We’re almost there! Marvel’s Luke Cage will be out in a little less than week. Until then, we have a brand new featurette asking and answering – Who Is Luke Cage?

Hearing it from people like Exec. Producer / Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker, Mike Colter, Simone Missick and Rosairo Dawson helps convey exact what you can expect from the series.
