Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Some SDCC updates:


-Luke Cage and Carol Danvers will be on the show
-It is indeed based on the comic "Alias"

That's about it. It is still in development but nothing was elaborated on.

PleasebetheOldSpiceguy. PleasebetheOldSpiceguy!

But who would be Cage?

And hey, what about Daredevil? Does Fox own his horny ass on TV too?

Anyone else have a perverse need to see James Spader as Matt Murdock?

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Fox still owns the rights to "Daredevil" and there is a live action movie reboot in the works so he won't be showing up on TV. David Slade is directing the film.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Bummer, and what does this mean for Scott Lang? Will the Ant-man film (yeah, that'll happen ) preclude him from showing up?

Isn't Cage supposed to have a movie in the works too?

My God, what of Clay Quartermain?

Will S.H.I.E.L.D. show up?

Argh, my nerd brain! Why must I ask these questions?!

Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was recently interviewed about this project.
"It's still sitting at ABC and we're hoping to get on the schedule for next fall," she said. "I love this character. That is an incredibly damaged, dark, complex female character that kicks ass. That's my favorite thing about it."
See the link for more.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

I wonder if they'll be able to resist casting Summer Glau in the lead role?

Good luck to them, but ABC has 18 sf/f series in development, and that's not even counting the comedies or doctor shows they might also want to schedule...

Summer Glau is too sweet looking to play Jessica Jones.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

^ Agreed. The funny thing about the description Rossenberg gives Jess is that also describes Jessica Drew or aka Spider-Woman (the two women are friends as well) and I've stated that a Spider-Woman series or movie would be awesome. Especially with the work that Bendis has done with the character. Both of these characters owe their current popularity to Bendis. I'd have to think about who could play Jessica Jones though, if she weren't already on "Unforgettable" I think Poppy Montgomery would be a great choice.

I was just thinking maybe Claire Danes.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Claire Danes would be intriguing if she would be willing to return to television. Terry Crews is still my choice for Luke.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

How does one "return" to television when one is already on a show that's been renewed for a second season?

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Claire Danes is the female lead in Homeland on Showtime which sounds like it's in for the duration, but another actress with a similar sort of looks is Lake Bell.

Or dare I suggest Katee Sackhoff?

PS, I miscounted, ABC "only" has 16 sf/f shows in development. That I've heard of.

Wasn't "Alias" originally supposed to be about Jessica 'Spider-woman' Drew having lost her powers and working as PI? I seem to recall that Bendis originally envisioned that and then either he or Marvel had second thoughts about using Jessica D in a "Max" series.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

^^ I think Bendis denied that, didn't he? I mean, they used Captain America in Max, so I don't think they'd have a problem using a then-dormant character like Jessica Drew.

I actually like the Katee Sackhoff idea better than Lake Bell. Jessica Jones has to be tough and world-weary, and Lake Bell is more about being tanned and bikini-wearing.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

I had no idea that Claire was in "Homeland". I don't think Katee is right for Jess. There have been rumours that yes "Alias" was originally supposed to be about Jessica Drew not Jones but as RDJ has stated I think Bendis has denied this.
