The Netflix exclusive series Marvel's AKA Jessica Jones, which stars Breaking Bad's Krysten Ritter in the titular role alongside Mike Colter as Luke Cage, has received another popular cast member today! David Tennant, known more recently for his work on ITV's crime thriller Broadchurch, will be playing the role of antagonist Zebediah 'The Purple Man' Killgrave.
AKA Jessica Jones, which is set many years after Jones' escape from superhero life, sees her set up a detective agency to deal with cases between superpowered and non-superpowered people. Like with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the series is expected to incorporate many recognisable villains, and will be produced by Marvel Television as well as ABC Studios. It is just one of several new TV projects currently in the works to feature popular Marvel characters, all of which take place within the same continuity.
