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.
The trailer for season two of Netflix’s hit show, Marvel’s Daredevil, teases the arrival of Elektra and The Punisher. It’s moody, intense and intriguing – and looks to be every bit as involving as season one.
Check it out after the jump. Marvel’s Daredevil returns in 2016.
Marvel’s Daredevil was one of the best new shows of the last year, melding action superheroics with Martin Scorsese darkness and flair.
Marvel’s Joe Quesada has, once again, produced the first concept art for DD season two and it’s sneaky clever – highlighting both major Marvel characters who will appear in the new season. Check it out after the jump.
