This is America – An Interview with Marvel’s Luke Cage’s Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker

The second season of Marvel’s Luke Cage provided for a multitude of shocking moments, twist endings and a juicy Jamaican villain.

After last year brought Netflix’s Marvel heroes together for The Defenders, our bullet-proof hero of Harlem is back for a second season of Luke Cage.  While Cage attempted to protect his neighborhood and deal with his newfound celebrity, he faced new foes which saw Luke becoming the new King of Harlem, possibly placing our hero deeper into a world of corruption and crime.

The Koalition spoke with Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker about everything that occurred this season, why no character is safe (Luke Cage is quickly becoming the black Game of Thrones), the backlash behind Cottonmouth and what it means to be “unapologetically” black.
