Luke Cage who? Now that Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) has finally defeated her tormentor, Kilgrave (David Tennant), it looks like she is ready to move on and finally be happy. In new leaked photos for Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2, the “classy” heroine who has a drinking problem was spotted smooching a mysterious guy.
Move Over, Luke Cage
Jessica Jones and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) might be married in the comics but on Netflix’s Marvel universe, the private investigator has a new man. After finding out that Jessica, under the control of Kilgrave, killed Reva (Parisa Fitz-Henley), Luke’s ex, the two parted ways. Power Man met Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) and start dating. And while Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will have to team-up as The Defenders, they are unlikely to have a romantic reunion.
In fact, the new photos from the set of Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2 see the private investigator in the arms of another man. Check out more photos from KrystenPhotos.net
So far, the identity of the new character is yet to be divulged. However, considering that Ritter is sporting a shorter hairstyle in the leaked set photos, it could be assumed that the scene is a flashback to a previous relationship.
Movie Pilot pointed out that there are a few men in Jessica’s past in the comic books including Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man. Because he is a movie hero, it is safe to say that he will not be crossing over to Marvel’s Jessica Jones in Season 2. The private investigator also had a massive crush on Peter Parker as a teen, but that does not look like Tom Holland so he is out of the picture, too.
What remains is Clay Quartermain, a member of the U.S. Air Force and later of S.H.I.E.L.D. To recall, Season 1 ended with Will Simpson (Wil Traval) going rouge after injecting himself with supersoldier serum. He presumably will be the villain of Season 2.
That said, Jessica could be reconnecting with her old flame, Clay Quartermain, in order to investigate Officer Simpson who was turned into Nuke and his connection with the IGH. Whether they will rekindle their romance remains to be seen.
Marvel-Netflix’s Connection To Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel Television boss Jeph Loeb seems to be hinting that it is possible for S.H.I.E.L.D. to crossover to other Marvel shows on Netflix. While he did not directly say that Quake will one day fight alongside Daredevil (Charlie Cox) at one point, unlike Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, he did not offer an outright denial that it could happen either.
Here is what he said during the panel at New York Comic-Con last year (via TV Guide): “It’s a fair question. And the fair answer is… Stay tuned).
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is quite special in a sense that the series has featured the superheroes of the big screen like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). The show also has a direct connection to the events of the MCU including Captain America: Civil War.
In contrast, Marvel’s Jessica Jones and others have been outsiders. Feige has repeatedly commented that The Defenders are unlikely to crossover with the Avengers (even if a massive cosmic war threatens the Earth and the entire universe).
Hopefully, if true, then Jessica’s ex could open doors for future crossover events between the for television properties. Maybe, one day, Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) fight alongside the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) as the Thunderbolts.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2 is slated to be released sometime in 2018. Meanwhile, catch Ritter with Colter, Cox and Finn Jones in Marvel’s The Defenders on Aug. 18 on Netflix.
