• Krysten Ritter, who played Jessica Jones in the Netflix Marvel universe, hinted at her return in a recent Instagram post wearing Jessica Jones’ iconic shirt, sparking fan excitement.
  • Fans are eager to see Ritter reprise her role as Jessica Jones, as she was a beloved part of the Defenders dynamic and received praise for her strong character work and chemistry with Charlie Cox.
  • The potential return of Jessica Jones in Daredevil: Born Again may also pave the way for other characters from the Netflix Marvel shows, such as Luke Cage and Iron Fist, to make a comeback.

Jessica Jones actress Krysten Ritter may have hinted at her imminent MCU return in a photo that curiously coincides with Daredevil: Born Again resuming production after a significant creative overhaul.

Netflix’s Daredevil was the crown jewel of the streamer’s interconnected Marvel universe, a collection of shows centered on grounded, street-level heroes like Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones (Ritter) that cumulated in the miniseries The Defenders. Despite a conscious and painstaking effort to ensure that the shows adhered to MCU canon, Netflix’s offerings would not be brought into the fold until the addition of the shows to Disney Plus and the announcement of Daredevil: Born Again, a prospect that leading man Charlie Cox once called Kingpin Vincent D’Onofrio delusional for believing in.


Canceled Spider-Man Spinoff Movie May Still Happen After All

One Spider-Man spin-off movie is reportedly still being developed at Sony despite losing the actor who would have played the titular Marvel character.

While several people attached to Daredevil: Born Again were let go in an attempt to overhaul the show creatively, it recently resumed production, and recent activity on social media from one of Cox’s more prominent co-stars has set fans abuzz about a potential addition. Posting a video to her story on Instagram, Ritter showed herself rocking a t-shirt that fans of her lead role as Marvel heroine Jessica Jones will recognize as one worn by the character onscreen. Accompanying the post was the caption, “IYKYK” (if you know, you know) and a wink emoji, alongside a tag for the brand Givenchy, which many fans immediately took as confirmation that the star would be making her grand return to the role in Daredevil: Born Again.

Jessica Jones is easily one of the best parts of The Defenders and is one of the Netflix Marvel offerings the MCU should keep as far as many fans are concerned. In addition to her strong character work, fans lauded Ritter for her charisma with Cox, making her a key part of the Defenders dynamic. The desire to see the actress return is evident from the fan responses to the post and the conversations surrounding reposts of the hint. In addition to the return of Ritter’s Jessica Jones in Daredevil: Born Again, fans likely hope she’ll get her own standalone project again and carry on from where her original show left off. Her addition might also be a sign of things to come for fellow stars from Luke Cage and Iron Fist, the latter of which could be seeing a female lead replace Finn Jones as Iron Fist.

Fans can look forward to the treatment of characters in the upcoming Daredevil show, harkening back to the Netflix era, as Daredevil: Born Again set an MCU first by adding a showrunner alongside more restructuring to more closely resemble traditional production. How well the integration would go depends entirely on how Daredevil: Born Again plays with audiences.

Jessica Jones is now available on Disney Plus, and Daredevil: Born Again is currently set to debut on Disney Plus in 2025.
