A.K.A. Jessica Jones

David Tennant Joins the Marvel Universe as ‘Jessica Jones’ Villain

Rejoice, David Tennant fans! Though you may have wept at the cancellation of the American Broadchurch remake series Gracepoint - if only because it meant a lack of the former Tenth Doctor on your TV every week (I mean, honestly, otherwise, why would you?) – you can rest easy, because the former Time Lord has just landed another big role. Yes, indeed, Tennant has officially joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will be playing the villain in Marvel’s upcoming 13-episode Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones.

The official description for the Jessica Jones series as follows: “After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter, ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23) is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. An enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, Kilgrave’s reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.”

So dramatic, right? These superheroes and their issues.
