A list of names has appeared online pertaining to be the potential actors for Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Luke Cage…
Marvel’s upcoming Defenders project on Netlix, which promises an interlinking narrative and a grittier side of the McU, is a bit of a mystery to us. Save for a few names (Charlie Cox for Daredevil, Rosario Dawson for Night Nurse), we don’t know much of who’s involved. Today though, Marvel’s casting wishlist might have appeared online.
Deadline claims that The Divide’s Marin Ireland, Don’t Trust The B- star Krysten Ritter, Percy Jackson’s Annabeth Alexandra Daddario, I Am Number Four’s Teresa Palmer and Arrow’s Huntress Jessica De Gouw (pictured, in that order, above) are all on the shortlist for superhero detective Jessica Jones.
Another day, another superhero project letting slip its wish lists for actors to fill the lead roles. In this case, we have two of the Marvel/Netflix Defenders shows on the hunt for potential talent to don the central costumes. For Jessica Jones, the likes of Krysten Ritter, Alexandra Daddario, Teresa Palmer and Jessica De Gouw are all under consideration while Lance Gross and Mike Colter are potential Luke Cages.Jessica Jones is a fellow former Midtown high school classmate of Peter Parker’s, irradiated in a car crash with a military convoy carrying radioactive chemicals. She wakes from a coma with super strength and the ability to fly (although she never properly masters it), renames herself 'Jewel' and sets herself on a superhero path that leads to substantial suffering. According to Deadline, the series will draw from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos’ Alias comics run, where a traumatised »
While Marvel's bigscreen plans have been extensively covered here, I've left reports of what's going on in the TV world to the uber-capable Alan Sepinwall and Dan Fienberg for the most part. Today, though, reports of possible casting for Jessica Jones had me thinking again about the Netflix series and just what a cool idea it is overall. Charlie Cox has already been cast as the lead in "Daredevil," and they've been shooting on that series for a little while now. They're just starting to cast for "Jessica Jones" now, and it sounds like a really solid list of possibilities so far. Alexandra Daddario would probably be my first choice, but that's true of pretty much whatever she is up for. I think Daddario's got real chops, and she's comic-book-gorgeous. She also seems like someone who could easily carry the character over from this TV incarnation into features if Marvel ever decided to do that. »

Who's going to play Jessica Jones, the superhero turned detective, on Jessica Jones, the upcoming Netflix series? If we believe Deadline, it may be one of these women: Krysten Ritter (Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23), Alexandra Daddario (True Detective), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), or Jessica De Gouw (Arrow). All four have reportedly been asked to screen-test for the role. There, now you're all caught up with the (potential) Joneses. »

With production already under way on Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel and Netflix are currently meeting with potential cast members to fill out two of their remaining three superhero shows, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Actresses Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad), Alexandra Daddario (True Detective), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow) have been invited to read for Jessica Jones, with all of the actresses falling between the 25-33 age range listed on the breakdown.
Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter, Birds of Prey) is writing and producing the series, which follows the title character suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, which causes her to retire as a superhero and form her own detective agency where she helps out other heroes. Deadline reports that Luke Cage will also appear in six or seven of the 13 Jessica Jones episodes, before moving on to his own series.

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation. Dr. Strange director Scott Derrickson thinks I'm a F*cktard. Sony claims things I say have “no validity whatsoever.”
This Week: Marvel casting abound! But what does it mean? That plus a probably not true breakdown of the whole plot of the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
With the announcement that Daniel Bruhl was joining Captain America: Civil War as a villain, the internet was sent into detective-mode (not by Serial) to try and discover who this new villain is and why Variety claimed Bruhl’s character would be back as the antagonist in Doctor Strange.
That made no sense, as there’s not a Mystical Marvel character that would naturally fit into what we understand will be a Tony Stark Vs. Stever Rogers whilst pining for Bucky movie. »
With Marvel’s ever-expanding Cinematic Universe crammed so full of characters, plots, and crossovers, it’s no surprise their bag of tricks has burst onto the small screen. Their new roster of TV shows has already found a home with streaming giant, Netflix, where they will all debut exclusively. Thanks to Deadline, who landed the scoop this morning, we now have an inkling as to who will be heading up one of those series: Jessica Jones.
Testing on the show has begun with Alexandra Daddario, Krysten Ritter, Teresa Palmer and Jessica De Gouw all in contention for the lead. Landing on a Marvel shortlist of course does wonders for any actor, even if they don’t bag the role. The fact that their resume has linked them to what’s bound to be a well-watched piece of entertainment is an achievement in itself.
