We’ve already heard that season two of Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix will be “dark and heavy,” that it will include a scene where Jessica and Trish Walker get in trouble with some cops, and that Oscar nominee Janet McTeer will pop up as a very important mystery character, but none of that tells us very much about what to expect in the show’s new season. A rumor based on some casting news might provide a nice hint, though.
According to Variety, Leah Gibson from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes has joined the cast as someone named Ingrid, who “has an education as a nurse” but is also “street-wise.” That description—and perhaps the weirdness of saying “has an education as a nurse”—has led people to theorize that Ingrid is actually longtime Daredevil villain Typhoid Mary. In the comics, she’s a woman with dissociative identity disorder and a number of different superpowers, and she’s the kind of character who could give Krysten Ritter’s Jones a chance to throw down in a proper superhero battle.
Gibson will be a series regular on Jessica Jones, so whoever this Ingrid is, she’ll be relatively important.
