The second season of "Luke Cage" will be hitting Netflix on June 22. This season will focus on the female leads, and folks are saying the trailer looks epic. The two-minute trailer teases scenes starring Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard—the Queen of Harlem. And with the Fugees' "Ready or Not" playing in the background, the trailer is even more epic. But not everyone is sold. Critics argue "Luke Cage" is lacking, and Marvel has yet to make a great enough series. Will season two live up to the hype?

Newsweek's Autumn Noel Kelly calls the trailer "electrifying," and compares it to a movie trailer:

The footage begins with Lauryn Hill's voice in “Ready or Not” by The Fugees. Believe it or not, it gets better from there. “Black women have always had superpowers. Turn pain into progress. Harlem doesn’t need a hero. It needs a Queen,” Mariah says.The rest feels like a movie trailer, and Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir) burns down what looks to be Mariah’s home. Cage walks out with Mariah limp in his arms. “Harlem can only handle one devil at a time,” he says. We see bullets hitting Bushmaster, but they pop back out, similar to Cage. It seems Bushmaster is using some sort of herb to power up.

RogerEbert.com's Brian Tallerico writes that the show could be better: 

"However, the cast is strong—including one likely future star—and the production values are high. It’s an entertaining drama that sometimes feels like a missed opportunity to be something greater."
