Looks Like Another ‘Jessica Jones’ Star Is Gearing Up for ‘The Defenders’
More and more, it seems as if the worlds of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will bleed into one another for The Defenders, and if you thought Jessica would join up without her best fiend in tow, you’ve got hell to pay. A new post from Jessica Jones star Rachael Taylor makes it seem as if Trish Walker is training to Defend herself in a big way.
Take this with a grain of salt for the moment, given that several Daredevil and Jessica Jones stars have already somewhat confirmed their returns, but Taylor’s latest Instagram post tellingly tags Netflix and Jessica Jones to showcase her fight training:
Mind you, training is nothing new for Patsy “Trish” Walker, who was frequently seen in equally rigorous workouts over the course of Jessica Jones Season 1, but it’s definitely a good bet those moves will be put to use when The Defenders films later this year. No word on whether we’ll see Trish adopting her comic alter-ego of Hellcat, but there’s always Jessica Jones Season 2, said to be filming back-to-back with The Defenders.
Elsewhere of The Defenders, we know that Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marcos Siega will showrun the team-up miniseries, with filming expected to begin later this year. As evidenced by the first teaser, fellow Daredevil characters Stick and The Hand will likely play major parts, but no word yet on Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, given his own spinoff series.
Trish seems like a perfectly natural addition for The Defenders, but is there any chance she’ll end up fighting alongside them?
