Marvel has kicked off production on its second standalone Netflix series “A.K.A. Jessica Jones,” and several photos of Krysten Ritter as the titular character have surfaced online.

Following the debut of “Daredevil” starring Charlie Cox on April 10 — which promotion kicked off this week with the first official teaser trailer — the show will be released this year as well.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this was just actress leaving her house, but that’s probably because “A.K.A. Jessica Jones” is set after Jones decided to quit being a superhero so it isn’t known if we will see her in costume during the 13-episode first season leading up to “The Defenders.” At any rate, the production is underway in Bronx, New York Under the working title “Violet.”

The Series Start Shooting

After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.

Ritter has signed on to star as the title character, along with Mike Colter (The Following) as Luke Cage, David Tennant (Broadchurch) as Zebediah Killgrave, Rachael Taylor (Transformers) as Trish Walker/Hellcat and Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) as “a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica…if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.”
