Note to self: Never exchange fisticuffs with Marvel’s Luke Cage.
In this new clip from the Netflix series (premiering Friday, Sept. 30), the soft-spoken hero runs into a group of criminals who are in the midst of a restaurant robbery. When one of the henchmen attempts to show off “what he’s known for” by unleashing a punch, he — mild gore alert! — breaks his hand on the face of the indestructible man.
Starring Mike Colter, Luke Cage details 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).
