The First Trailer For ‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Is Out, And The Unbreakable Man Is Back Real Soon
"You definitely can't break me."
Strap in, Marvel fans, because the first trailer for Luke Cage season 2 is here, and we’re gonna be seeing a whole lot more of the world’s least breakable man real soon.
The 26-second teaser trailer doesn’t give much away: we know this season takes place after The Defenders, last year’s crossover show that saw Luke Cage join forces with Daredevil, Jessica Jones and (ugh) Iron Fist. We also know Luke’s heading back to Harlem, for what would be some downtime were he not now a local celebrity and also mysteriously plagued with enemies.
As the trailer description puts it, “being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.”
The trailer also features the most succinct possible explanation of Luke Cage’s powers, in case you slept through all of season one and The Defenders, or just need a reminder: “you can’t burn me, you can’t blast me, and you definitely can’t break me” is how Luke phrases it, while a montage of people trying and failing to do exactly these things plays.
Season two hits Netflix on June 22. And if you desperately can’t wait, season two of fellow excellent superhero show Jessica Jones drops literally tomorrow.
