Watch This! The first trailer for ‘Luke Cage’ on Netflix

Mike Colter is 'Luke Cage' in the Netflix original series.

Luke Cage, the third original superhero series in the Netflix Defender Initiative, won’t be available until September 30 but you can get a taste of the urban comic book sensibility in the first full trailer for the series.

Mike Colter stars as Luke Cage, the bulletproof hero introduced in the Netflix series Jessica Jones, Simone Missick, Mahersala Ali, and Frankie Faison co-star, and Rosario Dawson is back as Claire Temple, the “night nurse” who runs through all of Netflix’s Marvel Comics.

Though it is still more than a month away, Netflix has their Luke Cage page up so you can add it to your list in advance. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer.
