Marvel’s Jessica Jones seems like a shoe-in for a Daredevil crossover, both taking place in Hell’s Kitchen, with the former’s prequel comic already teasing a potential introduction, but we might have confirmation of Matt Murdock popping up in Jessica’s orbit. The questions is --- under what circumstances, and which guise?

Jon Schnepp at Collider offered at least some loose confirmation that Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock would make an appearance over the course of Jessica Jones’ initial season, albeit without any details:


You’re definitely going to see Matt Murdock in Jessica Jones. That’s a fact. He’s in it. I don’t know how they interact, but he’s in the series.


Specifying Matt Murdock over his horned alter-ego might allude to a particular point from the comics, as the series’ trailer showed specific influence from Brian Michael Bendis’ and Michael Gaydos’ Alias comics, the first significant Jessica Jones stories. There, Matt Murdock arrived at a police station as Jessica’s lawyer, similar to the surprise we saw Matt and Foggy lay on Karen in Daredevil Season 1.

Granted, what we’ve seen of Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones doesn’t seem as if she’d be too eager to accept anyone’s help, and there’s no guarantee Marvel or Netflix would utilize the same approach to introducing the pair. At the very least, we already know Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple will put in an appearance, same with the Luke Cage series to follow.

We’ll know more in the coming weeks, but how long could it be before Daredevil suits up beside Jessica Jones? Will more Defenders cross over before we reach the team-up miniseries? Check out the latest trailers again below.
