In just 15 short days, Netflix will unveil Marvel's Jessica Jones, the second of four TV shows set in the Hell's Kitchen area of New York City. To help pass the time, Netflix has released 30 photos from this highly-anticipated series, which give us a fresh look at the title character (Krysten Ritter) along with Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), Jeryn Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), Malcolm (Eka Darville), Kilgrave (David Tennant), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Will Simpson (Wil Traval). Unfortunately these photos don't reveal too much regarding the plot. Hopefully we'll learn more as the countdown continues.
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. These photos come just a few days after the synopses for all 13 episodes leaked online, which may have confirmed a recent plot rumor.
Last week, it was reported that The Man Without Fear, Daredevil (Charlie Cox), will be appearing on the show in some capacity, although it wasn't stated when he may arrive. The synopsis for the season finale, AKA Smile, revealed that both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage receive help from someone else in the neighborhood. While Daredevil's name isn't specifically mentioned, many already assume that it's Matt Murdock who comes to their aid.
It's also possible that Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple, a.k.a. Night Nurse, could be the one who helps Jessica and Luke. The actress 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.
Marvel hasn't announced exact premiere dates yet for Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist, but they are expected to debut in 2016, along with the second season of Daredevil. The miniseries The Defenders is slated to arrive in 2017. 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. Take a look at these new photos from Marvel's Jessica Jones, and stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the November 20 premiere.
