The first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones absolutely demanded women’s perspective behind the camera, and Season 2 is very much upping the ante. Before production commences on a second run of Krysten Ritter’s breakout Defender, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg confirms all thirteen Jessica Jones Season 2 episodes will feature women directing.
Marvel’s Luke Cage has officially struck out in his own series, but that hasn’t stopped Jessica Jones fans from wondering if Mike Colter’s Hero for Hire will end up hired back to Hell’s Kitchen. Luke and Jessica will at least reunite for The Defenders, while showrunner Melissa Rosenberg teases if Luke might have any role to play in Jessica Jones Season 2.
Even with Luke Cage just over a week away, fans are anxious to pick up the world left behind by Marvel’s Jessica Jones. We’ll see the character again in The Defenders, but it seems Season 2 is at least halfway complete in the writers’ room, while showrunner Melissa Rosenberg teases Jessica’s enduring trauma beyond Kilgrave.
Jessica Jones Season 2 details have been hard to come by, what with Season 1 plumbing the comic character’s most recognizable stories, and Marvel slotting Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders in between. Now, Jessica Jones boss Melissa Rosenberg offers a bit of new intel, including multiple villains to follow Kilgrave, and an evolving dynamic with Trish.
Jessica Jones has been understandably quiet since Marvel confirmed news of a second Netflix season, with production unlikely to begin before team-up mini-series The Defenders. Marvel too hasn’t exactly proven forthcoming, but a new executive producer joining Jessica Jones’ ranks for Season 2 could well get the ball rolling.
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.”
We’re still basking in the glow of Marvel’s Jessica Jones this weekend, wondering if Netflix’s super-heroine will follow Daredevil‘s lead with a Season 2 renewal, but there may be a complication. According to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, Netflix’s big Defenders teamup might take precedence over a second run on Jessica Jones.
As Marvel fans the world over take in Netflix’s Jessica Jones this weekend, newfound fans of Jessica’s best friend Patsy “Trish” Walker (Rachael Taylor) may be surprised to learn that the series almost featured Carol Danvers instead, better known as our future Captain Marvel.
Anticipation for Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones will reach a fever pitch in the next few days, but once upon a time, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg nearly got the series off-ground at ABC, before Marvel ever started planning Netflix Defenders. So, what might have been different, and where might the Netflix Jessica Jones go in Season 2?
Following up on the news that Cabin in the Woods co-writer and director Drew Goddard will be the showrunner for Marvel's Daredevil series coming to Netflix, Deadline reports that Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter of all five of the Twilight films, will be in charge of the Marvel/Netflix Jessica Jones series.
Rosenberg was attached to the series in its original incarnation on ABC, which never came to fruition. She has other experience in comics-based TV, though, having written several episodes of The WB's Birds of Prey series.
