Jessica Jones May Feature Daredevil; Motion Poster Highlights Purple Man

Jessica JonesBy Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS)

We finally got a chance to watch the Jessica Jones full trailer last week and it looks brilliant. Like Marvel’s film counterparts, Krysten Ritter’s character Jessica Jones looks like it can fit into the world of Hell’s Kitchen that Daredevil helped define, and yet present its own unique take and mood.

While we know that the show will feature Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Collider Heroes host Jon Schnepp has revealed that we should expect Charlie Cox to make an appearance as well. Here’s what he said:

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.

Having Daredevil, or even just Matt Murdock, show up on Jessica Jones wouldn’t surprise me, but I assume that it will only be a cameo appearance. One possibility is that Carrie-Anne Moss is playing the role of Jeryn Hogarth, who is a businessman and lawyer in the comics, so the courtroom is a natural place for the characters to cross paths.

Another possibility would be a coda or epilogue at the end of the series with Daredevil wanting to talk to Jones about the Defenders Initiative. I’m only half joking about that but I can see a similar scene happening. More likely, I think that Rosario Dawnson’s character Claire Temple, aka Night Nurse, will be the Nick Fury character that will bring all of the heroes together. She’s already in Jessica Jones, will be back for Daredevil season 2, and is set to appear in Luke Cage. Have her show up in Iron Fist, and she may be the only person who knows the identities off all the Hell’s Kitchen heroes.

That’s not the only news out of Jessica Jones. The trailers have kept David Tennent’s the Purple Man in the shadows but a new poster and motion poster highlight the character. Check out the image below and the motion poster:


That’s a great looking poster, and harkens back to the fact that David Mackprovided the covers for the comic book series. I did wonder if he painted this poster, as well, but something looks a bit too digital for it to be Mack’s work. It’s at least a nice nod in that direction.

Jessica Jones will premiere on November 20, 2015 on Netflix.
