With the multiplex scheduled to be dominated by comic book movies to 2020 and beyond, rumors, casting details, and plot speculation will become a near daily routine, if it hasn’t already. And with Marvel prepping a handful of Netflix projects, you can expect that noise to get even louder.
And so it goes, because today Deadline reveals that Krysten Ritter, Alexandra Daddario, Teresa Palmer, and Jessica De Gouw are all testing for the lead role in the 13-episode “Jessica Jones.” Melissa Rosenberg (“Twilight“) is writing and producing the series about the former superhero turned private detective, and it’ll be interesting to see who wins the lead. Each actress would certainly imbue the character with a slightly different flavor, so tell us who you like below (or make another suggestion).
Meanwhile, casting for “Luke Cage” is happening too, with Lance Gross and Mike Colter apparently in the mix. In true Marvel fashion, the character is expected to show up in at least half the “Jessica Jones” episodes.
