It’s been two weeks since Marvel’s Jessica Jones was released, and Netflix still hasn’t renewed it! Perhaps we’ve been spoiled by the lightning fast renewals of Daredevil and other Netflix original series. But the truth is that Jessica Jones has a lot of fans here at Nerdist HQ. And we want more!
There are so many reasons why Jessica Jones landed a spot on our Best of Television in 2015 list. Krysten Ritter was dynamic as the title character, and the series had very strong turns by Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Rachael Taylor as Patsy ‘Trish” Walker, Jessica’s best friend, confidant, and surrogate sister. Former Doctor Who star David Tennant also gave an unforgettably terrifying performance as Kilgrave, the man who made Jessica Jones’ life into a living hell. On top of everything else, Jessica Jones also broke new ground for representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and her creative team really hit it out of the park with this adaptation.
As a tribute to the series Eric Calderone a.k.a. Erock has released a metalized version of the Jessica Jones opening theme by Sean Callery. In the accompanying video, the noirish and jazzy musical notes by Callery are merged with Calderone’s heavy metal style and expanded upon.
Calderone’s popular YouTube channel features his heavy metal takes on dozens of popular genre films, TV shows and anime series. Earlier this year, Calderone also created a metal cover version of Daredevil’s opening theme by John Paesano.
