Get To Know Marvel’s Jessica Jones In These Official First Look Images
We’ve seen Krysten Ritter take up the mantle of Jessica Jones, Marvel’s next gritty TV star to follow Daredevil. We’ve also seen Mike Colter as Luke Cage. Now it’s time to officially meet the rest of the Jessica Jones crew. Today (September 17) Netflix released a new series of images from the fall television series that show us our first close-up look at Jessica’s best friend, Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), her ally Harper (Carrie-Anne Moss) and the sinister-looking villain of the show, Kilgrave (David Tennant). Plus more of Jessica and Luke, of course. Get used to those two, because you’re going to be seeing a lot of them in future Marvel Netflix projects, especially when Luke Cage gets to lead his own series.
The dark, tense mood of these pics perfectly suits the story of Jessica Jones, who’s a down-on-her-luck former superhero trying to make ends meet as a private detective. One tiny gripe, though—Trish, who’s based on the superhero Patsy “Hellcat” Walker, isn’t a redhead like she is on the comic page. Giant bummer for this fellow-redheaded comic book nerd over here! Oh well, at least we have her new solo-led comic book series to look forward to, right?
Jessica Jones is coming to Netflix on November 20.
