After getting a glimpse of SFX Magazine's intimidating "Luke Cage" cover, pictures from the magazine's feature story about Marvel's upcoming Netflix series have been released. Comic Book Movie posted a couple more glimpses of the article that reveal a bit about star Mike Colter's approach to the show via scanned sidebar text.
"I'm catching up," Colter says of his reading of the source material. "I really enjoyed the 'Alias' comics because the Luke Cage character is more up to date...The things that a superhero like me would deal with back then are not the same things that I would deal with now."
Check out the scans below for a closer look.
The official synopsis of the show explains that, "[a]fter a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, 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."
Also starring Rosario Dawson, Mahershala Ali and Theo Rossi, "Luke Cage" premieres on Netflix on September 30.
