Netflix has just released the second trailer for the upcoming Marvel’s Luke Cage and it’s fantastic.

Here we get some sneak peeks at the background and motivations of Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (played by Mahershala Ali) and Mariah Dillard (played by the always amazing Alfre Woodard). The trailer also highlights the tension between Luke Cage’s indestructibility and his reluctance to become a hero.

Netflix has also released the second in a series of featurettes called “Street Level Hero,” which highlight the real-life issues that inform the superhero world of Marvel’s Luke Cage. This one talks about life in Harlem.
