Last week, Marvel and Netflix unveiled the new trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones, which already has fans buzzing in anticipation for the November 20 debut of Season 1. We know that Jessica Jones will feature Mike Colter as Luke Cage, before his own series debuts on the streaming service sometime next year. Today, we have word that Daredevil himself will also be stopping by Jessica Jones' private office. Here's what Collider Heroes host Jon Schnepp had to say about the Man Without Fear making an appearance on Marvel's Jessica Jones.
"You're definitely gonna see Matt Murdock in Jessica Jones. That's a fact. He's in it. I don't know how they interact, but he's in the series."
The news shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, since we reported in May that Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple, a.k.a. Night Nurse, has signed a deal to, not only return for Daredevil Season 2, but also appear in Marvel's Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. All four of the Netflix shows, Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist will converge in the miniseries The Defenders. While it isn't known if Claire Temple will show up in Marvel's Iron Fist, some have speculated that she could be the one character that ties into all four shows.
All four of these shows are shot in New York City, and are all set within the Hell's Kitchen area, so they're obviously bound to run into one another at some point, especially given their proclivities to stopping crime. It isn't known if Daredevil will be lending a hand to Jessica Jones' investigations, or perhaps he will be watching her from afar, perched atop one of Hell's Kitchen's rooftops as she takes on these cases. We'll find out for sure when the 13-episode first season of Jessica Jones debuts in its entirety on November 20.
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 in New York City. Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) is joined by an amazing cast including David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty and Wil Traval. Marvel's Jessica Jones on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter) and Liz Friedman (Elementary), along with Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), who also serves as Marvel's Head of Television.
While Marvel hasn't announced exact premiere dates yet, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist are expected to debut in 2016, along with the second season of Daredevil. The miniseries The Defenders slated to arrive in 2017. Are you excited that Daredevil will be joining Jessica Jones? Do you have any theories as to how he'll be implemented into the show?
