Krysten Ritter plays Jessica Jones, one of the most dynamic characters within all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Jessica Jones season 1 introduced viewers to the chaos of Jessica’s life as well as how she uses her strengths to overcome some of the darkest experiences she has had in the past.
Ritter has showcased her skill on a physical level in the series through some exciting action sequences. Ritter had to push her physicality even further when she joined Charlie Cox, Mike Colter and Finn Jones for the crossover event, The Defenders.
The actress is currently filming the second season of Jessica Jones, and has been hard at work bringing Jessica into a new life after the events of The Defenders. Ritter has exhibited some focus playing Jessica again, but she once dealt with a situation in which she was accidentally punched in the face and nearly biting through her tongue and passing out.
Ritter was recently interviewed by Women’s Health Magazine, in which she recounted the incident:
“You have to focus and be present… because if you aren’t present, you’re going to get hit in the face… I saw the blood everywhere, and I panicked.”
Thankfully, Ritter had the strength to bring herself back up despite the injury. Here, she showcases that she exhibits the spirit of Jessica both on camera and off.
Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones can currently be seen in Marvel’s The Defenders alongside Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn Jones’s Danny Rand/Iron Fist. The series also stars Deborah Ann Woll, Simone Missick, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Rachel Taylor, Rosario Dawson, Scott Glenn, Jessica Henwick, Elodie Yung and Sigourney Weaver.
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Marvel’s The Defenders is currently streaming on Netflix. No release date has been set for Jessica Jones Season 2, but it is expected to debut sometime in 2018.

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See
After three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.
Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.
Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.
Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.
So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!
