David Tennant Cast as Marvel Villain in Netflix Series
The ex Time Lord is coming to the Marvel universe.
The studio has cast David Tennant as the major villain in its upcoming Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones.
The Doctor Who star will play Zebediah Killgrave also known as The Purple Man.
The official series description:
“After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. An enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, Kilgrave’s reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.”
In the comics, Kilgrave can produce pheromones which give him the power to control people’s minds as long as he’s physically nearby. He also can recover from severe injuries very quickly and is, quite literally, purple.
