It isn't known when we may get a full-length trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones. But Netflix has been steadily releasing a series of teasers that trace the superhero P.I. through an average night of work. Today, the latest sneak peek finds Jessica inside her Alias Investigations office as she pieces together a case. It's the first teaser that has revealed star Krysten Ritter's face. It also introduces Kilgrave (aka The Purple Man), the main villain played by David Tennant. And it's quite eerie.
The Purple Man, whose real name is Dr. Zebediah Killgrave, was originally a foe of Daredevil. The character was first introduced in Daredevil vol. 1 #4. In the 2000s, he emerged as an enemy of Jessica Jones and her husband Luke Cage. His body produces pheromones which allow him to verbally control the actions of others. While David Tennant will appear as The Purple Man on Marvel's Jessica Jones this winter, it isn't known if the villain will crossover with Marvel's Daredevil. At this time, there is no indication that any of the characters from both shows will intermingle, but they all live in Hell's Kitchen, so it's a more than likely senerio.
After months of anticipation, Netflix announced its highly-anticipated original series Marvel's Jessica Jones will premiere on November 20, 2015 at 12:01am PT in all territories where Netflix is available. That teaser was delivered via the show's social handle @JessicaJones. Today's new footage comes courtesy of Netflix Japan's Twitter page to give us some actual footage, which shows that Krysten Ritter's title character is certainly not one to be trifled with. After leaving a trail of battered bodies in her wake, it should be only a matter of time before she meets another Hell's Kitchen vigilante, lawyer Matt Murdock.
Marvel's Jessica Jones is the second of four Netflix original series', all of which are epic live-action adventures spread out over the course of the next few years. It comes after Marvel's Daredevil, which launched April 10th. Jessica Jones will then be followed by Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist sometime in 2016. This is all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in Marvel's The Defenders, to premiere only on Netflix sometime in 2018. Marvel's Daredevil is returning for Season 2 in spring 2016, and it promises to introduce Marvel comic book characters The Punisher and Elektra into the MCU.
Marvel's Jessica Jones is a suspenseful, edgy look into the life of Jessica Jones, one of the most popular new Marvel characters of the last decade, as she faces demons from within and without. The drama will premiere with 13 one-hour episodes. After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City.
Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) is joined by an amazing cast including David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker). Also appearing throughout the series are Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval, among others. Marvel's Jessica Jones on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter) and Liz Friedman (Elementary), along with Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Smallville, Heroes), who also serves as Marvel's Head of Television.

This is the fourth in a series of teaser trailers that take us through a typical day in the life of Marvel's Jessica Jones. She awakens at 2:59 pm in Hell's Kitchen, and isn't too pleased with her alarm clock. The first teaser shows just how powerful this new superhero can be using only her hands. At 7:54, Jessica tosses down a few stiff drinks at a local Hell's Kitchen watering hole, where she's just turned the dive into a bloodbath of bikers. She's definitely not someone we should mess with. In the third teaser, she heads to her night job at 11:57 pm. Now, it is clear that she has been burning the midnight oil. It is 2:23 am, Jess has been working for almost two and a half hours on a case. Perhaps it has taken that long to make the wonderful collage she has tacked to the wall. All the while, she is tormented by the voice of the Purple Man. Check it out. The full trailer is expected to drop this weekend during New York Comic Con.
