Luke Cage season 2 hints at Mariah’s reign

Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage is only 10 days away and their social media team are dropping more hints about what to expect this coming season.

In the trailer, Alfre Woodward returns as councilwoman Mariah Dillard to take care of Harlem, including getting rid of Luke Cage (Mike Colter). With Shades (Theo Rossi) as her sidekick, Mariah is prepared to do anything for Harlem. We also meet Mariah’s daughter, Tilda Johnson (Gabrielle Dennis), in the trailer. Unfortunately, Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir) has other plans for Mariah. Luckily for Mariah, Luke Cage is a hero who is willing to help her against this Bushmaster, who seems to exhibit superpowers of his own.

Like last season, we saw a lot of intentional symbolism such as the placement of the crown in each shot. Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (Mahershala Ali) was carefully placed with the crown on his head but ultimately lost that power. Could we expect the same from Mariah?

Season two of Marvel’s Luke Cage, which has 13 episodes, airs on Friday, June 22nd on Netflix.

Marvel’s Luke Cage Official Synopsis:

After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) 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.
