With all the hype surrounding Avengers: Infinity War, it might be easy to forget that Luke Cage Season 2 is dropping next month. In preparation for the show’s sophomore season, Netflix and Marvel have released a brand new clip showing the bulletproof Harlem hero in action!
The clip seems almost perfectly timed to catch the attention of NFL Draft fans, as it sees Luke running through a combine event and leaving a series of broken records in his wake. While the short scenes give us nothing in terms of story or plot for the second season, it highlights Luke’s particular strengths and abilities, as well as the Harlem setting. While we don’t yet know many details about the plot, we do know that the show will feature Danny Rand A.K.A Iron Fist, and that it will also include Sopranos star Annabella Sciorra as a new villain. Check out the official synopsis below:
“After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.”
Luke Cage Season 2 will release on June 22nd.
