It’s Jessica Jones vs. the Purple Man in new Netflix trailer

Senior Television Writer

Like all of their releases, Marvel has been slowly teasing the November 20 debut of the “Jessica Jones” series on Netflix. Today, it's time for a full-length trailer, which provides an extended glimpse of Krysten Ritter in the title role, as a washed-out superhero who now works as a private eye. In the trailer, we also get to see her meet Mike Colter as Luke Cage (who will be the star of Netflix's next Marvel series after this one) and get a sense of how badly Jessica was traumatized by her encounter with David Tennant as Zebediah Killgrave, aka the mind-controlling Purple Man.

It doesn't have the world-weary banter of the original Brian Michael Bendis-written Jessica Jones comic “Alias,” but perhaps that's something that's just not easily conveyed in a trailer.
