Fans Are Losing It After Krysten Ritter Confirmed To Make MCU Debut as Jessica Jones

We were all shouting at the top of our lungs when we saw Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in No Way Home. Like Cox, another Netflix Marvel star we want to see in the MCU is Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones. With Marvel Studios bringing home the rights to the Netflix Defenders-Verse, it was only a matter of time before the Netflix Marvel heroes showed up. After Daredevil, turns out the next Marvel hero to make a MCU splash would be Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones in MCU. As reported by Screengeek, the actor is officially coming back to the MCU as Jessica Jones in a future Marvel project.

The Netflix Marvel shows were known to be significantly darker than the other Marvel shows of their time. They were grittier and much more violent, not the regular cup of joe Disney and Marvel Studios offer us. Krysten Ritter was arguably the second most fan favorite Marvel casting within the Netflix Marvel universe, the first being Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock aka Daredevil.

Jessica Jones would make quite a mark in the MCU within the small screen space. MCU Shows are becoming all the rage around town right now. Moon Knight has shown us the power of darker MCU shows. And upcoming shows like She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and Ms. Marvel help provide some much needed grounded clarity and street cred to the high and mighty heroes of the MCU. Jessica Jones is also a street level hero. She uses her powers as a private investigator. She is broken and flawed and Krysten Ritter’s magnificent portrayal of the superhero won praises all over the globe. The MCu could make use of her popularity.

Screengeek reports that Krysten Ritter as been confirmed to return to the MCU as Jessica Jones. But the source fails to specify in which MCU project will we see her in. Charlie Cox had the good fortune of playing the ‘really good lawyer’ in No Way Home. Ritter may not be as lucky to bag a cameo in a big movie project. Instead, it makes more sense for her to make an appearance in a small scale MCU project like She-Hulk or Echo. Marvel has used a similar formula in the past, debuting Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin in the Hawkeye series.

Krysten Ritter could be making a Jessica Jones cameo in a future MCU show before Marvel expands her role in the future. Reports suggest Disney+ is making a Daredevil Season 4 with Charlie Cox. She could make a larger appearance there once her character has been established well with a smaller cameo elsewhere.

The fan reactions say it all. Some are dazed. Some are confused. Many are still trying to make sense. But all of them are happy. Krysten Ritter deserves to hog the spotlight because boy she owned it back then playing Jessica Jones. The MCU should take note:

Some fans though weren’t as pleased. They believe MCU may ruin Jessica Jones the same way some fans claimed they ruined Moon Knight:
