Before the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) became the complex and interconnected jigsaw that it is today, Marvel’s film and television adaptations were originally produced under a variety of different banners. Marvel TV developed many projects on various networks, including the six series of Defenders Saga that is available on Netflix. Marvel Studios was responsible for the cinematic Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Fox was in charge of the X-Men and Fantastic Four, and Sony was in charge of The Amazing Spider-Man.
Between the years of 2015 and 2019, Marvel TV and Netflix broadcast a total of thirteen seasons of the television shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders and The Punisher. Although there were undoubtedly a lot of highs and lows in terms of quality and responses, Daredevil and Jessica Jones are generally acknowledged to have maintained the highest level of quality throughout their respective seasons.
Krysten Ritter portrayed Jessica Jones, a hard-nosed and emotionally tormented super-powered private investigator who had previously spent years under the mind control of David Tennant’s villainous and manipulative Kilgrave character. Jessica Jones was featured in the Marvel television series Jessica Jones. It was recently announced that all 39 episodes of the series will be moving to Disney+ alongside the rest of the Defenders Saga, which would allow for the introduction of a great number of new viewers.
Now, in a surprise turn of events, Disney+ has revised the titles of all three of the previously aired seasons of Jessica Jones to something entirely different.
Netflix’s Jessica Jones Will Have a New Name on Disney+
The title card for Jessica Jones on Disney+ has been modified to reflect the series’ new moniker, AKA Jessica Jones. On the front page of Disney+, the old Netflix series is still referred to by its original title, and the changed title is only reflected during the introduction sequence. Prior to its transition to Netflix, the series was known by its original title, AKA Jessica Jones, when it was still in the process of being created at ABC.
Why Is Jessica Jones’ Name Now Something Else?
As a result of the fact that Daredevil will be brought back to life by Disney+, rumors are flying around that Marvel Studios is making plans to bring back all of the Marvel programs that were formerly broadcast on Netflix. The recently revived title of the canceled series Jessica Jones is the most recent sign that the show, along with Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and The Punisher, may potentially return at some point in the near or far future.
It’s possible that Disney+ changed the name of the project to AKA Jessica Jones in order to differentiate it from whatever Marvel Studios has in store for Krysten Ritter’s character. If so, this would make sense. Given that the first letter of the titles of each episode throughout all three seasons is “AKA,” the revised title is an appropriate one. This is especially true considering that “AKA” was the initial name for the series when it was first conceived.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, is getting ready to reveal the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) later this month at San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s possible that some of the heroes from Netflix may be a part of the announcement. The likelihood of an official revelation for Daredevil is already exceedingly high, but the plans that Disney has in store for the remaining members of the Defenders can only be revealed with the passage of time.
