David Tennant was announced as playing Zebediah Killgrave/The Purple Man in A.K.A. Jessica Jones back in January. Since then, we’ve seen plenty of set photos featuring Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Carrie-Anne Moss (rumored to be playing a character named Harper), and Eka Darville (Malcolm). Yet, we hadn’t seen any sign of Tennant on set.
Yesterday, these photos (shown below) surfaced, showing Tennant and Ritter on set, but they weren’t really close enough for us to see much of anything.

But today, thanks to Instagram user Koray Ersin, we have our best look yet as Tennant as The Purple Man. Now, as you can see below, his skin isn’t purple, but he is in the purple suit!
A.K.A. Jessica Jones is expected to hit Netflix later this year, most likely around December.For those unfamiliar with the character, we will have a post up this week that should explain who she is and what you can expect to see in the show once it is released. Be sure to check back!
