Small News on Marvel’s Jessica Jones

Since Netflix announced the several shows that they would be producing with Marvel, the one I’ve been more interested in has been “Marvel’s Jessica Jones“. Not only will it feature a female superheroes, but Krysten Ritter (who is one of my favorite actresses) plays the main character, and also David Tennant (one of my favorite actors) plays the villain.

The logo for the show was finally released yesterday, and the show is set to premiere later this year. It will be set within the same small universe of Daredevil (inside the major MCU), and Rosario Dawson is even set to drop by as Claire, first introduced in Daredevil.

David Tennant is coming to MARVEL!

On Netflix at least! David was casted was the villain Killgrave (Purple Man) on the upcoming Netflix show Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones, opposite the marvelous Krysten Ritter.

Krysten Ritter is Jessica Jones

Krysten Ritter is the latest addition to the MARVEL (TV) family. She is the new Jessica Jones on the Netflix and Marvel production Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones. The show will air on Netflix sometime in 2015, following Marvel’s Daredevil, which already has its lead as well.

After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

“Krysten brings both the hard edge and the vulnerability the role demands,” said Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg. “We can’t wait for fans to see her in action, coming to Netflix in 2015.”

“Krysten Ritter has the type of range, spanning the comic to the tragic, that makes for the stuff of the best Marvel heroes,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television. “As Jessica Jones, Krysten will bring one of the most beloved new characters of the past decade to life in a way we know will delight her longtime fans and introduce her to many more.”

Ritter is one of my favorites TV actresses, so I can’t express enough how glad I am that she’s entering the Marvel Universe.
