It’s Sweet Christmas Eve—i.e., the day before we get to relentlessly binge on Luke Cage—and in a now traditional move, Netflix has released the opening title sequence for the show to get everyone excited. And it’s damn good stuff.


Luke Cage joins Jessica Jones and Daredevil in having some truly great opening titles. In an era where that’s far more rare than it should be, it’s a welcome sight thing indeed. Etching scenes of Harlem across Luke’s unbreakable body is a great idea, and the music is funky as hell.


Only one more night to wait before we get to see what comes after the opening titles ourselves!
