The next Marvel Netflix series got another teaser trailer recently and it definitely sets the tone of what the show will be like. I've been somewhat in the dark about the series -- purposely, of course, I did the same thing with Daredevil -- so seeing little bits like this that don't give away much of anything help to increase my excitement.
The trailer, titled Nightcap, barely shows any action. It's who we assume to be Jessica Jones trying to listen to a Joan Jett song on a finicky Jukebox. There are two things that really caught my eye while I watched this trailer:
It establishes Jessica as a character. The fact that she's still willing to drop a quarter into a jukebox after beating up a bunch of a people shows us a bit of her moral compass. I mean, if I had just finished beating up a room of people I don't think I would pay to listen to a (mostly okay) song.
We know this show is going to be violent. The bloody knuckles, the close up of Jessica's boots walking through a room with hurt people lets us know that she'll be fighting a bunch of guys and she's good at it. I'm also really fond of the close up of her bloody hands, it shows us a lot about her character without actually saying anything.
Now, I honestly don't know much about Jessica Jones's character. Maybe @shannonl5 and her Marvelers can give me some backstory and perspective?

@BiblioLady do you feel like he should read any of the comics before watching the show? I know they usually design the writing so it's not necessary but some of them are really good...
