In Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones, Ritter stars in the titular role of the superhero who decides to become a private detective. Dressed for the part, Ritter donned ripped jeans, a leather jacket and fingerless gloves on set Tuesday. During a heated scene with an NYC police officer, Ritter threw his hand off of her.

When Ritter – best known for staring on Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 and playing Jesse’s girlfriend Jane on Breaking Bad – found out she’d landed the role of Jessica Jones last year, she took to Instagram to celebrate.”Guys!! I am so completely over the moon & grateful for this opportunity to bring Jessica Jones to life!” she wrote. “Thank you Melissa Rosenberg, everyone at @marvel @netflix and all of my fans for your support! Wooo! Dream big kiddies!”

Earlier this month, Ritter showed her followers the progress she’d been making in the weight room to take on the superhero role. “Got any band aids?” she captioned the snap of her impressive bicep.

AKA Jessica Jones is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in December. Ritter will reprise the Jessica Jones role in Netflix’s companion series The Defenders, which will follow a S.H.I.E.L.D. team composed of similarly skilled crime fighters.
