              The introduction trailer is very reminiscent of Daredevil's, but with a

              new addition to the skyline in Avengers Tower (which is briefly shown).

               

              It's getting close to the November 20th release date and here is the first teaser trailer.

Does JJ have super powers? Dont know a lot about her tbh. Looks good though.

 

I like the fact they seem to be going the same route as the movies. Start with Daredevil (Iron Man) release Jessica Jones (Hulk), Iron Fist (Thor), Daredevil (Iron Man 2), Iron Fist (Cap 1) then the team up of Marvel Knights (Avengers). Its worked and the product has improved so hopefully the wont be a 'hulk' poor film. Also hoping S2 of DD isnt like IM2 as that wasnt great.

She has, as etz said, superhuman strength (of undetermined limits), enhanced durability and the power of flight. She also, thanks to Jean Grey, received the power of mental protection (think along the lines of a psychic bubble), which was after her first encounter with Purple Man and before she gave up the superhero mantle, so could feature here.

 

The main crux of her character is that she used to be a superheroine, but gave it up after her negative experience with Purple Man, The Avengers, etc, and set up a detective agency, which is where the comic Alias comes in and where we find her now.

 

Interestingly, she was at the same high-school as Peter Parker, but with the age difference of the two in the current MCU, that probably won't be the case.

Also hoping S2 of DD isnt like IM2 as that wasnt great.
I feel Marvel learned from that (and IM2 had a great turn by Rourke until he had the big suit at the end), plus The Punisher could be the showstealer.

Yeah, I'm all kinds of hyped for Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle. He's got the right kind of look about him, and the episodes he did as "crazy Shane" towards the end of his run on Walking Dead bode good things.

I watched episode 1 & 2 last night and holy sweet moses this is a good show. Typical detective show with a superhero and horror twist. Ritter is very good as Jessica Jones, Tennant is seriously creepy as Kilgrave, Coulter IS Luke Cage. I am looking forward to continue the binge watch tonight.

That's pretty much my thoughts. Also, the bit with the Trish's fan was a nice nod.

I finished this the other night and for the most part really enjoyed it.

 

Kilgrave is up their with Fisk and Loki as the best Marvel on screen villains. Tennant plays him almost as a villainous 10th Doctor there are many mannerisms that almost seem lifted from Doctor Who but with that villainous twist.

 

Ritter does a great job as Jones although i would of preferred it is she was a little more fleshed out. Shes a Alcoholic as well as a PI but both of these things are only just touched on.

 

I also thought there was a bit too much filler. It could of easily been trimmed down to 10 episodes. I appreciate that Hogarth may have a bigger role going forward in the Netflix shows but her divorce subplot was just plain dull. The whole thing with Jessicas accident, IGH and Simpsons seemingly bizarre heel turn resulting from his super soldier program really felt as filler and they almost acknowledge that its as much with Jessica casually brushing it off.

 

Also having Claire Temple just pop up in the final episode felt forced almost as if it was a last minute decision to include her.

 

But yeah it does alot of things right, bringing up subjects such as abusive behavior and rape, as well as the whole tone of the show really. I really like the show but for me it never quite reaches the heights that Daredevil did earlier this year.

I thought her alcoholism was pretty well portrayed, it's an obvious result of what Kilgrave did to her and her terror at the idea of falling under his control again. She couldn't really try to clean herself up with that hanging over her head. I expect she'll become a recovering alcoholic if this gets a second season.

 

All the stuff you're calling filler is pretty clearly set up for stories into a second season too. For instance, if, as seems likely, IGH created Jessica Jones by accident, then it's likely Simpson's drug regime is an experiment to attempt to replicate what happened to Jessica. So why does it send him off the rails, but Jessica wasn't affected? Also, we've already seen she holds herself responsible for things beyond her control, so how will she deal with the guilt of being the root cause of the ruination of many good people at the hands of these experimental drugs?

I didn't see it as a forced decision.

 

Jessica Jones is set in the same area as Daredevil, so it makes sense that if someone ends up in an emergency room at a hospital, someone who works as a nurse at that hospital would make an appearance. Add in that she is aware of what is happening beneath the sugar-coated reality most people see and it's logical she would gravitate towards someone "special".
