By on

Marvel?s Jessica Jones is not your typical superhero as shown in the latest trailer. The new Jessica Jones trailer shows her drinking as hard as how she beat-up the locals at a local pub in Hell?s kitchen, New York City.

Not much details were shown on why she looked to have recklessly wreaked havoc in the pub, however, it provides an interesting look on how Jones will be coping with her new life after abandoning her superhero persona. Netflix?s new series will be about Jones rebuilding her personal life by becoming a private investigator.

In the comics, Jones was first known as a superhero named Jewel until she was abused by a villain known as Purple Man. According to CNET, the tv show will follow the story of her retirement after her abuse where she opts to build her own detective firm called Alias Investigations. The series won?t completely disregard what happened during her life as a superhero Jewel because according to Jones? actress Krysten Ritter, glimpses of her dark past will be shown in the show.

According to Screen Rant, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg previously said that Jones will face numerous personality issues throughout the show. She also detailed her personality:

?Jessica is about paying rent,? getting the next client. She?s dealing with a fairly dark past. She?s trying to get through the day. She?s not really trying to save the city, she?s trying to save her apartment. At her core, she wants to do something good. She wants to contribute to the world. But there are a lot of personality issues for her that can get in the way.

?Jessica Jones is a brawler. She gets drunk, she gets pissed off, and boom, you?re down. She doesn?t wear a costume, she doesn?t have a mask. She?s just who she is.?

Jessica Jones is scheduled to premiere on November 20, 2015.
