We’re still waiting for news on a potential second season of Jessica Jones, but that hasn’t stopped Luke Cage from living his life in Harlem with friends, new and old. The latest set photos of our third Netflix Defender see Rosario Dawson’s Claire back in action again, along with our first looks at Marvel’s Misty Knight, and even our new big bad.

All around the web, new set photos from Luke Cage have begun to surface, clearly hitting a more action-heavy portion of the season than previously. There’s Luke hooding up after a tense confrontation with Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard), palling around with new best bud Claire Temple, and what looks to be a dangerous turn for Frank Whaley’s Detective Rafael Scarfe and Simone Missick’s Misty Knight.



Elsewhere of Netflix’s Luke Cage, we know that Sons of Anarchy vet Theo Rossi will play “Shades” Alvarez, alongside Mahershala Ali’s Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes . Marvel menace “Diamondback” has been rumored to appear, while Cheo Hodari Coker will showrun the third Marvel Netflix drama.

Luke Cage hasn’t yet set a 2016 premiere date (late summer to fall seems like a reasonable bet), but what can we make of the latest photos?
