Next up, we talk about the just released trailer for Marvel’s Jessica Jones which showcase the dark side of the MCU, alongside some creepy looks at the Purple Man.

We discuss what we saw in the footage and our overall impressions on the story, characters that were shown alongside a brief recap on the Daredevil trailer.

Ever since her short-lived stint as a super hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need… especially if they’re willing to cut her a check. - Amazon
