With a little over a month until the premiere of ‘Luke Cage‘ on Netflix, it is time to finally start seeing some promos for the show, promos which should be pretty cool considering the fun stuff we got in advance of ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Jessica Jones,’ and ‘Daredevil’ Season 2 over the past couple of years. The first promo released is all about the dark side of being a superhero with impenetrable skin. Yep, you guessed it, Luke Cage apparently goes through a lot of clothing as he cannot keep wearing clothes with bullet holes in them. Could this maybe be a subtle tease that he is going to find someone to make him a costume capable of withstanding the same punishment he can? Who knows.
The clip is basically the longer version of a scene we have seen hinted at in the trailers, where Cage enters a gym and confronts some gangsters, who clearly have yet to learn about Cage’s powers and the fact that bullets mean nothing to him. We get to see some of his fighting style, and I enjoy that his style is much more of a street brawler, using his strength and invulnerability to overpower his adversaries, and not relying on anything too fancy, as say Daredevil might do in a similar situation. The clip ends when two of the gangsters pull out guns, and Cage comments that they have clearly not heard of him yet, which suggests that even though he flees to Harlem to start a new life, he cannot help being a hero and knows he will be making a name for himself.
Check out the clip for yourself below!
