New Luke Cage Clip Features Gangster Villain Cottonmouth

"Everybody wants to be the king."


After the success of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, the next Marvel show to hit Netflix is Luke Cage. The reluctant, bulletproof hero arrives on the streaming service at the end of this month, and a new clip has been released. It features the villainous gang boss Cottonmouth, played by House of Cards' Mahershala Ali. Check it out below:

The show stars Mike Colter as the title character, who first appeared in a supporting role in Jessica Jones. Luke Cage also features Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, and Frank Whaley. A trailer was released last month, and well as the first full clip.

The events of Luke Cage will eventually tie into The Defenders, the superhero team-up show that will also feature Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. It is expected in late 2017. An Iron Fist series is expected before this, and a first teaser was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

In addition, it has been confirmed that Daredevil will return for a third season. Although the show has proved extremely popular, Netflix's increasingly busy Marvel schedule hadn't included a third outing for the blind superhero until recently.

Luke Cage hits Netflix in its entirety on September 30, 2016.
