Melissa Rosenberg to Write Marvel Studios' Jessica Jones

by SuperHeroHype

November 12, 2013

Following the news this morning of Drew Goddard boarding Marvel Studios' "Daredevil" Netflix series comes word, via Deadline, that Twilight scribe Melissa Rosenberg will be handling writing duties on "Jessica Jones". She was actually attached to an earlier iteration of the project back in 2010.

The Jones character made her first appearance in 2001's Marvel MAX title "Alias". Retroactively a former Avenger, Jones left the superhero life behind to run Alias Private Investigations. Although "Alias" ended after just 28 issues, Jones has since become a major character in the Marvel Universe.

"Jessica Jones" joins "Daredevil," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist" as one of four series that will build to a crossover miniseries, "The Defenders". Each is designed to take Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and the culminating mini-series event that re-imagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Rosenberg will serve as both writer and executive producer on "Jessica Jones," which is expected to be the second show to premiere, following "Daredevil".

This could be an interesting series IF they follow the original Alias format of a Mature (a la R-rated) comic. Jessica has been neutered quite a bit once she entered the mainstream Marvel Universe.

Now she's practically genetic love interest in distress. :?

One of the things I really enjoyed in the original series was when they'd use Bagley art to represent the more innocent "Jewel" persona in flashbacks only to switch back to the grim and gritty artwork for Jessica's present circumstances.

Here's hoping!

Well that seems right up the "Twilight" scribes alley..

Dont seeing this get the fanboy support-- just from the writer alone-- unless they are going to play down the Marvel ties- and market this to Tweens or Women.

Krysten Ritter Cast as Marvel’s Jessica Jones!

SuperHeroHype

Two weeks ago we learned about the actresses testing for the role of Jessica Jones in Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series and today Deadline brings word that “Breaking Bad” and “Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23″ actress Krysten Ritter has been cast in the role! The outlet also reveals that Halo: Nightfall‘s Mike Colter is the top choice for the role of her husband, Luke Cage, who will appear in seven of the planned thirteen “Jessica Jones” episodes.

“Dexter” and Twilight scribe Melissa Rosenberg is set to executive produce the “Jessica Jones” series, which focuses on retired superhero Jessica Jones hanging up her tights and opening her own detective agency. Rosenberg is no stranger to female superhero shows either, having worked on the short-lived “Birds of Prey” series on The WB.

“Jessica Jones” is the second of five Netflix shows Marvel will roll out starting next year with “Marvel’s Daredevil.” Following the two will be both “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist,” with all four leading into a “Defenders” mini-series.

Colter is a great pick for Luke Cage. Don't know about Ritter because I've never seen a single Jessica Jones project or comic but Colter will be great.
