Daredevil: Born Again recently secured a March 2025 release on Disney+ and fans remain eager to see which characters from the Man Without Fear's past join him in the MCU. 

Jon Bernthal's Punisher has already been confirmed to appear alongside Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock, though rumours of Krysten Ritter showing up as Jessica Jones are still swirling. Recently, the actress appeared to confirm that with an Instagram post which saw her decked out in Jessica's "Save Our Souls" t-shirt from the show. 

However, her "IYKYK" caption might not have held as much meaning as some fans hoped. 

Asked by Collider whether she realised the speculation about an MCU return that post would create, Ritter responded, "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."

As for how it felt to see that level of support, she added, "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]."

Ritter stopped short of commenting on a possible return in Daredevil: Born Again or any other upcoming MCU project but we'd say it's likely. That series still seems like the best place to make it happen as we're sure Matt will need her help in his war with Mayor Fisk.

Last April, Ritter responded positively when asked if she was open to returning as Jessica. "I have no idea; I hope so! I think that people love Jessica; I know because I live it," she said. "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."

Her return has been made even more likely by Marvel Studios' decision to make its Netflix TV shows (which were produced by Marvel Television) officially part of the MCU's "canon."

We've long heard rumblings about plans for Jessica to return, and while it didn't happen in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law or Echo, we'd put money on seeing her again in Daredevil: Born Again (if not in the first half of the series, definitely the second). 

As always, stay tuned for updates.

Only problem I have with continuing her show is that it's disney that's controlling the show now. I don't want jessica jones to become another girl boss.

@Origame - It was also Disney controlling the show then, as it was produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television. It was just streamed on Netflix.

@Urubrodi - yeah but that was back when they could actually write good female characters.

@Origame - Well after the complete failures of both She-Hulk and The Marvels, let's hope they learned their lesson.

@Urubrodi - after Bob iger had his job saved they immediately announced the female silver surfer.

They learned nothing.

@Origame - My hope with that is that since they apparently will come from a different reality that the “real” Silver Surfer will exist in 616.

I hope we do see her again eventually , whether that’s sooner or later…

I always liked her in the role aswell as her version of Jessica regardless of how the show itself turned out for some (personally also found enjoyment in the later seasons even though S1 remained the strongest imo).

By bringing her back and having it be a continuation of the Netflix show , you could use Benjamin Kilgrave or The Purple Children as antagonists given her personal ties to Purple Man.
