Some superheroes would rather melt into a bar and sip in peace. But Jessica Jones, New York’s sarcastic super-powered detective, never gets her wish. She has suffered childhood trauma, sexual assault, incitement to murder and more. All these deep wounds make him one of Marvel’s most fascinating superheroes. That’s probably why we have a third season of Jessica Jones on Netflix. Melissa Rosenberg will be the Executive Producer, assisted by Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory (Marvel Television).
Krysten Ritter plays Jessica Jone, a private detective with superhuman strength and a strong penchant for alcohol. She is accompanied by her adopted sister Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) who aspires to be as special as Jessica. Then there’s the fearsome lawyer Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) who occasionally hires Jessica for better or worse. The Jessica Jones series is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe chronology and we also find the heroine in the crossover series The Defenders where she fights alongside Like Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist.
Unfortunately, she did not earn her place alongside Captain America, Iron Man, The Black Widow and Thor in Avengers : Infinity War. But oddly enough, a few Avengers get hints in Jessica Jones. Confers ice to the water Spider-Man in season 1 and Captain America in season 2. And even if she will never face Thanos, our heroine who has a serious run comes back in season 3 to kick criminals and make life choices more or less alcoholic.
S.J. Clarkson, director of the first season’s Episode 1 pilot was recently selected to direct the upcoming Star Trek (a first for a woman). Jessica Jones’ second season was entirely directed by women including Jennifer and Uta Briesewitz (The Wire). The directors for the third season have not yet been confirmed but it is highly likely that the women will still be present in force. And so much the better!
In Season 1, Jessica Jones is up against Kilgrave, a villain who can control the mind by voice. He raped Jessica and forced her to commit murder. In season 2, Jessica deals with her childhood traumas and her real mother.
For Season 3, Melissa Rosenberg recently told the Los Angeles Times that the series aspires to “do something different once again. We’ve explored a lot about his past. Maybe this time we’ll look at… everything’s open. We can really do anything. »
In the comics, Jessica Jones went to school with Peter Parker (Spider Man) and her father worked with Tony Stark (Iron Man). So, even if fans have already had a glimpse of the terrible car accident she was involved in as a child, the show hasn’t yet made the connection with the other Marvel characters.
Still in the comics, Jessica and Luke are married with a daughter named Danielle. We’d like to see the lovers reunited in season 3 since Luke’s out of season 2.
In the comics, the couple’s nanny is none other than Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl) who will also be found in the future Marvel New Warriors series. Fingers crossed that she’ll appear in season 3 if Luke and Jessica are back together and have a child.
Now that Trish has finally acquired super powers following her accident at the end of season 2, fans may well find her as the superhero alter ego of the original Marvel comics Hellcat.
This gives us a good basis for the plot of season 3: how humans could acquire super powers like Trish, how her desire to be the best superhero could confuse her with Jessica, whom she has otherwise accused of cowardice for not using her powers to help more people.
” Trish is a character with a lot of ambition,” Rachael Taylor told Den of Geek last March. ” I believe she covets Jessica’s powers. Trish wants to matter, to do more. She wants to be more than what she is. »
And then there’s all these people who don’t like superheroes. In season 2, we see them in law enforcement, Jessica’s building superintendent and complete strangers treating her like a monster. This discrimination by humans will certainly be present in season 3, especially now that the super heroes have been unmasked by the actions of the Avengers.
