Krysten Ritter Comments on Social Media Clues Indicating Her Return as Jessica Jones in the MCU

Krysten Ritter Hints at a Comeback in Iconic Marvel Character

It’s widely known now that the release of ‘Echo’ has established Netflix’s Defenders Saga as canon. The main motivation for this announcement was likely the upcoming release of ‘Daredevil: Born Again.’ After extensive revisions, it has been decided that rather than being a reboot, the show will continue the story from Netflix’s previous series.

Given that the ‘Daredevil’ show was interconnected with almost all other shows, either directly or indirectly, the Defenders Saga must be considered canon. Among the most prominent shows and characters in the Defenders was ‘Jessica Jones,’ portrayed by Krysten Ritter.

Over the past few months, Ritter has hinted at her return as Jessica Jones multiple times. Initially, she shared a picture of herself with purple hair, reminiscent of the comic-accurate Jessica Jones during her time as Jewel. Later, she posted a photo wearing Jessica’s “Save Our Souls” shirt with a cryptic caption, “IYKYK.”

As you can see, those teases were quite bold, but Ritter emphasizes in her latest interview with Collider that they were all just for fun and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

No, I didn’t. I have the shirt. It’s a great t-shirt. It’s one of my favorites and I was wearing it. I was like, ‘Oh, cute! Is anyone gonna recognize my shirt?’ But yeah, I did notice that it made some waves. That was fun. That means a lot to me, as well. The character means so much to me, as well. It’s funny that one little thoughtless Instagram story of my cute t-shirt that I love [got that reaction].

As of now, there’s been no confirmation or even rumors about Jessica Jones in the MCU. However, given the immense excitement surrounding ‘Daredevil: Born Again,’ perhaps the studio will reconsider other character revivals.
