‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’ Teases Krysten Ritter, More Cast Photos

Netflix has released the first cast photos for “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” its comic adaption that stars Krysten Ritter as a failed superhero-turned-detective in New York City.

The show, which bows on Nov. 20, is the second of the four original series set to debut under Netflix’s deal with Marvel. “Marvel’s Daredevil” premiered earlier this year to favorable reviews and a second season (with new showrunners) is planned for 2016. Netflix will soon roll out “Marvel’s Luke Cage” and “Marvel’s Iron Fist.” The four series lead up to the teaming of the main characters in the Netflix miniseries “Marvel’s The Defenders.”

The various characters have the potential to overlap within the series’ universe — as evident by the below “Jessica Jones” cast photo of Mike Colter, who stars in the “Luke Cage” property. And Rosario Dawson, who first appeared in “Daredevil,” will appear in “Luke Cage”.

“Jessica Jones” is executive produced by series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (“Twilight,” “Dexter”) and Liz Friedman (“Elementary”), along with Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Heroes”), who is Marvel’s head of television. The cast also includes David Tennant, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty and Wil Traval.
