Luke Cage Makes a Name For Himself in New Netflix Clip
If there’s one thing Luke Cage is understandably sick of, it’s having to buy new clothes. While he might literally be an unbreakable man, he hasn’t managed to pass on that ability to his wardrobe as well.
In this new clip released by Netflix today (which we’d seen some prior teases of in that first trailer tagging on at the end of Daredevil season two), Cage faces off against an entire group of baddies–with guns–in a boxing gym:
Since Cage is technically bulletproof, it makes sense that attempting to shoot him would result in the bullets richocheting off his body and taking out someone else (way to go, evil goons). I’m also here for the excellent fight choreography that differs so nicely from the other two Netflix Marvel shows. This looks to be a slightly different boxing gym in Harlem than the one we’re very familiar with from Daredevil, where Matt Murdock’s late father used to train–which begs the question: just how many boxing gyms are there in New York that are owned or were formerly owned by not-so-good guys?
We’re nearing ever closer to the release date for Luke Cage; it’ll premiere on September 30 on Netflix. Raise your hand if you’re planning on on calling out from work that day.
