As fans continue to devour “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix, production continues on the second “Defenders” series with “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones.” io9 managed to find two images from the filming of the series which give us our first reveal at former Doctor Who David Tennant as the villain Kilgrave, AKA The Purple Man.

Taking place after a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, the series follows Jessica Jones (“Breaking Bad” and “Don’t Trust the B- in Apt. 23″ star Krysten Ritter) as she rebuilds her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
Also starring on the show are the previously-announced David Tennant as Kilgrave, Rachael Taylor as Patsy Walker, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Carrie-Ann Moss as Harper, Eka Danville as Malcolm, Erin Moriarty as Hope, and Will Traval as a NYPD cop.
