MCU Conspiracy Theorists Ponder Why Disney Altered ‘Jessica Jones’

Looking at the evidence we’ve been given so far, it isn’t unreasonable to expect that Krysten Ritter will be making a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Jessica Jones sooner rather than later.

After all, her street-level Netflix compadres Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio have already made their way over to Kevin Feige’s sandbox via Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye respectively, while the pair are also widely expected to show up in Echo, and that’s without even mentioning the Daredevil continuation that’s in early development for Disney Plus.

Over on the Ritter side of the equation, the actress recently sent social media into a tizzy when she shared photos of herself looking distinctly Jessica-esque, and now the tinfoil hats have been thrown on once again after the Mouse House’s streaming service made a minor alteration to the title of her solo series.

Sure, changing it from Jessica Jones to A.K.A. Jessica Jones is a teeny tiny cosmetic change, but that hasn’t stopped the speculation from running rampant already.

One of the most popular recurring theories is also the most simple; perhaps Marvel are planning to relaunch Jessica Jones as simply Jessica Jones, with the “A.K.A” prefix being used to differentiate it from what came before. On the other hand, wouldn’t that mean Daredevil would have been labeled as something along the lines of Daredevil: Man Without Fear?

The short answer is that we’ve got no idea, but maybe we can get quietly excited nonetheless.
