Marvel’s Jessica Jones trended on Twitter on Monday as fans reacted to the rumours that the role could be recast.
As reported by Comic Book, the news that some of the characters from the Marvel/Netflix shows could be recast didn’t go down too well.
Many fans let their feelings known about the possibility of Jessica Jones being recast.
Krysten Ritter would be “thrilled” to reprise Jessica Jones role
Krysten Ritter portrayed Jessica Jones in three seasons of the Marvel/Netflix series.
She also played the role in a Defenders miniseries.
In an interview to Comic Book, Ritter revealed her love for the character and would jump at the chance to reprise her role:
I absolutely love Jessica more than anything. And I loved those years playing her. If there was ever an opportunity for her to pop up anywhere, I would be the first [to say yes]. I may or may not have the jacket ready to go in my closet. So, you never know, but if I ever had the opportunity to play her again, I would be so thrilled.
The reaction from the fans speaks for itself as to who they want to see play Jessica in the MCU:

Given that we have seen a couple of characters from the Netflix shows reprise their roles in the MCU, fans of Jessica Jones should hope that these recasting rumours are just rumours.
The casting for those shows was on point, so hopefully we will see Ritter get to don that leather jacket once more.
