Whether or not Marvel actually has the movie rights to the Spider-Woman name (because of Sony's ComicBook/SpiderMan movie franchise) is unclear, but given their recent deal to introduce Spidey in the MCU, it's not outside of the realm of possibility.

* Umm, are you forgetting all the other stuff Trish did? She manipulated and assaulted Malcolm, stalked and kidnapped Dr. Malus for purely selfish reasons rather than actually stopping him and his experiments. She then threatened Malcolm with a gun. All of this stemmed from being jealous of Jessica, not wanting to protect her best friend/sister, but to be loved and admired rather than out of true altruism. Outside of this, Trish constantly pushed Jessica to do heroic deeds to live vicariously through her, and is also a hypocrite in that she was more sympathetic to Simpson, a man she slept with, for being a killer due to what he went through, than Alisa, who arguably went through an even more traumatic experience but was still at least trying to keep herself from hurting people despite her clear mental illness. I could see where you're coming from to some extent if Trish felt that [[IDidWhatIHadToDo she had no choice but to kill Alisa]] and understood why Jessica had complex feeling regarding her enough to recognize that she wouldn't be happy about it, but she wasn't that way at all. Not only did Trish not apologize, she acted like it was no big deal, if anything at all. Heck, Trish didn't apologize to anyone for anything she did throughout the season.

* Is "token good guy" you're way of describing a superhero? That's what Hellcat is in the comics. I mean, I get where you're coming from, but they changed the character ''a lot'', right down to what her preferred name is.

Before she goes through with it though, she'll find a way to screw over everybody she deemed an annoyance in her life as a "last hurrah". What may result from this is up in the air, considering what happens next season or in the second season of ''Iron Fist.'' Dark and assuredly audience alienating as it may be, this show has tackled enough controversial material in the past that they might address suicide this way. They certainly wouldn't glamorize it, so they could just make it work. I just don't see them actually showing Jeri succumb to ALS as a subplot for Season 3.

Giving Trish powers while taking Jessica's away could be an interesting thing to play with, carrying forward the ideas of what makes a hero from season 2. One of the more effective things about season 1 had been how constrained Jessica was. She had super powers, but they were pretty limited in effectiveness against Kilgrave because his powers were ones that her physical strength was ineffective against. It created a genuine threat in an interesting way, which is often missing from super hero shows.

Jessica will have to find ally in her pursuit to stop Luke Cage, which may include Misty Knight who also wants to stop Luke, Colleen Wing since she now has the Iron Fist that could put a dent in Luke bullet-proof skin, or Trish Walker whom Jessica learns that she just got powers and will have to set their differences aside to work together in defeating Luke.

[[WMG: Luke Cage will be the next foe Jessica Jones will have to face]]
Jessica will either learn from Claire Temple or Misty Knight that Luke has become a crime boss, and given how close Luke was to Jessica, she will be upset to learn about this. She'll confront Luke and call him out on his decision to become a crime lord, only for Luke to retort back saying that Jessica doesn't have the moral high ground given the stuff that she has done, such as killing Luke's wife and Kilgrave. Their conflicting morals will cause them to go after each other with Jessica believing Luke is dangerous and needs to be stop, and Luke believing Jessica doesn't have what it takes to do what is necessary and will only get in his way.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:Trish as a vigilante]]
Trish will become a very naive vigilante, costume and all, after realizing that she has powers. She'll quickly understand that it's not all sunshine and rainbows, and it will force her to reflect on her actions and mistakes in Season 2 and consult someone. At the same time, her second life will interfere with whatever Dorothy has planned for her which will lead to a heated argument between them when Trish will finally understand just what a monster her mother is and will disown her.


[[WMG:Trish ''won't'' be a threat in season 3]]
Or at the very least, she'll be a starter threat wherein she clashes with Jessica for a bit, but then they put their differences aside and work together to take down a new threat. Having Trish be the main threat of season 3 would just be a rehash of a lot of the drama we saw in season 2, and it's time for Jessica to have an antagonist who isn't someone she has a personal connection to.

to:

[[WMG:Trish ''won't'' won't be a threat villain in season 3]]
Or Trish being a villain? I don't see it happening. Hellcat is a token "good guy" in the comics. More realistic would be Trish quitting her talk show and trying to be a vigilante. We know Trish wants to get in on the true media, get involved in real news like Karen Page does. It's more likely that Trish is gonna be the catalyst for ''Jessica Jones'' to turn into ''The Pulse''. I don't see Trish joining Karen at the very least, she'll ''Bulletin'', and since Netflix wants to keep things original, it's more likely that Trish will try to open up her own newspaper as a front for collecting local superhumans and trying to get them to be heroes (which would be an homage to what Hellcat actually does in the comics). The show is really good at doing the whole "mash-together cool things and wind up with something unique" sorta thing.

And as Hellcat is
a starter threat wherein she clashes token "good guy", it wouldn't make sense for Trish to evolve into a villain. All of the character development of season 2 means a lot, but I don't see Jessica rejecting Trish. Obviously, Jessica and Trish's relationship will show a huge bump at the beginning of season 3 as a result of the fallout of season 2, but it ''must'' end with Jessica for a bit, but then they put their differences aside and work together to take down a new threat. Having forgiving Trish. They are sisters; demonizing Trish be the main threat of season 3 would or turning her into a villain likely will just be seem like a rehash rehashing of a lot of the drama we saw in season 2, Season 2. Not to mention that this show is about girl power, and it's time for Jessica demonizing a fan favorite like Trish seems like a hardcore route to have an antagonist who isn't someone she has a personal connection to. misogyny.

[[WMG:Jessica will spend part of the season without her powers]]
How interesting would it be if we went through a three episode arc or so where Jessica was without her powers? I know this concept has been used before where a super-powered individual loses their abilities, but I think it would be a little fascinating to see this explored on a character like Jessica Jones.

[[WMG: Trish will be the overall threat of Season 3]]


But yeah, Trish was mostly in the right here. Whether Jessica comes around to it or Trish makes her, they can't live without each other.

But yeah, Trish was mostly in the right here. Whether Jessica comes around to it or Trish makes her, they can't live without each other. Like Kilgrave has said before, Jessica only cares and has Trish. Not to mention, Trish hates her own mother and only feels safe/comfort around Jessica.

So it won't be a head to head for Jessica vs. Trish, but there will be some conflict between the two. It is bound to happen as Rachael Taylor has said this show revolves around the friendship of Trish and Jessica but also shows that their friendship is not always perfect yet it's still a friendship that means very much to those two.

It won't entirely result in a Defenders-style teamup. I see them working together, but Jessica is very protective of Trish. Even if Trish has powers, Jessica will still be very protective and not wanting Trish in danger. That would make working together very complicated. Not to mention Trish is going to get a costume because she is Trish, and Jessica will probably keep making comments at the stupidity of it just like she made fun of Matt's costume.

So what will exactly happen? I think that they will team up yet at the same time, go head to head in their own ways. Not to mention Jessica has to still accept Trish back into her life as Trish literally shot herself out of it.

[[WMG:Jessica won't stay mad at Trish forever]]

Alisa came into this show as some crazed serial killer which we all then learned is really Jessica's mother. At first Jessica was very "I still need to put you away" state of mind, even if it was her mother which I was shocked about. I thought Jessica would instantly be ready to re-connect, yet I was happy she was sticking to her grounds. But as she talks to Alisa more, she loses that state of mind.

It's very understandable to why she did. I mean, 17 years without her mother and all the sudden she appears. Anyone would be curious and not want your mother arrested so quickly. So she hides her away until Cheng convinces her she has to call the police. Jessica gets her right state of mind back and has her mother arrested. But she visits her in jail a lot. Even brings in Jeri to help her get a better deal.

As we watch Jessica connect with Alisa more, we see a different side of Jessica. A more confused version. Usually we know Jessica to be confident and smart in bad moments, but she starts to slow down. Then she kills Dale because her mother basically convinced her to. Also her mom was proud she did what she did which Jessica never wanted to kill anyone (except Kilgrave, but that was special circumstances). Alisa turns her into this whole other person to the point we flash forward and they are running away together.

Here is where Trish comes into play. If anyone knows Jessica best, it is going to be Trish Walker. The one person accepted into the mind of Jessica Jones and the one person who Jessica Jones actually loves and cares for. Now, Trish would know Jessica wouldn't just leave her. Hell, Jessica says it to Alisa how "I'm not leaving Trish" before her mother brainwashes her intro running away with her. Trish knew Jessica's entire life was on the line, but Jessica was too blinded by the fact her mom was back to see it.

And from Trish's limited knowledge, there were two ways this could've ended: Option A) the cops shoot Jessica down along with Alisa, or Option B) Jessica gets arrested for being an accomplice to a major serial killer. She serves time and gets more fucked up mentally and loses her private investigator's license.

Yet, Jessica couldn't see those two options at all because all she saw was that she had her mom back. It isn't her fault. Detective Costa even pointed out that anyone would do that if they just got their mom back. That being said, Trish took the third option and killed Alisa, saving Jessica's life.

Now comes my point into where Jessica and Trish will not be mad at each other forever. Well, more Jessica being mad at Trish rather then Trish being mad at Jessica. Jessica easily could have hurt or killed Trish right there at the park right after the shooting, but she didn't. She told Trish to run, then returned to the ferris wheel bucket and waited there for the cops to arrive. She cares too much for Trish and like it or not, Oscar will never be able to be enough for Jessica like Trish was. And Jessica and Trish have been through hell and back together, first with Stirling's death and Trish's drug addictions, and then working together to defeat Kilgrave. They both admit to feeling alone without the other. Hell, Trish and Malcolm had sex then afterwards Trish couldn't stop thinking about Jessica.

But yeah, Trish was mostly in the right here. Whether Jessica comes around to it or Trish makes her, they can't live without each other.
