    I figure we have enough info for a separate thread for Jessica Jones. I for one think it's shaping up to be yet another high-quality entry in the Marvel Netlixematic Universe.

    I like my superheroes and my supervillains to wear tatty scarves. Good job, Netflix!

    At a quick glance, I thought it was Charlie Sheen.

    I'm pretty pumped for this show, love the cast and I am especially excited to see David Tennant as a villain. I have seen a lot of people complaining that the Purple Man isn't...well, purple. I think it's probably a good move not going that direction though, it certainly doesn't have me as pissed off as it seems to have a lot of other people.

    They need to calm down anyway. Daredevil didn't wear red until near the end, so who knows what might happen.

    It would make sense for him to disguise his condition with make-up. Not saying I know that's the direction they've taken, but it's a possibility.

    The rage though...

    Why is he called 'The Purple Man'?

    HAVE YOU SEEN THE SCARF!!!

    LOL... people are complaining about Purple Man with not so much Purple? :oops::rolleyes:

    Oh silly internet. It's David Tennant, I'm sure he'll more than make up for the lack of his namesake hue in his looks.

    Perhaps he only becomes purple when he uses his powers? Or his powers have the "side-effect" or making him look purple? Or he becomes purple over the course of the show? Or he's already purple and is using his mind-powers to make people see him as "normal?" And so on and so forth.

    The point is, we don't know near enough yet to make any concrete judgments.

    Okay, not enough freaking out over Krysten Ritter. She's always really good and, well, beautiful. I hope this works out for her. Though she certainly seems unhappy in those pictures!

    Jessica Jones is, at the start, a thoroughly unhappy character from what I remember...

    Thanks to that picture of David Tennant, Mrs. Inty is now officially more excited than I am for this series to hit Netflix. Which is really saying something.

    And, of course, it has to hit Netflix on an incredibly busy (for us) weekend.

    November 20. Which mean I'll binge watch this series over the Thanksgiving weekend.

    I'm not at all familiar with Jessica Jones. So the other day I did some quick searches and came across this:

    Looks like some crazy stuff is going down in the series. I hope it's done in the same graphic and mature tone as Daredevil.

    This is my concern: JoinTheSchwarz can probably give a more accurate take, but my understanding is that this is the extent of any sexual interaction between Jessica and The Purple Man; there's no sexual assault, or rape, or anything that resembles touching -- it's just a complete mental domination and degradation vs. a more active sexual relationship.

    It's no less horrible, but it does alter the take somewhat if they go the full rape/assault route.

    Yeah, Purple Man didn't touch one hair of Jessica's head, but he made her watch while he abused tens of women, for example. Had her enslaved and conscious of what was going on for months. Try to imagine not having your body obey your commands, but some other guy's, for months. Bendis wasn't interested in using rape as a cheap device, but in exploring how creepy and devastating to the victim the old "mind controller" comic book archetype would actually be.

    A lot of people are going to be so shocked when they see lovable David Tennant playing such a vile character. It's going to be great. "He evil, he's disgusting, he's vile, but but it's David Tennant. Oh I'm so confused right now."

    The Jessica v Purple Man backstory, that's basically the crux of the series and I skimmed at the episode titles and it's totally going to be that.

    I get the feeling this'll skew in the general arc a tad closer to the original comic source. Daredevil sort of cribbed from all over the place, and certainly nailed the tone, but you can't really say that's an "adaptation" of a specific arc. Alias is only 18 issues or so, I'd figure there's your season 1 right there.

    Anyway, I love this shot of Kirsten Ritter as Jessica

    This show has my attention. Mainly as i'm enjoying Netflix' Daredevil and i'm a Doctor Who fan. Who is Jessica Jones - a detective with Super Powers? I take it she isn't a costumed hero like Daredevil...

    Those shots look very good.

    If i'm a fan of Batman, Daredevil, and Sherlock could this show be for me?
