Daredevil has already completed its first season, so it’s time to look ahead to the other Marvel/Netflix shows, specifically, A.K.A Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter. Earlier today, we got a look at David Tennant as the Purple Man, but now it’s time to shift focus to another supporting character on the show, albeit one that’s considerably less purple.
Marvel announced a while back that Luke Cage would be one of its characters to star in a planned Netflix series, but he’ll first appear alongside Jessica Jones in the second to the four shows. Mike Colter will portay Cage, and finally, we can see what the man will look like prior to the show’s eventual premiere.
The first look comes from the actual set of the show, and it shows Colter and Ritter preparing to take off on a pretty sweet motorcycle.
Are those the only images?
Of course not. We’ll post a few more below, but you can check out a few more on the unofficial Defenders Twitter account.
How’s this version of Luke Cage look compared to the comics?
Well, he currently looks a lot less angry and ready to punch someone, but remember that these are on set photos, as opposed to shots of the character in motion. Behind-the-scenes shots, if you will.
Looks like Jessica and Luke will have some kind of relationship.
Definitely, the two are a married couple in the comics, though anything we say now about the show itself can only be considered speculation. That said, Marvel’s official description of the first meeting of the two characters alludes to more interesting interactions.
During the course of an investigation in New York City, private investigator Jessica Jones encounters the enigmatic Luke Cage – a man whose past has secrets that will dramatically alter Jessica in ways she could never have imagined.
So about those other images…
Oh, right! Here they are.
What’s up with the last image?
That one may have been taken during filming. Perhaps Jessica is tailing Cage or someone else? That’s an awfully large bush to just hang out next to.
Cool. So, when does Jessica Jones come to Netflix again?
Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones is set to premiere sometime this year, most likely after the Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man enthusiasm dies down. Like Daredevil, it’ll launch with 13 episodes and, hopefully, keep the Marvel/Netflix excitement train going until 2016.
