A set photo of David Tennant as Kilgrave for the upcoming Netflix’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones has surfaced on Instagram. The photo was taken five days ago and has since been taken down.
The Purple Man (real name Dr. Zebediah Killgrave) is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics supervillain. Originally a foe of Daredevil, he was introduced in Daredevil vol. 1 #4 (October 1964). In the 2000s he emerged as an enemy of Jessica Jones and her husband Luke Cage. His body produces pheromones which allow him to verbally control the actions of others.
The picture shows Tennant wearing purple pants and jacket, though his skin remains makeup free. It will be interesting to see what Tennant looks like in post production.
A.K.A. Jessica Jones is slated to debut on Netflix in late 2015.
