After finally announcing a release date for Jessica Jones yesterday morning, Marvel has announced that they’ll be bringing Jessica Jones – and a few friends – to this year’s NYCC!
This will be the first appearance of the Jessica Jones cast to promote the upcoming November 20th release, and like the Daredevil panel last year, they’ll be bringing along a first look at the long awaited series. Given that Marvel held a signing with the Daredevil cast at last year’s convention, I wouldn’t be surprised if a signing were announced shortly before NYCC kicks off on October 8th.
Marvel will also be premiering a brand new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (episode 3×03) for fans lucky enough to attend the panel on Friday, October 9th. With Clark Gregg having made an appearance at NYCC last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he returns to introduce the episode and briefly talk about what fans can expect from the third season of S.H.I.E.L.D..
There is no confirmation that the casts of Agent Carter or Daredevil, both of which are currently filming their second seasons, will make an appearance as of right now, but I’d expect that to change.
Here is the full press release from Marvel:
