‘What are you? How did you end up like this? Are you going to kill me?’ Jessica Jones reiterates questions she’s most asked in a flat, disinterested voice.
This new behind-the-scenes look at Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season Two explores the characters – their growth/lack of same, and their attempts to find their place in the world – not in terms of superherodom, but as people.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season Two premieres on Netflix on International Women’s Day, Thursday, March 8th.
Just when Jessica Jones thought she could put Kilgrave behind her and move on with her life, a new case makes her reluctantly confront who she really is while digging deeper into her past to explore the reasons why.
Netflix has released the first teaser photograph for Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season 2. It’s dark and bit spooky.
The proliferation of quality genre projects – Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comics – that are available on TV have grown almost exponentially over the last few years. And while there are networks that are geared specifically to genre TV, a great deal of quality stuff can be found on the broadcast networks, the future of the Movie Box is here!
This year, I’ve decided to place genre offerings on a separate list just to highlight how much good stuff is out there for fans of every genre. So, from The Doctor to Jessica Jones, from Supergirl to the Winchesters, follow the jump to my first annual Favorite Fifteen for Genre TV.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones is quite possibly the best entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. The series’ first season is liberally sprinkled with the kind of plot and dialogue you might find in the best work of Dashiell Hammett or Philip Chandler – and seasoned with the kind of problematic superheroic action of a Stan Lee (though the actual use of powers is not as overt, for the most part, as with Netflix’s Daredevil series).
Jones is a former superhero (it ended badly for her) who has taken to working as a private investigator in Hell’s Kitchen. She is touchy, tough, paranoid and suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. She can’t stop herself from trying to help innocents who are in trouble, but she hides those impulses under snark, cynicism and a bottle of Wild Turkey (or some other equally vile concoction). If there was a poster person for Damaged Goods Hero, she would be on it.
Only a few days remain until the premiere of season one of Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix, so now’s the perfect time for the release of a trailer that gives us a look at season one’s bad guy, Kilgrave.
David Tennant makes Kilgrave charming and more than a little creepy in the trailer – which is titled All In. Check it out after the jump. Marvel’s Jessica Jones premieres on November 20th.
