off series in the works too. He also confirmed that Daredevil has been renewed for Season 3.
