Jessica Jones has been in development for years, so when Marvel announced that it was among the shows being brought to Netflix, fans were overjoyed that the character would finally be getting the live-action treatment. Based on early reviews, it’s going to be well worth the wait, and a new promo clip and images have surfaced today via the online streaming service to whet our appetite even further.
While Jessica Jones may not be as well-known as Daredevil, there are a long list of reasons to be excited for the series, and the character’s battle with Purple Man looks set to be just as compelling as the Man Without Fear taking on The Kingpin. Whether or not Jessica is going to end up meeting Daredevil at some point in her series is a mystery, but here’s hoping.
Krysten Ritter plays the titular hero, and she’ll be joined by Rachel Taylor as Trish Walker (a.k.a. Hellcat), Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and David Tennant as the villainous Killgrave/ Purple Man. All thirteen episodes of the series are set to premiere on the online streaming service on November 20th.
