Although fans of Marvel and Netflix’s connected superhero universe is rapidly becoming one of the most fan-beloved properties for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), fans have yet to see any actual footage from the newest series, "Jessica Jones." Still, that doesn’t mean viewers can’t see Marvel’s newest female superhero, Jessica Jones, in action ahead of her debut.
As previously reported, the Netflix series announced its Nov. 20 premiere date with a highly cinematic teaser trailer showing images of New York City's Hell’s Kitchen through a purple filter of smoke, perhaps a nod to her principal villain, The Purple Man (David Tennant). Since then, the show has teased both a wake up montage and a post-bar brawl montage to get people excited for the upcoming companion series to “Daredevil.” Now, a new teaser shows the retired superhero getting home after, what looks like, a pretty long night. Luckily, she doesn’t have to bother with keys as she’s able to simply fly up the fire escape.
Although it’s only 49 seconds long, and stylistically mirrors a "Daredevil" promo, there’s a surprising amount to unpack in the brief teaser trailer. The first is the advertisement on a bus stop that can be seen in the distance. As SlashFilm notes, this is a sign trying to get people to listen to “Trish Talk,” which is hosted by Jessica Jones’ (Krysten Ritter) best friend Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor).
After the superhero turned private investigator surveys the streets of Hell’s Kitchen for a moment, she leaps up several stories onto the balcony of a nearby building. The sign on the dirty old window reads “Alias Investigations,” which comic books fans will know is the P.I. business Jones opens up after retiring from her career as a superhero. An eagle-eye at Entertainment Weekly even spotted the outline of Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) Avengers Tower in the background.
All 13 episodes of Marvel and Netflix’s “Jessica Jones” will drop on the popular streaming service Nov. 20. Will you be tuning in? Comment below or tweet your thoughts to @TylerMcCarthy.
