SAN DIEGO, July 20 (UPI) -- Marvel comics hero Luke Cage is back bartending in a new official image released by Netflix for their upcoming drama, Luke Cage.

The image released Tuesday hypes the show's incoming panel at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con where Luke Cage is expected to make a big splash.

"How I'm feeling when someone says they're hitting up the #LukeCage panel at #SDCC2016," Netflix captioned the photo on Twitter. Cage played by Mike Colter who first appeared as the character in Jessica Jones, is seen bartending at a high-end location wearing a suit. As always, Cage a ladies man, is seen catching the eye of female customer.

During Jessica Jones, Cage's bar was destroyed and he headed off to Harlem leaving Hell's Kitchen behind. The new promotional shot seems to indicate that Cage will find a new place to bartend.

On Monday, Netflix also released a comic book inspired poster for the series that featured a yellow drawing of the muscular vigilante. "#LukeCage is heading to the Con this Thursday. It's gonna be lit," the image was captioned on Twitter.

Also starring Theo Rossi, Mahershala Ali, Alfre Woodard, Erik LaRay Harvey, Frank Whaley, Simone Missick and Rosario Dawson who is reprising her Daredevil role as nurse Claire Temple, Luke Cage is set to premiere on Netflix starting Sept. 30.

Colter is expected to star as the character in Netflix's planned Defenders series which will bring together its various Marvel heroes including Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.
