Rumor: Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones to appear in ‘SHE-HULK’
In 2019, Netflix released the third and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones. The series starred Krysten Ritter as detective Jessica Jones, a woman haunted by her traumatic past with extraordinary abilities. Jessica then settles in New York City after an accident ended her career as a superhero and she opened up Alias Investigations, her own detective agency focused on solving cases involving people who have special abilities like her.
Since her final appearance as the character, fans have been anxiously waiting to see whether or not Marvel Studios will step up to the plate and save the Netflix characters in some shape or form, and include them into the larger scale MCU. While fans may have to wait until February 2021 for the rights to Jessica Jones to revert back to Marvel Studios, we already may have our first hint at when this vigilante badass could pop up in the MCU.
A tweet by @MarvelNewsHub, sourcing Daniel Richtman, states that Krysten Ritter is RUMORED to appear in the Disney+ streaming series She-Hulk, reprising her role as Jessica Jones for the Disney+ show.

Now, again, the keyword here is RUMORED. None of this has been confirmed, although Daniel’s reputation certainly precedes him. Nonetheless, if Ritter were to appear in the upcoming She-Hulk series, I’d expect her to appear as a rebooted version of the character, with no link to the previous Netflix version beyond the same actress portraying the character. It’s been already told multiple times that Kevin Feige is not interested in incorporating Loeb’s Marvel TV properties into the MCU, but he didn’t say anything about rebooting them. This isn’t the only time a Defender from Marvel TV has been brought into the MCU. An example of this is the news that our very own Charles V. broke regarding Charlie Cox appearing as Matt Murdock in the upcoming Spider-Man 3 film, due out 2021. Whatever the case may be, we’re definitely ready to see if this unbreakable superhero make her way back to our TV screens in 2022 when She-Hulk premieres on Disney+.
