Superhero fans have a lot to look forward to this year. Marvel is tantalizing everyone with new photo releases and cast announcements for the upcoming Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Jessica Jones is designed for Netflix binge viewing and will drop all at once, leaving viewers to decide between self-control and immediate gratification.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is going into its third season with a whole new set of problems–and will force viewers to wait from one week to the next to find out what happens. It has certainly changed over the last seasons, making it a show much more worth watching as it develops its own place in the Marvel Universe rather than waiting on the movies.
Finally, there is Luke Cage, whichis going to require the greatest patience as it does not come out until sometime in 2016.
Will they be worth the wait? Let’s hope so!
With Marvel’s Jessica Jones airing on Netflix on November 20, 2015, the company has released its first publicity photos showing the actors in character. With a strong cast and a popular show preceding it, Jessica Jones is poised for people to love it. Here’s hoping they live up to that expectation!
Synopsis for Marvel’s Jessica Jones
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
The series stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker, and Carrie-Anne Moss. “Marvel’s 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.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
Marvel also released more images and cast news for Marvel’s Luke Cage, which comes to Netflix next year.
Synopsis for Luke Cage
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Season three sees our heroes struggling with the new crop of Inhumans, the threat from the Kree monolith, and–still and always–Hydra, now under Grant Ward who has a personal vendetta against Coulson and his team.
All in all, we have a lot to look forward to this next season.
