Jessica Jones Stars In First 'Defenders' Set Photos

Filming has now officially begun on The Defenders, as all of Marvel and Netflix's superheroes will share the screen for the first time. Yet on the first day of shooting, it seems Jessica Jones is starting off meeting non costumed hero and officer Misty Knight, and perhaps not under the best circumstances.

A day after Simone Missick was confirmed to be in The Defenders cast, she is seen in the show's opening set photo with Krysten Ritter, although Ritter is alone and made to look worse for wear in other shots.

 

 

 

 

Jessica Jones Season One not only launched Jessica but also Luke Cage, paving the way for the solo Luke Cage series and the introduction of Misty. But while Jessica and Misty share a common link in Luke, that may not come up while a clearly on duty Misty is questioning a clearly suspicious Jessica.

Of course, even if Jessica has to be brought in for questioning, she has her legal resources. In fact, the show's Twitter account officially welcomed Carrie-Anne Moss on board as Jessica's semi-ally and attorney Hogarth, along with her new legal associate and one of Jessica's other quasi-friends.

 

 

Eka Darville joins Ritter, Moss, Mike Colter and Rachael Taylor as Jessica Jones Season One cast members now in The Defenders. At this point, it would seem the only major Jones character not in The Defenders is Kilgrave, who has the excuse of being dead.

Since the end of Season One, Hogarth expanded her workplace circle by hiring Elden Henson's Foggy away from Daredevil. But with Daredevil and Karen Page both in The Defenders, Foggy's escape from his old job and friends clearly won't work for too long.

Filming these reunions and first encounters should go on for some time now, with The Defenders coming together on Netflix sometime in 2017.
