Even though we saw a teaser trailer mere weeks ago – and just talked about said trailer on this week’s Suicide Squad / SDCC episode of Laser Time – Netflix / Marvel have released an All-New, Mostly Different trailer that paints a clearer picture of the show’s first season path.
As with Daredevil and Jessica Jones, it looks like we’re in for some hard-hitting crime drama with the occasional superhuman feat. Still loving all the close-quarters action in these shows, and unlike Murdock and Jones, Cage is actually bulletproof, meaning he can handle guns, knives and the like in a much more direct manner. Basically saying, I think we’re in for a lot of great physicality and brute force, rather than flips or agility.
We also see a bit more of Cottonmouth, who was a Kingpin-like Cage villain back in the day. Seeing him, plus Misty Knight and the Night Nurse really help this, the third Marvel Netflix show in two years, feel like its own thing, in its own “Luke Cage” world. Can’t wait to see how he and Danny Rand get along!
We also get a super brief look at Cage as he exited the device that gave him his unbreakable skin – and as he stands tall, we see a nice homage to his ’70s costume, complete with bracelets and headband.
High hopes for this one!
