David Tennant won fans all over the world for playing the heroic Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who. However, Tennant’s upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the Jessica Jones series paints him in a decidedly sinister light.
Tennant is portraying Kilgrave, the man who tormented Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) with his ability to make nearly everyone he encounters obey his every command. Kilgrave’s comic book counterpart in the Marvel Universe is Zebediah Killgrave, a supervillain better known as the Purple Man because of his purple skin and hair. Early photos and trailers from Jessica Jones have depicted Tennant’s Kilgrave with an ordinary skin color. But in a newly released picture from Jessica Jones, Tennant’s Kilgrave is rockin’ the purple.
The new image of Tennant as Kilgrave is one of over 30 new Jessica Jones photos that have been released by Marvel and Netflix. One of the more interesting revelations from the pictures is that Jessica’s friend, Patsy “Trish” Walker (Rachael Taylor) won’t simply be on the sidelines when Kilgrave reenters Jessica’s life. Judging from the photo below, Trish is going to be very involved in at least one action sequence.
Before she was a private investigator, Jessica Jones had a short-lived stint as a superheroine. And as you can clearly see in the next photo, Jessica still has at least some of her powers as she intimidates a man with a one-handed grab.
The rest of the Jessica Jones images can be seen below in our gallery. All 13 episodes of Jessica Jones are slated to premiere on Netflix beginning on Friday, November 20.
