Looks like a Time Lord is set to step into the Marvel Universe! The studio has cast David Tennant as major villain Zebediah Killgrave in its upcoming Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones.
Fans and avid Marvel Comics readers will no doubt recognize the name as the alias of The Purple Man. 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. But it’s not clear yet how closely Marvel’s series will stick to the comic version of the character.
A.K.A. Jessica Jones has a 13-episode series order and will premiere on Netflix sometime later this year. The show will see Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter, Breaking Bad) 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 shock waves through the former super hero’s world.”
Doctor Who fans will no doubt be happy with this casting announcement.
Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
