Right after the SDCC panel ended, Netflix and Marvel released the teaser for LUKE CAGE!
We didn’t have to wait long. Moments after the panel finished Thursday night, Marvel’s LUKE CAGE teaser appeared on YouTube. It definitely shows off a different flavor from DAREDEVIL and JESSICA JONES. During the panel, the show-runner Cheo Coker talked about music playing a powerful role in the series. His meaning is gloriously apparent in the trailer, as it’s soundtrack is a funky 70’s beat. We also get to see Luke Cage in full attack mode, mowing through a couple dozen armed thugs.

Other highlights from the panel included The Punisher, aka Jon Bernthal, making a surprise appearance and asking to see a clip again, and the cast discussing the series. Coker in a very meta moment declared “the world is ready for a bulletproof black man.” Noticeably missing from panel was Rosario Dawson. They promised she was in the series, but said she was currently filming another Marvel property.
LUKE CAGE premieres on Netflix September 30th, 2016.
