Jessica Jones is the latest Marvel Studios original series to see production and release from Netflix streaming services online, following the successful launch of Daredevil (not so far) back in Spring 2015. With Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 star Krysten Ritter cast as the title character, Netflix is reportedly ready to take on another superhero living in the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Hell’s Kitchen for the second time in a row.
The new show has already promised to deliver a cinematic take on its superhero-turned-private-investigator with a dark past that will be in keeping with the comics. Based on a new leaked rumor from behind-the-scenes posted online, the program may wind up delivering some big developments pretty much from the get-go of season 1.
A pseudonymous Reddit poster claims the full list of Jessica Jones episode titles can be accessed online through the Netflix streaming service, with many references and allusions to well known narrative arcs and recurring characters throughout. The listed titles, superseded by the titular signifier A.K.A., are listed as follows:
- “Ladies Night”
- “Crush Syndrome”
- “It’s Called Whiskey”
- “99 Friends”
- “The Sandwich Saved Me”
- “You’re a Winner”
- “Top Shelf Perverts”
- “Sin Bin”
- “The Kumbaya Circle Jerk”
- “I’ve Got the Blues”
- “Jewel and the Power Man”
Please note, however, that the links (as posted on Reddit) have apparently been inactive for some users, which would lead one to believe that such a posting may only be a fan curated wish-list for Jessica Jones – and therefore entirely inaccurate.
Regardless, individual episode titles like “Ladies Night” seem to refer to a Hell Cat/Patricia Walker (Rachael Taylor) appearance in the first episode of Jessica Jones, leaving room for additional female Marvel superheroes to be introduced. Meanwhile, more snarky signifiers like “The Kumbaya Circle Jerk” suggest that the show will retain some levity amidst the gloom that is to be otherwise expected.
Titles like “Jewel and the Power Man,” however, suggests a potential flashback episode wherein Jones’ superhero days of yore with Mike Colter’s Luke Cage (who is already set to receive his own original series in 2016) are explored. If that does wind up happening, then Jessica Jones season 1 may well feature a superhero team-up; the catch is that it would be set well before the show’s present-day.
Either way, given the success of Daredevil, Marvel Studio’s latest partnership with Netflix should continue to prove beneficial for both parties. With Ritter and former Doctor Who star David Tennant starring in the latest Marvel/Netflix joint venture, comic book fans are likely to be engaged with the Jessica Jones TV show when it premieres.
Daredevil season one is currently available on Netflix. Jessica Jones releases in Fall 2015, followed by Luke Cage season one and Daredevil season two (a.k.a. Daredevil V Punisher) in 2016. Iron Fist and The Defenders will arrive sometime thereafter.
