Netflix’s appearance at the TCA press tour didn’t yield an official premiere date for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, though showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was only too happy to share Netflix’s next Defender. Not only do we have a sense of how Jessica Jones’ powers will translate to the MCU, but also how the second series will distinguish itself from the darker Daredevil.
Development on the second season of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil has somewhat overshadowed Jessica Jones in recent months, but with the latter still angling for a 2015 release, Netflix has finally stepped up to confirm our second Defender. In lieu of an official date, Jessica Jones has been confirmed for a fourth-quarter 2015 premiere .
Like Daredevil before it, Marvel’s Jessica Jones has been mostly under wraps over the course of production, leaving fans eager for a taste of Netflix’s next Defenders series. And while Marvel itself isn’t budging on a release date, original Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis is almost bursting with praise of the new series, including our new Luke Cage.
The show may be titled Jessica Jones, but the second of Netflix’s series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will also introduce another important comic book character in Luke Cage. If you know nothing about Luke Cage and want to enjoy the series completely fresh, do yourself a favor and close this window. If you already know what Mr. Cage is all about, scroll on down for our first look at the character in action!
Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones series added a bit of distinction in titling itself AKA Jessica Jones alongside the addition of Krysten Ritter, but unlike Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel has decided to let simplicity prevail. Periods be damned, the second Defenders series will henceforth be known as Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
Earlier today we caught our first look at David Tennant’s “Purple Man” from the set of Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones, the latest Netflix Defenders entry to follow Daredevil, but the New York production has a much more Power-ful Man to show off. Meet Marvel’s Luke Cage in new set photos of Mike Colter playing our first hero for hire!
Now that Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil has come and gone, kicking off the first of our Defenders toward an inevitable teamup, focus shifts to the second installment in AKA Jessica Jones. We’ve seen Krysten Ritter milling about on set as the titular super-heroine, but take a look at Doctor Who favorite David Tennant in the villainous role of Marvel’s “Purple Man”!
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!
Marvel’s upcoming ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ has opened up casting floodgates in advance of its ‘Daredevil’ predecessor even premiering a trailer for its April 10 Netflix debut, and now another name has joined the ranks. ‘Transformers’ and ‘Crisis’ star Rachael Taylor has been cast in the ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ role of Patsy “Trish” Walker, alternately known as Marvel superhero Hellcat.
Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ has yet to release a frame of footage from its forthcoming Netflix TV series, but that hasn’t stopped followup series ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ from pushing forward. Not only do we know ‘Who’ the major villain of the Krysten Ritter super-detective drama will be, but David Tennant himself will portray the mysterious purple baddie.
