Not a fan of either Ritter or Jessica Jones so it's the perfect match for me.

Somehow think that will be omitted from this version.

Hey.... if we could get Mewling Quim in The Avengers... maybe we could get some neat wordplay in this too.

Not sure about Ritter. Not who I'd ever guess for Jessica Jones. She's very hit and miss. But I'd blame it more on the material than her.

http://www.newsarama.com/23054-netfl...d-costume.html

The showrunner Steven S. DeKnight says the Netflix series will be the "exact opposite" of the Ben Affleck movie. Whatever the heck that means.

It's going to be more crime drama, less traditional superhero. It's much darker and grittier than anything Marvel has done before, but not Spartacus levels of violence of course.

The comic origin is retained, and DeKnight confirms that the black costume seen earlier is inspired by Frank Miller's Man Without Fear origin miniseries. DeKnight also confirms that Murdock will definitely get the classic red Daredevil costume as well.

The last sentence of my post says that the red costume will be in it.

Personally, I hope the yellow costume show up too...

I read gritty crime drama as Hollywood speak for it is much cheaper to film a street-level Daredevil that avoids superheroes. Don't want to pay a costume designer? Go with Matt's ugly, improvised suit from one mini-series.

It will be interesting to see how these Netflix programs look in terms of production design. They didn't blow the budget out for Agents of SHIELD and that is on network television.

Gritty crime drama works very well for Daredevil. It is the closest character Marvel has to Batman. I expect this series to be somewhat similar to Nolan's Batman. And for the last fricking time, the black costume is temporary. It has been confirmed as much. The red costume will be in there as well. Good grief Charlie Brown. Comic fanboys are the absolute worst when it comes to this. They criticize everything no matter what.

I can't believe there's absolutely zero chance of the red costume being used on screen!

Seriously! I wish they'd release a statement about it at least.

I only half-read the last post in every thread. Personally, if having Daredevil shit his bed to make his series "dark & gritty" then I don't want any part of it. Seriously, I haven't shit the bed in years and I'm not even close to being a superhero!

Haven't seen anything he's done, but sounds good to me. Is the title really A.K.A. Jessica Jones? Weird.

Yeah, that title is really dumb.

Also known as Jessica Jones? Luke Cage is also known as Jessica Jones? Is he a cross-dresser now?

Seriously, though wasn't Luke Cage supposed to get his own series? This sounds like he is just appearing in Jessica Jones' series. I thought all four (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist) were getting their own series.

I was really hoping they would cast the guy who played Doakes on Dexter. Surprise motherfucker!

Luke Cage and Iron Fist are each getting their own series according to the initial announcement. But Cage is showing up in AKAJJ first.

I think they're kind of screwed with the title. Jessica Jones by itself is kind of boring and Alias is too associated with the Jennifer Garner series.

I mentioned this in the Agents of SHIELD thread, but the guy they cast as Mack (Henry Simmons) would have made a great Cage. I wonder if he gets confused on set with people saying "Simmons" all the time...





oh well, moot point.

but let's see what Colter looks like beefed up (most of the pictures I've seen, he looks more on the slender side).

They should have gone with Jessica Jones: I.A.S.
