Just last year, Mike Colter made his Marvel debut as Luke Cage, alongside Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, in season 1 of the latter's Netflix series. Now, ready to step up on his own, the teaser trailer for Luke Cage has released.

This year's Comic-con is well underway now, over in San Diego, and a whole slew of new trailers and details for the forthcoming shows in Marvel and Netflix's shared universe were revealed at the annual convention, from our first look at Iron Fist, a teaser for The Defenders and, of course, the teaser trailer for Luke Cage was included. Check it out below:

I, personally, was a big fan of Colter's turn as Cage in Jessica Jones and I cannot wait to see the character finally - and, ironically - break out into his skin with his own series. The teaser doesn't give too much away in regards to plot details but it shows off Cage's strength and unbreakable skin. The reveal also teases the dark, gritty tone we've come to expect from these Netflix/Marvel shows but it also brings a bit of a new vibe too, with the the hip-hop and this sense of fun; however, the show still looks as though it fits comfortably alongside Jessica Jones and Daredevil, in this same world.

Alongside the trailer, 4 exclusive clips were shown to those in attendance in Hall H yesterday which revealed characters such as Mystic Knight and the season's main antagonists, Cottonmouth and Black Mariah. The general consensus is that this is going to be perhaps the most action driven Netflix series yet, from the ones we've seen thus far. It looks and feels similar to the other shows we've seen from Netflix though so it seems to be that it's in good hands here too, as they were. A teaser poster was also released for Luke Cage ahead of SDCC and it's pretty stylish, featuring the character's trademark yellow and black colour palette. It's embedded further below.

Starring Mike Colter, Mahershala AliAlfre Woodard, Frank Whaley, and Simone Missick, all 13 episodes in season 1 of Luke Cage will be available to stream on Netflix from September 30th, 2016.

Here's the synopsis:
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Finally, here's the teaser poster:
