Krysten Ritter recently spoke on the possibility of returning as Jessica Jones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe while talking to Michael Rosenbaum on his Inside of You With Michael Rosenbaum podcast, with a discussion on the recent return of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin. Jon Bernthal was also confirmed recently to be returning as Frank Castle, aka Marvel’s Punisher, it has become apparent that Marvel Studios are planning on bringing back the Netflix-Marvel cast from The Defenders era that also included Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Finn Jones as the Iron Fist.
While talking on the podcast, Rosenbaum asked Ritter if there will be any chance fans of the series will be seeing Jessica Jones on their screens once again, to which she responded “I have no idea; I hope so! I think that people love Jessica; I know because I live it. Marvel is so secretive – I am just putting that out there that, of course, I would be there in a second. I would have my boots and jacket ready to rock.”, confirming once again that she would be more than up to return to play the role of the crime-fighting private investigator. Ritter’s performance in the Jessica Jones series that was originally home to Netflix, now streaming on Disney Plus, has garnered a fan following who still remain vocal to this day on hopes that Ritter will also get her big MCU return, such as her The Defenders co-star, Charlie Cox.
This isn’t the first time that Ritter has spoken out on her desire to return to the role, still sharing appreciation posts about Jessica Jones to her social account from time to time, with speculation not too long ago that she may already be up for a part in Daredevil: Born Again, and could just be playing coy to prevent the major spoiler from spilling to the MCU fandom community. However, as of writing, there has not been any official announcement from the cast and crew of any Marvel Studios project that Ritter will be returning anytime soon as Jessica Jones.
Daredevil: Born Again would most likely be the project to see Ritter return, or at least to set up a future appearance via the usage of clever dialogue, as the series has been confirmed to have a whopping 18 episodes, making it the longest MCU series to come to Disney Plus yet, with prior MCU series typically only having around 6-8 episodes. It could be safe to assume a small appearance from Ritter, with Bernthal returning as the Punisher and D’Onofrio as Kingpin, it’s just a guessing game as to how many more names the Daredevil reboot will add to its impressive list of cast members. Daredevil: Born Again is currently filming in various locations around New York, with filming set to end later this year, the series will not only break episode-count records for Marvel Studios but also the record for how long the reboot’s production will last, the new series is expected to release in 2024 exclusively on Disney Plus.
