First Three Marvel’s Luke Cage Episode Titles Revealed

Last week at the Marvel’s Luke Cage panel at San Diego Comic-Con, series showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (Notorious, “NCIS: Los Angeles”) revealed that each episode title would use the name of a song by the East coast hip hop group Gang Starr. Now, Coker has taken to Twitter to reveal the titles of the first three episodes. He says the first episode is titled “Moment of Truth,” the second “Code of The Streets,” and the third “Who’s Gonna Take The Weight?” Coke also promised three more titles would be revealed every Friday leading up to the show’s September 30 premiere.

After 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.

Mike Colter leads a cast that also includes Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Frank Whaley as Rafael Scarfe, Mahershala Ali as Cottonmouth, Theo Rossi as Shades, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, and the return of Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple.

Created by Archie Goodwin and John Romita, Sr., Luke Cage is one of the most popular street level heroes in the Marvel Universe who possesses superhuman strength and impenetrable skin. He’s also a friend and frequent business partner with Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, who will also be getting his own series on Netflix starring Finn Jones as the title hero.
