FINALLY!

We finally have some official images from Netflix’s next big Marvel series, Jessica Jones. Though there is nothing overtly exciting about them and despite how unrevealing they really actually are, they still give us a little insight into what to expect.

Let’s start with the titular hero of our tale, Jessica Jones, played by actress Krysten Ritter. All of her pictures, at least the ones of just her, seem to show her hiding or watching out, looking all around her, like the boogieman could pop out at any moment.

This goes hand in hand with the Jessica Jones we know from the comics, at least from Bendis’s run on Alias, when all she seemed to want was to disappear.
And, if you’ve read the comics, than you know that this is due to the PTSD she experienced thanks to The Purple Man, Zebediah Killgrave.

Kilgrave, as he’s called in the Netflix series, is played by David Tennant and is decidedly NOT purple. He does, however, look just as intense and menacing as he should.

As for Luke Cage, played by Mike Colter, it appears that he works at a bar. We know from past interviews that we are finding Luke Cage after his origin story, somewhere in the middle of his career as a Hero for Hire. His Netflix series, which just started filming, will give his full origin.

Then we have Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper, who isn’t a character from the comics, but is a confidant and resource for Jessica Jones.

Finally, Rachael Tayler as Patsy Walker, a supermodel turned superhero named Hellcat. It remains to be seen if she’ll eventually take on this alter-ego, but she does fit the bill for taking the place of Captain Marvel, who was Jessica’s best friend in the comics. It would also make sense to see her, eventually, suit up to fight along with The Defenders.

MARVEL'S JESSICA JONES

Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need… especially if they’re willing to cut her a check.
