Luke Cage may only be a few days away from appearing on Netflix (and stealing away all of our spare time this weekend), but the online service isn’t done teasing us with their newest Marvel show. Yesterday a new trailer dropped for the show, and it’s pretty great. Honestly, Friday can’t get here fast enough.
Luke Cage Season One premieres this Friday, September 30th.
At this point it shouldn’t be surprising that the trailer for a Netflix Marvel show looks amazing. This is, of course, because the two shows we’ve gotten so far (Daredevil and Jessica Jones) have both been amazing. So you shouldn’t be shocked to learn that yesterday’s trailer for Luke Cage… looks really awesome.
So, y’know, you should watch it.
All episodes of Luke Cage season one hit Netflix on September 30th.
Netflix’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been pretty resoundingly well received by the fandom, with one season of Jessica Jones and two seasons of Daredevil under its belt. But with so many series in production (as the cumulative franchises head towards The Defenders) and only so much room on the calendar, the question about when we’d see more of the already released series has been floating in the air.
Well, the good news is that season three of Daredevil and season two of Jessica Jones are still on track — but the bad news is that we won’t see them (or The Punisher) until at least 2018.
It makes perfect sense when you look at the schedule though, as Luke Cage comes out this fall, and Iron Fist and The Defenders coming in 2017. Netflix has been pretty clear that they want to put out two Marvel seasons a year, and this sticks with their pattern.
And with the quality of what we’ve gotten, is it such a terrible burden to wait?
With Daredevil getting second season, many have been asking exactly how Marvel and Netflix were planning on rolling out the remaining TV series (AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist) which are building towards The Defenders.
After AKA Jessica Jones premieres later this year, Netflix intends to roll out a new season every six months. Now, that includes things like Season 2 of Daredevil, so we’re still looking at several years before we get to see our heroes team up as The Defenders (at least formally).
Now, we may not end up getting a second season for every show on the list (and shows that get multiple seasons may not get them one per year), but since all the characters are set to reappear (and are geographically close to each other) it’s not like anyone is going to disappear entirely.
On this fortnightly installment of great justice, we talk about Marvel’s Defenders deal with Netflix, Star Wars Episode VII getting a release date, the Olympic Torch in Spaaaaaaace, Daisho Con 2013, a Urine Powered Robot, Nightwing appearing in Man of Steel 2… and we got a letter.
