After Luke Cage blew up Horseshoe Bar back in July (the bar appears in this scene of Jessica Jones, and in the trailer), everyone’s favorite thick-skinned Avenger is back on the scene. This time, it looks like Jessica Jones’s hubby is doing it up in Williamsburg. The Marvel character (played by Mike Colter) is the hero of a forthcoming Netflix show, and “Tiara” (its production title) will be filming at Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow. This afternoon, the venue was transformed into Harlem’s Paradise, a nod to the neighborhood where Luke was born before he was falsely imprisoned and then went on to develop superpowers, yada yada yada. Fun fact: Luke at one point was in the Defenders, and worked for Nighthawk. (The superhero, not the movie theater.)
If you’ve seen the signs, you know that a mysterious production called VIOLET has been shooting in the East Village recently, and if you were anywhere near the Horseshoe Bar, aka 7B, you may have seen that they were filming a “one-time explosion.” Turns out VIOLET is code name for the Netflix series Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter. Like Daredevil, it’s set in the Marvel universe of superheroes, which sounds like one of the best reasons to blow the (fake) doors off of one of our favorite dives.
