With Marvel’s new show The Defenders announced to air, speculation of filming schedules has been brought to mind to those awaiting for the television’s grittier Avengers, which is set to unite Marvel vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage against an unknown force in NYC.
It’s been updated, however, that Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter is already working her way for filming for both her title show’s new season and The Defenders “back to back” and even going as far to mention “overlap”.
Ritter spoke to Digital Spy on her preparation for both shows:
It’s about to be a serious undertaking. I’m starting my physical training – lots of weight training and boxing.”
Ritte also opened her thoughts that the new season of Jessica Jones she feels excited to see what happens next for Jessica,” and that “the end of season one left a lot of doors open and questions answered.
The Defenders has also announced Eka Darvil to appear back as Jessica’s buddy Malcolm. He announced it to Spoiler TV:
I will be in it. I’m not sure how much yet, but I will be in it.”
The Defenders are forming slowly but surely, with the series aiming for a 2017 release.
Jessica Jones synopsis: Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need… especially if they’re willing to cut her a check.
