10 female Marvel superheroes that deserve the Hollywood treatment
Here are ten Marvel ladies ready to leap from the page to the screen
Spider-Woman - Guest Star on "AKA Jessica Jones" on Netflix
This might be a bit complex since all things "Spider" are being handled over at Sony, but maybe if Marvel simply refers to the original Spider-Woman as Jessica Drew, perhaps the master spy turned private eye turned Avenger could become a regular on Netflix's "AKA Jessica Jones" series. Drew's past is deeply tied to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra, making her fit seamlessly into the world of super espionage. Brian Michael Bendis used Drew to great effect in the pages of "Alias," on which the series is based, as Jessica Jones' confidant and friend. She doesn't even have to don her costume or call herself Spider-Woman; loyal fans already know who she is and her history is enough to make Jessica Drew a fascinating character ripe for media exploitation -- even without the codename. There's so much depth to Jessica Drew that fans will ask, "What's in a name?"
