LOOK: New "Luke Cage" Photos Reveal Classic Marvel Comics Villain

via Comic Book Resources

This fall, "Luke Cage" will lead a Netflix series following his appearance on "Jessica Jones," and that means he'll be getting a few villains of his own. New photos from the set of show reveal Erik LaRay Harvey in costume as Willis Stryker, a Marvel villain who goes by Diamondback in the comics.

The images surfaced on First Look as well as Twitter and show Harvey wearing a solid gray uniform and helmet. In some of the photos, his jacket is slightly unzipped, revealing a ribbed yellow shirt underneath.

In the comics, Diamondback is a member of the Serpent Society, a business enterprise of criminals and mercenaries -- and he isn't the only member of the group slated to appear in the show. Last September, "House of Card's" Mahershala Ali joined show as Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes, who is described as "a Harlem nightclub owner" who will "become an unexpected foe in Luke’s life when Stokes’ criminal activities threaten Luke’s world."

Executive produced by Cheo Hodari Coker and produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, "Luke Cage" stars Colter, Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali and Simone Missick. The series will premiere on September 30.
