Tennant will play the villainous Kilgrave, in the series which stars Krysten Ritter as a former superhero who opens her own detective agency. She then gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York.
Kilgrave is described as an enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past whose reappearance will trigger shock waves.
The comic book drama is one of four shows with Marvel heroes that Netflix has approved for straight to series.
The former Doctor Who star recently appeared in the FOX remake of Broadchurch, Gracepoint, and has resumed the original role in the UK series.
