Tennant On “Jessica Jones” Baddie Kilgrave

Less than a week ahead of the release of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” series on Netflix, the first reviews are out for the first half of the season and have praised both the show and leading actress Krysten Ritter in the title role.

However it’s former “Doctor Who” star David Tennant’s villain Zebediah Kilgrave (aka. The Purple Man), a man whose voice controls the minds of others, that has everyone talking. Marvel has often been criticised for its uninteresting villains, but here they have a fascinating and insidious creature that the dark tone of the Netflix series can explore to his full extent.

The Guardian has now done a video interview with Tennant about the role, a piece which includes several new clips showing off the character’s powers in action.

There’s also a new ‘launch trailer’ for the series which you can see below. “Jessica Jones” is set to premiere on Netflix on Friday November 20th.
