So as we learned a little while back, several series of TV shows are coming to Netflix to be part of the MCU.

The second such series will be Jessica Jones (sometimes called "AKA Jessica Jones" depending on the source).

The big news today? Reportedly (http://io9.com/krysten-ritter-will-play-marvels-superpowered-detective-1666926783), the character will be played be Krysten Ritter! You might recognize her from Breaking Bad (Jesse's ill-fated girlfriend Jane) or the sitcom Don't Trust the B- in Apartment 23.

CONFIRMED: Marvel has confirmed yesterday's news (http://marvel.com/news/tv/23762/krysten_ritter_to_star_in_marvels_aka_jessica_jones), Krysten Ritter will be portraying Jessica Jones in the upcoming Netflix series.

It's also been clarified that the show's official title is Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, and that it will be premiering sometime in 2015!

Aaand as was previously rumoured, Mike Colter has indeed been cast as Luke Cage for that series. He will also appear in the Jessica Jones series, as co-star to Ritter's Jones.

Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis on what fans can expect from Netflix series (http://www.blastr.com/2015-7-22/jessica-jones-creator-brian-michael-bendis-what-fans-can-expect-netflix-series)

We’re still geeking out over Marvel’s Daredevil, but it sounds like the next Netflix series could be just as good — at least according to the guy who created the hero it’s based on.

Brian Michael Bendis, who created the superhero-turned-private eye Jessica Jones back in 2001, has been keeping close tabs on the TV development process. With a few episodes in the can, Bendis has had the opportunity to check them out and couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

While he doesn’t have a very hands-on role in the series, the comic writer said it’s extremely faithful to the comic canon (much like Daredevil) and is turning out exactly as he’d hoped. It also sounds like Krysten Ritter is a good fit for Jessica, and Bendis couldn’t stop talking about how great Michael Colter looks as Luke Cage. So, good things down the line when his show starts filming (hopefully).

Here’s an excerpt from what Bendis posted on his personal Tumblr:

“The show is so good. I have seen the first couple of episodes and because i didn’t work on it directly i can say this with full no ego fanfare: i loved it!!

and believe me, i was going to be the hardest on it. harder than any of you.

jessica is a part of my DNA. A bad jessica jones show would have hurt me deeply.

BUT it is faithful and lively and everything that I could personally have wanted from the show. the mean streets of marvel netflix from a different perspective than matt’s but at the same time… it all fits. just like the comics on their best day. and just like Netflix DD, the look of the show is cracklin’ noir but with its own palette.

i did not work on the show because I’m working on Powers, and I can’t be everywhere, and also the show was ALWAYS in very very very good hands. I had read the very first drafts of Melissa Rosenberg’s pilot when it was at ABC and i was so flattered by her faithfulness and just getting why we made the book in the first place. i met with the assembled writer’s room and had the surreal experience of finally being in a room where i knew the answers to people’s question.

krysten ritter is soooo good. and michael colter. wait until you see michael colter. the casting of luke cage, in my opinion, and have said this to everyone behind the scenes, is as strong and spot on as the casting of tony stark. its probably the hardest to cast and they got it. perfect."

Jessica Jones is tentatively set to debut on Netflix this fall/winter.

DigiFluid
July 23rd, 2015, 04:04 PM
She's relatively new -- made her debut in 2001.

She's been (at various times) a superhero in her own right, a retired superhero (after a traumatic experience) working as a PI, one of the New Avengers, one of the Mighty Avengers, involved with the original Civil War storyline, and a few others. She's also married to Luke Cage.

Marvel unveils first teaser clip, premiere date for Jessica Jones (http://www.blastr.com/2015-9-10/marvel-unveils-first-teaser-clip-premiere-date-jessica-jones)

We knew we’d see Marvel’s Jessica Jones series by the end of the year, and now we finally know when it’ll drop on Netflix.

Jessica Jones will premiere in full November 20 on the streaming service, with the entire 13-episode season available immediately. The studio will follow the same binge-watching approach that made Daredevil such a cultural phenomenon earlier this year. Along with the premiere date, Netflix also unveiled the first teaser clip for the series. It doesn’t feature any footage, but does give us a fleeting glimpse of Alias Investigations and the streets of New York.

The series will follow Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), who starts up a career as a private detective after a tragic ending cuts her super hero career short. We'll track Jones as she attempts to rebuild her personal life and career, all the while getting pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Again, we don’t get any footage here, but it’s easy to sense how Marvel is positioning this project within the universe pioneered by Daredevil, but with a vibe all its own.

Along with Ritter, Jessica Jones stars David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker, and Matrix alum Carrie-Anne Moss. The series is executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg (Dexter) and Liz Friedman (Elementary), along with Marvel’s TV chief Jeph Loeb (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

I pointed this out in my post on Absorbing Man as well, because he also had no clear origin.

Not counting pure-technology people like Ant-Man and Iron Man, there have been 3 (maybe 4) ways we have seen actual abilities given to humans in canon so far:

1) Super Soldier Serum - though there have been many variations of it with success to limited degrees, this has been what is responsible for the likes of Captain America, Hulk, Abomination, Red Skull, extremis and centipede soldiers. I suppose you could count Cal in here as well.

2) Technology Accident - These exceptional cases often grant unique abilities directly hinged on the accidents that caused them. Marcus Daniels (Darkforce guy), Scorch, Donnie Gill (Blizzard), David Angar (Cal's screaming henchman).

3) Inhumans - While they all develop unique abilities, there are a very uniform set of circumstances as to how they get them. Inhumans have to be able to touch the Diviner and Terrigen Crystals without harm.

4) Strucker's experiments - Although the exact mechanism is never explained, my guess is it could be another way of triggering the Terrigenesis process (which is why it only worked on 2 related subjects). If not, it's only a possible side effect of the infinity gem. Either way, by the events of Age of Ultron, Pietro and Wanda are said to be the only 2 successful, meaning Creel was not one of them.


Magic is coming, but I don't think they would incorporate that into her series. Aside from Aborbing Man, everyone else has been explained. So, who really knows where her powers come from for now?

DigiFluid
October 1st, 2015, 04:37 AM
Also chemicals - Matt Murdock. Not that magic would be a big deal, considering Doctor Strange is on the rapidly-approaching horizon.

Let's wait and see how the series explains it, yeah?

Chemicals enhancing a sense for daredevil is one thing, but giving Jessica has actually powers. No chemical exposure is going to give her flight.

It's a lot more street level than Daredevil. Murdock was fighting a city wide issue and Jessica Jones is doing something much more personal. The Purple man does not concern himself with any master plans beyond his own twisted sadistic desires, unlike Fisk.

November 24th, 2015, 02:16 PM
Even Fisk wasn't doing anything city-wide, he was just working on Hell's Kitchen.

You're right though, Jessica Jones is far more personal story. Jessica's story now, playing out as a result of Jessica's story before.

I like dark thrillers in general. Tortured characters or characters who get the screws to their heads tightened up real tight. I also like the frankness of the series and that this isn't your usual super hero show. Daredevil (which I really liked) was more traditional in that sense. But Jessica Jones was different enough to stand out. And the Character driven story also helps too, much like it did for Daredevil.

November 25th, 2015, 01:10 PM
So its more dark than bloody, I picked up on that tbh in the trailers.

aretood2
November 26th, 2015, 06:59 AM
To be honest, the Sex scenes are no worse than what comes on a Telenovela at 8PM. The only difference is that they lack the "romantic passion" of a soap opera. Candles, slow movements, over dramatic scenery. Honestly, I don't see anything R rated in Jessica Jones. Certainly not PG. Which makes me wonder, how can Univision and Telemundo get away with that stuff?

It's not solidly nailed down. The date of the bus accident was Jan 20 2014, and the firmest dating we get for current events is that that happened 'like a year ago.'

Factoring in:
- the Jan 20 2014 date being approximately a year prior
- the first few episodes of JJ had snow on the ground
- while the later ones featured people outside comfortably in longsleeve shirts
- Josie's Bar in Daredevil had been owned by her since at least 2010
- Luke's bar in JJ is the same bar as Josie's, meaning he has taken over since we last saw it in Daredevil
- certain references in episode 13 referring to Daredevil
- references to the Battle of New York (Avengers 1)
- 0 mentions of Sokovia, or the Sokovia Accords (Avengers 2 / Civil War)

I'm placing JJ season 1 in the late winter/early spring of 2015, closely following or else immediately after Daredevil season 1. Admittedly it's not completely clear, but it's the best I can come up with on the information we have.

One of the 'guides' in my sig is how I've interpreted the timeline of events in the MCU to date. (Hover mouse over many of the cells in the episode title column to see which part of that episode/film it's referring to)

OK now I remember, yeah the date said 2014, I guessed the setting to be early 2015. Probably closer to spring given the weather change. Before Sokovia and Ant-Man and during or before the Inhuman fish pill outbreak. All of that was in my mind but I wasn't sure. And um....did you work alone on your spread sheet?

Yup ;)

It's really not as much work as it looks like. Taking 30s to add a row here or there when a scene happens in a 42 minute episode / 2h movie, mostly it's just fill-in-the-blanks, once the table is in place :)

Basically. I still think both seasons could have been trimmed by three episodes worth of content.

But hey, they are still good. I too like Daredevil more...it really spoiled us on fighting scenes.

Daredevil is a more traditional hero. He has a heart of gold and a conscious the size of the city itself.

I just watched the pilot since I heard it was similar to Daredevil. Which I loved!

And honestly I didn't really like it that much. This show might be just dark for me (especially ending damn). I think it was because Daredevil had more of a mafia feel to it, so most of the people that get beat up deserve it lol. And there is a good balance between that and non-dark scenes, even some comical scenes. Also Matt has and I assume will continue to have a life outside of being Daredevil Jessica sort of just is herself no matter what she is doing.

This episode, I totally got a Veronica Mars feel. Which isn't a bad thing, since I liked that show. The writing was very good, as was the acting. And there was clearly a personal story, that was going to be in your face the whole time. I liked the stuff with Luke, who looked like Mack from Agents of Shield, but maybe that was just me.

I think some of what be influencing my opinion is the fact is that I hate mind control stories. I for some reason can't stand when a character isn't in control of themselves. And obviously that is going to be a recurring theme with this show. Also the whole thing with him controlling people, is almost two real. As a social worker, I have heard horrible stories about human trafficking, which they are betraying here. I do like that it deals with real issues, but sometimes it is good to have an escape from it. Daredevil provide both ;).

I'm not sure if I will continue watching the rest of the show. I know I can't judge it fairly after one episode. But I'm not sure if I'll enjoy watching it.

Daredevil S2 is already done, with it premiering in March. Luke Cage S1 has already been filming for some time (they might even already be done, I'm not sure), and if they follow 2015's scheduling we'll see that in November. With Iron Fist apparently having some difficulties getting started, I bet we see JJ S2 before we even see Iron Fist, much less Defenders.

Plus now there's buzz of a Punisher standalone series as well.

What would be Netflix's capacity? I mean they do have other shows. Does it compare to that of a TV channel or network?

DigiFluid

Netflix keeps pretty mum about a lot of stuff...show productions tend not to be announced until they decide to, budgets are rarely (if ever) discussed openly, and they don't release viewing figures at all.

A quick look at Wikipedia shows they currently have 10 live-action in-house shows in production at various stages (note that this does not count Luke Cage/Iron Fist/Defenders/Punisher). But two of those are half-hour series, and not one of them is more than 13 episodes per season (most are 10, a few 13, a handful 8).

We should also probably take note that Netflix has recently declined to renew (pay for) a couple of film studios' rights, because they wanted to put more funding into producing original series.

How does that stack up against the big networks? Well, figure that they (the big networks) probably have original programming on 3-5 nights a week, probably between 1 and 2 hour-long series, which will air 20-odd episodes each. And then they also do summer programming, which tends to be reality TV. With that weak math, it looks like Netflix is probably still putting out a lot less content than the big networks.

But at a glance, it looks like they're growing fast and planning to continue to grow.

Looks like it, unfortunately. They've already announced that 2017's releases will be Iron Fist, Defenders, and Punisher. That's already one more Marvel show than they usually do in a year, so I'd be pretty surprised if they made it up to four in one year. Pleasantly, but surprised just the same.

I liked it, but not as much as season 1. A lot of reviewers seemed to be lamenting David Tennant’s absence, but I think they’re missing the mark there. Rather,

(spoilers for all of season 2)
I think the season was significantly dragged down because the actress playing Jessica’s mother was about as compelling as drying paint. Given how pivotal the character was to the season’s storyline, this was a critical casting misfire that made the whole season less.

I also think it was a mistake to just kill off Simpson like that. I understand that the idea, narratively, was to show that the stakes had been raised. But from where I was sitting, it felt like just a huge opportunity to squander.

One of the really bright spots of the season for me was having Callum Keith Rennie in it for a number of episodes. I buy that guy in every role he plays, and here my only wish is that they’d had him on the show for a bit longer.

I absolutely adored Malcolm in this season, and Jeri’s story was beautifully written and acted—just heartbreaking.

Oh, and I can’t wait to see what they do with Hellcat (if it gets a third season).

I agree with you on pretty much everything.

I got kinda fed up with the mum storyline. Must admit Im one of the people lamenting Kilgraves absence, apart from his fun cameo. Made me realise how good a villain he was.

Also got a bit fed up with Trish, hope shes less annoying in season 3

I enjoyed the series as a whole though.

I was focused more on Jessica as I watched, and for that I really liked it because I really like her as a character. I found it to be pretty good season. It did miss a focused villain or a season spanding goal to tie everything together. That's the only thing I would say that the first season did better. I really liked the part where Jessica and her mom are on the ferris wheel...and I really hated Trish towards the end. I can certainly see now why they grew apart so much. Both Jessica and Trish are a lot like their mothers, but also different. I liked how that played out too. I can see that this was a lot more character focused as opposed to an overarching plot.

Finally finished it last night so can click the spoilers now, very much agree with all the above, the second series was very different to the first, but still good just a different way.

Took me quiet a while to figure out who the killer was, which for me is good because I hate being able to work out the plot episodes in advance, although I didn't see Trish's contribution at all and she's become very unlike able as this series went on.

My thoughts on season 2

I preferred the first season to the second season. I didn't dislike it, I love Jessica as a character, but I didn't really care much for the whole Jessica's mom thing and the season pretty much revolved around that. I guess I missed Killgrave mainly because I found him way more interesting than Jessica's mom and her whole story (if I had liked Alisa better I probably wouldn't have missed Killgrave as much).

I also felt like they killed Simpson off way too early, it really did seem like a waste of the character, since he barely did anything. He was basically just used so that Trish could get that inhaler and further her "I wanna be a superhero too" storyline.

Trish grew to be beyond annoying during this season. I hate that she got powers at the end because it just felt like she got rewarded for being an entitled, jealous user. If the show gets another season, I hope there's a serious downside to her powers or that she ends up villain or something, because I can't stand her right now.
