Marvel Comics is headed back to the neighborhood that helped birth so many of its famous characters and story lines of yore. Back to the roots of Jack Kirby – born at 147 Essex Street – whose superhero creations included Captain America, X-Men, and the Incredible Hulk.
The comic book company teamed up with Netflix to create a new series called AKA Jessica Jones. It’s been filming around the city that past couple months under the guise of a production named “Violet.” Today, the activity reaches the Bowery and its adjacent neighborhood of Little Italy.
AKA Jessica Jones focuses on a character who, “after a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.”
