'Jessica Jones' Trailer: Krysten Ritter Stars as Marvel & Netflix Re-Team

After the huge success of Daredevil, Marvel's flying high going into Jessica Jones, its second of four planned superhero series on Netflix. (And they're all building to a posse miniseries, The Defenders. Yup.)

Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23) stars as "your typical tough-talking noir detective—except she has super-strength and the ability to fly," Engadget writes. The Matrix's Carrie-Anne Moss plays Jeryn Hogarth; former Doctor Who star David Tennant is Kilgrave, the bad guy menacing the whole trailer hard.

Mark your iPhone's calendar app for November 20, when all 13 episodes drop. Marvel's description reads:

"Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero [their caps, not ours] ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) 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."

Next up for Netflix and Marvel are Luke Cage (due in 2016, starring Mike Colter, a character in Jessica Jones), Iron Fist (TBD) and the second season of Daredevil (2016). The trailer for that last one dropped at this month's super-revealing New York Comic Con:
