It’s been barely a month since they announced a third season for Jessica Jones yet the creative team behind the show is already at it prepping their third season. And our friends at That Hashtag Show have gotten their hands on some juicy character breakdowns for the season.
[COLLINS]30-50, male, open ethnicity. He is physically spry, extremely intelligent and meticulous. Driven by a pathological need to feel superior. SERIES REGULAR – ONE YEAR DEAL
Collins, they reckon, could be a stand-in for Curtiss Jackson who is better known in the comics NOT as 50 Cent but as the Power Broker. Like Season 2’s Karl Malus, the Power Broker is a baddie that augments normies with superhuman abilities. Malus and Jackson have worked alongside each other in the comics so there is an established connection with the show should Collins turn out as Curtiss Jackson.
[ELLIOTT]Mid 30s-early 40s, male, open ethnicity. Must be over 5’11. A charismatic gambler and alcoholic. Attractive, quick-witted and dry. His edgy charm comes through even in the direst circumstances. SERIES REGULAR – ONE YEAR DEAL
According to THS, Elliot could be a stand-in for Edward Garner, a dude who ran the Ultimate Wrestling Class Federation, a wrestling promotion that pit superpowered civilians against each other. And guess where those folks got their abilities? From Power Broker himself. Wrestling has recently become a hot commodity for Netflix with the massive success of their show G.L.O.W. so I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up being a central element for the show. Plus, it gives them the opportunity to bring out more obscure C-listers for the show like they did with the Whizzer. We need D-Man in the MCU!
[KEIRA]48-52, female, please submit African American, Latina, Asian, Native American, etc. A bohemian cellist and music professor. Intelligent, wry and sexy. Self-possessed and able to weather any storm. SERIES REGULAR – POSSIBLE TWO YEAR DEAL
[ZELDA]27-31, female, African American, strong, smart and driven. A rising star in her profession with the ambition and talent to propel her to the top one day. She’s earthy, beautiful, supportive and fiercely protective of those she loves. SERIES REGULAR – MULTI-YEAR DEAL
For Jessica Jones Season 2, we broke a story on 4 characters, one of which ended up being Karl Malus himself while the other three ended up as original characters. These last two characters – KIERA and ZELDA – may very well be new characters for the show. The ZELDA character has a multi-year deal so she may end up being one of the new main characters for the show now that Trish has gone crazy.
