Krysten Ritter played the role of Jessica Jones in all three seasons while also serving as the main role in The Defenders (2017).

Jessica Jones is an ex-superhero who later starts working as a private investigator and opens her detective agency, Alias Investigations.

Krysten Ritter has spoken a few times about how she is open to the idea of returning as Jessica Jones. But nothing was said by Marvel on this matter which could make fans believe that she is going to play the role again. Even then, seeing how there is a whole list of MCU characters to get introduced in the She-Hulk series, it could be a place for Ritter to have her own true MCU debut.

During an interview with Tara Hitchcock, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law director, Kat Coiro, expressed her views regarding the appearances of many characters, among them one was of Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones.

She first jokingly said that it would be great if Thor were to be on the show (we wouldn’t even be surprised at this point if he does make an appearance in the show) but then stated that Jessica Jones would be a ‘good addition’.

“Well, put that out there! Let’s have Thor come visit She-Hulk! I think the person who I think most organically fits into the world is in the show. I actually think Jessica Jones would be a good addition.”

She further says while praising the MCU characters on how flexible they were with their acting as she was bringing a more lighter version of these characters on her show.

“Every single existing MCU character who came into this show had to make the adjustment from being in things that are much more serious to be in something that is tonally more outrageous. And they’re all such wonderful actors and all so adept at adjusting, but it was definitely fun to watch that transition and fun to watch them go ‘Oh, it’s ok for me to do this?’ The biggest question they all ask me is ‘Am I going too far?’ And I would say ‘Absolutely not! Go further!”

The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, also said this about the MCU characters:

“you never know what Marvel character is gonna pop up from episode to episode.”

Daredevil and Kingpin have already established themselves in Phase 4. Both of these characters became a hot topic in the MCU thanks to their respective appearances in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye at the end of 2021.

So now rumours are circulating saying that Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones is already set for a role alongside Charlie Cox’s Daredevil in 2023’s Echo. But this doesn’t mean that Jessica Jones could not make an appearance now? Jessica Jones, who is a private investigator, and Jennifer Walters, who is a lawyer, lead to the possibility of them crossing paths together.

Who knows what kind of more surprises the She-Hulk series has in store for us?


She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is set to release on August 8, 2022, on Disney+.
