A few months ago, Marvel launched their second show on Netflix with Jessica Jones. Unlike Daredevil, this show had a plethora of female characters and more super powered people. Now that the series is out, we are all waiting to hear about a second season.
Should the series get picked up for a new season, we should expect the majority of the main cast to return. One of those characters would be Jeri Hogarth, played by Carrie-Anne Moss. She recently spoke to Comic Book Resources about her experience on the show and the possibility of joining other shows in the future.
Jeri was a strong character at the center of a lot of what happened in season 1. Moss was able to bring a strong performance to the character, which was one of the main reasons she joined the cast.
I loved the idea of the character. I didn’t know a lot about her; they told me some things about her, and sort of a little bit of her journey, but I’m getting to know the character as I’m shooting, because every episode, I’m learning more about her. They’re not telling me ahead of time because they’re pretty secretive about their scripts, so we’re getting them literally the week before we’re shooting them, sometimes three or four days before we’re shooting them.
Since Marvel is so secretive with scripts, it can be difficult for actors to know exactly what they are getting themselves into. For Moss, she knew she would be getting good stories without knowing specific details.
I knew that it was going to be fun, and that it was going to have a lot of different colors to it. I wasn’t exactly sure that it was going into the direction that it goes. I knew it was all building up to something that I wasn’t quite sure what it was going to be. But that was kind of fun.
The character of Jeri was gender swapped from Jeryn Hogarth in the comics. Moss did not look to gar into the comic history and instead relied on the showrunner.
I really relied on what Melissa gave me. I did look — I mean, I looked it up a little bit, but because the story was so radically different and what was created for me, I really trusted that I could find her. That I wasn’t bringing to life this super-known character, that I had some freedom there.
Thanks to the character’s comic history, it has been speculated and rumored that she could have crossover appearances in Iron Fist and possibly Luke Cage or season 2 of Daredevil. Even though nothing has been finalized, Moss would be up for it if Marvel gives her the call.
I mean, how fun, just to explore that. It’s infinite. The possibilities are just so massive. I think it’s such an exciting time for me, right now, to be in this show and to be a part of the Marvel world. I’m just all in, you know.
We will have to wait and see if/when Moss makes more appearances as Jeri Hogarth and what show those appearances end up being in. With Daredevil done filming and Luke Cage deep in production, she could appear in either of those. There’s also the possibility of a second season for Jessica Jones potentially coming at the end of 2016 or in 2017.
Jessica Jones is currently available on Netflix.
