Marvel’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ Officially Drops the ‘AKA’
Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones series added a bit of distinction in titling itself AKA Jessica Jones alongside the addition of Krysten Ritter, but unlike Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel has decided to let simplicity prevail. Periods be damned, the second Defenders series will henceforth be known as Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
Several noticed the change when searching for the series’ placeholder page over Netflix interfaces (confirmed with our own screenshot below), paring down the title to a cleaner Marvel’s Jessica Jones. No explicit reason was given for the change, though ComicBook.com reportedly confirmed the new title’s legitimacy with Marvel.
In other words, Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones, AKA Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Simple enough?
So reads Marvel’s
AKA Jessica Jones official synopsis:
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica 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.
In addition to Krysten Ritter in the title role, Marvel’s Jessica Jones also features among its cast Mike Colter as fellow future Defender Luke Cage, Doctor Who favorite David Tennant as the villainous Zebediah Kilgrave, Carrie-Anne Moss as “Harper” and Transformers star Rachael Taylor as Patsy “Hellcat” Walker. Run creatively by Melissa Rosenberg, the series also features in recurring roles Eka Darville as Jessica’s neighbor, Erin Moriarty as a client, and Wil Traval as a police officer.
AKA or no, Marvel’s Jessica Jones remains on track for a later 2015 premiere, which recent rumors suggest may involve a number of Daredevil cameos. Was Marvel right to simplify the title, or did the AKA add a bit of flair in sync with the comics?
