A similar approach was done by Coker in the first season, naming each episode after a Gang Starr song.
MISTY KNIGHT ON CENTER STAGE
The latest “Luke Cage” promo puts Misty Knight on the spotlight, giving us a glimpse of her new cybernetic arm. And with a caption that says “FYI. Misty’s no sidekick,” it suggests that Misty, a former NYPD police officer whose arm was amputated after a bomb attack (seen in the series finale of tie-up show “The Defenders”), is not someone anyone should be messing with.

In the Marvel series, Misty is played by 36-year-old Simone Missick, who also appears in “Iron Fist,” which is also set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
INSIGHT INTO SEASON 2
Based on the official synopsis of the new season, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage has become a celebrity in Harlem after clearing his name. The fame, however, has put more pressure on our bulletproof-skinned hero in protecting his community, especially now that he faces a new threat, a “formidable new foe.”
In the trailer, this “formidable foe” is revealed to be the similarly bulletproof villain Bushmaster.
In Screen Rant, Colter gave insight into the writing for the second season, which was different from the first.
“We know the show now,” Colter was quoted. “We know the world that we’re in and we know sort of what works and what doesn’t work and we’re just gonna double down on that stuff, so look forward to a very exciting and very relevant and pop culture-heavy show.”
Lucy Liu was previously announced as the director of the second season premiere.
