It seems Marvel and Netflix aren’t underestimating the nerd appeal of David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor and current co-star of the gritty new comic book adaptation ‘Jessica Jones’. Although Krysten Ritter portrays the title character, a disgraced former super hero, it’s Tennant’s villain Zebediah Killgrave that steals the focus in the latest motion poster for the series which will become available to stream in its entirety on November 20th.
Jessica Jones, once known as the super hero Jewel, was driven from her altruistic endeavors when the mind-controlling Killgrave enslaved her and forced her to do his bidding.
Above you can see a new still photo showing Killgrave in a church, standing at a microphone being confronted by a female, presumably Jones. In the comics, Killgrave’s powers originate from pheromones from his skin, but on the show, it’s said that his mind manipulating powers stem from his voice, so having him standing at a microphone is probably bad news!
Here is the newly released log line:
Haunted by a traumatic past, Jessica Jones uses her gifts as a private eye to fine her tormenter before he can harm anyone else in Hell’s Kitchen.
Like the first motion poster, which focused on the show’s title character, the new Killgrave-heavy poster is based heavily on the artwork of David Mack, who illustrated the lush watercolor covers for the original Jessica Jones comic series ‘Alias’.

If that’s not enough, Netflix has also released a still version (just right for your phone wallpaper):
In addition to Ritter and Tennant, ‘Jessica Jones’ also stars Mike Colter as fellow super hero Luke Cage— who is next in line to get his own Netflix series–, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeryn Hogarth and Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker. The show was created by Melissa Rosenberg a writer and producer for the series ‘Dexter’ and who also wrote the ‘Twilight’ movies.
What do you think of David Tennant as a bad guy? Are you intrigued by the gritty Netflix shows as opposed to the glossier, more outlandish movies and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’?
