Set Photos from Marvel's Luke Cage Reveal a Major Villain
The latest entry into Marvel's Netflix universe is filming in New York City right now, and while we've already met titular hero Luke Cage, we're yet to see the people the soon-to-be Defender will be grappling with in his new solo show? 

Spoilers for Marvel's Luke Cage follow


New photos from the Luke Cage set have emerged online, and they give us our first look at one of the weirder looking villains that are set to feature on the show. Those who have been following Luke Cage since his introduction will know the name Willis Stryker very well. The villain also known as Diamondback has had a number of throw-downs with Cage over the years, and it looks like the two are going to be squaring off one more time this year.


Stryker will be an interesting foe for Cage. In the comics, Cage and Stryker grew up together, joining a gang and committing crimes, most of which were petty. When they both fell for the same girl, Stryker framed Cage for a crime that saw him sent to prison. 


Judging from the photos above, Stryker's appearance is going to make a few adjustments to his classic comicbook look. We're not quite sure what's going on with the helmet, but his unzipped jacket does reveal his trademark yellow stripes...
