    Default Jessica Jones (Netflix) - News/Discussion/Speculation

    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, 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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.).

    Well, we've got inhumans popping up with powers now, but it seems like she's had hers for a while. Think she's a pre-fish pill Inhuman or something else entirely?

    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?

    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.
