Gender-Flipping on TV: What’s Gained When a Male Character Is Reimagined as Female

Gender-Flipping on TV: What’s Gained When a Male Character Is Reimagined as Female
What’s old is new again, and that includes the practice of gender-flipping a role. Commonly seen in folk tales and comic book properties, the practice has been a staple on the big screen and gaining popularity on TV, especially when it comes to reimagining male characters as female.

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,

Just weeks after premiering its second season, Netflix has confirmed Jessica Jones will return for a third season. The announcement was made via the show’s Twitter page, though didn’t provide any information on when season three will enter production.

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.

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.

Marvel's Jessica Jones Has Been Renewed For Season 3 at Netflix!

If you're a fan of Marvel's Jessica Jones series, you'll be happy to hear that Netflix has renewed it for Season 3! I personally love what Marvel and the creative team have done with this Jessica Jones series. The first season was so good, and even though some people didn't care for Season 2, I thought it was fantastic! I thought it told a great and powerful story with incredible character development.

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!

13 Notable Male Roles Rewritten as Amazing Women

  • TVfanatic
High Fidelity is the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby that was adapted into the 2000 film starring John Cusack.

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.

Jessica Jones Season 2 Episode 12 Review – ‘Aka Pray for My Patsy’

Matt Rodgers reviews the twelfth episode of Jessica Jones season 2…

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

In the series' sophomore season, which starts streaming today, our detective with the strength of 10 men and the massive chip on her shoulder gets called a "vigilante superhero." A "freak."

‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 Spoiler Review: Marvel’s Best Leading Lady Anchors Its Most Essential TV Show

  • Indiewire
When the first season of “Jessica Jones” premiered nearly two and a half years ago, the Netflix/Marvel universe felt shiny and new, and fans relished the possibilities behind this bold new take on superhero storytelling.

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.

Carrie-Anne Moss Breaks Down ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2 ‘Vulnerability’

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched the second season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”

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

Krysten Ritter doesn’t think we’re getting a second season of The Defenders

So far, all of Netflix’s Marvel shows have found themselves renewed, save for one – The Defenders – which brought together the heroes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. And, according to Jessica Jones herself, it seems the Marvel team-up miniseries could be one and done.

“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.

Krysten Ritter on Jessica Jones using all female directors for season 2

With season two of Jessica Jones set to hit Netflix tomorrow (March 8th), Krysten Ritter has been chatting to Collider to promote the Marvel series, during which she spoke about the decision to have every episode directed by a female.

“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.
