52: Luke Cage

52: Luke Cage

Luke Cage Spoilers

Episodes 1 & 2:

Timeline: Takes place after Jessica Jones but not sure if before or after Daredevil season 2

Mention of the “Incident” (Avengers 2012)

Reference to Jessica Jones

Pop calls Luke “Power Man”

Turk is a recurring character in all Netflix Marvel properties (tells Cottonmouth where Chico is) Gunrunner in Daredevil

Music in Cottonmouth’s club is FANTASTIC

Episode 3:
Luke assaults Crispus Attucks, fighting choreography is kinda lame

  • Big action set piece but Luke isn’t ever in danger
  • Big sweeping motions where Luke hits multiple guys at once instead of just dominating person after person. Would have preferred to see a larger show of force

When in the hospital room with Chico, the show has a very soap opera feel

  • Not sure if I like the director

Woman detective and white detective argue about vigilantism, call back to Civil War

White detective is shown to be on Cottonmouth’s payroll

At the end of the episode, Cottonmouth shoots an RPG at Luke at Genghis Connie’s

  • Completely destroys all credibility of the show to this point
  • Too cartoony

Episode 4: Origin episodes

Prison cell fight (shades and someone else) was way better than Crispus Attucks fight

The end of episode 3 and the middle of 4 show that the only way to hurt Cage is to hurt his friends

Episode 5:

Cottonmouths’ club music changes to hip hop/ rap/ Drake

Confirmed to take place after Season 2 of Daredevil by Clair talking to her mom

Thor gets mentioned the most of all Avengers, would he be the most noticeable?
