The Netflix original series takes place in the same universe as the excellently done Daredevil series which launched in April. Jessica Jones is the second of four epic live-action adventure series with Marvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron Fist still to come then followed by the teaming of all the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders.
4.The Adult Story
The life of Jessica Jones is a edgy look into what cold be called an failed attempt of a women who wanted to be a hero. The realistic take on what its like when your heroic career goes bad is a fresh take on the now regular telling of the hero story.
Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) is joined by a cast including David Tennant (Kilgrave)who s the man villan like Kingpin was in the Daredevil series. Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval, are just some of the cast that will be playing key roles in this series as well as future series in the coming soon.
The addition of Luke cage as a major character is a great direction for this cinematic universe. The possibility of seeing multiple crossovers including Daredevil possibly Iron Fist and a who’s who of villains has me on the edge of my seat waiting for these special appearances and hidden Easter eggs.
As Jessica deals with the tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint over 13 one-hour episodes, the audience can watch as many episodes that you can handle. The ability to watch the whole season in one day f you choose to is why these marvel originals series are such a joy. I’ve been able to binge watch Daredevil which was so much fun i did it twice with someone that hd not seen it yet. The Netflix formats has also cause me to do the same with their non marvel shows like the incredibly detailed drug series Narcos.
Getting everything at once will give me the pleasure of immersing my self in NYC ‘s Hell Kitchen as Jessica Jones rebuilds her personal life and career as a detective with an dark past and enhanced abilities.
