The New Luke Cage Trailer Is Straight Bananas

The freshman season of Luke Cage had way more ups than downs, and despite losing one of the better villains of the Netflix/Marvel series’ it was an overall success. Season 2 is coming on June 22 and it looks like it is absolutely no joke! Bushmaster looks like the big bad we’ve wanted to see take on Luke and the series also returns some of our favorites from season 1. Don’t miss the “sidekick” banter towards the end.

What do you think of the trailer and what are your hopes for season 2? Let us know!

Annabella Sciorra Takes The Big Bad Role In Luke Cage Season 2

Image result for Annabella Sciorra

Annabella Sciorra, who has appeared in so many memorable roles over the years, will be taking her turn in the Marvel universe, landing in the role of Rosalie Carbone in the new season of Luke Cage. Sciorra has had an incredible film and TV career, with roles in movies like Hand That Rocks The Cradle, Jungle Fever, and What Dreams May Come, and shows like Sopranos, and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

The character of Carbone is an odd choice for Luke Cage and may hint at a larger connection to the Punisher, the hero most closely tied to her in the comics. While we wouldn’t be opposed to something tying in Cage to Punisher, so far, Netflix hasn’t announced the inclusion of any other heroes besides the Iron Fist. Cage’s sophomore season premieres on June 22nd, which is all-of-a sudden, not that far away!

We Get Our First Look At Misty Knight’s Bionic Arm

Well we are officially getting what everyone has been waiting for since the announcement this character would be part of Luke Cage Season 1. What is that you may be wondering….Misty Knight’s Bionic arm.

Thank you to Entertainment Weekly we get our first look at Simone Missick’s Misty Knight and her Bionic arm along with Luke Cage himself Mike Colter as some from looks from the shooting of season 2 of Luke Cage progresses. Now……..spoiler alert if you haven’t seen all of Marvel’s The Defenders yet, She now wields a prosthetic bionic arm to replace the one the Hand villain Bakuto (Ramón Rodríguez) sliced off in Marvel’s The Defenders. And for those who need a refresher, at the end of the team-up series, Misty wound up recovering in a hospital owned by Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and watched over by Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick).

Clearly, she’s back in action by the time she appears in Luke Cage season 2 — and thank you to EW for the exclusive first look at the NYPD detective sporting her high-tech enhancement alongside Luke (Mike Colter) and his unbreakable skin.

Luke Cage begins production on Season 2

It doesn’t seem to be slowing down or stopping for unbreakable Power Man more affectionately known as Luke Cage.

Now first this summer Luke will join forces with Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones and Danny Rand in Marvel’s The Defenders on Netflix and now production has begun on Season 2 of the highly popular series.

In the usual Marvel fashion we have no idea what’s going to happen in season two, but star Mike Colter has said it may deal with Luke’s public identity as the bulletproof hero of Harlem. And there has to be some effect from what happens in The Defenders.

Also expected to return are Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Theo Rossi as Shades and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard.

Marvel’s Netflix series have a full slate planned for the next year. The Defenders premieres Aug. 18 followed by The Punisher later this year. Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will debut new seasons in 2018.

 

With having seen season 1 and now rolling into Marvel’s The Defenders are you excited for season 2? What potential Marvel villian would you like to see? Who would you like to see portray them?

We have a “Defenders” trailer

marvel-the-defenders-netflix-team

Well it’s no longer just a teaser, we have an official trailer for the upcoming Netflix series Marvel’s The Defenders and we get kind of an idea how somethings come together.

We open with Det. Misty Knight interrogating Jessica Jones about interfering in a police case resulting in someone’s death until she is interrupted by her “new attorney” in Matt Murdock  (Daredevil). From there we see a freed from prison Luke Cage who reconnects with Claire Temple who tells him he should meet someone, who turns out to be Danny Rand stopping an assailant in an alley.

From there many interactions happen including Danny attempting to use the Iron Fist on Luke to no avail and a voice over monologue from Stick, Daredevil’s old teacher, talking how the four need to work together in “the battle for New York”. We even see Electra in the Hand’s mysterious Resurrection drum.

In this trailer we also get our first real look into Sigourney Weaver’s “Alexandria” Adnan yet still don’t know much more about her but what we she is she is surrounded by what can be assumed to be members of the Hand.

There is SO MUCH MORE but we want you to check out the the trailer before for yourself and let us know does this get you excited for the August premiere.
