With no official release date, so little is known about the new Disney+ series She-Hulk. Fans got a super short sneak peek at what they could expect from the show in a Disney+ Day teaser that showcased all the upcoming Marvel Studios projects they had in store for 2022.
In an interview with The Wrap, Kat Coiro, who directed several episodes of the series, was asked if there were any plans for season 2 of She-Hulk. “I will let Kevin Feige answer that question,” Coiro said. “For now, we have done a season and it’s coming out sometime this year. And we’ll go from there.” Seeing as Coiro didn’t completely deny the possibility, it’s clear that there’s a good chance we could be getting a season 2 for the upcoming streaming series.
This show is going to bring something different to the MCU—breaking the fourth wall. While breaking the fourth wall isn’t the newest concept in Marvel as a whole (Deadpool fans know that better than anyone), She-Hulk did beat Deadpool to the punch in the comics. Her character is known to break the fourth wall frequently, and there’s no doubt that we are going to be getting that in the new series.
She-Hulk will star Emmy Award winner, Tatiana Maslany, as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, with the series including Mark Ruffalo, as he reprises his role as Bruce Banner/Hulk. The series will also star Ginger Gonzaga, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Jameela Jamil as She-Hulk’s nemesis, Titania. Finally, Tim Roth returns to play Emil Blonsky/Abomination, who’s surprise cameo in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings immediately led Marvel fans to the conclusion that he would be brought back into the fold.
When speaking about her approach to characters and genre, Coiro says:
“I never choose a project based on genre. And I actually don’t think very much about genre, I think about character. And I think about the emotional lives of the characters and, you know, can I bring something? Can I bring a mix of humor and heart to this? Because that is what I love to watch. And it’s what I love to work with. And so when I stepped into, you know, the Marvel playground — the cool thing about Marvel is that it is an ever-evolving universe and you have straight dramas, and you have very comedic films, and we are in that world where we’re definitely playing with a more comedic world, but it also is still part of Marvel land.”
Compared to some of the more serious Marvel Studios series on Disney+, She-Hulk is going to be something a little lighter. Marvel Studios is no stranger to adding comedy and quirks to their projects so potentially seeing a Marvel series that leans more into fourth wall breaking, in addition to comedy, could give us a much needed break after a tear-jerker like WandaVision and the dark brooding Moon Knight.
There is no official release date for She-Hulk but it is projected to release sometime in 2022.
