SDCC: Netflix debuts trailers for Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders


First looks galore

Netflix came out swinging at this year's Comic Con. Not only did they drop a trailer for the upcoming Luke Cage movie, but also teasers for Iron Fist and The Defenders. As you may or may not know the latter of those will see Netflix's entire stable of heroes team up to fight some big bad guy. Probably the person mocking them at the end of the teaser, which also confirms a 2017 release date for the series.

The Iron Fist teaser is short and sweet, showing off some super powers that seem a little more aggressive than the original Iron Fist ever had. Finn Jones still isn't Asian, but he does look very interesting. The trailer feels in line with Netflix's darker take on the Marvel universe and hints that there might be some mental health issues going on with our hero Danny Rand. No confirmation of release date on this one, but 2017.

The stand out has to be the Luke Cage trailer, which pumps out ODB‘s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” while Cage plows through a crime-filled building in a Raid-esque fight sequence. The show is supposed to have 90s hip-hop vibe and the writer has called it Marvel's version of The Wire. Whatever it turns out to be it already looks awesome.
