Marvel and Netflix have released the first official poster for “AKA Jessica Jones“. AKA is the second Netflix series of four planned to debut this year and next (Luke Cage and Iron Fist being the others). Daredevil has already been renewed for a second season and it will return in 2016 as well. AKA is based off of the comic series Alias by Brian Michael Bendis (who posted this picture via his Twitter; and is also listed on the writing credits for all 13 episodes) and it is BY FAR the most mature material that Marvel has brought into the MCU. The series starts Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones and will debut on Netflix later this year. DD set a high bar; lets hope the other series can match it.

The runners-up are both new franchises introducing characters not exactly A-list on the public consciousness with Black Panther and Dr. Strange, which bodes well for the future of the whole enterprise. Thanks for everyone who voted, and we’ll have another poll up next week!
Another bit of mystery surrounding Star Wars Episode VII has been revealed as today Lucasfilm released the name and a mo-cap image of Andy Serkis on the Episode VII set. Serkis will be playing a character called “Supreme Leader Snoke”, and no one called “Supreme Leader” is ever a good guy. Is this guy in the remnants of the Emprire? Is this who Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) answers to? December 18, 2015, still seems like a long, long ways away. Further details from Coming Soon below.
