The star of Netflix’s Jessica Jones has teased the character’s return to the MCU as Daredevil: Born Again resumes production. Since the Netflix Defenders shows were added to the MCU’s timeline on Disney+, speculation has centered around the former productions being reintegrated into MCU canon. This discourse has been prevalent since the return of Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio to the franchise as Daredevil and Kingpin respectively, with many hoping Daredevil: Born Again‘s story would answer whether the Defenders – and Jessica Jones – is MCU canon.

The Netflix Marvel shows are on Disney+. With Daredevil: Born Again on the way, here’s the full watch order for The Defenders shows and The Punisher.

In light of this speculation, Krysten Ritter – the star of Netflix’s Jessica Jones – has teased an MCU return on her Instagram story (via Cosmic Marvel). Ritter took to Instagram to post a story of her donning a shirt that was worn by Jessica Jones in one of the episodes of the Netflix show. Accompanied by the abbreviation for “If you know, you know,” Ritter is seemingly hinting at Jessica’s long-awaited MCU return.


How Jessica Jones Would Perfectly Fit Daredevil: Born Again’s Story

The timing of this post from Ritter is certainly interesting given that the upcoming MCU TV show Daredevil: Born Again began filming in the same month. This coincidental timing has led to speculation that Ritter will return in the 2025 show. While this speculation is expected, it remains the case that Daredevil: Born Again‘s story would logically suit a return for Ritter as Jessica Jones. The ending of Marvel Studios’ Echo featured D’Onofrio’s Kingpin being notably intrigued by New York’s mayoral race which could see the villain become a legitimate power in the city in Daredevil: Born Again.

As established by Daredevil’s history with Kingpin, the former would want to take down the latter if this was the case. Similarly, Matt Murdock’s legal background could show the titular hero battling Fisk on two fronts. With Matt knowing that Fisk has a secret criminal empire, it would make sense for Daredevil to contact his superpowered private investigator ally, Jessica Jones, to dig up some dirt on Kingpin’s illicit activities. This would offer the perfect opportunity for Jessica Jones‘ MCU revival without overshadowing Daredevil: Born Again‘s story with Ritter’s return.
