It's been awhile since we've heard anything regarding Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, ever since the official synopsis was released back in early May. Today Marvel has released the official logo for the Netflix series, which confirms that the title has been shortened to Marvel's Jessica Jones. The series is set to debut on Netflix later this year, but an official release date has not been given at this time.
Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check. We have already seen a number of photos from the set, but we have yet to see any official photos featuring the cast.
Krysten Ritter stars as the title character in this Netflix series, the second of four planned superhero shows including Marvel's Daredevil, which is currently streaming, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist. The supporting cast includes David Tennant as Kilgrave, Rachael Taylor as Patsy Walker, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper, Eka Darville as Malcolm, Erin Moriarty as Hope, and Wil Traval as a NYPD cop.
Melissa Rosenberg serves as executive producer and showrunner of the series. After Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist all debut on Netflix, these characters will come together to form The Defenders for a miniseries on the streaming service. Both Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist are expected to debut at some point in 2016, with The Defenders most likely premiering in 2017.
The release of this logo could mean that Marvel and Netflix are getting ready to debut the first photos and/or trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones, and perhaps announce the premiere date. What do you think of this new logo? Are you glad they took the "A.K.A.' off of the title? Check out the image below, and stay tuned for more on Marvel's Jessica Jones.
