“I guess you guys haven’t heard about me, have you?” That was a more than capable, deservedly confident Luke Cage posing a few common thugs a very pertinent observation framed as a rhetorical question. Obviously, they haven’t heard about him, because they think punches, chairs, dynamite and handguns are effective weapons against a man with diamond-hard skin. Well, in the very first, full-length Luke Cage clip recently released by Netflix, Luke Cage proceeds to educate a room brimming with surprisingly well-armed pugilists. Look up! Press play! Enjoy!
After 36 hours of surgery, and 17 months eating Hot Pockets® through a straw, I’m sure the unfortunate group of thugs tossed around like 6-year-olds mainlining high fructose corn syrup are finally VERY aware of the following:
1. The extraordinary individual going by the name Luke Cage.
2. The extraordinary things Luke Cage can do.
3. How many bullets Luke Cage can take before he comments about his always inflating clothing budget. The disposable income just isn’t there, so when he says something like, “I’m about sick of always having to buy new clothes,” it’s completely understandable.
Beating the hell out of you with a bathroom sink, Luke Cage debuts September 30th on Netflix and stars Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard) Frankie Faison (Pop), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Theo Rossi (Alvarez), Erik LaRay Harvey (Diamondback), Frank Whaley (Detective Scarfe), and Mahershala Ali (Cornell Stokes).
