AKA Jessica Jones

Oh My Stars and Garters

Marvel Teams With Netflix For Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist Original Series Leading To Team Mini-Series

Were you one of those people who cancelled their Netflix subscription after they tried that whole Qwikster thing? You might want to think about getting back on that train by 2015. That’s when Marvel Entertainment will premiere their first original content on the service – four solo-character series to be following by a mini-series titled, The Defenders.

Rosenberg Says A.K.A. Jessica Jones Show Still Possible, Let me Hoist My Hopes High Once Again

Welcome to this post. Please enjoy this panel of Jessica Jones clocking Doctor Doom with a fire hydrant that she presumably just pulled out of the sidewalk. We’re here to talk about the potential series AKA Jessica Jones that’s currently somewhere in pre-production television land. There’s lots of reasons why it should become a show, and apparently Marvel Entertainment hasn’t quite given up on it yet.

Oh Really?

ABC Is Still Planning a Hulk TV Series, But Has The Avengers Raised the Bar? (Answer: Yes)

Now that Marvel has earned all of the world’s money with The Avengers — having already passed the billion-dollar mark — ABC is going to try to hop on this gravy train and continue to develop a TV series for the character with director Guillermo Del Toro. This is not an entirely bad idea, considering The Incredible Hulk enjoyed a four-season run on CBS from 1978 to 1982. So, we know this can work on TV. But after The Avengers, do we really want to see someone besides Mark Ruffalo play Bruce Banner and his rowdy green counterpart? And even if we did, can they even top the latest big-screen version of the Hulk?

Twilight Made Melissa Rosenberg the Highest-Grossing Female Screenwriter of All Time

Melissa Rosenberg has beaten screenwriter Linda Woolverton for the title of highest-grossing woman screenwriter of all time. While Woolverton’s credits include Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Homeward Bound, Rosenberg has likely edged out her competition with her one film series: Twilight. But it’s not just Twilight, although that’s got the lion’s share of the credit ($2.56 billion worth of credit, according to The Hollywood Reporter). Rosenberg also has significant TV credits under her belt.

Good News Everyone!

AKA Jessica Jones TV Show Will Be Set In The Overall Marvel Universe

With Marvel lacking a bit when it comes to their female characters lately (they’ve just cancelled their last two female solo titles), it’s nice to see that not only are one of their heroines getting her own TV show but it won’t ignore the rest of the Marvel Universe and pretend to be about something else. AKA Jessica Jones is the show and writer Melissa Rosenberg (the Twilight films) spoke recently about which Marvel characters she hopes to utilize in the series.

Plenty of Room for Luke Cage in AKA Jessica Jones

Among the numerous television projects that Marvel has in some stage of the “getting done” process, there is AKA Jessica Jones, a series about the eponymous superheroine-turned-private detective from the comics series Alias. (No relation to the television show of the same name, in case you were confused.) Melissa Rosenberg has been tapped to adapt the concept, and she’s no stranger to either adaptation or genre work. Her writing credits include Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, The O.C., Dexter, a few Twilight movies and even the infamous Birds of Prey television adaptation.

Jessica Jones is an awesome character in and of herself, but her role in the Marvel Universe also includes a feisty relationship with Luke Cage, AKA Power Man, that eventually leads to love, parenthood, and marriage, in that order. As supporters of greater diversity in the comics world and in the parts of the comics world that get translated into other media, we’d be remiss if we didn’t tell everybody excitedly that Rosenberg has confirmed that Luke Cage is definitely included in her vision for the series.
