Marvel’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ Reveals ‘Luke Cage’ in Set Photos
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!
As with the earlier shots of Tennant, Colter was photographed on set shooting scenes for AKA Jessica Jones opposite Krysten Ritter’s titular heroine, the pair riding on Luke Cage’s motorcycle. Colter will appear as the famous Marvel strongman in 6-7 episodes, before leading his own show into The Defenders teamup miniseries.
It isn’t clear exactly what relationship Luke Cage and Jessica Jones will have on Netflix’s series, in light of their well-known pairing in Marvel comics, nor is it certain if Cage will have his famous super-strength and invulnerable skin already in place by his first appearance. So reads Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones official synopsis:
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
In addition to Krysten Ritter in the title role, Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones also features among its cast Doctor Who favorite David Tennant as the villainous Zebediah Kilgrave, Carrie-Anne Moss as “Harper” and Transformers star Rachael Taylor as Patsy “Hellcat” Walker. Run creatively by Melissa Rosenberg, the series also features in recurring roles Eka Darville as Jessica’s neighbor, Erin Moriarty as a client, and Wil Traval as a police officer.
You can take a look at Mike Colter as Marvel’s Luke Cage in the photo above, but will AKA Jessica Jones feature our first super teamup of Netflix’s Defenders upon its late 2015 premiere?
