'Luke Cage' Emerges as the Hero Harlem Needs in Badass New Trailer

In this Marvel live action series, a street-fighting ex-con battles crime on the streets of New York as the Super Hero, Luke Cage.
Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is ready to take center stage on Netflix and the new trailer shows he's ready to clean up Harlem. 

Luke Cage is the next chapter of Marvel's Defenders series following 'Daredevil' and 'Jessica Jones.' Cage was introduced in 'Jones' but leaves Hell's Kitchen for Harlem and has his hands full with Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes (Mahershala Ali), Shades (Theo Rossi), and Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Rosario Dawson reprises her recurring role in the Marvel/Netflix universe as nurse Clair Temple and Simone Missick debuts as comic book favorite Misty Knight. 

'Cage' carries on the dark look and theme of other Marvel/Netflix shows but will sound distinctively different. Where 'Daredevil' and 'Jones' had minimal scoring, 'Cage' showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker promises Hip Hop will be incorporated into the show as he told Deadline.
I had all these sequences with Luke running with music, some stuff we could clear, some stuff that couldn’t make it. I always in my head had him listening to Boot Camp Clik, Biggie, Mobb Deep, Hieroglyphics, Pharoahe Monch, a lot of the real lyrical mid-to-late ’90s era hip hop, but at the same time also appreciates the west coast. [Dr. Dre’s] The Chronic is gonna be in there. Just kind of that era of Hip Hop, very specific as to why Luke Cage is wearing Carhartt, very specific as to why he’s wearing Timberlands.
There'll also be appearances by real-life artists such as Jadakiss, Faith Evans, and Raphael Saadiq performing at the show’s fictional club "Paradise." Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) and Adrian Younge will score the series and produce an accompanying vinyl soundtrack album. 


All 13 episodes of Luke Cage will be available for streaming beginning September 30  on Netflix.

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.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books.
