A big star from the fan favourite Defenders shows that aired (and were cancelled) on Netflix has just posted an Insta photo that leads us to believe some characters may be coming back.

Mike Colter, who played Luke Cage in Luke Cage, The Defenders and Jessica Jones, has just posted a photo on his Instagram story that hints that himself and Krysten Ritter (who played Jessica Jones in the series as mentioned earlier) may be making a comeback.

The Marvel star posted a selfie taken by Ritter with himself behind her, and the caption read: “L.C. + J.J. + Big Tease”.

Rumours of the Defenders making their way back to the big or small screen have been flying around since Charlie Cox’s Matthew Murdock has a memorable scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin was revealed to be the main antagonist in Hawkeye.

Ritter has posted the same photo of the two stars on her Instagram story, which was later reposted on her Instagram feed, captioned with nothing but a heart and tagging Colter.

On March 1, an Instagram photo was posted by a hairstylist of Krysten Ritter in a very Jessica Jones-esque look, which further prompted fans to speculate whether Jessica Jones was going to be making an appearance on a future Marvel project.

With the new Disney+ series Echo set to be released soon and already has connections to Kingpin (as Echo was also in the Hawkeye series), is it possible that Ritter and Colter will be coming back to Marvel and reprising their fan favourite characters?

When asked if we would ever see a revival of shows like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Fiege said: “Well, certainly you’ve seen what we announced at Comic-Con [in 2019] and on Disney Investor Day … so that’s our focus. But I’ve been at Marvel long enough to never say never about anything.”

Would you be excited to see Jessica Jones and Luke Cage on the screen again?
