SDCC: Teasers for Marvel/Netflix's 'Luke Cage,' 'Iron Fist,' and 'Defenders' Debut
As the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con begins, Thursday's 'Luke Cage' panel offered up a lot of information for all of Marvel's Netflix shows. Daredevil has been renewed for season three and production for the Punisher series is set to begin. New teasers for Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the team-up Defenders were also shown.
The Luke Cage teaser provided some great scenes of Mike Colter taking on armed thugs (through a hallway, where else) in a bullet-riddled hoodie while holding a car door as a shield. He's protecting Harlem from Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes (House of Cards Emmy nominee Mahershala Ali). Colter reprises the role that was introduced in the previous Netflix series 'Jessica Jones' where he played the love interest of Krysten Ritter's titular character.
Netflix's Marvel deal includes the four series culminating in a team feature, Defenders. A short teaser with no footage but a haunting rendition of Nirvana’s "Come As You Are," with only the voiceover Scott Glenn's Stick was also teased. The other surprise was the first teaser for 2017's Iron Fist starring Finn Jones as the supernatural martial artist Danny Rand.
Check out all the videos below including an interview from Marvel LIVE! with the Luke Cage cast.
Luke Cage debuts on Netflix on September 30.
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Danny Rand fights relentlessly to regain everything he's lost in Marvel's Iron Fist, coming soon to Netflix.
Marvel's The Defenders will unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, as they face their biggest threat yet.
