Yesterday’s teaser trailer gave us a June 22nd date; today we get an idea of what Harlem’s hero will be up to in Season 2. Following the events of The Defenders, Luke finds himself back in Harlem and discovers his new found fame can cut both ways:
In Marvel’s Luke Cage Season 2, 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.
The photos give us a nice look at Misty’s new arm (perhaps courtesy of newcomer Tilda Johnson?), the refurbished Pop’s, Luke’s celebrity and our first look at Mustafa Shakir as John McIver, aka Bushmaster, and the brand of trouble he’s bringing to Harlem in his search for vengeance. We’ll have to wait for a full trailer to find out more, but it looks as though McIver and his crew mean business!
Luke Cage Season 2 is set to air June 22!
