Could Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and other characters enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe down the line? It doesn’t seem out of the question.
During Disney Plus’ Television Critics Association press day on Wednesday, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was asked if they had “a story with Jessica Jones” if they could make that happen.
“I think we probably could,” Feige said. “I’m not sure. There are always rumors online about things reverting. Sometimes that’s true. Sometimes it’s not.”
“I’m not exactly sure of the exact contracts,” Feige added, referencing if a story like that would be even possible because of the ownership rights with other studios like Netflix and ABC Studios. “But perhaps someday.”
Netflix and Marvel teamed up to do a series of original shows – “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” and “The Punisher” – from 2015 to 2019. The first four series joined together in a special called “The Defenders” on the streamer in 2017.
Ever since Netflix and Marvel’s joint projects were canceled in 2018 and 2019, fans have been wondering whether or not we could see some of those characters again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially when and if the character rights reverted back to Marvel Studios.
Fans famously started a #SaveDaredevil petition after the fan-favorite series was canceled in 2018. “Daredevil” star Charlie Cox and “Loki” actor Tom Hiddleston also vocally supported the movement with Cox actually declaring “Save Daredevil” on stage at a 2019 Marvel event Insider attended to commemorate the life of Marvel’s Stan Lee.
Over the past week, Comicbook.com, IGN, and more comic-book outlets have reported that the live-action rights to Jessica Jones and the Punisher have reverted back to Marvel Studios after a multi-year deal with Netflix concluded.
There have also been reports that Matt Murdoch may return to cameo in either Sony and Marvel’s upcoming “Spider-Man 3: No Way Home” or “She-Hulk.” Feige confirmed on Wednesday the latter will start filming in a few weeks.
“I am here on set now where we are finishing up ‘Ms. Marvel.’ We are also shooting Hawkeye,'” Feige added of the superhero series following the Pakistani-American teen from New Jersey and a second series following Jeremy Renner’s Avengers character and a younger protegé played by Hailee Steinfeld.
“Currently, in a few weeks, we start ‘She-Hulk,’ and a week or so after that we start ‘Moon Knight,’ in addition to our features,” he continued. “So, it’s a very exciting time for the MCU.”
Marvel’s “She-Hulk” comedy stars Tatiana Maslany as lawyer Jennifer Walters. “Moon Knight,” however, will be an action-adventure story centered around a mercenary who lives with multiple identities inside of him.
We’ve already seen Disney integrate an X-Men character in Evan Peters’ Quicksilver over to the MCU, so it seems like anything may be possible. With “Spider-Man 3,” starring Tom Holland, being released on December 25, seeing the return of Matt Murdoch/Daredevil would certainly be a treat for fans.
