Jessica Jones is best know for her MAX series Alias in which Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos introduced her to the Marvel Universe starting her own private detective agency. Although her present status as wife and mother might not be the most exciting source for the show, her past contains potential stories that can be expanded greatly for an enjoyable television experience. Also, this could be the perfect setting to introduce other well known Marvel characters like Luke Cage.
According to Variety, Rosenberg will be working with the series' executive producers Jeph Loeb, Joe Quesada, Alan Fine and Howard Klein. Bendis will also be a consultant for the show.
It seems as though the Marvel and Disney partnership is bringing great things for the company especially since Marvel's animation division is behind the Super Hero Squad, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and will soon be releasing Ultimate Spider-Man animated series. Also, according to the same article by Variety:
"Insiders said Rosenberg was drawn to Jessica Jones because the character is unlike most female leading roles on network TV: deeply flawed but with a biting sense of humor."
AKA Jessica Jones, which will be the title for the series, is still in it's planning stage which means that until there is an official word from either Marvel, ABC or Disney themselves everything is subjected to change at any moment.
"Disney Channel execs recently said they hope to create a Marvel-branded programming block on Disney go by 2012."
Hulk, Cloak and Dagger and Jessica Jones, what do you think of the future live-action Marvel TV series line-up?
