Netflix and Marvel‘s Luke Cage is almost here, by the end of the week we’ll all be binge watching the latest in a string (Daredevil, Jessica Jones) of highly entertaining and critically acclaimed Marvel television series. If only ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could get on the band wagon. Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage first appeared in Jessica Jones and now he’s got his own problems to sort out. Will there be some hints or even a cameo of the upcoming Iron Fist? Maybe, but even if there isn’t Marvel has set a high bar and it will be interesting to see if Luke Cage can maintain that high standard.Let’s get right to it.

Now if that trailer didn’t make you want to check out Luke Cage, nothing will. Luke Cage has an impressive cast that includes Mahershala Ali as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Theo Rossi as Shades, Frank Whaley as Rafael Scarfe and the return of Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, the glue that holds the Marvel Netflix Universe together.
