etflix flexed its superhero muscle yesterday at San Diego Comic Con.They decided to roll out the big guns this year by giving comic book nerds what they wanted.
With fans already salivating for more after binging off Daredevil’s second season and Jessica Jones, these teasers were a welcomed sight. Netflix got the ball rolling dropping a tantalizing sizzle composed of its current Marvel line-up with a sprinkle of Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Jon Bernthal as the feared vigilante The Punisher.
Not too far after that the teaser for the highly anticipated Luke Cage series hit the net. The teaser showcases Cage’s powers on full display as he dispatches thugs to soundtrack of O.D.B’s classic record “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”. Cage’s main foe Cornell Stokes will be played by Mahershala Ali (House of Cards) and looks to be a thorn in the indestructible hero of Harlem’s side.
