David Tennant Will Play Marvel's 'A.K.A. Jessica Jones' Villain!

David Tennant is set to join the cast of Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, a new television series set to debut on Netflix this year.

The 43-year-old actor will play the villainous Kilgrave whose reappearance in Jessica Jones’ (Krysten Ritter) life will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.

“I’m so honored and excited by the prospect of David inhabiting this multifaceted character,” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said in a statement. “He can deliver the most heart-wrenching moment to the driest of lines, and all points in between. He’ll make Kilgrave a truly original villain.”

David became a star after playing the Tenth Doctor on the show Doctor Who and then starring in the Fox series Gracepoint.

    I’m looking forward to watching Jessica Jones. Jewell flies again! (at least I hope she flies.)

    As for David….he will always add a touch of class to any super hero villains’ role.
