Swapping a character’s gender often occurs in the process of remaking or reimagining a pre-existing story. The most recent example on TV is the casting of Parker Posey to portray the villainous Dr. Smith on Netflix’s reboot of “Lost in Space.” The role was originated by Jonathan Harris in the ‘60s-era Irwin Allen series.
But gender-flipping can also occur in the process of creating a new character. In the case of lawyer Jeri Hogarth on “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” the production started by crafting a female character and then retrofitting her with an identity from Marvel. That’s how Jeryn Hogarth,
Despite the upcoming competitive online streaming service from Disney, the parent company to Marvel Comics, Jessica Jones Season 3 will reside at the home where it began.
Jessica Jones Season 2 premiered a month ago on International Women's Day, and while it wasn't received with quite the fanfare of Jessica Jones Season 1, it is still the most highly regarded of the Marvel series airing on Netflix.
Critics and fans alike have come to love the portrayal of the gritty, embittered, and emotional Jones by its star, Krysten Ritter.

During Season 2, not only was Jones dealing with her new life in the spotlight as a superhuman who can kill with her bare hands, but she also dealt with more personal issues, including the death of her family, that put a strain on her closest relationships in the present.
Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the titular super-powered private detective. The first season saw her battling Killgrave, a man with the power to control anyone and do what he says while the second saw her uncovering the mysteries of her past and how she gained her powers.
The series takes place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, alongside Netflix’s other Marvel Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. The four shows had a crossover of sorts with the miniseries The Defenders, which brought all four heroes together as they fought for New York City’s survival.
Here's to season 3! https://t.co/Ioq0nDtkwm pic.twitter.com/cPGyvWfPNf
Marvel’s superhero drama has been renewed for a third season at Netflix, the streaming giant said Thursday.
Season 2 dropped last month, three years after the show’s initial run in 2015. In Season 2, fans were given a little more of Jessica and Trish’s backstory as they take on a case close to Jessica (no spoilers, promise).

Season 2 featured all female directors, something Ritter told TheWrap is “something to celebrate.”
“Obviously created by a woman, stars women, this season it felt just so on-brand and exciting moment to celebrate these female filmmakers,” she said ahead of the Season 2 premiere. “They didn’t go into it with this intention it happened organically and that to me is really exciting.”
Krysten Ritter stars as the titular superhero, along with Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth and Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg executive produces, as does Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. “Jessica Jones” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

There's no word on what the plot of Season 3 will be, but Kristen Ritter will reprise her role as the hard-drinking, super-powered New York City private investigator. With a person that has had such a hard life, I imagine that Jessica Jones will still be trying to keep herself together, especially after what she went through in Season 2! I also just have to say that Kristien Ritter has given such an incredible performance in this series!
I'm sure that
Jessica Jones is coming off a rollercoaster of a second season, which included a major parental twist and ended with an explosive finale that would lead anyone to drink as much as the show’s title character.
In addition to Ritter, the Netflix drama’s cast also includes Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth and Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse.

The second season of the Marvel series saw Krysten Ritter return in the title role as a hard-drinking, super-powered New York City private investigator, who was just beginning to put her life back together after murdering her tormenter, Kilgrave, in the end of Season 1. The second season also saw Jessica delving into how she got her powers, the result of a genetic experiment as a child after a car crash that claimed the lives of her family.
The series also stars Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s best friend Trish Walker,
It is now being developed into a TV series with one major change: the lead role is being written for a woman.
Let's check out some of the other times that a woman stepped into a role originally created for a man.
1. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace (Battlestar Galactica) When Ronald D. Moore's re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica announced that Starbuck was going to be a woman, there were many skeptics. Katee Sackhoff ultimately landed the role and quickly won over viewers with her powerful portrayal. 2. Lenny (Legion) Showrunner Noah Hawley first envisioned David's friend Lenny as a middle-aged man. Once he met Aubrey Plaza, Hawley rewrote the role so she could play it. 3. Jeri Hogarth (Marvel Netflix Universe) In adapting comic character Jeryn Hogarth for the Marvel/Netflix franchise, he became a she.
Revenge is the order of the day in this penultimate season 2 episode; Alisa is after an unconscious Trish for the fiery demise of Dr. Karl, while Jeri is performing detective work of her own in order to track down Inez.
If you think this season has lacked a villain, look closely and you’ll realise that they’ve all been battling with their own individual nemesis; Trish’s inferiority complex, Jessica’s own mother, who she has mourned for years, turning out to be a monster that she still inexplicably loves, and Jeri, fighting a crippling disease, as well as the weakness of exposed vulnerability. You don’t always need a shady organisation to take down. This run of Jessica Jones has thrived on the relationships of its characters, and while not always successful (anyone remember Griffin?), it makes a
It's been 19 years since The Matrix starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss was released theatrically, and 15 years since it was last remastered.
That drought finally comes to an end as Bill Pope (The Matrix Trilogy, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, Baby Driver), the film's director of photography, has overseen an all-new remaster from the original film elements. We are the benefactors of this effort as we'll get to see The Matrix in 4K Uhd with Dolby Vision Hdr and Dolby Atmos Audio in just over two months time.
The Matrix Uhd release also includes a new Blu-ray edition and Digital HD edition, both featuring the new remaster. The inclusive Blu-ray is not any of the previously released versions.

But now in the year 2018, after slogging through a second season of “Daredevil” that felt inessential, “Iron Fist” (no explanation needed), and the ultimately disappointing “The Defenders,” our excitement level for a new Marvel season — even a follow-up to arguably the very best Marvel season produced so far — is a bit waning.
That said — damn, is it good to be hanging out with Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) again. In Season 2, the P.I. with superpowers remains vulnerable to bullets as well as the consequences of her bad choices. And while the narrative surrounding her takes too long to find cohesion, it still results in a searing, in-depth character study not normally expected from this genre.
The titular character in “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” isn’t the only one dealing with trauma and vulnerability. In the second season of the Netflix drama, Jeri Horgath (Carrie-Anne Moss) receives an Als diagnosis, and it causes her to react in some surprising ways.
“The first season we really got to spend a lot of time with her in that shark mode — that mode of talking in that rhythm and always sort of driving the scenes. This season, for me, just
“Y’know, I had a great time doing The Defenders and honestly, it was such a good experience that I would even do it again,” Ritter told Vulture. “I don’t think we are doing it again. It was never intentioned to do it again, but, you know, if I was given another opportunity, I would. My heart is with my show because of the subject matter and because of the great drama that we get to do and the personal issues that we explore. For me, that is more the type of content that I enjoy as a viewer and as a performer.
“It was really great,” said Ritter. “Our show is already so female. Season 1 was so female. It’s already in our DNA. But having all women this season was exciting because it’s never been done before, which is stupid. The content that we cover and the dark subject matter and the sexual stuff, to be honest, having those conversations with a woman is a lot easier for me. I feel much more at ease and safe, and able to be vulnerable and raw, when you’re planning this stuff out with a woman. It just takes something away from a conversation, when you can’t be really real and raw.
