David Tennant is set to return as the villain Kilgrave (aka. The Purple Man) in the upcoming second season of Marvel and Netflix’s “Jessica Jones”. Tennant has been photographed on-set with co-star Krysten Ritter and you can see that photo above.
The character served as the main antagonist of the show’s first season and is considered arguably one of the best (if not the best) villain any Marvel production has produced to date as the series had time to explore the full and dark extent of his power of mind-control through suggestion.
How he will factor in considering his fate in the first season finale is unclear, but flashbacks, nightmares or visions are certainly quite possible. Marvel is not saying either way though.
In the series, Jessica Jones continues rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City. “Jessica Jones” returns to screens in 2018, though the character will first appear in Marvel’s “The Defenders” event series which hits this Friday.
