Where to watch Luke Cage online in Australia

Matt Sayer 2 June 2017 NEWS


Unbreakable and unshakeable: Here's where Australians can watch the big man, Luke Cage.

The world doesn't smile on Carl Lucas. First, he's wrongfully convicted and sent to Seagate Prison. Then, he's beaten to within an inch of his life for exposing an illicit fight club the guards set up for their personal entertainment. Even worse, Lucas's injuries are so severe he has to be placed on life support, with his chances of survival slim to none. Reva Connors, Lucas's prison counsellor and closest friend, refuses to accept those odds, and she convinces Dr Noah Burstein to perform an experimental medical procedure on Lucas in a last-ditch attempt to save his life.

Unsurprisingly, the procedure doesn't go quite as planned. Instead of healing his wounds, the experiment leaves Lucas with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. Taking advantage of his newfound powers, Lucas punches a hole through the wall of Seagate Prison and heads out into the wide world of New York City for a fresh start. To mark the occasion, he abandons the name Carl Lucas and picks one that better reflects everything his freedom cost him.

Luke Cage is born.

Cage's new life begins promisingly enough. He marries Connors, settles down in New York City, and for a time, is happy. But when Connors is killed in a seemingly random bus crash, Cage is left with no choice but to use his powers to hunt down those responsible.

However, closure proves difficult to find. Even after bringing his wife's murderer to justice and packing his bags for another fresh start in Harlem, Cage is denied peace and quiet. Gang wars and corrupt politicians seem to follow him wherever he goes, and if he doesn't step up and become the defender his city needs, pretty soon there won't even be a city to defend.

Where can I watch Luke Cage?

As one of Netflix's original Marvel series, Luke Cage is currently exclusive to Netflix subscribers. Judging by Netflix's other Marvel series, though, the first season will likely come to iTunes and Google Play within the next 12 months.
