Noir detective in the world of superheroes sounds very intriguing!
Jessica Jones received incredible strength as a child. However, unlike Captain America, Spider-Man, or Superman, she does not wear spandex, nor comes up with a fancy nickname, nor rushes around the world fighting for justice.
She is trying to work as a private detective. And drinks a lot.
The past catches up with Jessica when she meets Kilgrave again, a villain who can control anyone’s mind. Before, Jones was associated with Kilgrave, but now she is afraid to face him. Besides, once the villain made Jessica kill a man, and she often sees it in her nightmares.
A confrontation between two people with unusual abilities begins …
- All episodes of the first season of Jessica Jones were released on November 20, 2015. Season 2 premiered on March 8 (probably no coincidence), 2018. The third and final season is available on Netflix from June 14, 2019.
- Jessica Jones is a fairly recent character in the Marvel comic universe. Her first appearance on the pages of a graphic novel happened only in 2001. Unlike the series, in the comics, she was a member of the Marvel team, wore suits, was even married to Luke Cage, and together they had a daughter Danielle.
- The TV-series became part of a small television universe, which also includes Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and the crossover Defenders.
- The role of Kilgrave was played by the excellent British actor David Tennant, a star of theater, film, and television. In 2020, he played villains twice — in the TV-series Des and Deadwater Fell. We will soon see him as Phileas Fogg in another screen adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days.
This is an American sci-fi thriller TV-series based on Marvel comics.
The first season of Jessica Jones premiered on November 20, 2015, on the Netflix streaming service.
