Krysten Ritter is said to be the choice for the lead in a new Marvel studios series “Jessica Jones”.
The series is set to be a Netflix exclusive, part of a Marvel/Netflix programming deal.
Ritter, best known for her role on ABC sitcom “Don’t Trust the B”, was one of the final five actresses considered, and won out over Teresa Palmer. Ritter did a chemistry read with The Following‘s Mike Colter, believed to be the choice for male lead Luke Cage.
The series is the second in a four series deal. Jessica Jones, a superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, hangs up her suit and instead chooses to help other superheroes as a detective instead.
