Jessica Jones’ David Tennant Explains the Difficulty of His MCU Return

Both Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye accomplished something massive: they both were responsible for bringing everyone’s favorite Marvel Netflix show back into the fold: Daredevil. Now, thanks to them, fans will get even more of Charlie Cox’s hero in She-Hulk, Echo, and even his own Disney+ series. With the return of Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk, a new question begs to be answered: who might return from the Netflix grave next? Jessica Jones? Luke Cage? Punisher?

When it comes to Daredevil, he has long been touted as one of Marvel’s best live-action heroes. In a similar vein, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin has been lauded as an all-time great villain.

So who might be able to follow that? Well, on the hero front, the easy answer is Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones. Just like Cox’s vigilante, she too is also paired with an incredible villain in David Tennant’s Kilgrave.

So with the return of Fisk across various MCU projects, is there a world where audiences might see Kilgrave rise again? Well, according to the actor himself, that might be a hard feat to pull off.

The Difficult Task of Bringing Back Tennant

While attending Fan Expo in Boston, Jessica Jones’ David Tennant talked about his character of Kilgrave and why returning to the MCU wouldn’t be an easy feat.

Tennant noted how “it’s difficult to get conflict” with Kilgrave, as “he can make you do anything, or he can’t.”

David Tennant makes a valid point. In fact, that’s why the character was dead by the end of Jessica Jones’ first season: he’s simply too powerful. Keeping him on the board would present a lot of challenges in maintaining continuity, with future conflicts being hard to flesh out and also challenging to avoid repetitive plot lines.
