We've seen a little dealing with Marvel's Daredevil show that hits Netflix on April 10, but it may surprise you to hear that the next in line, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, is also set to hit sometime this year! Furthermore, we have a great bit of casting news regarding a previous Doctor, David Tennant, playing the villainous Kilgrave! Tennant joins Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter, who play Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, respectively.

Marvel states the show will take place after a tragic ending to a short-lived super hero stint and will focus on Jessica Jones rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Kilgrave will serve as an enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, whose reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world. Much like this casting news will send shockwaves to Doctor Who fans, I'm sure. Tennant had a short turn as a villain in HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, so I look forward to what he can do in Marvel's latest!

The 13-episode series is scheduled to hit Netflix later this year.

Hell yeah

Anyone who read ALIAS should be excited about this show. One of the most underrated comics. I can't wait.

So Fox is trying to make a Xmen related live action show and are in negotiations with Marvel. Just random stuff

Marvel must love a bit of Doctor Who

Christopher Eccleston was in The Dark World, Karen Gillan was in Guardians and Jenna Coleman had a small part in The First Avenger. And now Tennant joins the gang!

DT is my fave Doctor and I was hoping he'd land a Marvel role at some point. Admittedly I was hoping it'd be one of the films but still... this has made Jessica Jones more interesting for me!

I think it's less than a coincidence, but I still think they hire the people who screen test the best. So far the roles have all been cast well, even though sometimes they haven't been written as well (Malekith).

Oh and Jenna Coleman's The First Avenger part pre-dated her casting in Doctor Who

I'm actually interested in this series

now that David Tennant's involved. He was a great Doctor, and it'll be cool to see him as a baddie. His appearance in GOBLET OF FIRE was little more than a cameo; I'd like to see how he plays a villain over an extended series.
