Those wondering where screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will end up once she’s done piecing together the final Twilight chapter on the big screen should look no further than a piece in Variety that says Rosenberg will write and exec produce a new TV show called AKA Jessica Jones, based on a little-known Marvel character who was a superhero-turned-private investigator. Jones’ comic history has her coming into contact with everyone from Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man) to Johnny Storm to Daredevil, though it is not known whether any of these characters will appear in the TV series.
Well to be fair, she has horrible source material to go from(Twilight).
This is not a very good call. Why not see if Brian Michael Bendis or a couple of his friends are available? BMB created the character and shaped quite a bit of her career. Smallville's current writers are going to need a new gig next year, why not give them a call? OTOH, Ms. Rosenberg was working from terrible source materials. Maybe reading 'Alias,' 'The Pulse' or recent Avengers comics might help her find the right tone for the series. To start, touhg, my expectations will be low.
I do not think it was a good call at all. She is responsible for one of the worst Screenplay writing I've ever seen. however Producers don't always write stuff so maybe that will be ok. I am not sure super hero tv is a good idea at all. Don't get me wrong the animated series" they do are pretty good. I love X-men TAS and Wolverine and the X-men plus some of the spidey Cartoons have been really good as well. I just fear that live action TV is a bad move for Marvel., but we shall see. I think this AKA... is going to be terrible. Hopefully a Huk show will be alright, and I'm interested in if Wonder Woman can make a tv comeback. Sop those twop may get a watch by me but not a twi-related show. NO THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
OH DEAR GOD NO. First and foremost, tv shows about superheroes are just bad ideas. Hate to break it to you folks Heroes was the fluke. Second, of all Melissa Rosenberg is a talentless hack. I've seen more mature writing and character development from the scribblings in the bathroom stall. What Rosenberg and Rice have done to the mythological vampire should be a war crime. Here is the synopsis for every (hopefully few) episode of train-wreck . . . 1. Close-up on the main character 2. stuff happens 3. insert teenage angst 4. complication 5. sad sad face 6. resolution. 7. uncomfortable scene from the ominous bad guy. Rinse, Repeat.
Actually, most popular superheroes are only as popular as they are because they have had t.v. shows. Like back in the day episodes of Batman and Superman. Also, Smallville has done a pretty good job at being a superhero show before Heroes came along. Not to mention all of the cartoons out there for the Avengers and all those other fan favorites. Considering all the superhero shows there are, I think there are more good ones than bad...
I would agree. Did everyone forget about Jessica Alba (B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L) in Dark Angel? Or Summer Glau (G-O-D-D-E-S-S) in Firefly (Serenity/Terminator)?? Do I need to go on................
I think you mean Rosenberg and Myers.
i do think that Melissa Rosenberg was a great choice. i think that maybe Jessica Alba would be a good addition to the character or maybe even Jessica Beil...i believe shes very talented and just gets a bad rap from time to time.
