It appears that the Netflix’s Marvel series is taking off to a good start. We heard earlier this year the casting for Daredevil and its director. We now have learned that Marvel characters Luke Cage and Jessica Jones have been cast by Mike Colter(Zero Dark Thirty, Million Dollar Baby) and Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, Veronica Mars).

These two are not yet a household name but have definitely left a mark in hollywood and have bright futures ahead of them. The Netflix Marvel series will launch both of these characters, along with Daredevil, and Iron Fist into there individual shows. Once each has aired, Netflix plans to release a joint series entitled “The Defenders”. Hopefully the performances of these actors do not go unnoticed and give them a chance to enter into the big screen Marvel universe. Only time will tell.
