Next year will be the first time that Netflix will release three Marvel shows in a calendar year. Iron First is set to premiere in March, followed by The Defenders and Punisher later in the year. With filming happening all around New York City, we get occasional set photos from the filming of The Defenders. Today’s photos reunite the awesome one-two punch of Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor).
The connection between Trish and Jessica was a strong part of the Jessica Jones series which hit the internet about a year ago. The duo spent some of their childhood together following the traumatic accident that took Jessica’s family. At various points, they have looked out for one another and come to one another’s defense. While Trish’s excitement about the superhero gig may grate on Jessica, she ultimately needs her friend badly. While the first season of Jessica Jones rightfully focused on Jessica and her lack of desire to be a superhero, we did see some hints of Trish becoming a hero in her own right. While we haven’t seen any signs of her “Hellcat” alter ego, she does experiment with some of Nuke’s pills and gets into a fight of her own. (Worth noting: Trish also made an audio cameo when her radio show appeared in Luke Cage.)
Are you excited to see these two together again? What role do you think Trish may play in The Defenders? Do you think we will see Hellcat next year?
