The second series is made by exclusively female directors
The first trailer for Jessica Jones season two has landed.
The Marvel show, starring Krysten Ritter as a private detective with superhuman abilities, will return to Netflix on March 8, 2018.
The trailer sees Jones as her usual, blunt self as she ends the commercial with “If you say, ‘with great power comes great responsibility’, I swear I’ll throw up on you.” You can watch the trailer below.
A synopsis for the season describes the show: “Now known throughout the city as a super-powered killer, a new case makes her reluctantly confront who she really is while digging deeper into her past to explore the reasons why.”
Last year, it was revealed that the second series of Jessica Jones is to be made by exclusively female directors.
Melissa Rosenberg, showrunner for Netflix’s Marvel series told the Transform Hollywood symposium that all 13 episodes of the series would be directed by women. On the first series of the programme, only three of the nine directors were female.
Ritter starred in The Defenders earlier this year, which saw Jessica Jones team up with Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
The fourth part of the series is currently scheduled for a 2019 release, following next year’s Avengers: Infinity War installment.
Speaking in a Vanity Fair interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has revealed that its follow-up will be a major moment in the canonical universe, and will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale.”
A number of actors who play the universe’s key characters will see their current contracts come to an end after Avengers 4, including Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye – Feige’s comments seem to suggest that we could see some dramatic ends to the characters’ storylines.
“There will be two distinct periods,” Feige added. “Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
