Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones is reportedly filming her own solo series on Disney Plus next year. It’s been reported by Giant Freakin Robot that a new Jessica Jones reboot series will start shooting sometime in 2024.
Many wondered if the entire Defenders would be coming back. Ever since Netflix cancelled their Marvel-related shows, many fans worried that we would never see them again.
The first hope we’ve seen is Charlie Cox returning as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Not only that, but the villain Kingpin, played by Vincent D’ Onofrio, returned to reprise his role in Hawkeye. Not long after, Marvel announced that Daredevil would be having his own series again. And more recently, we saw Daredevil in action in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
It’s the first sign. Now many of us hope, would we see the other members of the Defenders as well? Our own insiders have reported that Jon Bernthal will be returning as the Punisher. They are slowly coming back one by one. Although, we’re not sure if all of them will ever get the chance to return.
A New Jessica Jones Series Reportedly Filming Next Year
Jessica Jones is one of the best Marvel shows that Netflix made. I personally consider this as second best to Charlie Cox’s Daredevil series. The only reason why I had some problems with the series is because of the pacing from season two onwards. Jessica Jones Season one is one of my favourites, and I’m happy to know she could be back in the MCU.
There have been reports that Krysten Ritter would return to play Jessica Jones in the new Daredevil series subtitled Born Again. The rumour that Jessica Jones is back caught some wind when she took a selfie that had her change her hair colour to black with faint purple highlights last year.
More recently, she took another selfie wearing a shirt with the double D symbol. As Marvel fans know, this is the symbol of Daredevil, and the picture could be a clue that she’s in the show.
However, Jessica Jones was also rumoured to be part of She-Hulk. At the time, it did make sense since she was a paralegal. But we never saw her. We’re unsure if this was because of scheduling conflicts or if Marvel wanted to delay her showing up. But it does make sense if you think about when Ritter changed her hair colour.
Krysten Ritter Returns As Jessica Jones In New Series
Nothing has been confirmed about her return. No official word from Marvel as of yet. So far, it’s just rumours and insider reports. We’ve reported this ourselves too. But the rumours have weight, mainly because of the return of both Daredevil and Kingpin.
GFR has also reported that Kevin Feige not only approved of Krysten Ritter’s return but also will be filming her own solo series by next year. Considering Marvel’s Daredevil is in production for close to a full year, we wonder how Jessica Jones will fit into Marvel’s schedule.
If it’s filming next year, could the new series be a part of Marvel’s phase 6 plans? And Jessica Jones could also be part of some bigger narrative in the MCU.
Netflix’s Jessica Jones lasted three seasons. The series ended with its main arc for the season solved, but it did leave questions hanging.
If they ever do release her own solo series, would they give her the treatment they are doing for Daredevil? If Matt Murdock gets a soft reboot, will it mean that the not-so-sober private investigator gets it too?
Also, will they bring in familiar characters from the Netflix run? Are they going to continue the plot point of Jessica having to face her best friend Trish Walker? Will it also introduce Hellcat?
