You’ve seen her be a complete bad girl in ‘Breaking Bad,’ but Krysten Ritter is really ready to defend her city in Marvel’s latest Netflix show, ‘Jessica Jones.’ And the first trailer proves you definitely don’t want to mess with her!
We thought the first photos for Marvel’s Jessica Jones had us in awe of Krysten Ritter, but this trailer takes us to a whole new realm. For those of you who don’t read the comics, Jessica Jones gives up her life to start investigating, and using her superheroes to help — including being able to jump insanely high and being really strong. You can see ] a lot of that in the trailer.
In the new trailer, we also meet Kilgrave/Purple Man, the villain played bye Doctor Who‘s David Tennant, Luke Cage, played by The Good Wife‘s Mike Colter, Trish Walker, AKA Hellcat, played bye Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty and Wil Traval. Following the show, Luke will head over to his own, Luke Cage series.
In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Krysten revealed she never had been into comic books before now. “I wasn’t, but I am now reading the Jessica Jones comics and devouring them,” she said. “And [I’m] hooked. I don’t think I’ve been so hooked on something since Serial. So now I feel that way about the Jessica Jones series. I can’t wait. I mean, as soon as we’re done today, that’s what I am going to be doing. I’m really excited about Jessica Jones. It’s so fucking cool. It’s so cool. I can’t wait to watch it.”
The show will be run by a woman, Melissa Rosenberg, which is something that’s extremely important to Krysten. “It’s crazy, because I remember, like, six years ago, I was like, ‘I just want to work with female directors and female showrunners; there’s none.’ And I feel like, since then, I’ve exclusively worked with women, which I love. I worked with Amy Heckerling, Kat [Coiro], Jessica Goldberg, Leslye Headland, Nahnatchka Khan, the creator of Don’t Trust the B–, who is my idol and bar for anything funny. And now Melissa! It’s a dream come true.”
Marvel’s Jessica Jones will air all 13 episodes on Netflix on Nov. 20! Are you excited?
