‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Spoilers, Latest News & Update: 3 Possible Villains To Appear On Marvel’s Widely Popular Hit On Netflix

Now that Marvel's "Luke Cage" has one season under its belt, the superhero series is gearing towards its critical second season. After enjoying a widely successful first season, Marvel's biggest hit on web television has become one of the most anticipated shows on Netflix.

However, a hero is only as good as the villain. The first season of "Luke Cage" saw the Power Man tangle with villains the likes of Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes (Mahershala Ali), Willie "Diamondback" Stryker (Erik LaRay Harvey), and Hernan "Shades" Alvarez (Theo Rossi). The troika of villains are not powerful enough to stop "Luke Cage."

Movie News Guide listed 3 villains who will possibly make an appearance and give Power Man a run for his money in "Luke Cage" season 2. The list includes Hernan "Shades" Alvarez, Mariah Dillard, a.k.a. "Black Mariah," and Willie Stryker reappearing as the "WarHawk."

Hernan "Shades" Alvarez has already been introduced in "Luke Cage" Season 1. It is interesting to note that in the comic books, "Shades" already has the sunglasses that can shoot lasers. Given that "Shades" already has access to high-tech weapons, it is logical to conclude that he will be one of the villains fans must watch out for on "Luke Cage" season 2. Especially after sitting on the sidelines while "Cottonmouth" and "Diamondback" fight for control over Harlem.

"Black Mariah" (Alfre Woodard) has also been introduced in "Luke Cage" Season 1. Already a fan favorite in the series, expect "Black Mariah" to take on "Cottonmouth's" place as the Alpha Crime Boss, well, Lady.

The last time "Diamondback" was seen on "Luke Cage" Season 1, Willie Stryker was visited by Dr. Burnstein. The prison doctor is the same doctor who gave "Luke Cage" his superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. In the comic books, only "WarHawk" has the same ability as "Luke Cage." And with Stryker meeting Dr. Burnstein, it's not a stretch to think that Stryker will be receiving the same ability as the Power Man.

"Luke Cage," portrayed by Mike Colter, is a former convict with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. Cage was convicted of a crime he did not commit and trying to prove his innocence is a major recurring part in the series.

No specific air date has been confirmed for Marvel's "Luke Cage" Season 2. However, Power Man is expected to return after Marvel's "The Defender."
