New Sparks Photo Theories About Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ MCU Return


The MCU is getting more expansive than ever during Phase 4, finally including characters who were first seen in Marvel TV’s old Netflix shows a few years ago. During the same week, Charlie Cox’s Daredevil had a memorable scene in Spider-Man: No Coming Home while Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin turned out to be the big bad of Hawk Eye in episodes 5 and 6. Now, the next in line could potentially be Netflix’s biggest power couple: Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.

While it remains a mystery if these two heroes’ solo shows will be revived and made canon within the MCU, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige used his classic catchphrase “never say never” when asked about the possibility in early 2021. Additionally, given that fans enjoyed seeing Mike Colter and Krysten Ritter’s portrayal of both characters, their potential inclusion in the MCU canon cannot not be left out.


In March 2022, Ritter even fueled theories about a potential return to her role as Jessica Jones by sharing footage of herself wearing an awfully Jessica Jones ensemble for an undisclosed reason.

Now she’s been brought to social media again with another image that’s already sparking new ideas about a potential comeback three years after her last appearance on Netflix.
