Harlem is a gangster's paradise in the final Luke Cage trailer

New, 4 comments

Marvel's Luke Cage is only days away from its premiere on Netflix, so there's just enough time for one more trailer. In this new spot we get a closer look not at Luke Cage, but his main adversary, Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes, played House of Cards alum Mahershala Ali. Cottonmouth is gangster supreme in Harlem, and is clearly as dangerous as he is charismatic. But with the indestructible Luke Cage in his sights, the neighborhood has suddenly gotten a lot more dangerous.

Luke Cage is only the latest Marvel series on Netflix, and early reviews promise a taut, thrilling action series that draws lovingly from the black experience. The series premieres this Friday.
