“You may be bulletproof, but Harlem ain’t.” The newest full trailer for Marvel and Netflix’s Luke Cage feels like an urban crime drama opus. A story of a man coming to terms with his gift, and choosing to use it to clean up the streets. Basically, it’s everything you could want out of a Luke Cage series — at least at a glance.
Check it out:
“There are politicians and then there are shady characters that function on the other side of the law,” lead actor Mike Colter told Entertainment Weekly in two videos. “Who does what? I won’t say, but this becomes a situation where there are a lot of people who want to help Harlem and think they have Harlem’s best interests, but, ultimately, just because they think or say they have Harlem’s best interests, sometimes they’re being very selfish or being very short-sighted. So sometimes what they’re doing is actually harming the community.
So this is where Luke comes in because Luke is a person who likes to, he observes and he listens and he takes in to account what people tell him, and he’s a pretty smart guy himself and he understands that some peoples’ way may not be the best may not be the best in the big picture so ultimately Luke has to get involved because there are a lot of things that happen, a lot of people get hurt, a lot of lives are lost and unfortunately he’s the only one who is capable of actually helping deal with this because sometimes the law enforcement is actually not the best because they’re not aware or they’re not capable, or maybe they’re corrupt. So, without getting into too many details, Luke Cage is gonna have to step up and be the man.”
Luke Cage will be released on Netflix later this year on September 30th 2016.
