The moment Jessica Jones announced that Carrie-Anne Moss would play a gender-flipped version of Iron Fist character Jeryn Hogarth, it seemed inevitable the former Matrix star would cross paths with Finn Jones’ Danny Rand. And so it is, that Marvel confirms Moss will appear in the first season of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist!
Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones
Marvel’s Netflix schedule hasn’t gotten any less confusing with the addition of a Punisher spinoff alongside Defenders team-up filming, but Jessica Jones fans might finally have something to look forward to. Krysten Ritter says Season 2 will start production immediately after The Defenders, for which she’s already begun training.
Attention now turning from Civil War to Avengers: Infinity War (or whatever they end up calling it), time and time again Marvel brass have tempered expectations as to whether the climactic MCU event will finally bridge the gulf between movie and TV. Not likely, it seems, as writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely reveal the “nearly impossible” challenge in logistics.
No matter how great the divide between Marvel’s TV and movie universe, fans have always quietly banked on Avengers: Infinity War uniting all its live-action heroes in one universe-shattering showdown. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo don’t want to get your hopes up, however, noting “our focus is on telling the stories of the characters that currently exist on the movie side.”
Marvel’s Netflix Defenders tapping Daredevil bosses Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez to showrun seemingly confirmed that the teamup miniseries would directly follow Iron Fist over any additional series, Jessica Jones Season 2 included. Thankfully, we may see plenty of Jessica Jones’ support cast in The Defenders, as Eka Darville claims Malcolm will appear in the event series.
It was Daredevil star Charlie Cox who first let slip that Marvel Netflix teamup The Defenders would start shooting before 2016's end, throwing into question Daredevil Season 3, and now we can consider it official. Not only will Daredevil showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie helm The Defenders, but Drew Goddard will take an active position as executive producer.
Neither Marvel nor Netflix have made particularly clear how the future Defenders series will be scheduled, following Luke Cage’s September premiere, current Iron Fist production, or the others awaiting new seasons, but has Daredevil come to the rescue? Charlie Cox says The Defenders will shoot later this year, potentially setting us up for a 2017 premiere.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
Jessica Jones has been understandably quiet since Marvel confirmed news of a second Netflix season, with production unlikely to begin before team-up mini-series The Defenders. Marvel too hasn’t exactly proven forthcoming, but a new executive producer joining Jessica Jones’ ranks for Season 2 could well get the ball rolling.
Likely as it seems that Marvel will prove as quick to renew Daredevil for Season 3 as last year, we don’t yet know when The Defenders will pull the cast toward a team-up miniseries. Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez aren’t talking either, though they at least know where the various Daredevil Season 2 threads might pick up, and how Jessica Jones might be involved.
