‘Jessica Jones’ Boss Says Netflix Marvel Show Will Be “Wildly Different” From ‘Daredevil’.

Back in April, Marvel’s Daredevil was pretty much unanimously praised for its grittiness, realism and long-drawn, engaging and excellent storytelling.If you were excited when Krysten Ritter was cast as Jessica Jones in Netflix’s upcoming Jessica Jones series, then I’ve got some very good news for you. Tonally, they’re very different,” Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said at the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday.”They’re wildly different.” Outgoing Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight heaped praise on the upcoming series, which stars Krysten Ritter as the title character, former superhero suffering from PTSD who opens her own detective agency.

Don’t worry, if what Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos said at TCA is true, pretty soon we’ll be guaranteed two Marvel series a year. “I think ideally there will be a rhythm of about every six months you’ll get a new season or a new series from the Defenders group. Mike Colter also stars as Marvel figure Luke Cage, who will eventually get his own Marvel series on Netflix. “Everything I’ve seen and heard about Jessica Jones is fantastic,” said DeKnight, who also praised the comic book series upon which the series is based – written by Brian Michael Bendis. “He created this incredibly flawed, damaged, interesting character. The drama follows the exploits of superhero-turned-private investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), who works on cases involving people with extraordinary abilities. Marvel and Netflix teamed up to bring five separate shows to the streaming service, focusing on a group of comic book heroes called The Defenders, a street-level Avengers team.

Pulling inspiration from Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias run, Rosenberg described Jones as an “incredibly flawed, damaged and interesting character regardless of gender.” Noting that Bendis wasn’t afraid to “go there” with the character’s imperfections, Rosenberg says the show will go “ever further in all our storytelling.” “That’s the beauty of working with Netflix,” she continued. “It’s 13 [episodes]. They’re not the most famous of heroes (aside from ol’ devil horns) but they’re interesting in their own right, and that particular female-led show is coming this year. Luke Cage is then scheduled to begin production in early 2016, around the same time that Jessica Jones did in 2015, which means we’ll get that series around fourth quarter of 2016.

Although the release is still months away, it’ll likely be premiere time sooner than we all think — so it’s worth brushing up on everything to know about the series before that time arrives. There is no edge.” Ahead of the show’s late 2015 release, Rosenberg has already received very important feedback from Bendis himself, which she said was very complimentary. Jessica Jones will be the next superhero to get a Netflix treatment before the end of 2015, followed by Iron Fist and Luke Cage, according to the Associated Press.

Recently, Birth Movies Death wrote a little about how the folks behind the Marvel Netflix series aren’t very far along on Iron Fist yet, despite a number of subtle references peppered throughout Daredevil. TV audiences saw — and in many cases applauded — her character choke slowly to death on her own vomit after an overdose on Breaking Bad and her most recent series called her a “b—-” in its title. The announcement comes as anticipation for Jessica Jones, the first female superhero to headline her own Marvel project, grows. “I’ve been coming to Comic-Con for 12 years, and I think a lot of fans here have been eager to see more women onscreen for a long time,” Dawn Keiser, a 30-year-old Californian told TIME at San Diego Comic-Con in early July. “I was really happy to see the characters Karen and Claire become these heroes on Daredevil, but I really can’t wait for Jessica Jones to be the hero of her own show.” Krysten Ritter, star of Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, will portray the first major female character with superpowers in a Marvel Studios project.

Though Captain America character Peggy Carter stars in a 1940s-set Agent Carter on ABC, she has no powers—nor does Black Widow, the only female Avenger in the films. It’s an excellent platform because there really are no restrictions whatsoever in terms of content and that fits these heroes perfectly – as we learned on Daredevil, with Wilson Fisk smashing a Russian mobster’s head in with a car door four episodes in. And the answer is no.” But the contrasts don’t stop with tone. “My show’s called Jessica Jones,” Rosenberg said, noting that Cox may get a break during stunts. “There is no mask.

If the tone of Daredevil is any indication, Jessica Jones and the other Marvel Netflix shows will be much darker and bloodier than the one audiences know from films like Iron Man and The Avengers. Season 2 is actually already shooting and will be out next year alongside Luke Cage but this would seem to hint that other shows will get further seasons. It’s a little scary at times, but I also think it’s the most freeing experience I’ve ever had.” “We’re using some pretty obscure characters, so we’re taking them all over the place,” Rosenberg said. “We have to be cognizant of the mythology and the world.”

Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) — who worked closely with DeKnight and creator Drew Goddard in the first season — will both serve as the new showrunners. “They were there from the inception,” DeKnight said. “I’ve told them anything I can do, anything you need from me, you can call, I’m always there. I imagine the main reason Murdock’s getting one is because of how much of a massive hit the show was so it may not have been immediately planned, in which case plans could still change and may end up including even more TV shows.

It’s very important for me exiting to leave the show to them… It sounds like everything is going wonderfully and I personally can’t wait to watch season 2 with the rest of you.” The exec said that there is a definite chance that characters such as Jon Bernthal’s Punisher could end up getting their own series at some point(!!!!). 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. […] 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. [SIC]

I don’t know, but if I’m afraid of it I’m doing the right thing.” It stars Kristen Ritter in the lead role, who you might remember as Jesse’s drug-addict girlfriend Jane from season 2 of Breaking Bad. Ritter certainly sounds like she’s doing a bang-up job. “The one thing where Steven [DeKnight] has the advantage, his show was called Daredevil but Daredevil has an outfit.

The answer was, ‘No, we’re hiring you for your point of view.’” Head on over to /Film for some more info from Rosenberg on the show, including some comments from Steven DeKnight and an intriguing little hint on the character of Night Nurse played by Rosiaro Dawson. It’s great that this next show will continue the dark tone of Marvel on Netflix because these characters deserve proper adaptation, but it will certainly be interesting when (as it’s not really a matter of “if”) they show up in the movies how they’re gonna be adapted. I’m sure some liberties will be taken but Marvel will need to find a way to keep the core of the characters intact whilst ensuring that they’re suitable for PG movies.
