In an interview with ETonline, Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg confirmed that the show will crossover with fellow Netflix series Daredevil a little earlier than expected.

Confirming what has previously been rumored, Rosenberg revealed that Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple will appear in Jessica Jones

“I think I'm allowed to say: Rosario Dawson will be dropping in,” said Rosenberg. “Smaller characters that populated that world will be popping in.”

Temple's appearance wasn't the only thing Rosenberg revealed. She also let slip that one or more of Jessica Jones's superhero alter egos, such as Jewel or Knightress might appear. “We're going to hit on that! We're going to hit on it!”said Rosenberg.

Rosenberg also addressed the issue of whether Jones is a "feminist" hero, saying  “She herself wouldn’t consider herself a feminist. Or not! I approach this character not from telling a female story. Gender is not the first character aspect that defines her.”

Rosenberg had high praise for Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter, saying “She's funny! She's dark! She’s the real deal. She's utterly compelling, both the actress and the character. The first time I saw [Ritter] do drama was Breaking Bad. And she was just a guest star. We pushed her to some really dark, emotional places, and she just keeps going there. She's got incredible range!”

Rosenberg also described Jessica Jones as a "psychological thriller."

“Our show has plenty of action, but it's not about the action," she said. "It's about the character, it's about her emotional arc,” she explained. “And she's not a ninja. She never studies martial arts. She's a brawler. You piss her off and boom! You're down!"
 
“She's not out to save the city. She's out to make rent.”
