Jessica Jones tv series

http://insidetv.ew.com/2010/12/17/me...jessica-jones/

Quote:
Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is planning to bring Marvel superhero, Jessica Jones, to television, according to Variety. AKA Jessica Jones is being considered for ABC’s slate next fall, and Brian Michael Bendis, who created the comic-book series in 2001 (it was originally titled, Alias), will be a consultant for the show.
The scary part about this article..... TWILIGHT screenwriter...They should just make a Heroes for Hire tv series.

I think the bigger problem is that Bendis is working on it.

AKA Jessica Jones? Really? That sounds horrible. I liked it better when they were calling it Alter Ego. This is too bad. Give Alias to a good showrunner, throw it on a network like FX (where Bendis' other work, Powers is getting a show), and it could be great. Alias would lend itself great to a gritty noir show. Oh well.

Krysten Ritter has officially been cast as Jessica Jones who apparantly also goes by the name of Julia.

I like Ritter but out of the finalists I was really hoping Dadarrio got the part.

Ahh, I remember her from Breaking Bad. She was good in the show, let's hope she's good in JJ.

Jones always seemed a bit more...solid, physically, than Ritter is. She's kind of waify and willowy.

I've got to give the Twilight screenwriter some credit, they took some really horrid source material and did something with it. That's way better than a lot of past comic movies and book adaptations have gotten.

I am only watching this show cause David Tennant is a villain and he is one of my favorite actors. Other than that I don't know jack about J Jones

The comic is well worth the read, though warning: It's from the darker/edgier Marvel Universe intended for mature audiences. So...read at your own risk.

Finally got a chance to watch that teaser, and holy hell, I really love Marvel's dark edgy TV. This looks right up my alley, just like Daredevil. Can't WAIT.

Also, about time we got an edgy badass protagonist who was a woman. Maybe Marvel will beat Wonder Woman to the punch after all...

Out of the 4 Marvel Netflix series announced this was the one I was most excited about. I know what I'll be doing over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Before Daredevil, I didn't trust them to pull this off. But if Marvel can create a serious morally-conflicted shades-of-gray real-world comic-book-story once (Daredevil), then why not again?

Very excited for this. Hopefully, I'll have that weekend off, and binge like a mofo. If it's half as good at the book, I won't be able to stop.

Read the five-issue Purple Man confrontation, couldn't get into any of the other "Alias" storyarcs... I think Jessica Jones is awesome, though, and can't wait to see this translated to screen.
