Another interesting Marvel tidbit announced from the Disney Investor Day events last week is that the She-Hulk series has officially added director Anu Valia. Some of Anu’s credits include Love Life, A.P. Bio, Mixed-ish, and Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens. She also recently worked on the series Love, Victor.
Kat Corio had been previously named as one of the directors as well and was announced by Marvel.
She-Hulk, a new comedy series coming to Disney+, stars Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters, a lawyer who specializes in superhuman-oriented legal cases. She-Hulk will welcome a host of Marvel characters to the series.
Kevin Feige confirmed during the Marvel presentation that the cast will include Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, and the return of Tim Roth‘s Emil Blonsky aka The Abomination. Roth previously playing the villain in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk and there had been previous rumors that Blonsky could be part of a Thunderbolts project.
Did he also tease that characters like lawyer Matt Murdock aka Daredevil or potential client Peter Parker aka Spider-Man might be showing up in the series? Check out the brief hint Kevin made below.
FEIGE: “And since Jennifer Walters is a lawyer that specializes specifically in superhero oriented legal cases you never know what Marvel characters might pop-up from episode to episode.”
I guess we’ll have to wait and see what characters he is actually teasing here.
However, it is worth mentioning that Spider-Man 3 director Jon Watts is working on a Fantastic Four film and She-Hulk at one time was a member on that roster, making her a strong contender to play a role in the MCU reboot alongside Spider-Man. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker originally made his comic book debut in the pages of Fantastic Four. However, if Holland’s finally MCU film is the Doctor Strange sequel it might be unlikely we’ll see him show up.
Filming on She-Hulk was reported to begin this March in Atlanta, Georgia which would suggest the series is heading towards a release in 2022 on Disney+.
