Jessica Jones

  1. Melissa Rosenberg, Drew Goddard Named as Writers on Daredevil, Jessica Jones Shows

    Excelsior!

    Marvel is moving much more quickly on its putative Netflix series than it has on some other TV projects in its history, and has already named writers for two of them, Drew Goddard on Daredevil and Melissa Rosenberg on Jessica Jones. Rosenberg's involvement is particularly exciting as she was involved in a previous effort at getting a Jessica Jones series (pictured above, clocking Doctor Doom with a fire hydrant) to screen, one that sounded like it was shaping up pretty well. (Also, Carol Danvers was in it.)

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

    Oh My Stars and Garters

    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.

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

    Excelsior!

    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.

  4. Momtagonists: 7 Moms Who Get to Be The Hero

    Power Grid

    It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, and while we’ve covered horrible moms and great moms, we thought we’d spend this week talking about moms who get to be the heroes. This list focuses on mothers who are also leading protagonists, not just supporting characters to others with bigger roles. Geekdom is full of secondary parental figures, usually there to advise, get killed for dramatic effect, or to rebel against. These moms, however, are front and center and waving their mom flags high, and even if they might not be the only protagonist in their story, their character development is just as much a part of the whole as the other characters.

  5. Avengers to Officially Reassemble, Surprising No One; Marvel Stuff in Disney Parks is Go

    Excelsior!

    Look. We live in a day and age where sequels are greenlit before their preceding films have even hit theaters, and whether or not a movie is critically acclaimed doesn't necessarily have anything to say about whether it gets a follow up (see persistant rumblings of a Tron 3). So, yeah, nobody should really be surprised that a movie that has made $702 million dollars globally by the end of its first opening weekend in America, a movie whose merchandise Disney itself is reportedly having difficulty keeping in stock, a movie that set up for its own sequel in its post credits sequence, a movie that studio executives were saying was getting a sequel last October... is getting a sequel. It is.

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

    Good News Everyone!

    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.

  7. Plenty of Room for Luke Cage in AKA Jessica Jones

    Excelsior!

    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.
