Luke Cage Is Indestructible, But His Wardrobe Budget Isn't (Video)

Clothes do not make the man in Marvel’s Luke Cage.

In a new teaser for the Netflix series, the titular hero finds himself on the receiving end of a shoot-out, during which his outfit takes a beating.

“I guess you guys haven’t heard about me, have you?” Luke says as the criminals’ bullets ricochet off him. While he is impervious to gunshot wounds, his hoodie and jacket aren’t, leading him to lament, “I’m about sick of always having to buy new clothes.”

Premiering Friday, Sept. 30 and starring Mike Colter, Luke Cage will detail the evolution of its titular toughie after he has relocated to Harlem and is in the process of picking up the pieces following his failed relationship with Jessica Jones. Having been endowed by a failed experiment with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke is pulled out of the shadows to fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

The cast also includes Mahershala Ali (as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Theo Rossi (Shades), Frank Whaley (Rafael Scarfe) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple).

Next in queue at Netflix, after Luke Cage, will be Marvel’s Iron Fist, followed by the eight-episode Marvel’s The Defenders team-up event.
