Jessica Jones: 8 times Krysten Ritter was a total badass (VIDEO)
Friday is a good day and not just because it's almost the weekend. The official trailer for Netflix's Jessica Jones is finally here — and it's about time. Fans can now get a glimpse into the 13-episode Marvel series featuring Krysten Ritter as the titular lead, Jessica Jones.
As expected, Ritter is quite the badass as the former superhero turned detective who is trying to rebuild both her personal life and career. Of course, it's not easy, especially when the villainous Kilgrave (Doctor Who and Broadchurch's David Tennant) shows up and begins forcing people to do very bad things. With that said, it doesn't look like she gives up easy and isn't afraid to embrace her darker side.
The series also features Mike Colter (The Good Wife), Rachael Taylor (Crisis), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), Wil Traval (Once Upon a Time), Eka Darville (Empire, The Originals) and Erin Moriarty (True Detective).
Are you ready? Here's the trailer in its entirety.
Now, let's talk Ritter's badassness.
1. When she shoves a guy through a door
I think it's pretty clear: you don't want to be on her bad side.
2. When she flies
How amazing is it that both Supergirl and Jessica Jones are coming out around the same time? Watch out, Superman.
3. When she literally throws someone
Yeah, I can do that too...
4. When she stops a car
If that doesn't say badass, what does?
5. When she defends herself
She's definitely a fighter. Don't mess with her.
6. When she fights to save her friend
Now that's a true hero.
7. When she's vulnerable
Being vulnerable isn't always a weakness. I have a feeling her vulnerabilities will push her to become stronger than she already is.
8. When she speaks the truth
She's right: "Booze costs money — usually," which is why most of us work.
All 13 episodes of Jessica Jones debut Nov. 20 on Netflix.
