Captain Marvel Got A Funny Shout Out In Jessica Jones Season 3

Minor spoilers ahead for Jessica Jones Season 3

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is on a serious high, as Avengers: Endgame continues to clean up at the box office. But as the adventures on the big screen heat up and wrap up Phase Three, Marvel's TV projects are in a more precarious position. All of the Marvel Netflix shows have been cancelled, likely in order for Disney+ to be the home for official MCU content.

But despite the cancellations, Jessica Jones released its third and final season today on the streaming service. Krysten Ritter's signature alcoholic hero is back for another adventure, as is her best friend Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor). Trish was teased to have new powerful reflexes during Season 2's finale, and this season follows her attempting to become the superheroic Hellcat. And a scene from the second episode gave Captain Marvel a quick shout out.

When Trish goes to a costume shop in an attempt to find something to fight crime in, we're treated to a montage of potential suits-- including her iconic yellow one from the comics. During that sequence she puts on a Captain Marvel costume, striking a pose in the blue and red outfit. While not armored like the one Brie Larson rocked, the reference comes through clear as day.

It stands to reason that Jessica Jones would make a callback to Captain Marvel, considering both projects are set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the timeline of Endgame and Jessica's third season is murky, it's fun to see Carol Danvers finally referenced in other Marvel projects. She and Krysten Ritter's Defender both broke new ground as female superheroes, so its a fitting tribute.

It's also worth noting that Trish's costume doesn't actually bear all that close of a resemblance to the alien equipment worn by Brie Larson in Captain Marvel. It's a leather pant/jacket combination, rather than actual armor. What's more, she dons a Brunette wig during the easter egg, even though Carol Danvers is more of a blonde during her big screen appearances.

But considering when Jessica Jones filmed its third season in relation to the release of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, we can give this discrepancy a slide, and enjoy the shout out.

Jessica Jones Season 3 is streaming on Netflix, and Captain Marvel is in Avengers: Endgame, in theaters now. Be sure to check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
