New character breakdowns for Jessica Jones Season 3 may indicate Curtiss Jackson, also known as the Power Broker, will serve as the Netflix show's newest villain.
That Hashtag Show published four character breakdowns, which are used to aid actors and producers in the casting process, and some theories about to whom from the comics those roles might correspond. You can read those descriptions below:
[ELLIOTT]Mid 30s-early 40s, male, open ethnicity. Must be over 5’11. A charismatic gambler and alcoholic. Attractive, quick-witted and dry. His edgy charm comes through even in the direst circumstances. SERIES REGULAR – ONE YEAR DEAL
[COLLINS]30-50, male, open ethnicity. He is physically spry, extremely intelligent and meticulous. Driven by a pathological need to feel superior. SERIES REGULAR – ONE YEAR DEAL
[KEIRA]48-52, female, please submit African American, Latina, Asian, Native American, etc. A bohemian cellist and music professor. Intelligent, wry and sexy. Self possessed and able to weather any storm. SERIES REGULAR – POSSIBLE TWO YEAR DEAL
[ZELDA]27-31, female, African American, strong, smart and driven. A rising star in her profession with the ambition and talent to propel her to the top one day. She’s earthy, beautiful, supportive and fiercely protective of those she loves. SERIES REGULAR – MULTI-YEAR DEAL
The article speculates "Collins" is actually Jackson, the founder of Power Broker, Inc. Through his company, Jackson augments those willing to pay for superpowers. The character also has close ties to Dr. Malus, the villain of Jessica Jones Season 2, as -- in the comics -- Malus worked for Jackson.
Building on that possibility, the article speculates "Elliot" is Edward Garner, who in the comics founds Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation (UCWF), an organization featuring superpowered wrestlers. Many of Garner's wrestlers received their powers through Power Broker, Inc., so there's a solid enough connection there to indicate Jessica Jones Season 3 will feature the UCWF in some capacity.
Although "Zelda" and "Keira" don't have any immediately apparent counterparts in the comics, their descriptions do indicate they could also appear in a potential Season 4.
Based on the Marvel Comics character created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the troubled, superpowered private investigator. In April, Netflix renewed the show for a third season.
Streaming now on Netflix, Jessica Jones Season 2 is executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, and stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, J. R. Ramirez as Oscar Arocho, Terry Chen as Pryce Cheng, Leah Gibson as Inez Green, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth and Janet McTeer.
