'Jessica Jones' Season 2 Could Feature Marvel Superhero Cameos That Fans Haven't Seen Before
Private investigator Jessica Jones is understandably tactiturn when sharing information, but thank goodness actress Krysten Ritter's a little more loose-lipped than her character. Fans will be pleased to hear that Jessica Jones Season 2 will be filmed back to back with Netflix's The Defenders. In an interview with Digital Spy, Ritter revealed "I'm excited to see what happens next for Jessica, and the end of season one left a lot of doors open and questions unanswered. Kilgrave was her reason for getting up every morning. Saving people gave her purpose. I wonder how emotionally taxed she's going to be now. That opens a lot of doors as to who will come out and play. We all live in the same universe, so there are endless possibilities." Basically, Jessica Jones Season 2 could feature other Marvel heroes. Can I get a hell yeah?
However, it could be some time before we see Season 2: Ritter emphasized that she'll be filming The Defenders first and Jessica Jones after this: “They’ll be back-to-back. I don’t know if they’ll overlap a little bit. It’s about to be a serious undertaking. I’m starting my physical training — lots of weight training and boxing.” So we may have a little while to wait. But let's focus on the sunshine in this news, namely: who could we expect to appear from the Marvel universe?
You could argue that we've already had Nuke, or a version of him in the character of Will Simpson, who gives in to the dark forces via the consumption of pills. The Daredevil villain was nicknamed Frank Simpson in the comics (another parallel?) and also takes pills to increase his adrenaline and then calm him down. However, this connection hasn't explicitly been made yet. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Will Simpson under the name of Nuke in a future episode, or if we get a separate Nuke who works alongside Simpson. Perhaps this is just intended as narrative foreshadowing.
In episode 6, "AKA You're A Winner," Jones drops the name of another private investigator to Luke: Angela Del Toro. Marvel fans will recognize this as the name of the fourth person to become White Tiger. Does this mean we should be prepped for a White Tiger cameo? Or are the producers just trying to create the sensation that we're in a post-Marvel world, where all the superheroes are operating simultaneously? I guess we'll have to wait until Season 2 to find out.
What Culture has already noted a figure shadowboxing at the beginning of the Jessica Jones credits that looks like Daredevil. Is it just a matter of time before he cameos on Jessica Jones?
While it's hard to imagine the second season of Jessica Jones actually surpassing the first, how could we not be happy about even more Marvel character crossovers?
