Pass The Popcorn: Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Adrian Younge Are Scoring Marvel's 'Luke Cage'
With the exception of a lone, twenty second trailer, details and insights into Marvel‘s anxiously-anticipated Netflix-exclusive, Luke Cage, have been fairly slim. But the premiere of the comic giant’s sure-shot blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War, proved to be just the opportunity for LK’s executive producer and showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker, to shed some new light on what is already one of Marvel’s hottest properties.
According to Coker, the show will be a more mature production, centering in Harlem as opposed to Daredevil & Jessica Jones‘ Hell’s Kitchen, likening it to The Wire in terms of its edginess and grit and will apparently lean on hip-hop just a heavily as the superpowers. He went on to reveal that dynamic production duo, Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Adrian Younge, would be providing the show’s score. Which is to actually say that the show’s musical component is in the best hands possible, as both Ali and Adrian have long professed their adoration for the comic book world and will no doubt fit Luke Cage with the arrangements it deserves. You can get your first taste of Luke Cage in the criminally-short trailer below, just be sure to sit tight, as the show is slated to hit Netflix on September 30th.
