With the rights to people like Daredevil and the rest of The defenders everything is ready to return to Marvel Studios soon, rumors are circulating about their return. If the most recent rumor turns out to be true, it could mean Krysten Ritter’s role as Jessica Jones in upcoming Disney + series, She-Hulk.
Krysten Ritter starred as the titular Jessica Jones for three seasons on Netflix, as well as the spin-off miniseries The defenders, between 2015 and 2019. The actress has been praised for her performance as the former superhero who, after suffering from PTSD, decides to open her own private detective agency.
She-Hulk meanwhile is due to debut on Disney + and will be run by Silicone valley and Rick and Morty alum Jessica Gao. The series is directed by Kat Coiro (It’s always sunny in Philadelphia) and Anu Valia (A.P. Bio). The show is set to shine Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany as the titular character and will focus on Jennifer Walters (played by Maslany), a lawyer and cousin of Bruce Banner. Jennifer inherits Banner’s Hulk powers after receiving a blood transfusion from him, but, unlike Bruce Banner, Jennifer is able to maintain most of her personality, intelligence and, crucially, emotional control when she breaks away.
“It’s a series about a woman who tries to navigate the world and be considered a working professional, despite being over 6’7 – and green,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said during the presentation. Marvel at the recent Disney Investor Day event. The Marvel boss called the series ‘very funny’ before teasing the arrival of other characters from the MCU. “Since Jennifer Walters is a lawyer who specifically specializes in superhero-focused lawsuits, you never know what Marvel characters will appear from episode to episode,” Feige said.
Feige has also described the series as a ‘half-hour legal comedy’ and something Marvel Studios has’ never done before ‘, revealing that the show will draw inspiration and’ stay true ‘to writer’s’ 80s. artist John Byrne She-Hulk run, which took a semi-satirical approach to the character, even making her one of the few Marvel characters who can break the fourth wall.
While the return of the feisty former Ritter superhero would come as a surprise if it happened so soon, it’s not without precedent, with Kevin Feige recently revealing that the characters from the respective Netflix series are “on the plate”.
“Everything is on the plate,” said Feige The defenders making a comeback. “That’s one of the great things about the comics is that characters appear and disappear and come and go. It’s all inspiration for the future. There are some great characters and actors from those shows.”
She-Hulk’s legal escapades could very well lead to Jessica Jones’s return to the MCU, with the superhero attorney perhaps seeking the help of a P.I. on a case. If this turns out to be Marvel’s plan, it would certainly be a crowd pleaser moment.
She-Hulk is expected to debut on Disney + sometime in 2022. The series is just one of many original content set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be released on Disney + soon, including WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, Mrs. Marvel, Moon Knight, What if…?, Iron heart, Secret invasion, and Armor Wars. This comes from the fairly reliable scooper Daniel Richtman.
