>Netflix has put “Jessica Jones” back on the case, announcing that it has given a second season of 13 episodes to the series starring Krysten Ritter as a private detective with superhuman abilities.
>The long-awaited renewal is not much of a surprise. “Jessica Jones” premiered in November to strong reviews, with Variety’s Maureen Ryan heralding it as “not just a contender for the title of best Marvel-related TV property [but] one of the year’s most distinctive new dramas.”
>“All the conversations I wanted to be happening around it are happening,” executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg told Variety after the show’s release. “There are just these wildly articulate insightful pieces being done about a feminist perspective, a political perspective, at a time where these subjects are getting some attention about women in Hollywood and women in the world, and how we’re portrayed in the media. It’s my life goal to contribute something to the world that hopefully moves it in a positive direction.”
No word on when.
So...what are they going to do? They spent 90% of the first season chasing Purple Man and talking about Purple Man that I can't see much traction for season 2. I know, evil company who created Nuke, but I doubt anyone is interested in another evil agency.
Also, I expect more shock deaths that don't affect the characters in the show.
they can use the stories they didn't use in season one. Mattie, the m(I)gh, stuff like that.
possibly making the igh user or dealer the main villain of the series if they want to use a similar structure as S1
kek just yesterday some sperglord trying hard to vaguely drop hints about having inside info talked all this shit about how S2 would never happen for JJ because Marvel was worried about the triggered /pol/tards demographic.
It was OK but not spectacular. Really didn't like how they had to repeatedly come up with contrivances to keep the plot going. Goes to show you can't really run a whole series with only one story arc.
>I'm not saying it didn't do well. I'm simply telling you what the next phase is. Marvel doesn't think viewers will tune in for a S2 of JJ because a lot of the acclaim is for Killgrave and she doesn't have any other villains really. They aren't looking to push her for a S2. They want her and Hellcat in the second season of Defenders though and there has been talk for an all female Heroes for Hire show. Believe me or don't, it doesn't really matter to me.
Which is why I'm skeptical for another season. Hell, which villains will Luke Cage's show even have? At what point does the MCU run out of villains because of all these shows? Will we start getting White Rabbit and Ruby Tuesday?
Then just use characters no one cares about and make them care. That's how Mr. Freeze became popular. All it takes is one good story, you don't need a name everyone is familiar with.
Oh, I know they will use minor villains. Just saying, at the rate they are going, they probably will use up every Marvel villain unless they start doing more Darren Crosses one issue villains.
>I'm surprised we don't start getting minor Spider-Man villains in things
I'm not. They want those characters to be available for Spidey movies, and if they introduced them in a Netflix series they might have to acknowledge their TV shows in the films in some way. Can't have that.
>I don't understand the praise it gets.
Because it's all character and no real plot, which is pretty fucking daring for cape adaptations. It was a languid noir that took its time telling a slow, personal story. That really doesn't happen in cape movies/TV in an environment where fans decry anything that isn't actively pushing a plot forward as filler or soap opera bullshit.
It's proof that you can actually tell extremely different kinds of stories with cape characters without having to please the entire nerd fanbase.
We live in a world where fucking Jessica Jones got a series before Wonder Woman.
I meant since the previous Live Action Superhero boom, otherwise the Supergirl film would count
>"There certainly is storytelling wise. The question becomes is there actual time? There are logistics involved, because Defenders has to shoot by a certain time, contractually," she said. " Will it be before The Defenders or after? I'd certainly love it to be before but there are things that play into that — time, availability."
So this is going to be after the Defenders.
I expected a little more reference to DD in season one besides just having the nurse show up and nothing else, unless this takes place in a different time frame.
Kilgrave was an incredibly thrilling and suspenseful villain and season two will need more of that to keep interest. Despite the fact that she has superpowers, she still felt helpless through half the season and that's what made it interesting. She couldn't just punch her villain to death, she actually how to out think him and use his hubris against him. I think that's why most people enjoyed the first season, from a dramatic standpoint. Season two will need this.
Must be at least a few months afterward. I'm noticing less and less construction occurring in the background of Marvel properties, meaning that you can get a vaguely incremental picture of the rebuilding process of New York.
I reckon this show is also our first real taste of Marvel civilians going Full Marvel Civilian. It's the kind of full retard that comes with a healthy dose of violence and fear.
Jessica Jones has Daredevil's 2 villains and 1 recurring character from show. If she'll keep pushing it Matt should sue.
Not to mention how she took Luke from Danny and genderbent Hogarth.
She goes after IGH to find out about why she has powers. Some of IGH's experimental substances have leaked out and are used as recreational superdrugs that go for high prices with dealers, which Jessica ends up involved in. Jessica finds out at some point that she, was tested on by IGH and goes looking for anyone who can help her learn more. She finds out about more IGH scientists, among whom Herbert Wyndham and Jonathan Drew. She goes to find them, but instead finds the daughter of one of these scientists, also called Jessica who they also experimented on when she was dying, just like was done to herself, Killgrave, etc. This other Jessica doesn't know about her father and is also looking for answers, so she decides to help. Also, at some point IGH releases Nuke or he goes rogue and causes a lot of damage and goes after Jessica and Trish.
>mfw Bernthal Punisher encounters Nuke
>50 Minutes of Bernthal Rubbing his head and chasing Nuke across NYC
>"M'ask you somethin' Army Boy."
honestly I haven't skipped a single marvel thing since the universe was established, but I might skip season 2 of this
I just don't think I can sit through another 13 hours of fucking nothing
So? So is Molly Hayes, who we know they can use. As were Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch at the time of making AoU. Hell, even Thanos is technically a mutant. Being a mutant doesn't mean they are at FOX. Being related to X-titles does, which is not the case for Mary.
Everyone I've talked to hated the series. This is grossly political. Instead of wasting their cash they could be funding deserving comic material. Why scrape the bottom of the barrel when there's still gold?
Not him, but my biggest issue was Purple Man. He was overused, he should have been a force at the beginning and end of the season, with repercussions felt throughout, not the in your face all the time villain.
He had no lofty ambitions, his one goal was to live through life comfortably without being bothered. He doesn't work as a main villain in that regard, the whole game of catch and release in the latter half of the season was stupid.
Shes too similar to Batwoman! Disney would NEVER create massive hype for a comic character simply by having them look like a major DC hero... unless they're a bassmouth pickaninny of course
Anyone else think Persuasion would be interesting in season 2?
Girl shows up, speaks as little as possible, turns out she's Kilgraves teenage daughter trying to figure out what kind of person she is.
It should be after Defenders. I think Jessica could really benefit from the character development she will (hopefully) get in the Defenders series. Plus, they can fold Cage into the show and make it Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, thus freeing up a spot for another show.
She doesn't exist anymore. The aborted fetus that was Kilgrave's daughter was used to amplify his powers. How would she be able to show up when she was an undeveloped fetus that was cannibalized by her father?
You literally said:
>Instead of wasting their cash they could be funding deserving comic material.
They're not wasting their cash, they're developing another season of a critically acclaimed and popular show. So what if you and your friends don't like it? That doesn't mean it's a bad business decision, and it CERTAINLY doesn't mean your opinion reflects any sort of majority.
That's not to say that you can't hope for a different series. But don't act like they're retarded for going with a known property just because you don't like it.
Kilgrave's name is ACTUALLY Purple Man and it wasn't just /co/ making fun of the ridiculous way he dresses
Oh man this is the greatest laugh of 2016 so far.
>Jessica Jones gets 2 seasons before a Moon Knight series is even announced
Disappointed in this announcement, was hoping Luke Cage's show would basically be JJ season 2, just with more Luke and less JJ. We are never going to get to Iron Fist at this point.
Since this is happening, I hope they have JJ do some more detective work this time around.
Yes the person that could have everything he wanted from anyone he wanted surely spent a lot of time on a Taiwanese tapestry website that is 90% people talking about things they want.
For the next season, they should just skip the scenes with glamorous emotional violence and replace them with clips of a robot screaming "RAPE" for a few minutes. It'll save time and get the same point across.
>he doesn't know what the stars on Netflix mean
>tries to use them to help his argument
Purple Man was kind of a goofy villain, for a very long time. Like a lot of superpowers that Stan Lee came up with back in the 60s, he spent about 30 seconds thinking about them before telling the artist what to do. It wasn't until Bendis wrote Alias that people realised that his abilities not only make him a serious threat, but also make for a real fucked up character, and anyone he encounters will get fucked up.
>Hell, which villains will Luke Cage's show even have?
They've so far confirmed Cottonmouth Cornell, Black Maria, and Shades.
This lists some of his baddies - http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Luke_Cage
>Because it's all character
There's no characters, just a bunch of walking shallow cliches.
It's on IZombie level of character writing, except at least IZombie doesn't take itself that seriously.
