Luke Cage doesn’t premiere on Netflix until the end of the month, but Marvel isn’t being shy with the new clips. The first few teases showed off Mike Colter as Power Man himself, with the unbreakable skinned superhero absorbing punishment, dishing out pain, and finding himself in need of some new clothes. The newest clip places the focus on one of the chief villains he’ll be battling during the show’s first season: Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, played by House of Cards and The Hunger Games series star Mahershala Ali.

Everyone involved in Avengers: Infinity War has pretty much dashed all hopes of seeing some of Marvel’s television heroes on the big screen in the upcoming epic crossover event film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Marvel television head Jeph Loeb have both cited off the list of reasons why it probably wouldn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean it won’t.
In a new interview, Infinity War filmmakers the Russo Brothers give fans some hope that Netflix’s The Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) could still appear. Could we see Marvel’s tv heroes in Infinity War? They also again confirm that Brie Larson will appear in the film as Captain Marvel. Find out what they had to say, after the jump.

It’s September, which means that our focus should be drifting away from comic book superheroes and toward the film festival circuit, where the movies we’ll be talking about for the next four or five months will be making their debuts and building their buzz. And while our own Angie Han is currently at the Toronto International Film Festival to bring you reviews of new films from the world’s most exciting and eclectic filmmakers, Netflix is doing an excellent job of diverting our attention from the arthouse to the streets of Harlem in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Yes, a new Luke Cage clip is here and yes, this show still looks really, really good.

Luke Cage won’t premiere on Netflix until later this month (Friday, September 30th, 2016) but the first reviews have begun to hit the web. Television press were given access to the first seven episodes (of the 13 episode first season) and the reactions to the first half of the season are overwhelmingly positive.
Some critics are calling this the best Marvel television series produced thus far by the company, while others who liked what they did with Jessica Jones and Daredevil more agree that the new series fit perfectly alongside these other dark Marvel tv adaptations. Also, a lot of love has been given to the music and tone of this new series, which seems to set it apart from everything else Marvel has produced thus far in both television and film.
Hit the jump to read some spoiler-free excerpts from the early Luke Cage reviews.
