Hellcat is Joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

There’s some new exciting casting news out of the upcoming Netflix Defenders shows: Rachel Taylor has been cast as Patsy Walker in the Jessica Jones show, and Patsy Walker is the superhero known as Hellcat! That’s just purrfect! I mean…wait…no, I can do better than that. Casting Rachel Taylor is…the cat’s meow? Oh jeez, I think I’ve bottomed out…

How is it possible that I’m out of good cat puns this early into my career?!

Patsy Walker is going to be a syndicated talk radio host and Jessica Jones’ best friend, so that’s pretty neat. You may remember Taylor from Grey’s Anatomy or, as I know her, the Aussie hacker from the first Transformers movie. Whatever happened to her character? Am I the only human being on the planet who wants to know what happened to all the various human Transformers movie characters who simply disappeared between films?

Regardless, I’m sure Taylor will be awesome on the show. And casting Hellcat (though there’s no promise that she’ll become Hellcat) opens up a world of possibilities. Just imagine what minor Marvel characters could pop up on these shows and maybe join the eventual Defenders.

I think I smell a new listicle coming…

  1. This made me very happy. I just love that Marvel is making their universe so big. I wish dc would do the same but they want it different for some reason.
