Jessica Jones (played by Krysten Ritter) has so far managed to evade death as the down-to-earth and misunderstood superhero, but could season three bring an end to that?

The Netflix series has presented a superhero who also exhibits the very human characteristics not common in comic book superheroes.

However, despite positive reviews from season two, the show has been cancelled as Netflix has cut back its Marvel collection.

With the show coming to an end, could the new villain Gregory Salinger (Jeremy Bobb) be set to bring her down.

Known as Foolkiller in the Marvel comics, he is set to come after Jessica and best friend Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) in the latest instalment.

Although not wearing a costume like in the Marvel comics, he is set to provide the ultimate villainous threat to Jessica and Trish.

In the trailer, she receives a phone call and the voice on the other end tells her she is a “cheater” and told: “You were given every advantage.”

He also tells her: “You have no discipline, just brute force” and forces Jessica to question herself, something which she is good at.

She then asks him what he wants and he replies: “I want you to die.”

It also appears she recognises that this villain is the biggest threat she has ever faced as she reveals to Trish: “He’s smarter than both of us combined.”

The trailer ends on the haunting words: “Jessica Jones. You believe that you could save the world. But you’re terrified you’ve already failed them. And you have because you are not and you never will be a hero.”

She will have to fully embrace her superhero role and abandon her vices to fight off this terrifying threat.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series creator and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg revealed: “Salinger is a deeply scarred individual, and he just, by coincidence, crosses paths with Jessica.

“For him, everything about her offends him, [specifically] the fact that she’s got these powers not through hard work but through some other means. This is someone who has worked very hard himself. But he’s a very twisted dude.”

She added: “He doesn’t really show up too much until I think episode three or four, so we really had time to massage the character, his voice, and his movements. That was an absolute collaboration with Jeremy.”

Meanwhile, the season three synopsis seems to hint at an oncoming battle between Jessica and Trish.

It says: “When Jessica crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down.

“But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.”

The duo certainly didn’t leave on the best terms in season two, as Trish killed Jessica’s mother in the season finale.

Although Jessica hated her mother, she was really not happy about the whole situation – despite going on to cover for Trish’s actions.

Jessica Jones season three arrives June 14 on Netflix.
