One of the characters that I took a special interest in during the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones is Trish Walker, played by Rachael Taylor. The reason for this is that I, like a lot of comic book readers, know that Patricia Walker is the real name of the Marvel vigilante Hellcat. The radio talk show host came a long way during Season 1, training to fight and accompanying Jessica on several missions. Trish is actually the one who pushes Jessica the most into taking up a life as a crime-fighter, even once trying to convince her that she needed a superhero costume and codename in one flashback scene which featured the Easter egg of the Jewel costume that Jessica wore in her early years (also in flashbacks) in the comics.
HawtCelebs has shared several new photos from the set of Jessica Jones Season 2 which show Rachael Taylor’s Trish Walker looking fierce, appearing to come to the aide of Jessica’s neighbor Malcolm (Eka Darville) to fight off a couple of random thugs. Of particular note is the color scheme of her outfit in these images, as the yellow and blue are very reminiscent of Hellcat’s costume from the comics. Based on all of the set photos that have been coming from Season 2 so far, it does appear that Trish will be getting a more hands on role in the show next year. So, the question now is, will we eventually see Trish suit up as Hellcat in the future on Jessica Jones?
Head on over to HawtCelebs to check out these great images.
Jessica Jones Season 2 is set to debut sometime in 2018, but until then, we can next see Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones and Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker in Marvel’s The Defenders, where they will be joined by Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Scott Glenn as Stick, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darville as Malcolm, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Elodie Yung as Elektra and Sigourney Weaver as the series Big Bad, Alexandra.
Here is the synopsis for The Defenders:
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Marvel’s The Defenders will be available to stream on Netflix starting August 18, 2017.
Each Season Of The Marvel/Netflix Shows, Ranked
Just like their siblings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Netflix’s The Defenders-verse of streaming superheroes goes from two to three entries a year in 2017. First up is the first season of Iron Fist premiering on Netflix in less than two weeks, on March 17, the first six episodes of which are, I’m sorry to say, not very impressive. Fortunately, Marvel TV and Netflix have two more turns at the plate, with all their heroes joining for the highly-anticipated The Defenders team-up, expected this summer, and, in the fall or winter, with The Punisher spin-off starring Jon Bernthal.
Ahead of this wave of new stories, and just like we did with the MCU movies and Marvel movies overall, I thought it would worth taking a look at what’s worked and what hasn’t in each entry of the Netflix shows. Of course, the ranks are all opinion; I expect the first to be somewhat eyebrow-raising.
I decided to switch it up this time, start with the best this time and work my way down. Click Next to start!
