With Marvel?s Cinematic Universe established on the big screen, Marvel TV has been working to build the television side of the world in which The Avengers exist. As such, ABC has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, as well as two other series with pilot orders, Marvel?s Most Wanted and Damage Control. However, Marvel TV also includes the deal between the studio and Netflix that paved the way for four series and a team up featuring The Defenders. The Marvel/Netflix universe launched earlier this year with the premiere of Daredevil and continues with Jessica Jones next month.
?This character, most of what we?re talking about this panel, would not be possible without the work of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos.? Loeb introduced showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, and castmembers Erin Moriarty (Hope), Eka Darville (Malcolm), Will Traval, (Det. Will Simpson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeryn Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and series lead, Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones). The announcement of Moss? character was an NYCC reveal.
After being fully assembled, the cast sat down. Screams for ?David Tennant? rang out throughout the panel room, with Loeb saying, ?Be patient?.
Rosenberg talked about the crazy ride of “Jessica Jones,” saying it?s taken four years to get the show going. ?It?s an extraordinary payoff.?
Loeb said that Moriarty couldn?t talk much about her character, but the actress said that since she?d worked with Melissa Rosenberg before, she was with a work family. “It was a nice feeling going into it; I primarily worked with Krysten and Carrie-Anne, these strong kick-ass women playing amazing roles. I was just happy to be a part of a show like this, telling this story. It was amazing,? reported Comic Book Resources.
According to Screen Rant, the Jessica Jones pilot has largely received glowing reviews, with many praising Krysten Ritter?s turn as the titular superhero-turned-private investigator, the actress?s chemistry with co-star Mike Colter (fellow superhero Luke Cage, whose own Netflix series will debut in 2016), the dark tone of the series and its exceptional cinematography. Jessica Jones also stars Carrie-Anne Moss as the recently announced female iteration of Marvel Comics character Jeryn Hogarth, and David Tennant as Kilgrave a.k.a. The Purple Man, both of whom received appreciation for their parts in the premiere as well.
Here are some of the reactions for the fans.

Tennant’s Killgrave and Ritter’s Jessica have a twisted ? and traumatizing ? relationship, but “David Tennant is magic,? Ritter shared. ?His performance, his range, he could be funny and then incredibly vulnerable.?
The presentation concluded with a surprise for fans ? the screening of the full Jessica Jones pilot, nearly a month before its launch on Netflix, stated Hollywood Reporter.
