'Jessica Jones': First Look at Krysten Ritter On Set

5 February 2015 5:37 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just two months after joining the cast of the Netflix TV series Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter was spotted on the New York City set during the first day of production. Unfortunately, we don't see the actress in her superhero attire, but, given the nature of the show, which is set after she retired as a costumed crime fighter, it isn't known if we will see the actress in costume during the 13-episode first season. At any rate, production is under way in Bronx, New York. As you can see in one of the photos, the production appears to be shooting under the code name "Violet."

Krysten Ritter will be joined by David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia "Trish" Walker) and the latest casting addition, Carrie-Anne Moss. While the identity of Carrie-Anne Moss's character was not revealed, she was described as, "a no-nonsense »

2 February 2015 1:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Star of The Matrix trilogy, Carrie-Anne Moss, has joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series, A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Her addition to the expanding crew of supporting characters is the third in as many weeks. A sign that Marvel and Netflix are gearing up to enter production, no doubt.

People who exhibit “extraordinary abilities,” i.e. other superheroes.

According to Marvel, who announced the news today, Moss “plays a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica…if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.” This authoritative figure is the exact type of character Moss is so well-honed to play, »

David Tennant cast as villain in Marvel's Aka Jessica Jones

27 January 2015 12:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The tenth Doctor himself David Tennant will play villain Kilgrave in Marvel’s Aka Jessica Jones series…

Exciting news this, it’s been announced that the tenth Doctor himself, David Tennant, will be taking on the role of a key villain in Marvel’s Aka Jessica Jones Netflix series. The news came yesterday from an official Marvel announcement, which confirmed Mr Tennant would be portraying ‘the villainous Kilgrave’ throughout the 13-episode series. 

With this longer-form storytelling framework, we would expect more screentime for Tennant than his Doctor Who predecessor Christopher Eccleston got in Thor: The Dark World. He joins Krysten Ritter, who has already been confirmed as the title character Jessica Jones.

The announcement described Kilgrave as ‘an enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, [whose] reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.’ This plays nicely into the traditional Jessica Jones bio which paints her as a hero-turned-detective, »

Marvel casts David Tennant as truly heinous 'A.K.A. Jessica Jones' villain

26 January 2015 2:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marvel announced today that they have found their villain for the Netflix original show “A.K.A. Jessica Jones.” Former Time Lord David Tennant will be stepping into the Purple Man’s dashing suits. To quote Wikipedia (I know, I know), Killgrave’s superpower is that “[h]is body produces pheromones which allow him to verbally control the actions of others.” David Tennant has been cast to play an emotionally manipulative Grimace. Basically, he's Prince Xizor from “Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire,” only slimier. Hopefully the “A.K.A. Jessica Jones” writers have the deft touch needed when dealing with a villain who uses his superpower to roofie women and has a history of gross manipulation that regularly wanders into trigger warning territory. Tennant will star opposite Krysten Ritter in the titular role and Mike Colter who will play Jessica’s husband Luke Cage. The show is being developed by executive producer Melissa Rosenberg. »
