Jessica Jones – Trailer

The trailer for Netflix’s Marvel’s Jessica Jones has just dropped, and it’s very psychedelic and…purple.  I assume that that has a lot to do with the influence of the Purple Man (David Tennant) on Jessica Jones. He’s a character that has the ability to control people’s actions (if I recall, due to pheromones or some such thing).

I like how the Netflix series are making the characters more grounded, while keeping the traits that made them so distinctive from the comics.  For instance, in the comics the Purple Man is literally purple, which might not go over too well with the feel that Netflix and Marvel are seeking.

Instead he dresses in purple, which accomplishes the same purpose, while keeping the character realistic enough for those that  have never seen him before, while at the same time cluing in fans of the comic who he is in a way that’s like a homage.
