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.

The first teaser trailer doesn't feature any footage from Marvel's Jessica Jones, but there are plenty of clues and Easter eggs littered throughout, including the opening shot, which takes us to the corner of Higgins Drive. and Birch Street. A camera plays an important role in one of Jessica's cases, possible capturing some important intel on Kilgrave. The show will delve into Jones' bout with alcoholism, somewhere the Iron Man movies have refused to go, despite Tony Stark being a raging alcoholic in the Marvel comic books. We learn that Jessica Jones detective agency is called Alias Investigations, and she appears to have a partner in crime. Is this our first look at Luke Cage?
Someone is definitely going to get thrown through that Alias office window at some point. The end of the trailer tells us that we're definitely still in Hell's Kitchen, with a shot that looks like it was pulled from Marvel's Daredevil marketing. This is all definitely taking place in the same little corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Check out the sneak peek. Are you as excited for Marvel's Jessica Jones as you were Marvel's Daredevil?
