‘Defenders’ Confirms ‘Jessica Jones’ Returning Cast, Plus First Set Photos!
It’s a Marvel-ous time to be in New York, as the combined casts of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist have hit the streets for The Defenders. Not only do our first set photos reveal a tense stand-off between Jessica Jones and Misty Knight, but so too have more super-friends signed on for the expansive cast!
SuperHeroHype obtained our first “Group Therapy” set photos, light on context, in which a bloodied-looking Jessica Jones faces down the barrel of a gun from none other than Simone Missick’s Misty Knight. One wonders if perhaps Jessica ventured up to Harlem in the wake of Luke’s incarceration, but either way Misty isn’t looking too comfortable:
Not only that, but following confirmed announcements of Missick and Deborah Ann Woll, The Defenders now confirms that Elden Henson’s Foggy, Carrie-Anne Moss’ Jeri Hogarth and Eka Darville’s Malcolm will also return for The Defenders as well:
The team-up series will be helmed by Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, beginning production later this year with Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson. Other returning characters so far include Daredevil’s Scott Glenn, while Sigourney Weaver has signed on as the main, as-yet-unidentified villain.
We’d guess any number of set photos and cast announcements might come in the next weeks, but how do The Defenders seem to be shaping up so far?
