JESSICA JONES Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg Answers Our Questions!

If you’re here, right now, on this very website, chances are you’re at least intrigued by Netflix and Marvel’s latest series, Jessica Jones. After all, it’s got everything one could want from a Marvel show. There’s gritty suspense, grounded reality, action hijinks, and a heck of a lot of mind control.

Which is why, after she stopped by on Nerdist News on Thursday, we couldn’t let series showrunner just pop on and pop off; we had to get down to the real talk and glean as much information about Jessica Jones as we could. And oh, there is so much to know! From the differences (and similarities!) between itself and Daredevil, why Krysten Ritter was always her go-to gal, the consequences of PTSD in a superhero world, and the myriad ways in which Jones and the other major heroine Rosenberg wrote for screen—Twilight‘s Bella Swan—are different, Jessica Chobot got all sorts of interesting info, straight from the showrunner herself.

But don’t just take our word for it—watch the dang vidja, y’all!

Netflix and Marvel’s Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter in the titular role, alongside David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Carrie-Ann Moss as Jeryn Hogarth, and Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker. It premieres for your binging pleasure on Friday, November 20, 2015 at midnight.
