Erin Moriarty has etched her name into the world of comic-book adaptations with great work for her roles in both ‘The Boys’ and Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’. Though her journey with the character Hope Shlottman in ‘Jessica Jones’ came as a heartbreak for many, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) always carries a chance for her potential returns, given the history of Marvel character resurrections.
Besides, the MCU’s exploration of multiverses and alternate timelines intensifies those chances further. Moriarty has played a character with a dark past in ‘Jessica Jones’, which gives the story writers a chance to reintroduce her character in a movie as there’s heavy scope for the story getting branched.
