PODCAST: David Tennant Talks Jessica Jones With WSJ Speakeasy
David Tennant talks about his new Netflix series Marvel's Jessica Jones for the Wall Street Journal Speakeasy podcast. He talks about his character, the villainous Kilgrave, a depraved individual with the power of mind control and an unfortunate obsession with the series lead character, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).
David talks about Kilgrave's origins in the Marvel comics of the 1960s, and how the character has been updated to fit into the gritter, more grounded world of the Marvel TV series, which also include Daredevil and the upcoming Luke Cage. He also chats about the moral implications of the power of mind control and his boyhood love of Marvel Comics.
Marvel's Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter and David Tennant is adapted from the Marvel Max comics series Alias by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos. The thirteen part series was adapted by Melissa Rosenberg and co-stars Micke Colter, Carrie-Anne Moss and Rachael Taylor.
Watch Marvel's Jessica Jones only on Netflix from Friday 20th November
