With “Daredevil” being such a critically-acclaimed hit after its release on Netflix this past April, many fans are still wondering when we might be able to see the next original series on the streaming service inspired by the characters of Marvel Comics. Now, we may have an idea. After catching a glimpse of a new, official logo for the forthcoming series, Marvel has now officially released a high resolution version of the title for “Jessica Jones.” See it below.
The series, which is said to be primarily based on the Marvel Comics series Alias, which was published under the adults-only MAX imprint from November of 2001 to January of 2004. The comic book series focused on the character of Jessica Jones, a former costumed superhero who leaves that life behind to become a private investigator. Marvel and Netflix’s “Jessica Jones” will keep that same basic premise for the new series, which will be set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe along with Netflix’s “Daredevil,” ABC’s shows “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Agent Carter,” as well as all of the Marvel Studios films from 2008′s Iron Man on up to last month’s Ant-Man.
The big question, though, is when we’ll be able to actually see the new show. While Netflix nor Marvel have actively committed to a solid release date for all first season episodes, a recent statement made by head of Netflix Ted Sarandos (via Bleeding Cool) may start to give us an idea. According to his statement during a presentation at the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour, he said that we could expect a new Marvel series or season about every six months. If that scheduling holds true, then “Jessica Jones” could hit the service starting sometime in October.
“Jessica Jones” will star Krysten Ritter as the title character, along with Mike Colter as Luke Cage, David Tennant as Kilgrave/Purple Man, and Rachael Taylor as Trish “Patsy” Walker, Jones’ best friend. Rosario Dawson is also slated to guest star on at least one episode to reprise her role as Claire Temple, aka the “Night Nurse” of Hell’s Kitchen from “Daredevil.”
