Luke Cage Season 3: Sweet Christmas

Luke Cage is back and boys and girls I have looked forward to his return. I have not been disappointed. Okay is it perfect, no but showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker  created more than just a super-hero show. Season 3 deals with family, revenge, justice, accepting who you are and relationships.

Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is back and coming to accept that his role as the protector the streets of Harlem. Those streets are about to get crowded as John ‘Bushmaster’ Mclver (Mustafa Shakir)comes to get revenge on Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Many years ago the Stokes, Mariah Dillard’s maiden name, took what belong to both the Stokes and Mclver, Bushmaster Rum. Bushmaster seeks revenge and plans to make Mariah Stokes pay for what her family has done.

That folks is the A story but season 2 of Luke Cage has so many other layers. Mercedes “Misty” Knight(Simone Missick) struggles with the loss of her arm and being back on the force. Rosario Dawson returns as Claire Temple and her relationship with Luke is tested.  Luke feels the weight of Harlem on his shoulders and that slowly begins to chip away his and Claire’s relationship. Theo Rossi once again plays Hernan “Shades” Alvarez a character that you hate but love to see on the screen.

Introduced in Season 2 are Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson daugther of Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). In what I consider one of the best scenes in the series is Mariah tells Tilda about her real father. Alfre Woodard gives a amazing performance here.  Tilda plays well off Alfre and you can feel both their pain. Also we are introduced to Mustafa Shakir as Bushmaster. I very capable match for Luke Cage and a very good job from Mustafa Shakir. Also the show has the final performance of Reg E. Cathey. If you don’t know the name you will know his face. Reg give a very heartfelt and touching  performance as Luke’s father.

Okay so the above was my attempted at being a reviewer. That was ewwww. Now this is really my review.

I love Season 2 of Luke Cage. I will be honest. I read some other reviews to try and make this article a well written review. But dam they are all over the place. Some critics loved it. Other thought it was poop. Well folks my advice is just watch it. Make up your own minds but damn give this a view. Don’t binge it, well I don’t recommend it. Take you time. Savior it, ingest it and drink it in slowly. There are performances that need to not be rushed through. Lines of dialogue that you will not remember because you need to see it all in one sitting. Mike Colter leads a great cast of actors.

Jessica Henwick(Collen Wing) shows up and her and Misty have some kicking ass fun in a bar. Cool as shit.

Buy far Luke Cage is my favorite superhero series on TV right now. Oh shit the music. Once again the music for the show is brilliant. I enjoyed all of it. Some of the rap lyrics was a little raw but hey I am a fat middle age white guy. But I did Shazam a few of those songs.

I could go on and on about different aspects of the series but shit that be a long ass read. So finally, yeah I know to long a article, but pull up a chair on Friday. You will enjoy Season 2 and if not, talk to the hand.

Black Panther Dom Trailer 2 1080p

Today Marvel released what I hope is the final trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie. The reason I hope it is the last is simply to much is to much. I love this trailer and it is the right amount to get me excited about this movie.

The music really gets you pumped. We see flying ships, amazing new costumes and T’Challa trying to figure how to become King and leader. T’Challa also has to deal with the return of a old enemy, played by Micheal B. Jordon.

This trailer alone gets me pumped for this movie and for more to come. I have a feeling that we maybe seeing the new leader of The Avengers.

First Official Look At Cable

Ryan Reynolds is a marketing tool on his own.  Reynolds has since the first Deadpool movie Ryan has constantly tweeted, Instagram images and updates. I truly believe that Ryan was able to get people out to see Deadpool because of the use of social media. Once again he has done it with Deadpool 2. Earlier he used social media to introduce us to  Zazie Beetz as Domino.

 

 

 

 

Now this weekend  Reynolds posted 2 pictures of Josh Brolin in full Cable gear. Brolin’s Cable has the cybernetic arm, and eye along with an adorable teddy bear attached to his belt. This version of Cable is trimmed down but looks dam good.

Brolin is looking dam good.

 

Black Lighting Coming To CW

The Black Lighting is coming the the CW this fall and there are no plans for Black Lighting to be part of the Arrowverse.  According to network president Mark Pedowitz that there will be another Arrow/Flash/Supergirl/Legends of Tomorrow but Black Lighting will be in another universe.

One of the reasons that Black Lighting will be set in a different universe is the location. Black Lighting will be filmed in Atlanta while the other shows are all in filmed in Vancouver. So doing a cross over can be a little difficult with all the travel.

My feeling is the show will take on the same theme as the other show have of protecting a city. After watching the trailer I did get a Luke Cage feel for it. Unlike the Luke Cage where Luke is interested in protect Harlem, Black Lighting will be protecting his city. Black Lighting maybe the CW’s attempt of getting some of the same audience as Luke Cage. My feeling is that the ability of Marvel to go a little darker on Netflix will give Luke Cage the edge.

The show does have something different from the other shows on the CW. This show leads are black and hopefully it tackles some more adult stories and not worry about the pretty young people. Tackling what it is to be a black vigilante that is a hero and the struggles it is to be one. Time will tell if the audience will jump on board and follow another superhero show on the CW.

DC Database:

Black Lightning is a super-hero with the ability to generate and control lightning. Originally he was a high school principal and Olympic-level athlete who became a vigilante to take down organized crime in MetropolisSuicide Slum. Eventually he would become a member of Batman‘s team of Outsiders for many years, although he retired briefly to become secretary of education under president Lex Luthor. He returned to crime-fighting, though, as a member of the Justice League. His two daughters operate as the super-heroes Thunder and Lightning. Black Lightning was created by Tony Isabella and Trevor von Eeden, first appearing in Black Lightning #1. (1977)
