‘Jessica Jones’ Teaser Previews What Lies Ahead For Marvel’s First Leading Lady.

Million Dollar Baby actor Mike Colter with play superhero Luke Cage, while Rachael Taylor, who previously appeared in Transformers, has been cast as Jessica’s best friend Trish Walker. Following the premiere of last spring’s “Daredevil,” which follows the Marvel superhero of the same name, the show “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” debuts this November.AFTER THE successful debut of Hells Kitchen’s man without fear, “Daredevil,” Marvel and Netflix have announced when fans can dive into another superhero binge, by teasing the debut of Jessica Jones. “Jessica Jones,” starring Krysten Ritter as the title character, is the second act of Marvel’s four-show deal with Netflix (Luke Cage and Iron Fist are the others) that will conclude with the lead character of each show uniting to form “The Defenders.” Think of them as street-level Avengers.

The mysterious 54-second-long clip appears to give viewers clues to the plot of the series, and features almost psychedelic, multi-coloured depictions of a camera lens, a glass of liquid tipping over, and a dead body. And though we don’t get any show footage from the 13-episode series, we’re treated to scads of glass shards (perhaps a symbol of Jones’s short and not sweet time as a superhero), as well as a quick shot of a door that says “Alias Investigative” — a nod not only to the Brian Michael Bendis-penned comics from Marvel starring Jones, but also to her role on the show as a detective. (Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos introduced Jessica Jones in 2001’s Alias No. 1.

Since the show comes from Marvel comic books, Jessica lives in the same fictional universe as Iron Man, Captain America, and Daredevil, with whom she shares a streaming home. In the teaser trailer, as the Of Monsters and Men’s song “Thousand Eyes” drones with haunting beauty, we are awash in blurred purples and oranges that are true to Alias cover artist David Mack and his liquid tints.

David Tennant, Carrie-Anne Moss and Rachael Taylor also make appearances during the 13-episode run (Tennant’s voice can be heard during the teaser, if you listen closely enough). As for the rollout of these characters: Marvel’s next Netflix hero, Mike Colter (starring as Luke Cage), will get plenty of screen time in this series, as will David Tennant (who will play series bad guy Kilgrave). The impressionistic teaser offers clues for what viewers can expect from the series: A camera shutter, identifying her current career; a spilled glass of booze, doing the same for her current state of sobriety. The streaming service debuted “Daredevil,” which stars Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, this past spring and it was fairly well-received by critics.

Yet given the success of “Daredevil,” Netfilx has proved that its platform works well with Marvel — at least well enough to springboard Jessica Jones before the eyes on many potential converts. The Nov. 20 premiere date means that Jessica Jones will go head-to-head with another long-awaited genre show streaming online: Amazon’s adaptation of the Philip K. At the TCA press tour in July, Rosenberg told TV critics: ” ‘Jessica Jones’ is a very different show from ‘Daredevil.’ We exist in a cinematic universe.

Planning four shows at a time is obviously a daring move – you have no idea how the first one will be received. “Daredevil” was well-received by viewers, but Netflix is different than network TV in how a success or failure is perceived. Because the company doesn’t release viewership numbers, the public doesn’t know how popular “Daredevil is.” We know if a show like “Agent Carter” is doing well in terms of viewers (the ratings are okay); we have no official measurement from Netflix.
