A Bayformers Alumnus Will Unleash Her Inner Hellcat in AKA Jessica Jones


That’s Rachael Taylor, the somewhat improbable expert Aussie hacker from the first Transformers, whose character name I feel certain you don’t remember, and who saved the world never to be seen again. She’ll probably have a little bit more to do in AKA Jessica Jones, in which she plays radio host Patricia Walker. And since is actually acknowledging that the character became Hellcat in the comics – note that they did not mention Purple Man by his villain name when they announced David Tennant – I’d say there are plans to have her scratch a few people.

I don’t have a particular opinion here – Michael Bay cast her for her looks, but Marvel usually seeks something more. Here’s hoping she has it.
