As part of their already super Saturday at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel has revealed that the stars of its next Netflix superhero series will be making an appearance.
The cast of Luke Cage, including titular star Mike Colter, Alfre Woodward, and Sons Of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi will be visiting the San Diego Convention Centre alongside series developer Cheo Hodari Coker.
It has been revealed via Deadline that Coker will be bringing a sneak peak of the upcoming series for the SDCC crowd, which is good news for them as Marvel sat out at last year’s event. With both Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and the highly anticipated Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, appearing too, it looks like Hall H will be a buzz of squealing Marvel fans this year.
So far we have seen next to nothing of the new show. All we have to go off is the small teaser trailer hidden after the credits of the Daredevil finale, and of course Cage’s appearances alongside Jessica Jones. So I’m guessing that the reveal will either be an uncut action scene from the series showcasing Cage’s immense strength and power, or an extended trailer of some sort. Hopefully Marvel show something that’s equally as awesome as that staircase fight from Daredevil Season 2.
Also we are yet to see a definite Luke Cage costume. So perhaps a new get up for the hero will be revealed at the convention. The only other thing I can think of is the possible inclusion of Iron Fist in a trailer or scene, which would mean we will be moving closer to the apparent Defenders team up.
Comic-Con runs across July 21-24. Let us know what you hope to see from Luke Cage down in the comments.
