On Thursday, Marvel TV took over Comic-Con’s second biggest venue, Ballroom 20, to present their next new Netflix series, Luke Cage starring Mike Colter.

Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb was on hand to moderate the panel, with showrunner Cheo Coker and actors Mike Colter, Mahershala AliAlfre WoodardFrank WhaleyTheo Rossi, and Simone Missick all onstage to tell you why Luke Cage could be your next new favorite show. Below, read a rundown of everything we learned at the Luke Cage Comic-Con panel, including who all the new villains and allies are, and what makes Luke Cage unique in the Marvel universe.

Luke Cage footage recap

Marvel fans have already seen Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage in action, thanks to his recurring role on Jessica Jones. And at Comic-Con this year, we finally got to see Luke Cage, the series, in action. In addition to the first Luke Cage teaser trailer, Marvel TV and Netflix also brought along four sizable Luke Cage clips. Collectively, they suggested a show that could sit comfortably beside Jessica Jones and Daredevil in this gritty little corner of the Marvel universe, but also had a voice and personality all its own.

While we don’t have the video embeds to share with you just yet, we’ve got a play-by-play Luke Cage footage recap for you after the jump, along with our commentary.

the defenders teaser

Who said you need something as silly as footage featuring actors and such to put together a trailer? The first teaser trailer for The Defenders was revealed at Marvel and Netflix‘s Comic-Con panel earlier today, giving all of the superhero junkies in the crowd their first taste of the miniseries that will see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage team up. But it’s just a tiny taste: the show won’t even arrive for another year at the earliest and we know this because it was also announced that the series will premiere sometime in 2017.

Mike Colter made his Marvel universe debut as the unbreakable Luke Cage last year in Jessica Jones, but this fall he’ll get to grab the spotlight all for himself. Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel TV and Netflix unveiled the very first Luke Cage teaser trailer. The series also stars Mahershala Ali as Cornell Stokes, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades, Frank Whaley as Scarfe, and Simone Missick as Misty Knight. Watch the first Luke Cage teaser below.  Read More »

luke cage poster

There was a lot to love in the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones series, but one of things I loved most was Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage. We knew from the start that this soulful, sensitive, and dashing bartender (who also, you know, just so happens to have unbreakable skin) was going to be the star of his own series and would eventually unite with the rest of the Marvel Netflix stable of characters for a Defenders series, but Colter made a solo series for Luke feel like a priority in the midst of another character’s show. That’s something special.

With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, all things superhero are about to invade headlines with the force of a well-timed punch from Mr. Cage himself. So why don’t we kick off this week with a new Luke Cage poster that will be available to Comic-Con attendees later this week?
