We are finally in the month in which Marvel’s newest Netflix series Luke Cage premieres, and anticipation just continues to grow with every new piece of promotional material. The first clip revealed from the upcoming series showcased the mere physical presence that Mike Colter exudes onscreen, and just from that snippet alone, one can tell that they have nailed the tone.
Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has been revealing the titles for all 13 episodes for the series. Each episode was named after a song from Gang Starr. The show’s hip hop influence was recently explored in a brand new featurette, which you can check out right here.
Coker took to his Twitter account to reveal the title for the 13th and final episode of the show’s first season:

And there you have it. All 13 episodes now have a respective title, and I must say that embracing hip hop and applying these songs’ themes to Luke Cage is an intelligent move. I really hope they release the series’ soundtrack after it premieres, because I am certain that the music will strike a chord with audiences.
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, begins the official blurb, “Luke Cage becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon 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.”
All episodes of Luke Cage will be available to stream on Netflix on September 3o.
