Even thought i believe in adding more diversity in media i am one of the few Marvel fans who really just did not care to see a Black Widow movie. I love the character and i love Scarlett Johansson in the role, but i’ve been wanting their first female lead superhero movie to be a more interesting an unique character. And this is exactly why. While it does kind of suck that this has been relegated to the small screen, its kind of hard to care when the show looks this damn good.
While i’ve always held that the general posativity of Marvels movies has been one of their biggest strengths, i really did enjoy the darker tone of Daredevil, if for no other reason than it was a change of pace. But more importantly, then went dark the right way, by not backing down from the subject matter but still having a clear division between hero and villain. Jessica Jones really seems to be running with that idea and i’m loving the look of it so far. Tennant‘s “Kilgrave” is looking to be an awesome villain (even if his name is really stupid. not as bad as “Blackheart” though) and Krysten Ritter’s take on Jessica really works for me.
This is, by far, what i’m most excited for TV/Movie wise for the rest of this year.
