On the film front, Marvel has a pretty predictable pattern. In a standard phase, we get standalone films, along with the occasional team-up, and at a certain point, we get a massive event film in the form of something like Avengers: Infinity War. That’s basically the way things have operated from the beginning, and audiences have gotten used to the idea of these team-ups having follow-up stories.
With last years bringing together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in The Defenders, it seemed simple enough to assume that we can expect the same thing in the future on that front. Why not have these guys come together in a second season, right? There is one talent who thinks it’s unlikely.
Speaking with Vulture, Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter stated that she doesn’t think it’s bound to happen again.
“Well, I think Jessica was pretty well received. People were excited to see her again, so that made us happy because Jessica is the next up […] “Y’know, I had a great time doing The Defenders and honestly, it was such a good experience that I would even do it again. I don’t think we are doing it again. It was never intentioned to do it again, but, you know, if I was given another opportunity, I would.”
Very interesting, albeit a bit confusing. So long as the series performed well enough, I’d expect them to continue with another series going forward. That being said, the universe is ever-evolving, so maybe instead of doing another Defenders, they’ll do something else like Heroes for Hire. You never know what they’re willing to do with these characters.
