David Tennant

Remember Kilgrave a.k.a the Purple Man (David Tennant)? When last we saw him, he was busy – SPOILER ALERT- getting his neck snapped by one Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) in the Jessica Jones season finale.

But lo and behold – Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the mind-controlling Kilgrave will be back for season 2 of the Marvel-Netflix drama. And while Marvel wouldn’t reveal specific plot details – such as how he’s still alive – they did share the exclusive image above.

While Marvel villains in the movies rarely make a return – besides Tom Hiddleston’s Loki – it seems almost commonplace in the TV universe. Kilgrave is the latest after Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton).

Tennant was chillingly effective as Kilgrave, a real nasty piece of work, and we’re looking forward to his scarrrry English accent again.
