Krysten Ritter's latest Instagram Stories post has led to speculation that the actress is set to reprise the role of Jessica Jones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter has dropped a few teases about her potential return as the hard-drinking PI in the past, but the actress' latest Instagram post is easily her most blatant hint yet that Miss Jones will be making the jump to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ritter shared a brief video clip of herself in the same t-shirt Jones wore in an episode of the now defunct Netflix series, along with the caption IYKYK (if you know, you know).

Though there's a chance Ritter is just having some fun with her followers, we'd say Jessica Jones' imminent return to our screens is a pretty safe bet.

Here's what Ritter had to say about possibly reprising the role during a 2022 interview.

"I would absolutely just die to play Jessica again. I had the best time doing it and I just love her so much. I'm so proud of that character. Not only because it was like a great role and she's such a bad-ass, but that character has really resonated with people in a way that I don't know who else has. Really, really resonated with women and girls, trauma survivors. It's just so, so big and such a thing I'm so grateful to have been a part of."

"So if there's ever an opportunity for me to put on those boots, I will be there in a flash."

There were rumors that Ritter filmed scenes as Jones for Echo before they were cut, but that's yet to be confirmed. If the super-strong Defender is set for a comeback, we'd say a role in Daredevil: Born Again seems most likely.

We do know that Born Again will feature the return of Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle, aka The Punisher. Last we heard, The Punisher writer Dario Scardapane had come aboard as the project's new showrunner, but that's yet to be made official.

Specific plot details are still under wraps, but we know that Born Again will see Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) face-off against his old nemesis the Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio), and some recent set photos confirmed rumors that both Elden Henson and Deborah Ann Woll will reprise their respective roles as Foggy Nelson and Karen Page from the Netflix series.

The show is not expected to run for the originally announced 18 episodes. A recent rumor claimed that it would likely air 9 (possibly 6) episodes before taking a mid-season break.

The upcoming Disney+ series doesn't have an official release date yet.

I would love for her and Luke to return and both be retired vigilantes because they are raising their child. But Fisk's violent regime and laws brings the violence to their doorstep and both heroes must rejoin Matt in trying to build a new team of Defenders to fight back.

@SonOfAGif - That's the street level finale we need. The build is with these characters will be cool, also if they can get Spider-Man in the mix with Sony's approval. I know Finn isn't a favourite, but they'd have to bring back his Danny Rand right? I dont mind him, i just thought it was the writing was weak for Iron Fist.

@UniqNo - I feel like writing the OG Defenders team out is the better approach to bring them back in. For example since they have all been dormant in the MCU (Now that they're canon) it makes sense that Danny Rand went back to Kun'Lun, Jessica and Luke had a child and retired, and Matt has been the only active hero and he tried to reform the team once Fisk escaped prison during the Blip but Rand was MIA and Luke and Jess became parents.

@SonOfAGif - They should just retcon them to hooking up a decade earlier and then Michelle Jones can be their child and the MCU version of Danni Cage.
SonOfAGif
SonOfAGif - 1/30/2024, 1:51 PM
@ObserverIO - The problem with that is it would sort of defeat the turmoil she went through in No Way Home. If she has two super powered parents, why weren't they involved with her protection from people? And I feel like Matt Murdock specifically would have pushed for her to stay away from Peter.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 1/30/2024, 3:43 PM
@SonOfAGif - Well the turmoil was really from people turning against Spidey for murdering Mysterio. I'm guessing that her mother is not only a registered PI, but also registered with the Sokovia Accords and this gives both her practice and her family protection.
Her real father, Luke Cage would be in prison and her step-father would be Philip Watson and just like in the comics, he would be a asshole, abusive drunk and that's why she refuses to call herself Watson and instead calls herself by Jones, her mother's name.

@ObserverIO - If every Netflix show is now canon, It wouldn't work. Peter's birthday is August 10th, 2001 as stated on his passport in Far From Home. He was 16 at the time. So let's say he's 17 in No Way Home, that means He and MJ had to be 11 years old during the Battle of NY in 2012. We know the Netflix shows were placed after The Avengers. So how did Luke and Jess have an 11 year old in secret when they first met in Jessica Jones season 1?
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 1/30/2024, 7:39 PM
@SonOfAGif - Yeah it wouldn't work if they were canon. Just another good reason to softboot instead. It would be so much better to make DD S1-3 soft canon and reboot everything else.

Considering how much folks love her, they're not going to not jump at it in the multiverse saga, especially with Cox and Bernthal already in tow.

Didn't she post to Insta a different tease literally years ago? She was always coming back. But now that Charlie, Deborah, Wilson, Elden, Jon and Vincent are all back it's a foregone conclusion.

@TheManWithoutFear - It's pretty much a sure thing now that the others are coming back. And she was rumored to be the other Defender to make an appearance before Bernthal, but her schedule was conflicting with the shoot. But that was before the strike and overhaul of the production. She's probably available now.

Jessica Jones Season 1 was one of the best Netflix shows, loved The Purple Man.

@marvel72 - He was quite possibly the scariest MCU villain.

@bobevanz - Yup that's why I said Season 1,that was so good.
mountainman
mountainman - 1/30/2024, 4:45 PM
@marvel72 - That’s a fair list. I’d say Purple Man is scarier just because he can force people to do anything. I guess hypothetically Thanks with the full Gauntlet could do, but he isn’t known to do that. Well I guess Scarlet Witch can as well now lol. Either way, Purple Man was so well done.
marvel72
marvel72 - 1/30/2024, 5:18 PM
@mountainman - For me it was the acting and how good a villain they were.

But yeah Purple Man I can how scary he could be if he wanted to take it to.Kingpin for me was just what he could do to you physically, not what we got in Echo.
mountainman
mountainman - 1/30/2024, 6:44 PM
@marvel72 - Or Hawkeye. So far MCU Kingpin has been pretty lame.

Season 1 of Jessica Jones was great, and Ritter killed in the role, so this is a win for me.

Luke Cage...I could take or leave Mike Colter. He was fine in the role, but far from perfect.

And as for Danny Rand...I don't know if it was the actor I didn't like or the characterization of Rand (he should have been much more enthusiastic and far less brooding), but the less said about him, the better.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 1/30/2024, 11:08 AM
@SheepishOne - I liked Colter as that version of Luke (though I know some didn’t like the characterization) and I think Danny’s characterization improved to an extent with LC S2 being his peak imo as did Finn’s performance.

I do think they were at their best , especially Danny when they were together though so I hope we get a Heroes for Hire show atleast because I felt they had good chemistry.

SheepishOne
SheepishOne - 1/30/2024, 11:11 AM
@TheVisionary25 - Yea, I think I had a bigger issue with the characterization of Luke, rather than with Colter himself.

I agree that both Luke and Danny were at their best together. Despite my not liking Danny as a character, I do remember thinking that both actors had good chemistry together.

Danny just needs some charisma, and while I didn't hate the characterization of Luke Cage, he's very different from my interpretation from the comics. He was a bit too "Captain Harlem", but I get it. I just prefer Luke having a greater sense of humor and not being as much of a boy scout.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 1/30/2024, 11:17 AM
@SheepishOne - that’s fair

I had heard the showrunner wanted to avoid the angry black man stereotype that Luke apparently can be viewed as by some which I get.

I think Finn was most comfortable playing the lighter , zen Danny then the troubled serious side and when the writing focused on the former moreso , he shined imo

@SheepishOne - Her season 1 should be used as the prime example for Marvel on how to do a good story with a female lead.

Looks like Cavill's finally getting some good material to work with. He's actually laughing. 🤣.

Though i'm sure it's going to draw comparison to Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards.

Hopefully she gets a little more to do than Scooby Doo this mess and make sarcastic remarks. I’d like to see her kick some arse.

I haven’t seen Kristen in much but I just watched Breaking Bad and was surprised she had a softer, more feminine voice instead of the surly, cynical voice that she had in JJ.

I thought she was great as Jessica and would totally watch her in the MCU even though the last season was basically unwatchable.

@WhatIfRickJames - Her role in BB is so tragic.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 1/30/2024, 11:14 AM
S1 of JJ was one of the stronger Marvel Netflix seasons imo and while the subsequent 2 were divisive to say the least , I still found enjoyment to an extent in them aswell so I’m down for this!!.

Krysten especially was one of if not the biggest reason for my enjoyment of the show (besides Tennant in S1)…

She was great as this sardonic , cynical, broken and reluctant hero!!.
