Luke Cage has his work cut for him in the season two trailer for the returning Netflix show.

The new villain is called "Bushmaster" and has the unsettling ability to absolutely smash up the previously notoriously-hard-to-hurt Cage, which implies that this dude has benefitted from the same super-science.

Luke Cage season 2 will premiere on Netflix on June 22nd. "Turned brutal. Soon broken?", the Netflix TV series will return to NY for another 13 episodes. And though Luke clearly tries to do so in the footage above, he's about to face a new threat in town who isn't scared of an invulnerable man: John McIver a.k.a. Bushmaster (The Deuce's Mustafa Shakir), who's able to withstand bullets himself.

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. Presumably, his powers come from the same experiments that gave Luke his. In the trailer, Claire Temple voices her concerns, but Luke shrugs them off, saying "sometimes brutality gets shit done".Returning to season two are Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, and Rosario Dawson among others. We also see that Cage will accompany the now bionic-armed Misty Knight as her sidekick.
