In the comics, Kilgrave is known as The Purple Man, because he’s purple. It hasn’t been confirmed whether Tennant will be donning purple make-up (although it’s a good look for him) but we can’t help but notice the colour of his tie…
“I don’t know what you are referring to,” he teases.
OK, fine, he’s not going to answer that. How does he feel playing a villain?
“Who says it’s a villain? Make no assumptions. I’m saying nothing.”
Executive producer Melissa Rosenberg. That’s who says Kilgrave is a villain, David.
Yes, it seems Tennant is back to keeping secrets: “I’ve found myself in another world which I can answer no questions about.” It’s a skill he honed on murder mystery Broadchurch, currently showing its second series. “I tell nobody nothing,” he boasts. ““I don’t mind the shutting up. I was in Scotland last night and I watched the last episode go out with my family. My niece was shouting all sorts of theories… some of which were quite prescient, some of which were very wide of the mark.”
If even his family don’t get the inside scoop, we have no chance. He’s devious, that David Tennant.
Devious like a supervillain.
