'Jessica Jones,' Marvel's latest super hero for Netflix

One of Marvel’s lowest profile super heroes is ready for her closeup.
Netflix announced Thursday that all 13 episodes of the first season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” starring Krysten Ritter as a super-powered private-eye, will hit the streaming site on Nov. 20.
It’s the second of Netflix’s series based on Marvel super heroes after the critically acclaimed “Daredevil” landed in the spring to much fanfare.
A second batch of episodes involving the blind lawyer turned vigilante is currently being filmed with a planned spring 2016 release.
The crime drama show, with show-runner Melissa Rosenberg at the helm, also stars David Tennant as the villainous Kilgrave and Mike Colter, who provides muscle as Luke Cage, a super hero that will get his own Netflix series next.
A fourth series spotlighting Iron Fist is also in the works.
The four will eventually band together in a "Defenders" event-series that borrows a page from Marvel's successful movie strategy uniting its Iron Man, Captain America and Thor franchises for the studio's "Avengers" flicks.

If this is half as good as Daredevil, I'm really looking forward to it. I don't think much of Marvel's films but it looks like they've upped their game when it comes to their Netflix TV shows.

Yay. Another non superhero female marvel tv show. If it's anything like Agent Carter it'll be great. Can marvel do any wrong right now?
My indifference to men has shut me out. I live now in a world of ghosts, a prisoner in my dreams.
