Daredevil & Jessica Jones New York Comic-Con round up: New characters revealed and more..

jones.0.0New York Comic-con was this weekend and whilst there Marvel held a Marvel and Netflix panel and released a lot of information ahead of Jessica Jones: Season 1 and Daredevil Season 2.

On Jessica Jones front the biggest news that was released was that previously announced actress Carrie Anne Moss will be playing lawyer Jeryn Hogarth whats significant about this it’s a major change from the comic books as there the character is a man.

Also not as significant but it was mentioned that Luke Cage’s role in season 1 is a small one. It was also confirmed that Cage and Jessica Jones will have a romantic relationship somewhere down the line. At the panel they also screened the pilot for the first time, for the fans in attendance.

Whilst speaking to IGN after the panel previously announced actor Will Travel whose character listed on IMDB as “NYPD Cop” revealed that his character will be called “Simpson”. The character will be based on post-Vietnam War super soldiers and admits his characters has been reinvented in the show.

This has lead people to speculate that Travel will be playing Frank Simpson who in the comics becomes Nuke who as result of a botched attempt to recreate Captain America’s Super Soldier serum. In the comics  Nuke is more of a villain to Daredevil then Jessica Jones. Below is the IGN Interview.

The most information was revealed on the Daredevil Season 2 front. Here is a description of a trailer that was revealed at the top of the panel also reported by IGN “In montage, we see Daredevil in full costume going down a grimy stairway, Elektra putting on a veil-type mask across her lower face, and bullet shells being picked up off the floor of a crime scene. We see Karen looking at an x-ray-type image of a stylized skull… and then Frank Castle aka The Punisher (we don’t see his full face) walks down what appears to be a hospital corridor holding a gun. In voice over he says just one word, ‘Beg‘.” Other sources are reporting that the voice over also said “Vindication. Your work is not yet finished”. No word yet on if the trailer will be released any time soon.

Below is multiple interviews that were conducted after the panel for Marvels Youtube channel both with the cast of  Jessica Jones and Daredevil and Daredevil executive producers Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie .
