Luke Cage Is Internet Famous In Action-Packed Season 2 Trailer

Luke Cage Is Internet Famous In Action-Packed Season 2 Trailer

We learn that we are finally seeing another one of Luke Cage's iconic, snake-named villains - in this case, Bushmaster, whose real name is John McIver, portrayed in the series by Mustafa Shakir.

In the first full trailer for Marvel's Luke Cage season two, the man with the bulletproof skin has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem after clearing his name.

Here's the official synopsis for season 2 of Marvel's Luke Cage: "Luke Cage is back". We'll see if a similar switch happens in season 2. After his first solo season debuted back in 2016, and then being a part of The Defenders previous year, Harlem's Hero is back this summer.

However, things changed for our beloved hero about halfway through the trailer when a new, strong villain came into the picture. In the comics, Bushmaster is a crime boss who battles Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

The series is executive produced by showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (Ray Donovan), Jim Chory (Marvel's Jessica Jones), and Marvel's Head of Television Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Jessica Jones).

A theme for Season 2 seems to be Cage's dance with the dark side of sorts.

It also looks like Luke's partnership with Misty Knight, will continue in the new season. The premiere episode of the second season is directed by Lucy Liu. Yet, it was especially costly for Simone Missick's police detective Misty Knight, whose right arm was severed by the sword of the revived Hand co-founder Bakuto (Ramón Rodríguez). As you recall, the main villains of the first season were Cottonmouth, Mariah and Shades.

The trailer closes out with a meta moment when Misty and Luke discuss who's taking lead and he reminding her whose show it is.
