We’re just days away from the premiere of Luke Cage, but Netflix and Marvel have given fans yet another look at what they can expect from the show that some critics are calling Marvel’s bet series yet. Netflix shared one more trailer this week, and it comes with even more Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), Misty Knight (Simone Missick), Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) and a Stan Lee cameo.

While the trailer itself features a lot of scenes already shown in the previous trailers, and make just how ruthless Cornell Stokes (Mahershala Ali) is very clear, it also highlights that Luke (Mike Colter) doesn’t really want to be a hero. He spent much of his debut on Jessica Jones trying to just live his life as a bartender. He got swept up in the title character’s story, and a move to Harlem was likely supposed to be his chance to lay low.

We can see in the trailer below though that it’s Claire and Misty who seem to convince him to make a difference. While Claire has been moe of a background character, tired of all the weird stuff going on, in Daredevil and Jessica Jones, here, she’s encouraging Luke to make a difference. A bullet proof man doesn’t have to be afraid of anything. When he doesn’t consider himself to be a hero, Misty assures him that he already is.



Did you catch Stan Lee? Lee has a cameo in every Marvel project as long as he is able to film one. The Netflix series have taken a new tactic, freeing him up from having to spend time filming for them. Both Daredevil and Jessica Jones have featured a picture of him hanging on the wall in the police station in uniform. This time, if you watch right around the two-minute-mark of the trailer, you’ll spot him in a poster encouraging people in the neighborhood that if they “see a crime, report it.”

The entire first season of Luke Cage will be available for streaming on netflix on Friday, September 30.
