Shortly after Jessica Jones aired on Netflix late last year, a second season was announced but we still don’t have a release date. As far as we can tell, it will be out after The Defenders and possibly before the third season of Daredevil, but what can we expect?
“[Jessica] was kind of messed up even before Kilgrave came along and so in Season Two we can explore what’s possible for her moving forward,” Jessica Jones‘ showrunner Melissa Rosenberg told Empire. “I learned from working on Dexter that you can advance the character, but you never want to cure the character…that trauma is a huge part of who she is now.”
Rosenberg also confirmed that Luke Cage would not feature in the second season, which halts any plans they may have had to reflect their relationship from the comics. But that doesn’t mean Jones can’t have »

Going into Jessica Jones last year, I had some very real fears. Yes, I was excited to get another Marvel/Netflix series. Daredevil had turned out exceptional, and I had no reason to expect anything different from Jessica Jones. My biggest fear, however, was that Jessica Jones would feel far too similar to Daredevil -- that they would feel like they were cut from the same cloth. They were both shows that took place in the seedy underbelly of New York City, after all, and at the end of the day, how different could these shows be? And they were only two of four planned series. I wasn't sure I could take four of the same type of shows set in the same world.
Luckily for me, what I got was a very different series. Rather than focus on punch-drunk hand-to-hand combat and general vigilante activities, Jessica Jones focused on »

Across 13 episodes in season 1, Jessica Jones ultimately found the strength to confront her tormentor and take him down for good in the season finale. However, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg promises that just because Killgrave is gone, it doesn't mean that Jessica will suddenly be cured of all of her personal demons. "I learned from working on Dexter that you can advance the character, but you never want to cure the character. With Dexter, the moment he felt guilt or accepted that he was 'bad,' the show's over. He's no longer a sociopath. The equivalent for us would be if Jessica somehow recovered from the damage that had been done to her. People don't just heal, you don't go through that just to say, 'Oh, he got arrested, he's in jail, I'm Ok now. ' That trauma is a huge part of who she is now." Rosenberg went on to add »

You’ve heard of it, haven’t you? Hollywood’s double vision? It’s a tendency that so often results in two duelling features emerging into the limelight that center on the same subject matter, and can range from fantastical adventures (Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman) to more action-oriented spectacle (White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen). At Sundance Film Festival, it occurred again, and this time involves two pictures based on the life and times of Christine Chubbuck.
On this occasion, it is director Antonio Campos that is behind the lens, placing Rebecca Hall in the role of former Florida news reporter Christine Chubbuck. It’s pegged for release in early October, with today’s reveal trailer showcasing Chubbuck’s spiral into depression that would result in her infamous suicide circa 1974. Harrowing stuff, but it does include a standout performance from Hall, who unfairly missed out »

It's easy to forget about Marvel and Netflix's Iron Fist with Luke Cage and his invincible skin debuting in only four weeks time. The presumptive next New York superhero series has been in production for months and every now and then a new sneak peek from the on-location sets makes its way online.
The latest inside look at the production from showrunner Scott Buck (Dexter, Six Feet Under) features the show's namesake, Danny Rand (Finn Jones), wounded and bloody on a street corner. He appears to have sustained an injury on his right midsection nasty enough to force him off his feet.
Iron Fist will delve much deeper into mystical and spiritual elements that the second season of Daredevil scratched the surface of with the introduction of The Hand. More importantly it is the final solo Marvel superhero series on Netflix before The Defenders arrives where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage »
Iron Fist, the Marvel series that will grace Netflix with its presence after Luke Cage does, has been in production for a few months now. There's plenty of anticipation surrounding the project, since it'll be the first of the Marvel shows on Netflix to delve into supernatural elements and mysticism. Daredevil and Jessica Jones have both been fairly grounded, and fairly gritty. The story of Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist, is going to take viewers on a very different kind of journey when it arrives next year. When you couple that "new territory" feeling with the fact it'll be the final piece of the puzzle before we get to the big The Defenders team-up event, there's plenty to look forward to.
