“Marvel’s Jessica Jones” makes its much-anticipated Netflix debut on Nov. 20, and as Variety critic Mo Ryan notes in her review, the series is “not just a contender for the title of Best Marvel-related TV Property; in a supremely crowded TV scene, it is one of the year’s most distinctive new dramas.” That assessment is thanks, in large part, to Krysten Ritter’s performance as the show’s titular heroine, a prickly, damaged and deeply conflicted private eye who nonetheless manages to radiate wit and charisma, even when she’s at her most antagonistic. The series is based on writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos’ “Alias” comic book series, with Melissa Rosenberg serving as showrunner.

“Jessica Jones” is following in “Daredevil’s” footsteps as the latest Marvel superhero to find a home on Netflix. In the series, Krysten Ritter stars as an ex-superhero who’s left that life behind following a personal tragedy. But she hasn’t given up kicking ass full time, as her current line of work — private investigator — still requires it from time to time. While Ritter has been known for more comedic roles on shows like ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B- in Apartment 23” in the past, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said her comedy chops actually made her a more perfect fit for the. »

Tired of having too much TV to choose between? Dizzy from the metric tons of content Netflix constantly drops onto your screen? Too bad! “Jessica Jones,” the newest addition to both the Netflix oeuvre and the Marvel Universe canon, will kick down your door tomorrow, Nov. 20. Created by screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and based on the notorious Marvel Comics character of the same name, the series stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica, disgraced superhero and current alcoholic-detective. As fans of “Breaking Bad,” “Veronica Mars,” and especially “Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23” know, Ritter’s singular gifts are perfectly suited for a sassy superhero drama that—if rumors are to be believed—marks Netflix’s darkest original series to date. Don’t miss Ritter, Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, and David Tennant as the show’s big bad. It’s sure to be a kickass weekend. Inspired by this post? »
A full trailer for "Marvel's Jessica Jones" has landed, and it begins with the eponymous character telling us, "A big part of the job is looking for the worst in people. Turns out I excel at that." Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter, "Big Eyes," "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23") isn't exactly the kind of superhero most parents want their kids to dress up as on Halloween. She's not the optimistic sort who defends humanity despite all of the evil she encounters. Rather, she's very much bogged down by that evil and has taken to drinking as a form of self-medication. She works as a P.I. because "booze costs money." Jessica's superpowers are undeniable, but so is her cynicism. And who can fault her for so readily recognizing the worst in people, especially when her powers have been used against her will? Kilgrave, another super-inclined individual, used mind control »

Marvel’s foray into television is set to continue. With Agents of Shield returning for its third season earlier this year, and Agent Carter renewed for a second season, the comics conglomerate saw heir deal with Netflix begin to bear fruit earlier this year with the release of Daredevil. The company is not sitting back, however, as both series will have a companion in November in the form of Jessica Jones.
The newest television superhero series sees Breaking Bad and Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23‘s Krysten Ritter step into the titular role. The series is created by Birds of Prey and Dexter writer Melissa Rosenberg, and co-stars David Tennant, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Rachael Taylor, with Mike Colter also appearing in the series as Luke Cage prior to getting his own series, which is next in the line in the Netflix-Marvel collaboration. With a number of teasers »

With not long to go until its release on Friday the 20th of November, here's the first full trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones...
Set in the same corner of New York's Hell's Kitchen as Daredevil (quite possibly the same building, even), Jessica Jones sees Breaking Bad and Don't Trust The B- In Apartment 23 alum Krysten Ritter step into the title role as Marvel's latest super-powered protagonist. This one comes with a twist, though - Jessica has hung up her superhero costume and decided to carve out a career as a private detective instead.
The reasons for this decision will surely be unfurled over the course of the 13-episode season, which lands in its entirety on Netflix on Friday the 20th of November. »
Netflix has been releasing a ton of teasers ahead of the launch of its all new Marvel series Jessica Jones, and while none of them have featured actual footage from the show, they’ve all been different and unique in their own way. The latest promo from the streaming giant is actually a motion poster of Jessica, as the different dark colors come together to paint her face, along with the series’ logo, in a quick, 16-second video. Does it reveal anything new about the show? No, but it’s still incredibly cool to look at. Plus, Netflix also announced that we can expect the first, full trailer for Jessica Jones (which will certainly reveal some things) this Friday, Oct. 23. Marvel’s Jessica Jones stars Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23‘s Krysten Ritter as the titular hero, Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as Kilgrave, and The Good Wife »

Here's everything you need to know about the hard-drinking superhero and the shows that are coming after her.
All 13 episodes of Jessica Jones season one will land on Netflix on November 20.
Who is Jessica Jones?
Marvel Comics superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis created Jessica Jones for the adult-oriented comic Alias, which had nothing to do with Jennifer Garner. Jones, who gained powers after a classic chemical spill that also left her an orphan, was retconned into continuity with a backstory tying into the past of various iconic superheroes.
She was cast as a classmate of Peter Parker's (hell, she even had a crush on him) and was inspired by his crimefighting as Spider-Man to become a superhero too - taking on the identity of Jewel. Yes, Jewel. »
For those who have been waiting -- and waiting and waiting and waiting -- for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to give us a queer female character, the wait is finally over. Over the weekend, Netflix screened the pilot episode of its upcoming series “Jessica Jones” during a panel at New York Comic-Con. Reports from those in attendance indicate the show will give us the first on-screen lesbian character in all of Marvel’s film and television franchises, and also quite possibly the first queer leading female character in Jessica herself. Can I get a huzzah? The show stars Krysten Ritter (most recently of “Don’t Trust the B---- In Apartment 23” fame) as the titular Jessica Jones, an ex-superhero who now works as a private investigator in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen. Netflix has been tight-lipped about details of the show, other than it will also star “The Matrix” trilogy alum Carrie-Anne Moss, »

Daredevil was easily one of the most pleasant surprises of 2015, as the show got Netflix and Marvel’s line of superhero dramas off to an impressive start. Netflix’s second Marvel series, Jessica Jones, which stars Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23) as Jessica Jones, David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Kilgrave, and Mike Colter (The Good Wife) as Luke Cage, will finally makes its debut on the streaming giant in November, and that has many Marvel fanatics excited. However, what might be even more highly anticipated is the second season of Daredevil, which will hit Netflix next year and introduce two very well-known characters to the McU: Elektra (played by Elodie Young) and Frank Castle, aka The Punisher (The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal). This weekend at New York Comic-Con, those in attendance for the joint Daredevil and Jessica Jones panel weren’t only treated to »

“Jessica Jones, I know everything.” The latest teaser for Marvel’s Jessica Jones still only gives us footage of Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23) as our titular heroine. However, it also introduces (at least the voice, anyway) the Big Bad of the Netflix series’ first season: Kilgrave, who will be played by Doctor Who‘s David Tennant. The video below, which like the many other teasers before it, runs for about 40 seconds, shows us Jessica in her apartment putting together the pieces of some type of conspiracy or case, with Kilgrave narrating the action. “Jessica, I know your secrets,” he growls. “I know about your friends, about your gifts…” In just the little time we hear Tennant’s voice as Kilgrave, he makes one thing clear: there will be none of the fun energy or humor that he brought to Doctor Who in this character. »

It’s 11:57 p.m. in Hell’s Kitchen, and as this new teaser for Marvel’s Jessica Jones tells us, Jessica Jones is just getting to work. Although this new vdieo for Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series doesn’t provide us with any actual footage, this is the first Jessica Jones teaser to show the titular heroine out in the streets of New York City, using her powers. And while it’s all probably a little more stylized than what the real show will actually look like, the deep purples and reds draped across the darkness in this 40-second promo give Jessica Jones a very distinct and unique tone that is different from Daredevil (even though both shows take place in the same location), which is exciting to see. Marvel’s Jessica Jones stars Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23‘s Krysten Ritter as Jessica, Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as Kilgrave, »
