There are too many series planned in the future of the Marvel Universe. Or at least, too many to continue subscribing to the classic superhero model, without proposing drastic variations in the formula. Luckily, Kevin Feige’s machine has already toyed with the mix of genres in the past (the Captain America movies being linked to the spy thriller or the Ant-Man ones to the heist movies), and the former series destined for Disney + is Scarlet Witch and Vision. Which would be released on January 15 and, although we clearly know what it consists of, it seems clear that it will not be superhero fiction to use.
Marvel’s Phase 4 is decisive for how it has to stand up to the phenomenon of Avengers: Endgame and show that there is still a lot of future left for the brand, either through crazy crossovers (the one that awaits us with Spider-Man 3) or for the aforementioned mixes of genres. In the latter case, it seems that the ambitions of She-Hulk will have to be taken into account, a series centered on Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters, and in her justice activities once she receives an urgent blood transfusion from her relative and she transforms herself into a green giant. Of course, unlike the Hulk, preserving her intellect.
The series stars Tatiana Maslany (Oprhan Black), and Feige himself has already given very juicy clues about her plot via Emmy Magazine. According to the creative director of Marvel Studios, the series focused on the character that in Spain we have always known as Hulka will be “a half-hour trial comedy.” Something “that Marvel has never done before”, and will focus on Walter’s work as a lawyer, as well as the way his transformation into She-Hulk affects his profession. The fiction, still without a release date, will also have Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner and Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky (aka Abomination), who we last saw in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.
She-Hulk is written by Jessica Gao and directed by Anu Valia and Kat Coiro (the latter coming from Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Feige has also revealed that the main inspiration for the series is to be found in the Hulka arc developed by John Byrne in the 80s, when the character was coded in a more clearly humorous way and, in the style of Deadpool, broke from time to time. fourth wall. The treatments of Dan Slott and Charles Soul, likewise, will also be vital in the development of the series, referring us to the case of Slott to self-closing episodes where Walters has to win a case.
In the cartoons, these trials had as protagonists Doctor Strange or Spider-Man wanting to sue J. Jonah Jameson for libel, so it would be a very juicy approach to root She-Hulk in the MCU, joining her with other characters in the universe.
