Fans believe Punisher would not be the only character appearing in the series. Hence, many believe that Ritter can still make her comeback as Jessica Jones on Daredevil: Born Again, even if it’s just for a cameo.

Not only fans but Krysten Ritter is also excited to return as Jessica Jones, as she said during one of her interviews. During an interview with Screenrant in 2021, Krysten Ritter said that she loved the character and she would “absolutely just die to play Jessia again.”

While fans are excited to see Charlie Cox back as Daredevil, they were also eager to see Jessica Jones finally having her comeback. But this latest rumor seems to have dashed their hopes. They started questioning if Jessica Jones would have her return in the future. Many fans even said they would be happy as long as they get Jessica Jones back at some point. 

However, fans are happy with Punisher appearing in the show alongside Daredevil. But they are still questioning it as Disney will portray a lighter side of Daredevil, which might not sit well with Punisher tagging along. Many even pointed out that the series has a total of 18 episodes, so why can’t they have both of them in it?
