Luke Cage (Netflix)

I don't think he actually has his own thread yet so, given that we finally have a first full length trailer, I thought I'd make one.

I wonder who they'll introduce? He's got a few villains in his rogue gallery, including his brother Coldfire.

And hopefully we'll see plenty of Iron Fist, Jones, and maybe Daredevil since Defenders is coming as well.

For me, the best part happens in the first 8 seconds. laughing

I hope he has more feats like that one, because that feat alone totally shits on anything he visibly did in Jessica Jones, in terms of strength. That feat is almost comparable to Spiderman's car catch in Civil War, though there are some obvious differences. Beyond strength, Spiderman had the speed and dexterity to actually grab hold of the car, whereas Luke simply shoulderchecked it. But at the end of the day, both of them stopped large, speeding vehicles dead in their tracks, and did it seemingly without sustaining any injuries.

Someone punches through a wall at 2:07, and I don't know. Maybe it's just the cloud of cement dust throwing me off, but that fist seems a bit pale to be Luke's.

Well to be fair Jessica also started out with something impressive feats but ultimately turneed out to be meh. However with this trailer my initial concern that Luke would be too grounded has be dispelled.

Though I have to say Harlem looks pretty good for a city that had a Hulk fight 8 years ago.

Seems like Daredevil repackaged with a black guy. Same basic plot of a superpowered do-gooder cleaning up a large organised crime syndicate plaguing their poor NYC neighborhood.

That's my main concern with this series. Redundancy. As you mentioned, based on this first trailer, the plot sounds very similar to season 1 of Daredevil. And beyond that, how many times can we watch Luke steamroll through a group of armed thugs before it gets dull? But hopefully they will add in a few more superpowered characters, sideplots etc. to keep it fresh. They did a decent job with both seasons of DD, as well as Jessica Jones, so I am remaining optimistic.

Well...that's what the original Luke Cage comics were about, and still largely are about. Just like Daredevil was mirroring the comics that had Matt in court by day, and on the rooftops at night as DD. They can't stray too far from the source without it not being Luke Cage anymore.

I know, but a lot of people who watch these shows have never actually picked up a comic with these characters in it (especially where JJ is concerned. So many people I know had never even heard of her before the Netflix show). So, while the writers obviously have to try and stay true to the comics as much as possible, they have to keep it rich/fresh enough to entertain a more mainstream audience as well.

So the character we see played by Mahershala Ali seems to be Cottonmouth. He is listed as Cornell Stokes on IMDB, and in other articles.

On Geeking Out they had an interview where they talked about the premise and it seems the main theme will be Luke's reluctance to become a superhero. Kinda makes sense - if you associate superheroes with tights and flashy costumes, flying around battling robots and aliens, then a guy from the streets of Harlem who spent time in prison would find difficulty identifying himself as a superhero.

So this series occurs roughly around the same time as the events of season 2 of Daredevil.

I thought the nurse was a love interest for Daredevil. Damn that's cold, chick finds someone with true power and jumps ship.

Well, with Cage there is a hell of a lot less bleeding over her furniture.

Yeah but Jessica Jones looks like Michael Jackson if you really stare at her face.

I'm talking MJ in his "I really do look white and also like someone ate part of my nose" phase.

I was reading this and was meh, till i realized and remembered that Luke and also Jessica should be stronger than Spidey. So with JJ feats on her series being average, it's gonna be real sad if they make Luke look like a bare 1 tonner.
