“Marvel’s Jessica Jones” will make some room for romance inbetween fighting evil and drinking too much. The new Netflix drama follows Jessica, a former superhero, as she opens her private investigations office and has to face a villain that can control minds. The first trailer for the Netflix drama highlighted her tortured past and drinking problem, but a newly-released second trailer shows that Jessica (Krysten Ritter) has a little bit of romance in her life.
The promo video starts off with her drinking in Luke Cage’s (Mike Colter) bar. “A lot of booze for such a small woman,” Luke says.
“I don’t get asked on a lot of second dates,” she tells him.
Luke isn’t just her bartender though. He quickly figures out that Jessica has powers after she gets into a fight with one of his customers, and she tells him about her past. She explains Zebediah Killgrave’s (David Tennant) ability to control minds.
“You don’t have to face him alone,” Luke says.
“Yeah I do,” she tells him. Jessica doesn’t want him to get hurt.
That doesn’t mean Luke will leave her alone though. “You are a hard-drinking, short-fused mess of a woman,” Luke tells her before the trailer cuts to a sex scene. Much like Netflix and Marvel’s first joint venture, “Daredevil,” it doesn’t look like this is a family-friendly superhero show.
Of course, “Jessica Jones” Season 1 isn’t just about the romance. The main storyline is Jessica going after Killgrave, a.k.a. the Purple Man, and the new trailer highlights just how dangerous he is. Viewers see him making people jump off of buildings and forcing Jessica’s friend Trish (Rachael Taylor) to put a gun to her head.
Killgrave points out that Jessica won’t kill him. “You won’t because you don’t know what will happen when I die,” the villain says after Jessica claims she could take his life.
She needs to find another way to take him out of power. Jeryn (Carrie-Anne Moss), an attorney, explains that Jessica will have to prove his mind control powers exist, so she might be trying to put him in prison. However, she’ll have to figure out how to convince authorities that he is a super-powered villain first.
