Marvel announces ‘Jessica Jones’ Netflix premiere date with new teaser video
We’re just two months away from seeing Jessica Jones in action.
Jessica Jones is the tale of a former-superhero-turned-private investigator that stars Krysten Ritter as the title character, Mike Colter as her love interest Luke Cage (who will also be getting his own Netflix series next year), and David Tennant as the villain Kilgrave.
This teaser doesn’t show any footage from the show, but it does give us a hint of a modern noir tone, along with a reference to Jones’s office, Alias Investigations. All 13 episodes of the series will premiere on Netflix on Nov. 20 this year.
Marvel’s partnership with Netflix began in April when with a ten-episode first season of Daredevil. The series met with critical acclaim, and a second season is planned for 2016.
After Jessica Jones, the next Marvel–Netflix show will star Luke Cage, followed by the second season of Daredevil, an Iron Fist series, and a team-up miniseries, Defenders, in which the four New York City superheroes join forces to form the Defenders.
By the way, the song in this teaser video is “Thousand Eyes” by Of Monsters And Men. You now have two and a half months to analyze its lyrics and figure out why it’s an appropriate choice for Jessica Jones.
