It’s been almost two years since Jessica Jones hit Netflix, a show that built on the mature and dark tones established in Daredevil, and also showed that a superhero show can successfully address important social issues. Jessica Jones was Marvel’s first female-led superhero series, it had a bold and colorful visual style, and one of the best super-villains ever in David Tennant’s mind-controlling Kilgrave. Fan expectations for Jessica Jones Season 2 are obviously sky-high!

Now that filming has wrapped on Season 2, we can expect to start seeing new images and video clips, leading up to the (as-yet-unannounced) premiere date. According to IGN The New York Comic-Con (NYCC) begins this week, and will include a cool new Jessica Jones Season 2 poster, created by Marvel’s own Joe Quesada — not only is Joe Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, but he’s also an accomplished comic book artist responsible for amazing Daredevil and Iron Man stories.

This new poster evokes the purple color scheme of Season 1 — a color typically associated with Kilgrave (aka The Purple Man). The central image is a camera, which reinforces that Jones is a private eye first-and-foremost, she just happens to have super powers (a key distinction between Jones and Marvel’s typical, costume-first superheroes).

A note on the color scheme in this poster: LRM reported that Kilgrave is back in Jessica Jones Season 2, and the expectation is that he’s burrowed deep in the psyches of each of the major cast members; Kilgrave might be dead, but his spirit continues to haunt these characters. So, it’s likely this season’s arc will re-focus on PTSD and the long-term affects of rape and psychological abuse, along with whatever new storylines and antagonists are introduced. It’s clear, just from this color scheme, that Kilgrave is more than just an annoyance this season, he’s central to the narrative!

Does this poster set the right tone for Jessica Jones Season 2? Let us know in the comments down below!

    So wack!!!

    This season is going to drag so bad. Jessica Jones is far more integrated with other characters in the comics.I’m starting to get bored of her story in the Netflix Marvel universe if she is just going to keep going back and forth with Killgrave, who for some reason can’t just be called the Purple Man.

    Please start bringing on the real villains of Marvel universe for Christ sakes. I’m not interested in seeing another season of any of the five established heroes fighting the Hand, Elektra or Killgrave.
