This latest Netflix promo for Jessica Jones might be known as Evening Stroll, but it’s so much more than that. The superhero-turned-detective (Krysten Ritter) does take an evening stroll through Hell’s Kitchen, but then she shows off her otherworldly strength by leaping up onto a building. After all, why bother with the hassle of stairs, when you can just jump onto the fire escape? Yep, we’re with you, Jessica. You have to cut those corners where ever you can!
The show has a brilliant premise (that we desperately hope it lives up to): a former superhero rebuilds her life as a private investigator, after her superhero career comes to a tragic end. The detective agency will deal with cases involving people with remarkable abilities, and we suspect there will be a lot of interesting characters along the way. Despite this being an extraordinary “superhero” story, it seems like the show will be character-driven, and tackle themes that are universally relatable; like growing up and finding your true purpose in life. Jessica Jones therefore might be able to reach audiences far and wide. Hey, even your parents might be into it.
Other stars of note in Jessica Jones include Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachel Taylor as Trish Walker, and David Tennant as Kilgrave AKA Purple Man. The 13-episode series premieres on Netflix on November 20, so… not long to go now.
