Marvel has reportedly found its Jessica Jones in Krysten Ritter!

According to Deadline, the 32-year-old actress was one of five actresses, including Teresa Palmer, who tested for the role opposite The Following‘s Mike Colter, who is believed to have landed the male lead of Luke Cage.

Coming from Dexter head writer Melissa Rosenberg, the 13-episode Netflix drama will center on Jessica Jones, “a superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, which leads to her hanging up her costume and opening her own detective agency, where she ends up helping people and assisting other superheroes.”

    At first glance, Teresa Palmer would seem to be the more logical choice. But if they are going to dig deeper into the character and have some more lighthearted moments in the mix, Krysten can be your girl.

    I don’t know much about Krysten but, I’m totally psyched for the show. Can’t wait for this and the 4 (maybe 5…The Defenders)others.
