‘Jessica Jones’: David Tennant Wants To Return As Purple Man In The MCU

I ALWAYS come back!

Jessica Jones may not be free from the Purple Man just yet! David Tennant has expressed his interest in reprising his iconic role in the MCU.

David Tenant made a splash as Zebediah Kilgrave in Marvel’s Netflix shows, often being considered the best villain to come out of the six shows. With characters like Jessica Jones now officially canon to the MCU, fans have been wondering if it’d be possible for Tenant to return as the Purple Man in a potential revival. According to the actor, he would love to return to the world of capes and cowls.

“I’d love to do Kilgrave again, yeah Kilgrave would be great,” Tennant explained at the BAFTAs. “Yeah, that would be good wouldn’t it? I mean…he did very much get his neck broken, he was very dead…but never say never in the Marvel Universe.”

It wouldn’t even be the first time David Tennant returned as Purple Man despite being dead. The actor returned as Kilgrave in Jessica Jones season 2 as a hallucination haunting the titular hero. It’s also possible for Tennant to return in flashbacks, especially if Kilgrave’s kids are introduced in the MCU. Nothing is ever truly off the table when it comes to superheroes.

Is Jessica Jones Reuniting With Daredevil?

According to reliable leaker MyTimeToShineHello on Twitter, Krysten Ritter will be back in the upcoming Daredevil revival from Marvel Studios. Ritter has already expressed her desire to return to the role after playing the character in three seasons of her solo series and The Defenders crossover event. The account went on to share that the MCU’s version of Jessica Jones would be both a reboot and a continuation of the Netflix series.

Here is the synopsis for Netflix’s Jessica Jones:

When Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down.
