No one asks for a punch from Captain America, but a lot of dudes are asking to get a right hook from Jessica Jones. In an interview to promote Season 2 of the Marvel-Netflix series Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter revealed the strange request only guys ask for at Comic-Con: a punch in the face.

On Wednesday, Ritter appeared on CBS This Morning to talk about this week’s premiere of her acclaimed Marvel drama. When host Gayle King asked if fans dare Ritter to hit them, she replied, “Only men! I’ve never had a woman, yet, ask me to punch them.”

Here’s the full exchange:

King: “You’re known for your super powers, so do people come up to you? I was reading that people actually come up to you and say, ‘Go ahead, hit me Krysten, hit me. Arm wrestle!’ Is that true?”

Ritter: “Yeah, it’s a thing. You know, it happens at…”

King: “Men and women?”

Ritter: “Men. I’ve never had a woman, yet, you know, come up to me and ask me to punch them, but a lot of times we go to conventions and Comic-Con and things like that to promote the show, and a lot of men ask me to either arm wrestle them or punch them.”

King: “What do you do?”

Ritter: “I just go for it. You gotta give the fans what they want. My fans keep me employed, so if they want me to punch them, fine.”

The note here is probably: Dudes of America, lighten up. Don’t ask to get punched so much by Krysten Ritter.

Though men ask to get punched, Ritter added that many women come to her about their own stories of trauma and abuse, which Ritter’s character endured in Season 1 from the villain Kilgrave, played by David Tennant.

“I think it’s one of the most moving experiences of the job,” Ritter told the CBS hosts. “I’ve had women come up to me and say they feel represented. It’s made them feel better about what they’ve been through in their own lives, and simply seeing a bad-ass female character like this has meant to a lot of women, and men,” she said. “So that’s something that’s been exciting for me and makes me want to work even harder and throw myself into the role.”

Picking up where Season 1 left off in 2015, Jessica Jones returns to investigate the strange truth behind the origins of her incredible superpowers.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 is just around the corner. It might feel like Season 5 just began, but as summer winds down you can expect to see some major changes in the popular game. So when exactly will these changes occur? And what will they be?

Here’s everything you need to know about the start of Fortnite Season 6, and our best theories for what to expect in the next couple of weeks.

By now, we all know Thor should’ve aimed for the head at the end of in Avengers: Infinity War, even though Star-Lord shoulders a lot of the blame for Thanos wiping out half the universe due to his meltdown on Titan. But if you believe Doctor Strange’s talk about one successful outcome and his alleged “endgame,” then maybe Star-Lord’s freakout was actually an essential part of the plan. At the very least, the alternative could’ve been so much worse.

With all of New York’s criminal underworld webbed up in Marvel’s Spider-Man, gamers may be curious when it’s time for another swing. DLC will be released for the game very soon, but some are already curious if a sequel is in the cards. Nothing is confirmed, but if it does happen, Insomniac teases even more of Spider-Man’s universe will be explored.

The Flash Season 5 is really going to be a family affair, mostly because that “big mistake” Nora West-Allen made totally messed up the timeline.

The CW released a new trailer for The Flash Season 5 on Wednesday subtitled “Shadows” and it focuses mostly on the fallout from Nora traveling in time, namely in how it helped empower the season’s new big bad.

Carol Danvers has officially landed in the Captain Marvel trailer by smashing right through a Blockbuster Video as the video opens, but rather than looking like a human returning home, she seems more like an alien looking at a strange land for the first time.

The first trailer for Captain Marvel debuted on Good Morning America on Thursday morning. Lead actress Brie Larson went on the morning talk show as a guest to help introduce the trailer.
