In Marvel's Jessica Jones, which made its debut on Netflix today, David Tennant plays the show's main antagonist, The Purple Man/Kilgrave. He has the ability to control minds and wields that power with little concern for who he hurts. For him, they are all his puppets to play with. When MTV caught with the former Doctor Who star, they asked him which Avenger character he would like to control.
"I supposed you'd go with the most powerful, wouldn't you?" Tennant ponders the question. "I would worry that Thor maybe in need of a Norse get-out clause in his psyche. Okay, probably wouldn't go for Thor. You'd probably go for Iron Man, I think. Get him to do your bidding with his hundreds of suits."
Listen to Tennant's comments in the video below.
Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check.
