As promised, Marvel and Netflix gave us our first trailer to it’s new show, Jessica Jones, which debuts on November 20th. Jessica Jones is the second show in a larger 5-part “Defenders” series. All of the shows in the series will be released exclusively on Netflix. The first four shows will feature their own superhero in the Marvel Universe and the fifth show will be a crossover in which the heroes unite to form a team known as The Defenders.

When Marvel announced that actress Krysten Ritter would be playing Jessica Jones they gave a brief premise of what the show would be about:

“After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.”

Jessica Jones is played by Krysten Ritter. David Tennant will play the main villain in the show Killgrave/ The Purple Man. Luke Cage, who is a love interest of Jessica Jones, was also featured in the trailer and he will be played by Mike Colter. After the release of Jessica Jones, Mike Colter will be featured in his own Netflix series titled Luke Cage next year.

Note* The Netflix shows in the series have a darker tone than the Marvel movies that are released in theaters and the Marvel TV shows that are featured on ABC. These shows are not suitable for children.

The trailer is dark and shows how the villain, KillGrave, uses mind control to wreak havoc in the city as Jessica Jones is haunted by her past.

Check out the trailer below:

    I am shocked that Disney would go this far to promote the Devil, murder and just all around evil. Iger is afraid of the reaction to re-releasing the Song of the South. I hope and expect a very bad reaction from people who are good, kind and looking for fun. This is not entertainment. This is pandering to evil and will be a terrible example for girls.

    While the darker fare may not be to your taste, they’ve made it quite clear these series aren’t for people who watch Disney movies, or for kids. These are for people who want to see what The Godfather or Silence of the Lambs or any film in the horror genre would be like in a world of superpowers. Don’t forget this is the same studio that brought you Ghost Rider, although they camped up the movie a fair bit.

    Now, whether it’s any good or not in that role, the future will have to judge. Personally, I couldn’t finish daredevil because the cinematography was too dark and monotonous… I grew up on the 70’s/80’s comic book, and while the story was somewhat dark, the panels alternated between dark and vibrant.

    Loved Daredevil. Looking forward to seeing this one, too. All for adult entertainment on Netflix. Check out Sense 8, if you want some great TV that is not suitable for children.

    I almost couldn’t finish Daredevil because of the dark cinematography and slow pace but SO glad I did. The pace picked up and I ended up really loving the last episodes. You should give it another try!

    I think Jessica Jones looks good. I’m not into horror but I don’t mind when the superhero genre explores a grittier story line.
