Writer and showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has said of the series, “It’s very sophisticated. I mean, it’s got a ’90s hip-hop vibe… we’ve got the Marvel action. We’ve got drama. I would like this to be, I mean, I know this is heavy but, The Wire of Marvel television, because we really deal with a lot of different issues.” Check out the new teaser poster for the series below.
