WATCH: Luke Cage Season 2 Gets a Trailer & Release Date
Luke Cage was just one step in the staircase of MARVEL-Netflix shows! One of the better reviewed of the series’, but definitely ran into some issues in the second half of Season 1.
Yep! That was the problem! He had LOADS of redemption in the “Defenders” Series that had Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist (Meh) and other characters coming together to stop the threat that had been building for 4 original seasons.. and it was pretty good! But now the Ninjas and Dragons under New York are gone, I think, and its time to focus on other stories that the well has to offer from these characters.. and it looks like we’re getting a “Heroes For Hire” origin. I HOPE!
June 22!! That’s pretty close! Almost tomorrow when you think about it! Especially seeing as Jessica Jones season 2 releases on Friday!! There area couple things of note in this trailer, but the most “WOW” of them all is the person shouting “Yeah! Get paid, Black Man!” This, I hope, is a reference to “Heroes for Hire”. We got a taste of this in Defenders! In the comics and numerous animated shows, Luke & Danny Rand (Iron Fist) actually team up to take down street-level criminals. For a fee. While Iron Fist was the weakest reviewed of the MARVEL-NETFLIX shows, their dynamic in Defenders was arguably the best part of the season and made me like Iron Fist. Mainly because Luke Cage just kept ripping on him for all of his “I’m immortal” talk and continuously getting his ass handed to him.
Either way, I’m pumped! The NETFLIX formula for this show is usually 2 villains. One in the first 4-6 episodes and then a new, larger threat that’s been there the whole time. I’m betting we see Iron Fist show up in the second half and I hope, I pray, I sacrifice goats to the thought that the credits that roll on the mid-season finale say “MARVEL’S Heroes 4 Hire”.
I’d literally lose my mind.
