New posts from Jessica Jones‘ Krysten Ritter revealed her training in the gym amid rumors she may be returning to the MCU in Daredevil: Born Again.
With Born Again finally bringing Charlie Cox’s Daredevil back to the spotlight alongside a host of surprise characters, many are wondering what the future holds for the rest of the Defenders gang. Among the most discussed is Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones who, much like Daredevil, led three seasons on her own on Netflix.
Previous reports have claimed Cox’s Daredevil will be on the search for Ritter’s Jessica Jones in Echo, setting her up to return in Born Again. However, the latest rumors may have put an end to that talk as they indicated Jones may be replaced, potentially by Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, due to scheduling conflicts for Ritter.
Naturally, that led talk to die down, until a recent selfie from Ritter, who seemingly just wrapped shooting on her only current project, Orphan Black: Echoes, resurged rumors of her imminent MCU return.
Jessica Jones MCU Return Rumors Surge Again
Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter shared several photos to her Instagram story on January 4 (posted to Twitter by @DDBA_BRA). The imaged added fuel to the fire of rumors that she may be returning to the MCU in Daredevil: Born Again or another upcoming project.
Although Ritter was sharing videos in the gym throughout much of 2022, she can be seen in this latest batch of images wearing a Daredevil t-shirt which features the iconic superhero logo alongside the phrase “Choose Justice.”
@Perfectshots247 replied to the images, sharing hopes for Jessica Jones to be a “surprise character” in Daredevil: Born Again, pointing out that most of the previous MCU Disney+ series has featured an unexpected cameo character:
“YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS please let her be the “surprise character” of the series (every Marvel series has one). I prefer her than the Punisher because the Punisher can be introduced in other projects and having Jessica Jones appear in the DD makes room for using the other Netflix series”
The Hollywood Handle also shared Ritter’s selfies, pointing out that filming for Born Again will begin next month in February:
“Krysten Ritter posted on her Instagram story, working out at the gym using a Daredevil T-shirt. Filming for ‘DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN’ starts in 1 month…”
@TheNerdSaga speculated that the entire Netflix Marvel cast of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist will all return with their original actors:
“Let’s be real, Luke, Jessica, and Danny are all coming back and Mike, Krysten, and Finn are playing them.”
@vesoludiq noted the potential scenario that Jessica Jones may return alongside Daredevil, but not his Netflix sidekicks of Karen Paige and Foggy Nelson:
“Imagine the bring jessica jones but not karen and foggy”
Ritter was scheduled to film Orphan Black: Echoes in Toronto, Canada, from August to December 2022. As that series has likely wrapped, the actress currently doesn’t have any publically known projects scheduled to film imminently.
