In just around two months, Marvel and Netflix will be releasing their third pairing together in the lead up to the eventual team up in The Defenders. Following the successes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, they have set viewers expectations on a high level. From what we have seen early on in the promotion of Luke Cage, the series should live up to the these lofty expectations. Further promotional materials will continue to surface until the series debuts at the end of September, and one thing we have learned so far is that every episode title will be named after Gang Starr songs.
Now, we have learned what songs will be used as the titles for the first three episodes of the season. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has revealed the titles in a recent tweet.
#LukeCage . One “Moment of Truth.” Two: “Code of The Streets”. Three: “Who’s Gonna Take The Weight?

What do these titles mean for what the episodes hold? It is impossible to know for certain, but you can make broad guesses that episode one will give us some back story, episode two might focus on the rest of Harlem, and then episode three is Luke taking out a part of crime scene. However, episode titles do not always indicate what exactly we can expect. Does this mean we will also hear these songs in the episode themselves? We will have to wait and see.
Luke Cage will debut exclusively on Netflix at 12:01 a.m. PST on September 30th.
