I am loving all the Marvel action we are getting at the moment. It’s all gone a little quiet on the movie front (only Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant Man this year – whaatt?!), but boy is Marvel keeping us entertained on the small screen. Competing with DC’s Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Supergirl and soon to come Legend’s of Tomorrow, Marvel has released a trailer for its next Netflix partnership, Jessica Jones.
Now this is another character I’m not overly familiar with, I was always more of a DC kid, but firmly have one leg either side of the fence since Iron Man. But, the synopsis reads; After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City.
It has a great cast line up, with Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, (the comedic genius from Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23) along with David Tennant (Doctor Who) and The Matrix legend, Carrie-Anne Moss.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones is the second of four epic live-action adventure series (Marvel’s Daredevil, which is now streaming, Marvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron Fist, all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders) to premiere only on Netflix. It is a suspenseful, edgy look into the life of Jessica Jones, one of the most popular new Marvel characters of the last decade, as she faces demons from within and without. The drama will premiere with thirteen (13) one-hour episodes.
We’ve already seen Daredevil reference the crisis in New York (Avengers), we know Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. has perfectly connected to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as Avengers: Age of Ultron. And who could forget Agent Carter, a spin off from Captain America, which also linked to Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Well with all of these new shows launching, surely there needs to be more cross over between the superheroes? Well the top dogs at Marvel say it is inevitable. This is one point where I think Marvel is winning in the superhero battle against DC. Warner Bros is very much keeping its TV and film franchises separate, even if the TV shows are crossing over so well. But with The Flash appearing in his own TV series, and another one on the Justice League movies, I think that is just confusing fans.
Check out the trailer for Jessica Jones now. Jessica Jones will premiere on 20th November in Ultra HD (just what I need for my lovely 4K TV, and it’s the day after my birthday, lucky me!).
