Marvel’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones’: First Photos Look Suspiciously Like Krysten Ritter
Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ at last hit the streets with its first official footage this past week, but Krysten Ritter’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ is hot on Matt Murdock’s trail, beginning production in The Bronx. See what Krysten Ritter looks like as a character who looks like Krysten Ritter, in the first Krysten Ritter photos of Krysten Ritter looking like Krysten Ritter!
Emerging over the wire are photos of Ritter on the set of Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series ‘AKA Jessica Jones,’ though as you might have guessed, there isn’t much of anything to see beyond Krysten Ritter dressed like a human woman, walking the streets of New York City. Might Luke Cage or a purple-painted David Tennant be hiding somewhere around the corner? Maybe! Will we ever see Krysten Ritter on set rocking a white jumpsuit and purple hair? Great question, Other Barry!
For those unfamiliar with the new series, ‘Jessica Jones’ emerged in ‘Alias’ comics as a superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, leading her to hang up the costume and opening a detective agency, wherein she helps both super and human clients. Marvel’s 13-episode ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ will hit Netflix at an undisclosed point in 2015, following the April 10 release of ‘Daredevil.’
In addition to a Krysten Ritter-looking Krysten Ritter in the title role, Marvel’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ also features among its cast Mike Colter as Luke Cage (subsequently to headline his own series), ‘Doctor Who’ favorite David Tennant as Zebediah Kilgrave, better known as Marvel’s “Purple Man,” Carrie-Anne Moss as “Harper” and ‘Transformers’ star Rachael Taylor as Patsy “Hellcat” Walker. Creatively, ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ has on its side Melissa Rosenberg as writer and showrunner.
Hopefully our first real photos of the series will emerge in less time than it took for ‘Daredevil’ to show his face, but what say you? Does Krysten Ritter look sufficiently like Krysten Ritter in our first set photos of ‘AKA Jessica Jones?’
