The Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: AKA Jessica Jones

The Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: AKA Jessica Jones

Marvel's The Avengers is releasing in the next couple of months, and after that Iron Man, Thor, and the other heroes will all return to their solo movies. But what about the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? What new heroes will join it? In this series of Editorials I look at possible Movies and TV Shows Marvel has shown interest in and discuss how they could affect the future of the MCU.

Many fans are speculating as to where the Marvel Cinematic Universe will go next - Ant Man? Black Panther? Dr. Strange? Guardians of the Galaxy? The list goes on. Today I'm going to be looking at the upcoming Marvel TV show AKA Jessica Jones, based on the Alias comic seies, which will be set in the MCU.

In 2010, reports came out that Melissa Rosenberg, screenwriter of Twilight, was working on a series called AKA Jessica Jones, based on the Alias comic series. And later last year, she confirmed that AKA Jessica Jones would be set in the MCU. SO, what does this mean?

To start, the most obvious is probably cameos and references. Rosenberg has said Stark Industries will be featured in the pilot, and would play a big role. But it also means we could see Agent Coulson or Maria Hill in an episode, other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Heroes and Villains!

Next up: Luke Cage and Ms. Marvel. Both of these heroes will have a part in the series, and this definatley helps set up the MCU further. Cast actors willing to feature in movies, and actors who are GOOD in their roles, and we could see this Luke Cage popping up in a Heroes for Hire movie, or Ms. Marvel in The Avengers 2. The show would also be able to introduce other new characters, who could then go on to feature in the movies. Iron Fist, for example, could feature in an episode, further increasing chance of a Heroes for Hire movie. The chances of lesser known characters being introduced in the MCU would be much higher.

And for one final point, it could also help flesh out events that happen in the movies, even if briefly. For example, how the World goes on after Loki and his army invade in The Avengers. It would only need to be one or two lines but it would make this universe seem even more fleshed out.

So these are my ideas on how AKA Jessica Jones could expand upon the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Any thoughts of your own? Leave them in the comments below!
