Another Defender is coming back to the Netflix, and he looks all set to wreak havoc. In March we got the season 2 of Jessica Jones which got good reviews and was liked by the audiences after the debacle of The Defenders series. Now her lover, Luke Cage will be back with a season 2 to maintain the much-needed calm in his city Harlem. Netflix released a trailer for the upcoming season along with the air date. The first season of the Luke Cage got to a good start, but near the end, it lost its track. However, it still ranks above the Iron Fist and The Defenders. Alongside this, he was the primary element who acted as the backbone of Defenders and kept the show from crumbling to pieces.
The first season gave us the origin story of Luke Cage and how he accepts his powers to help his neighborhood. In doing so, he finds himself face to face with a powerful enemy, Diamond who gives him a hell of a fight. However, by the end we see him emerging a mighty hero who is accepted by the society and is accustomed to his abilities. In season 2 we will see he has become a hero of Harlem and how everyone looks up to him. But what will happen when the unbreakable Luke Cage is beaten up by the powerful foe. Will society still respect him or will they feel safe under his protection? These questions will be answered in the upcoming season.
The trailer is powerful and filled with action. You see him getting hit with bullets, torched by fire but still, he comes out unhurt as always. However, things take a turn when a new nemesis comes around who is able to make him bleed with his bare hands. The series will also see the returning characters of Misty Knight, Mariah Dillard and Claire Temple portrayed by Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, and Rosario Dawson respectively.
Luke Cage season 2 looks more promising than the season 1, and we hope it just adds up to the praise which the character received in The Defenders. The excitement for this Marvel is quite high, and we are sure that Luke Cage will be a hell of entertaining series packed with action and fantastic story. The series airs on Netflix on June 22nd.
