The two had been a part of the series, where Ritter played the title character. Jessica Jones is a private detective with superpowers like superstrength and limited flight. The series also introduced another Marvel hero, Luke Cage. It was played by Mike Colter. Later, he got his own spin-off series, after season 1 of Jessica Jones ended.

In the first season, the two characters had shared a fling. The two also share a romantic relationship in the Marvel comic books. But the two ended up separating after Luke discovered that Jessica had killed his wife. That was when she was under Kilgrave’s control, the mind-controlling villain. The two were again seen together in the series, The Defenders, along with Daredevil and Iron Fist. Mike Colter also made a guest appearance in the finale of season 3. Now, the fans want them to make an MCU debut. And the post together just sparked the rumors.

It is yet not sure if the two would really be reprising their Netflix roles for MCU. The studio has not released an official statement on the same. But we have seen Charlie Cox reprise his role as Matt Mudrock/Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Also, Vincent D’Onfrio reprised his role as Wilson Fisk for the Disney+ series Hawkeye. So, the fans can stay hopeful that the two might come back as well.

At the beginning of the year, the Marvel lineup of Netflix originals left the platform. The list included Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher. The shows would soon be available for streaming on Disney+.
