Here we go folks, the highly anticipated spin-off of Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix series has its own first trailer. Netflix dropped the Marvel’s Luke Cage trailer today and it is spectacular. Marvel’s Luke Cage, which premieres globally on September 30, 2016 at 12:01am PT is the third show in the Defenders series to launch on Netflix. The series follows the releases of Marvel’s Daredevil and Marvel’s Jessica Jones, leading up to the future release of Marvel’s Iron Fist, and ultimately, Marvel’s The Defenders.
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, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
