Marvel Studios had the big screen MCU, Fox had the X-Men and Fantastic Four, Sony had The Amazing Spider-Manand Marvel TV have developed numerous projects on various networks, including the six Defenders Saga series on Netflix.
From 2015 to 2019, Marvel TV released thirteen seasons of daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, iron fist, The defendersand The Punisher on Netflix combined. There have definitely been a lot of ups and downs in terms of quality and feedback, but daredevil and Jessica Jones are generally considered the most consistent quality.
Jessica Jones starred Krysten Ritter as a hard-nosed, emotionally tormented, super-powered private detective who had previously spent years under the mind control of David Tennant’s villainous and manipulative Kilgrave. All 39 episodes of the series recently made the jump to Disney+ along with the rest of the Defenders saga, opening the doors to countless new viewers.
Rumors are swirling that Jones will join Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock in returning to the MCU, just like the blind lawyer recently did in Spider-Man: No Coming Home.
Now Disney+ has made a surprising update to the existing three seasons to change the title of Jessica Jones absolutely.
