Deadline is reporting that Marvel has narrowed down their search for both Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
There were originally four names, though a fifth has been added to the report, in line to play the former heroine turned private eye. Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23), Alexandra Daddario (True Detective), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Jessica De Gouw (Arrow) and the added name Marin Ireland (The Divide).
Jessica Jones will be the second straight-to-series dramas for Netflix following the launch of Daredevil starring Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio. Luke Cage will appear in 6 or 7 episodes of Jessica Jones before spinning off into his own series. It will likely work the same for Iron Fist once the Luke Cage series is up and running.
