Official Logo for Netflix’s Jessica Jones Gets Released. We finally have our first look at the new logo for the upcoming Marvel series Jessica Jones on Netflix. The new logo definitely represents the tone that the show is going for, which EP Melissa Rosenberg knows more about.
Jessica Jones went through some changes with the logo as it was formerly AKA Jessica Jones and then went to just Jessica Jones. Speaking with changes, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg spoke with Slash Film about how much different Jessica Jones is from Daredevil in regards to tone.
Jessica Jones is a very different show from Daredevil. We exist in a cinematic universe, the mythology of the universe is connected, but it will look very different. Tonally they’re very different. If you pick up Bendis’ Alias and pick up Daredevil, they’re wildly different. That was my one concern. Would I have to fit in with Daredevil? The answer was, ‘No, we’re hiring you for your point of view.’
Another difference between the two shows is that, unlike Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones doesn’t have an alter ego she can change into when she goes into crime fighting. “The one thing [where] Steven [DeKnight] has the advantage, his show was called Daredevil but Daredevil has an outfit. Charlie Cox can get a break once in a while. My show is called Jessica Jones. There is no mask. Krysten Ritter is the hardest working actress.”
With how the show will be, we now have a better idea of what direction Jessica Jones is going towards. This seems like the right way to tackle the character, especially with the showrunner finding a good place for inspiration.
It all starts with Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias series. He created this incredibly flawed, damaged interesting character. Regardless of gender, it was the character that drew me. He wasn’t afraid to go there and we went even further. We’ve gone further in all of our storytelling. [Is] the audience going to respond to this or not? I don’t know, but if I’m afraid of it I’m doing the right thing.
Melissa Rosenberg also touched upon the advantages of using some murky characters while being closely examined by Marvel Studios. “Where you run into limitations is if you’re using one of their characters and you need to be cognizant of the mythology of the character. We’re using some pretty obscure characters so we’re taking them all over the place.”
