Luke-Cage-1

Sweet Christmas comes early this year! This coming Friday the 13-episode-long first season of Netflix and Marvel’s Luke Cage goes live on the streaming service. The third Marvel series, following in the footsteps of the bone-crunching Daredevil and the psychologically-scarred Jessica Jones, stars Mike Colter as Harlem’s hero – the man with the unbreakable skin – Luke Cage.

It’s a show many of us here have been looking forward to watching and our secret TheMovies bunker is fully stocked with all the popcorn, chips, dips, beverages, left-over braai meat and adult nappies we need for a weekend binge-watching session; as well as a bottle of citronella spray and a soothing vanilla-scented ball-gag for Nick.

In case you’ve missed some of our stories over the last few months, here’s the rather brief show synopsis:

Given super-strength and durability by a sabotaged experiment, a wrongly accused man escapes prison to become a superhero for hire.

I very much like what I see here as we get what’s probably the most in-depth look (for a trailer) at just what we can expect from the series. Luke Cage has a distinct aesthetic compared to the above-mentioned Marvel/Netflix shows, and while Mike Colter’s Luke Cage may be just as reluctant a superhero as Daredevil and Jessica Jones, he’s also an unstoppable in-your-face force – unless you find his weak spot.

So, are you going to be binge-watching along with the rest of us?

As I said above, all thirteen episodes of Luke Cage season one goes live on Netflix on 30 September. It stars Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Alfre Woodard, Frankie Faison, Simone Missick, Erik LaRay Harvey, Darius Kaleb, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley and Kellen C. Wingate.
