    I could see Sally Floyd appearing in this show at some point. Would toe back to DD as she works with Ben Urich. Actually, I could see Urich having a big role here too.

    I wonder how long until they announce that Paul Rudd will guest as Lang for a few episodes. That's got to happen.

    I don't think they're gonna be able to hook Rudd for this.

    He does have a connection to Jess. That's one of the only advantages of using Scott over Hank.

    Yeah but so did Carol Danvers and she's been replaced with Trish Walker.

    Unless he has a large hole in his schedule or just really really badly wants to do it I can't imagine Paul Rudd showing up in the show. And if he does it'd be a one-off thing I'd assume.

    I think there are a number of factors of why Scott Lang may not show up in the first season of Jessica Jones.

    1. Scott Lang resides on the West Coast (San Francisco) in Ant-Man and Jessica is in New York City.

    2. When does this show take place in relation to Ant-Man? If it takes place before Ant-Man then Scott is in prison and if it takes place after then we don't know what happens to Scott Lang.

    3. They might make Hope Van Dyne/Pym Scott's love interest in Ant-Man or he may get back with his ex-wife Maggie.

    I know Eka Darville from The Originals. Never seen the other two.

    Erin Moriarty is ridiculously cute so her casting is solid in my book. Darville and Traval are unknown to me but I'll be looking them up ala youtube. I've caught a bit of Eka in 'The Originals' but not enough to know for certain if he is a fit. We shall see.

    My take on the new casting for Jessica Jones:

    I may be wrong since it's been a while since I've read ALIAS, but isn't Malcolm the annoying kid that always asks to work for Jessica? And isn't Hope the mutant from the religious town?

    Malcolm Powder is indeed that kid. But the girl from the religious town was called Rebecca, not Hope. (Also, she was not a mutant, some people just thought she was. She was just a lesbian and someone with different ideas about the world than most people around her)

    A cop who takes his job seriously? Is that you Frank Castle?

    Having watched Carrie Ann Moss's Jeri Hogarth makes me wish that she should've been Maria Hill instead.

    No, no not...not Maria Hill.

    Jeri is a ...um...it rhymes with "hunt." Moss completely sold me on the fact that she...like...the actress herself...is a "hunt." That's how good she was in that role. Hill is a totally different character, making the same funny quips that every other Avengers character does. I feel like any attractive, likable actress in Hollywood could be Maria Hill, but it takes a certain set of qualities to play Jeri.

    And that right there, is the problem I have with Maria Hill in the MCU. I don't know if they always intended the character to be like that, or if the character was changed into that, because of the actress they hired. Had they cast Carrie Ann Moss instead, I'd like to think that Maria Hill would have been written a lot more closer to the comics.

    Whedon was writing...so Hill was going to sound like Whedon...just like practically everyone else in the movies (including the killer robot). I don't think that there was ever any chance of them hiring someone with more of an edge.

    There's a female attorney in Daredevil by the name of Rosalind Sharpe who also reminds me of Hogarth's character. May not have fit well with this specific character, but they are very similar.

    Yeah. That's the biggest reason why I wouldn't want the change, but they were still pretty similar.

    Surprised there's no Luke Cage thread, guess I'll comment in here. Colter was pretty great as Cage, and I've never care much for his previous performances either. Now I'm really looking forward to his show next year. I do think they made Cage a bit too nice in the MCU but could just be they can't have both heroes be a-holes on JJ :hehe: Hopefully we get to see more of his angry side and more tearing it up on his show.

    Cloak and Dagger:
    Runaways in New York, so a PI may be hired to find them. They get mugged and dosed with a fancy new drug that gives them superpowers which sort of lines up with the MGH storyline in JJ that they can't follow too specifically.
