Krysten Ritter is set to star in Marvel's new Netflix streaming series leading up to The Defenders, but what we once thought was titled A.K.A. Jessica Jones seems to have been streamlined a little bit. As pointed out by Screencrush, if you search Netflix Instant for the show, right now you'll see a banner image with a logo that's dropped the A.K.A. from the title. In the search bar and on the page itself, the title shows up as simply Marvel's Jessica Jones. ComicBook.com claims they reached out to Marvel and the company confirmed the title change. So I guess the A.K.A. is no more.
Working as a private investigator in New York's Hell's Kitchen, a troubled ex-superhero's past comes back to haunt her in the live-action series, "Marvel’s Jessica Jones."
What do you think about the title change? Is this a case of "no big deal," or do you think it's a bad omen for the show to drop its comic book roots (the comic Jones appears in is called Alias, a word that means the same thing as "aka")? The show debuts sometime later this year, and stars Ritter, David Tennant, Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, and more.
