A Newer, Creepier Trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones
The comic was called Alias...at a time when there was a TV show called Alias...probably not the most inspired choice. This being the case, a lot of people passed over the book without even a backward glance...unless I yelled at them about how amazing it is until they were sick of hearing me gush. When Marvel Studios picked their grittiest band of heroes to bring to Netflix, it was clear, Jessica Jones' time had come. Now..the first trailer was pretty bad ass. It gave you all the beats to pick up the story, but didn't really convey the stakes...to a new audience or to fans of the comic. Would they make her one of the first Avengers wash outs to bring her closer to her comic book roots? Would they even touch on the horrific ways Jessica was violated, making her the broken woman she is when we meet her? Today, a new trailer has dropped fleshing out exactly why you should be afraid of a comic book character with a ridiculous name like "The Purple Man"!
After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a private detective in Hell's Kitchen. It's time the world knew her name... Hit Netflix Friday, November 20 at 12:01 p.m. PT!
