Netflix has released the key art for its new original series Marvel’s Luke Cage, the third show in the Defenders series to launch on the internet TV network.
The series stars Mike Colter as Luke Cage (previously introduced in Marvel’s Jessica Jones). The new series follows his revolution after he has relocated to Harlem and is in the process of picking up the pieces following his failed relationship with Jessica Jones.
Colter is joined in the series by Mahershala Ali (Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Theo Rossi (Shades), Frank Whaley (Rafael Scarfe) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple).
Marvel’s Luke Cage will premiere globally on September 30 at 12:01 AM PT. The series follows the launches of Marvel’s Daredevil and Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and leads up to the future release of Marvel’s Iron Fist, and ultimately, Marvel’s The Defenders.
Marvel’s Luke Cage is executive produced by series showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (SouthLAnd, Ray Donovan), Charles Murray (Roots) and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
