The new Echo series has given rise to a lot of speculations. Not only would it continue the plot of the character established in Hawkeye, but it may also give Charlie Cox’s return as Daredevil even more screen time. The main revelation, though, is that Charlie Cox‘s Daredevil is actively seeking his fellow Defender, Jessica Jones.
The second Marvel television series on Netflix, Jessica Jones, ran for three seasons until being abruptly canceled along with the rest of the roster. Since then, the Krysten Ritter-played title character has vanished. According to a recent report, the upcoming Disney+ original series Echo from Marvel Studios may pave the way for Krysten Ritter’s comeback as Jessica Jones.
How could Jessica Jones make a return in the Echo series?
Many predict that the Echo series will focus on Maya’s retaliation against the Kingpin for ordering the Ronin to kill her father. If this is the case, she will need all the assistance she can get to defeat the formidable gang leader, which may include Jessica Jones’ employment as a private investigator who may look into Wilson Fisk’s illegal activities in an effort to expose him to the public.
According to James Clement (aka Mr. Sunday Movies) of The Weekly Planet, sources say that “Daredevil is in [Echo] for three episodes, as in Charlie Cox. Kingpin, Vinnie D’Onofrio is in four.” He also added that “Daredevil is also going to be rocking a red and black suit and is looking for Jessica Jones.”
Krysten Ritter’s private investigator won’t necessarily show up in person in Echo itself, according to Clement, even if a Jessica Jones comeback appears to be approaching. Furthermore, it’s also unclear if the series would maintain the continuity of the respective Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
“So they’re laying the groundwork to bring back Ritter, most likely,” Clement said. “Not necessarily in this series… so yeah, there you go. I don’t know in terms of continuity like is the Charlie Cox version the same one, even though we obviously saw him in Spider-Man… [Is he the] same one from the Netflix series? Sure, why not? But I don’t know, but it seems like some of the Netflix stuff, with probably the exception of Iron Fist, is going to be making its way…”
It should be noted that early this year, all of Marvel’s Netflix original series—including Jessica Jones—migrated to Disney+. In a curious development, it was recently discovered that Disney+ has changed Jessica Jones’ title card to read “A.K.A. Jessica Jones,” a nod to the naming scheme for the show’s individual episodes. However, it’s not yet apparent whether the title change represents Marvel’s future ambitions for the character, assuming any such plans do in fact exist.
