More and more information is getting let out about the next Marvel/Netflix collaboration, Jessica Jones. A key question amongst fans is ‘how different will the two main characters be?’ in regards to Jessica and previous show star Matt Murdock aka Daredevil. Well, at the TCA’s, it became clear that they’ll be quite different.

“Jessica is about paying rent, getting the next client. She’s dealing with a fairly dark past. She’s trying to get through the day. She’s not really trying to save the city, she’s trying to save her apartment. At her core, she wants to do something good. She wants to contribute to the world. But there are a lot of personality issues for her that can get in the way…Jessica Jones is a brawler. She gets drunk, she gets pissed off, and boom, you’re down. She doesn’t wear a costume, she doesn’t have a mask. She’s just who she is.”

This a clear difference from Murdock, who wanted nothing more than to save the city both from the inside and out. We’ll have to see how far it goes though when the series launches sometime this fall.
