Just a couple of weeks ago, we got a small teaser trailer for season 1 of Marvel and Netflix's forthcoming series, Luke Cage, from San Diego Comic-Con (watch that here). Now, the first, full-length trailer (and poster) for the show has arrived and it's pretty damn cool.

Mike Colter's eponymous, bulletproof, tough as hell hero was first introduced in season 1 of last year's brilliant Jessica Jones but now he'll be stepping into the spotlight for his own series, as Marvel/Netflix's third defender. The first trailer has arrived. Check it out below:
I loved Colter's Cage in Jessica Jones and I'm very much excited to see Luke Cage too. This trailer is just so cool and I love seeing the dark, gritty tone and aesthetic that we've come to expect from these Netflix Marvel series', but Luke Cage also has a very different style and feel to it too. There's very much an 80s vibe going on here and I love the choice of music and how brillianlty it accompanies the footage and just represents the character of Luke Cage to those not familiar with him - he's a badass. The reveal still keeps the plot under wraps but it teases what we can expect from season 1 when it drops next month: plenty of action and plenty of Mike Colter just kicking ass.

Marvel and Netflix have really been bringing their A-game to thier collaborative universe; both Daredevil and Jessica Jones were great, and Luke Cage looks like it'll be continuing the great track record. The show looks and feels very different from what we've seen before - if Daredevil was an action and Jessica Jones was a mystery-thriller, this is an 80s throwback - but it still looks like it fits comfortably alongisde those shows and characters. Of course, Netflix are building towards The Defenders, which is set for a late 2017 release, but we still have Luke Cage and then Iron Fist before that arrives.

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 official 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.
And here's the poster:
