Watch: New Luke Cage Street Trailer packs a punch ahead of 30 September release
Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali and a cameo from a Wu-Tang Clan member give a glimpse of the action and humour that Marvel's Luke Cage has in store for fans
Marvel and Netflix continue to prove that they know what their fans want. While the new Luke Cage trailer didn't have much more to show than the official trailer posted over a month ago; the cameos, soundtrack and vibe of the trailer proved that Cheo Hodari Coker, the showrunner of Marvel's Luke Cage, knows his source material.
Harlem's Street Level Hero got the '70s blaxploitation treatment that it deserved with the hip-hop classic track Shimmy Shimmy Ya by Ol' Dirty Bastard playing in the background, and a clip of the show's antagonist Cottonmouth, played by Mahershala Ali, standing in front of a image of The Notorious B.I.G. before declaring himself as the king.
Rosario Dawson also reprised her role as Claire Temple acting as a link between the Marvel/Netflix superhero shows. It also serves as a reminder to hardcore fans that Luke Cage gets us a step closer to Marvel's The Defenders.
The cameo that made this trailer was the appearance of Method Man, a member of the legendary hip hop collective Wu-Tang Clan. The scene with the artist gave the trailer the classic Marvel humour that fans have come to know and love. Another Marvel tradition that you shouldn't miss out on is the Stan Lee cameo!
We also got more footage of Mike Colter in action as the eponymous Luke Cage, putting his super strength and unbreakable skin to good use by casually brushing off bullet wounds. The final trailer comes ahead of the 30 September release.
