'Luke Cage' On Netflix September 2016: New Footage, Villain Revealed, And What Critics Are Saying

Carter Lee

Netflix has had great success among fans with Daredevil and Jessica Jones and with Luke Cage hitting Netflix in September, expectations are set high for the new Marvel addition. Audiences got a taste of the Luke Cage character in Jessica Jones, and many feel that he stole the show. But if what the critics are saying is true, they haven't seen anything yet. Rotten Tomatoes has the synopsis for Netflix's Luke Cage.

"After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon 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."
"…The world is also ready for one of the most socially relevant and smartest shows on the small screen you will see this year. In fact, with star power deluxe from lead Mike Colter and House Of Cards alum Mahershala Ali as the villainous Cornell Cottonmouth Stokes, the 13-episode first season is one of the best shows on the air and on the horizon."

"One of the best things about Marvel's growing set of series on Netflix is how each has managed to create its own distinct feel while not straying too far from the overall tone. Daredevil is dark, literally, and contains some of the universe's most grisly violence, while Jessica Jones' narrative bleakness is tempered by a bright banter. Luke Cage is smooth and deliberate, with Cage himself (Mike Colter) fighting to move both himself and his neighborhood into the light…

Though he may struggle to define his heroism and what it means for himself and Harlem, there are no complications for viewers. He is the hero we've been waiting for."
