Marvel has revealed precious little of its Netflix Iron Fist to date, casting under lock and key with showrunner Scott Buck. That said, we may have a clue toward the writing staff (as well as its implications for Jessica Jones), as producer Scott Reynolds may have spilled the beans on his involvement.
It would take an encyclopedia to map out the many changes to comic canon the Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken thus far, and Jessica Jones was no exception, especially in its central antagonist. Now, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg explains one of the major changes to the comic relationship between Jessica Jones and Kilgrave, in order to make it “more visceral.”
The most recent news of Marvel’s Netflix Defenders unfortunately raised more questions than answers, confirming an eventual second season of Jessica Jones, but without word of when it might premiere, or when to expect Luke Cage later this year. Now, a new tweet has many eyeing Luke Cage for November, but not for the right reasons.
Sanford Greene's art is just uncommonly charming, right? That was my first thought when the earliest images were released from the upcoming Power Man and Iron Fist, and seeing this preview has only strengthened that opinion. The new ongoing series, featuring Greene and writer David Walker, will be in stores on February 17th.
As much as Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple has been confirmed as a go-between for Netflix’s Defenders, the superhero nurse’s Jessica Jones role proved far-less significant than Daredevil prior. We’ve seen Rosario shooting Luke Cage already, but star Mike Colter confirms Claire Temple will have a much more significant role this time around.
Our long national nightmare abated this morning with news that Jessica Jones would indeed return for a Netflix Season 2, though given the prolonged announcement, it remained unclear if we could expect Krysten Ritter’s continuing misadventures in 2016. Now, a new report seemingly confirms that Jessica Season 2 would take a backseat to Netflix teamup The Defenders, perhaps premiering in 2017 or later.
Netflix and Marvel delivered one hell of a perfect story with Jessica Jones’ debut season, exploring trauma, consent, rape culture and empowerment via a narrative in which Krysten Ritter’s eponymous hero faces her past demons in the form of David Tennant’s sleazy super-villain Kilgrave. As many fans have pointed out, Season 1 is such a contained, perfect story that many felt they’d be satisfied if Netflix didn’t renew the series. But with the company officially announcing Season 2, we can’t help but wonder where that might take our hero next. We have a few ideas.
Now that Marvel's Netflix Jessica Jones has thoroughly kicked all our asses up and down Hell's Kitchen, we had to wonder when the second Defender might earn her Season 2 renewal. Scheduling questions gave at least some pause before, but Marvel confirms Jessica Jones will indeed return for Season 2.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics were definitely on display this weekend at Wizard World New Orleans, and we were there to check out the show, and capture some of the stellar cosplay on display.
As much as Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones made it clear from the get-go the series wasn’t interested in a traditional costumed superhero approach, Jessica formed a memorable style all her own, with few deviations throughout the 13 episodes. Now, costume designer Stephanie Maslansky explains the process of Jessica Jones’ look, as well if the character actually owned more than one outfit.
