“Jessica Jones. I. Know. Everything.” Netflix has released yet another new teaser for Marvel's upcoming Jessica Jones series. And this time, it features David Tennant’s sinister villain Kilgrave, aka Purple Man.

Can a full trailer not be far behind? Let's hope so. But back to the promo at hand.

Not only does it put the spotlight on the villain of the piece, but the teaser is also giving us our first proper look at Krysten Ritter’s titular character, the former superheroine-turned-private eye.

It boasts a creepy, goose-bump-inducing monologue by the former Tenth Doctor as Kilgrave, the man who will torment (and I'm putting this mildly) our heroine in the series. Which, as some of you may already know, is just what he did in the comics, times a bazillion. Check it out below, and let us know what you think:


All right. I’ve got to say (again) that the whole thing sounds sinister as heck. It's made even more disturbing as Jessica creates a collage from various pics that ultimately forms an image of Kilgrave’s intense gaze. He's looking right. At. Her. Brrrr ...

I can't wait to see what David Tennant will bring to the series, since I think he's a terrific actor (and he was my favorite Doctor) and can play total creeps really well (check out 2005's TV miniseries Secret Smile to know what I mean). But will he be as riveting as Vincent D'Onofrio was in the role of Kingpin in Netflix's first Marvel series, Daredevil? I'm hoping that he'll blow D'Onofrio's performance out of the water.

The whole of the 13-episode Jessica Jones series will premiere on Nov. 20 on Netflix.
