How long can the queen keep reigning in Harlem?
Marvel released the final trailer season 2 of Luke Cage. This time the focus is on Mariah Dillard, who is arguably my favorite villain of all time in the Marvel/Netflix universe.
Throughout the course of the trailer, we learn several things. We are introduced to Gabrielle Dennis’s character, who appears to be the daughter of the notorious Black Mariah.
