'Luke Cage' Season 2 Air Date, Spoilers, News & Update: New Villain More Evil Than Mahershala Ali's Cottonmouth? Diamondback Returns?
The first season of "Luke Cage" had a truly dangerous villain in Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes, who was played to perfection by "House of Cards" star Mahershala Ali. Since it is highly unlikely that Cottonmouth will return to the Netflix series, will a new baddie be introduced in "Luke Cage" Season 2? Or will Willis "Diamondback" Stryker go after Power Man once again?

Still, there is hope that "Luke Cage" Season 2 will bring in another deadly villain to take on Mike Colter's Power Man.
There are speculations that a new character will be introduced as the major villain in "Luke Cage" Season 2. However, most fans believe that the second season will be all about Diamondback's return and his deadly revenge on Power Man.
