The San Diego Comic Con is in full swing and there’s already lots to love! The Marvel film panel at comic con has been one of the most successful, and probably one of the most hyped of the con. But not only are superheroes invading fictional cities and showing up on the big screen, they’ve also settled in nicely on our TV screens.

Marvel TV has taken up a nice corner of Netflix and doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon. After “Daredevil” premiered, there have been a slew of shows after it like “Jessica Jones” and now, Netflix will also be adding spinoff series “Luke Cage,” which will star Mike Colter in the title role. His character first appeared in “Jessica Jones” and the two will reunite in Marvel’s “The Defenders,” which not only unites the once-lovers, but will also include Daredevil and Iron Fist.

At the panel, Marvel and Netflix also confirmed that “Daredevil” has been renewed for a third season.

You can check out the teaser trailers for “Luke Cage,” “The Defenders” and “Iron Fist” below, along with their respective synopses. “Luke Cage” especially looks fantastic and will hit Netflix September 30!

Synopsis: After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

Synopsis: Marvel’s The Defenders will unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, as they face their biggest threat yet.

Synopsis: Danny Rand fights relentlessly to regain everything he’s lost in Marvel’s Iron Fist, coming soon to Netflix.
