‘What are you? How did you end up like this? Are you going to kill me?’ Jessica Jones reiterates questions she’s most asked in a flat, disinterested voice.
This new behind-the-scenes look at Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season Two explores the characters – their growth/lack of same, and their attempts to find their place in the world – not in terms of superherodom, but as people.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season Two premieres on Netflix on International Women’s Day, Thursday, March 8th.
Marvel’s Inhumans was shot with IMAX cameras, so it doesn’t look like a typical pilot blown up to IMAX – with all the small screen inadequacies painfully apparent.
Instead, everything feels the right size, but the CG sets (the city of Attilan on the dark side of the moon) lack weight – which wouldn’t matter so much if the script was better and the acting of widely varied quality.
Although Netflix’s Marvel superhero shows play well to fans of the comics, a significant percentage of the audience for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luge Cage, Iron Fist and, now, the Defenders took a more circuitous route to these shows.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger won’t make it debut until next year, but Freeform has already released a teaser for the series.
As a fan of the original comic (too many years ago), I have to say that the trailer captures the essence of the comic – the duo’s situations prior to meeting each other; the hesitance as they discover their nunique bond, and, of course, their powers.
There’s even a very cool shout out to Cloak’s comics costume (blankets can do weird stuff…).
