Daredevil released recently on Netflix to overall applause and acclaim and now fans who blazed through the first season are looking towards Marvel and Netflix's next offering: Jessica Jones.

The show isn't releasing until December of this year, but an Instagram user koray_ersin snapped a picture of David Tennant as Kilgrave AKA Purple Man. Check out the image below.

Lots of people were wondering how this character was going to work in the more realistic setting that Daredevil posed in the first season, since they both take place in the same universe. Instead of having a purple face and body, he just wears a bunch of purple clothes. What do you think of the outfit?

Jessica Jones is set to hit Netflix in December of 2015

I think the most likely outcome from this image is that this is either Kilgrave pre-powered and turns purple later on in the show Or they are gonna keep it sorta realistic and not give him the purple skin but will give him the mind control powers.

Going to be tough living up to the hype that Daredevil has placed on all of the Netflix series.

I so hope he somehow turns purple skinned. What hope is there for a comic accurate MODOK without a purpled skinned man first? Embrace the crazy Marvel.

@morioh_jo98: I'm assuming realistic considering in Daredevil Owlsley has no powers (and is never called the Owl), Fisk never is called "Kingpin" and Melvin Potter didn't get his Gladiator suit or his name either. These shows seem to want to downplay the comic book elements as much as possible.

I like it, and after Daredevil I'm excited to see where Marvel goes with this leading into The Defenders crossover.

He probably denied the role because they asked him to loose some weight.

Exactly. It's not like there are many roles for purple people in Hollywood. Why take one of their roles.

@thatlyn_yoaeg_ill_rymmin: My bet is on purple eyes while pheromoning. Possibly not even at first, but then something happens, he goes full purple and becomes insane.

I wasn't excited for Luke Cage or Jessica Jones. Then Daredevil happened.

Now? It can't come fast enough.

In this more realistic world, he will probably just turn purple every time he uses his powers. He can easily blend in that way, instead of being a purple dude walking down a street.

I have a feeling this is just him before he gets the powers. That or he is commanding everyone to see him with normal skin

Seeing the other leaps Marvel has taken with this universe, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that this is pre-transformation Killgrave, not Purple Man proper. I mean, we got 12 episodes without Daredevil in costume. Marvel is teaching me some patience.

I love people who snap to a negative judgement based on a Twitter or Instagram Pic - There is no context, or understanding to the picture other than he has purple pants.

We should all be giddy over the fact that our comic books are coming to the Big Screen/TV - Regardless of which brand they came from.

Rejoice Nerds!!!

He better turn purple at some point and time. Maybe he has tech to hide his apperance or maybe he can turn back and forth. That purple face is pretty Iconic. Also he better do horrible sexual things to Jessica Jones(sorry Jessica).

@dan12456: I'm thinking Leeland Owlsley's often mentioned Son might become the Owl. Leeland is just to old I think.
