'Luke Cage' Season 2 Trailer: Bushmaster Wipes the Floor with Harlem's Hero
Luke Cage is getting cocky, and the Bushmaster is here to take him down. In the new “[BULLETPROOF]” trailer for Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, the villain known as Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir) shows the world he can beat up Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and intends to take over Harlem for himself.
On Monday, Netflix and Marvel released the trailer for Luke Cage Season 2, premiering on Netflix on June 22. Set after The Defenders, the trailer features Mike Colter reprising his role as Luke Cage, an ex-convict turned bulletproof citizen who has become a role model for his neighborhood in Harlem. But as Cage is starting to believe in his own hype, a new villain known as the Bushmaster appears, and a video of Bushmaster beating up Luke goes viral. Suddenly, Harlem’s gangs now have a weakness in their boogeyman.
The trailer also shows the return of Misty Knight (Simone Missick), Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) Shades (Theo Rossi), and Mariah (Alfre Woodard), who ominously teases her own rise as “Harlem needs a queen” more than it needs a hero. Meanwhile, Misty, who lost her arm in the Marvel/Netflix crossover The Defenders, receives a prototype design for her bionic arm.
While Luke Cage is bested by another bulletproof man with crazier moves, the new season trailer proves Cage could stand shoulder to shoulder with the heroes of Avengers: Infinity War. Of all the Netflix heroes, Cage could have stood a real chance against Thanos, or at least any one of his Black Order minions. On the bright side, it’s probably better that Cage doesn’t have to risk dissolving into dust like everyone else guys did.
As the Marvel/Netflix productions continue, fans will look forward to seeing more new seasons of their favorite heroes. Season 2 of Jessica Jones is in the books and up on Netflix. Season 3 of Daredevil and Season 2 of The Punisher are shooting now.
Marvel’s Luke Cage Season 2 will premiere June 22 on Netflix.
