About a year ago Marvel struck a deal with Netflix to produce four shows with the streaming juggerrnaut. The focus of the shows would be Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Also part of the deal was a miniseries for The Defenders.
Now that Daredevil is well into production, attention has shifted to the casting of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Currently Alexandria Daddario, Teresa Palmer, Krysten Ritter and Jessica De Gouw are all rumored to be in the running for Jessica Jones. Lance Gross and Mike Coulter are both being considered for Luke Cage. I think Daddario would be an amazing choice for Jessica Jones.
It’s been reported that Jessica Jones will focus on the approach taken by Brian Michael Bendis in his comic series Alias. That series focused on Jones moving on from her previous life as a superhero and becoming a private eye.
Daredevil is set to hit Netflix next year with a 13 episode first season. No word on when the next the remaining three shows will air.
Who would you cast as your Jones, Cage and Iron Fist?
