Netflix has dropped its trailer for Jessica Jones season 2, and they have slipped in an iconic line from Marvel Comics.
The trailer features everything one would love about Jessica Jones from season 1, including Jones’ trademark bluntness and sense of humor. Before it had concluded, it showed Jones talking to someone as they ride a truck. She tells the person “if you say with great power comes great responsibility, I swear I’ll throw up on you.”
Fans will recognize this line as the trademark phrase of Spider-Man, which is associated with Peter Parker’s origin. Peter had adopted the saying after his selfish actions had resulted in his Uncle Ben being killed that he could have stopped, and ever since he has held the phrase close to his heart.
It is not known how Jessica has learned of the phrase. The Marvel TV universe has alleged events from the movies, like the invasion of New York City, but Spider-Man is a new addition. The “power and responsibility” line is not like the Bat-Signal, where everyone is exposed to it.
It is maybe a fun nod to Marvel fans and has nothing to do with continuity unless Marvel changes course and has the universe interact in a greater capacity.
Fans have been waiting to see Jessica Jones return for a second season, and it is good to know that is going to happen sooner than later.
Other Netflix shows in development are Daredevil season 3, Luke Cage season 2, and Iron Fist season 2.
