IGN is reporting that former Doctor Who star David Tennant has been cast in the Marvel Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones as villain Zebediah Killgrave A.K.A the Purple Man. The Purple Man plays a pivotal role in Jessica Jone’s life being the villain responsible for ending her short superhero career. Zebediah Killgrave has the power to control people through his pheromones and his relationship with Jessica though only implied in the comics is especially dark subject matter for the MCU so it’ll be interesting to see if the writers tackle that on the show or avoid it completely.
Though most people may think of David Tennant as the affable Doctor he has played scummy characters before in films such as Secret Smile so he’d easily be able to portray the depraved Purple Man. Marvel and Netflix released a statement about the casting
