Speaking to SciFiNow in a new interview, showrunner on the show Cheo Hodari Coker said of the series: "Luke Cage is a hip-hop western because it's about a man with a mysterious past who would rather stay hidden; a man who moves to a new section of town, which has deteriorated over time. Instead of a saloon, we have a club named Harlem's Paradise. And inside this 'saloon' there is another strong man who is controlling vice and - to some extent - has an amount of control in law enforcement, so he gets away with everything."

The person described as having some 'amount of control in law enforcement' would be crime lord Cornell 'Cottonmouth' Stokes, who'll be seeing a lot of when Luke Cage debuts.

With Luke Cage bringing the first Black-led superhero show in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the small screen, there are a lot of big expectations from the company to really deliver something special. We'll find out if they come through on what's expected in just a couple of weeks.

All episodes of Marvel's Luke Cage season 1 debut on Netflix on September 30. Seasons 1-2 of Daredevil and season 1 of Jessica Jones are available now.
