Doctor Who star plays Marvel villain for Netflix



Allons-y! David Tennant, best known for his role as Doctor Who, has joined the cast of Marvel's AKA Jessica Jones on Netflix.

He'll be playing Zebediah Killgrave (AKA The Purple Man) who has a history with Daredevil too. So, Tennant may be seen in more than one Marvel Netflix series.

Marvel's gone wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey.

How many more Doctor Who cast members, past and present, will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: sprawling transmedia storytelling encompassing film, television and comics? Jenna Coleman was seen in Captain America: The First Avenger and Karen Gillan played Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy!

Incidentally, Marvel's Agent Carter mini-series, despite garnering universal acclaim, has yet to be picked up by a broadcaster in the UK. There are rumours Netflix may stream the series soon. This wouldn't be a stretch in view of the streaming service's increasing commercial ties with the Disney-owned company.

Looking forward to the upcoming Marvel Netflix series? Let me know in the comments below.
