Alfre Woodard, Annabella Sciorra vie for control of Harlem in ‘Luke Cage’ season 2 trailer

'Luke Cage' Season 2 Trailer Features Mariah Dillard, Bushmaster

The latter takes the form of John McIver (AKA the Bushmaster), a musclebound foe capable of bringing even Mike Colter's Power Man to his knees - think Diamondback, only with a cold and calculating heart.

A new trailer for Luke Cage season 2 sees Alfre Woodard's nefarious politician-slash-club owner Mariah stake her claim on the NY neighborhood's proverbial throne and face a fierce opponent along the way: the bulletproof baddie known as Bushmaster, played by Mustafa Shakir.

Season 2 finds Mariah faced with an imminent and formidable threat to her hold over Harlem - the unstoppable Bushmaster, who endangers everything she holds most dear. In keeping with the show's embrace of classic hip-hop, the clip features the Fugees track "Ready or Not" and offers up the notion that "black women have always had superpowers". After all, he's Harlem's hero, and Harlem's hero works against criminals, not with them.
