In the Luke Cage," our titular hero (played by Mike Colter) defiantly dared bad guys to test him. Now, the first full trailer for the upcoming episodes reveals that there is indeed someone who can go toe-to-bulletproof-toe with Cage.
The clip features the Marvel hero getting taken down a peg when he's blindsided by Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir), the new criminal mastermind who's got his eye on taking over Cage's Harlem 'hood. The beatdown is captured on video, leaving Cage not only shaken, but embarrassed, and determined to get his revenge by any means necessary.

But just how far will he go? As Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) cautions Cage, he's never been brutal before. Is this a turning point for the hero?
Lest you worry that this season will be entirely mired in darkness, though, the trailer also features the reappearance of Misty Knight (Simone Missick), last seen in rough shape in "The Defenders." Back with a shiny new bionic arm, Misty chides Cage about who exactly is playing sidekick to whom. We're already eager to see more from this playful pairing.
Season two of "Luke Cage" hits Netflix on June 22.
