After the August 2017 release of Marvel’s The Defenders, the Netflix TV Marvel universe had virtually stepped into it’s phase 2. The latest release was Jessica Jones season 2, which just premiered on Netflix this week!
Besides that, we have only had mere speculation about the other three shows, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Finally, Netflix has released a first trailer for Luke Cage‘s upcoming season, along with some exclusive stills of Luke Cage in action in season two.
In the new trailer, we see Luke Cage showcasing his abilities, saying, “You can’t burn me, you can’t blat me, and you definitely can’t break me.” He then calls out to the world saying, “You wanna test me? Step up! I’m right here.” This statement is met with am encouraging shout from someone off-screen saying, “Get paid, black man, get paid!”
This could indicate that season 2 will explore the “hero for hire” storyline that Luke Cage goes through, in the Comicbooks, along with Danny Rand/Iron Fist.
Although we are still unsure as of yet if other Defenders will be making crossover appearances, we do know that some Luke Cage regulars such as Misty Knight (Simone Missick,) and Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) will be coming back for season 2.
