With little over a month to go until the show’s long-anticipated premiere, Luke Cage has muscled its way onto the cover of SFX Magazine – bursting clean through a plastered wall without so much of a scratch.
Taking point as Marvel’s Power Man is Mike Colter, who will already be familiar to those who binge-watched the inaugural season of Jessica Jones late last year. It was there that Netflix subscribers became accustomed to Luke Cage as a reluctant hero, but come September 30, we’ll see Colter’s Hero for Hire in his native neighborhood of Harlem.
