Luke Cage, the Marvel superhero from Harlem, is coming to Netflix. So are four documentaries that feature a variety of interesting and thought-provoking subjects.
Based on the trailer, it would appear that Netflix’s Luke Cage plays fairly close to Marvel’s original. For those unfamiliar with the original source material, the story centers upon a Luke Cage, a man who undergoes a cell regeneration experiment. The experiment and Cage fall victim to sabotage, which leaves Cage with super strength and virtually-unbreakable skin. Cage attempts to live a low-key life in Harlem, but becomes a superhero by using his gifts against a local crime boss and his minions.
The comic book Luke Cage, also known as Power Man, made his debut in June 1972. The Netflix version is sure to feature no small amount of updating, if we’re to believe what we see in the film’s trailer. Netflix’s version stars Mike Colter in the titular role.
