‘Jessica Jones’ star David Tennant says it would be difficult to return to the MCU
After a few years under the tutelage of the Netflixthe microcosm formed by the defenders is gradually returning to the hands of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – even more so with Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) returning to reprise their roles in the franchise.
Recently, speculation has indicated that Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) would also join the MCU, leading some fans to imagine that even the villainous Kilgrave (David Tennant) could return.
However, during a panel at FAN EXPO Boston, Tennant, who also perpetuated the titular role in the beloved series ‘Doctor Who’, admitted that it would be difficult to return to the franchise, given the antagonist’s specificity. Additionally, the actor said he would love to see some of the writers behind the franchise try to involve the character in future stories in some way.
A fan asks whether Kilgrave from #JessicaJones could make a return given the MCU multiverse. David thinks it would be difficult considering how specific a character Kilgrave is, but that he’d be excited to see the “talented” writers at Marvel try.
