Alfre Woodard is electrifying as Mariah Dillard in season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix and in the final trailer before the premiere of the new season, Mariah faces a new series of threats as she ascends to the Queen of Harlem.
“You don’t need to be bulletproof to be a superhero. Black women have always had superpowers; turning pain into progress. Harlem doesn’t need a hero, it needs a Queen.” – Mariah Dillard
The biggest obstacle standing in her way is the threat posed by John McIver aka Bushmaster who has a personal grudge against Mariah, access to her secrets and a plan to destroy everything she loves and take it for himself.
On the opposite is her fight against Harlem’s Hero Luke Cage who has to wrestle with saving Harlem from Mariah’s schemes at the same time fighting to save Mariah from Bushmaster.
The final preview of Marvel’s Luke Cage season two gives us a closer look at Mariah, impeccably played by Alfre Woodard portraying one of the most complex, badass roles on television going up against Luke’s bulletproof foil, Bushmaster, played by new cast member Mustafa Shakir. With Bushmaster and Mariah going head-to-head over the fate of Harlem, Luke will have to decide if the enemy of his enemy, is actually the ally he needs.
Marvel’s Luke Cage returns to Netflix June 22nd.
