Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed the tone for the She-Hulk series heading to Disney Plus which stars Tatiana Maslany.
Although there was initially some confusion over whether Tatiana Maslany would actually appear in She-Hulk as Jennifer Walters after the star denied the casting in an interview, it was confirmed during the Disney Investor presentation that the Orphan Black star will lead the series. And now Kevin Feige has revealed what fans can expect from She-Hulk when it debuts on Disney Plus during 2022.
When speaking to Emmy Magazine about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney Plus, Kevin Feige revealed that the She-Hulk series will be a “half-hour legal comedy” because it’s something the studio has “never done before.” He also teased that John Byrne’s 1980s She-Hulk run will be the inspiration behind the Disney Plus series, which will be interesting to see since both Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth are set to reprise their respective roles as Hulk and Abomination in the show.

In the comics, She-Hulk is the alter-ego of Jennifer Walters, a private attorney and the cousin of Bruce Banner. After being shot, Jennifer Walters receives a blood transfusion from Bruce who was the only viable donor. The transfusion had the unintended side effect of transforming her into the gamma-powered She-Hulk. However, unlike most incarnations of Bruce Banner’s Hulk, Jennifer Walters retains her sharp wit and emotional control in her She-Hulk form, which later becomes permanent.
Marvel Studios’ upcoming slate of films includes Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder. In addition to the aforementioned feature films, Marvel Studios is developing several shows for Disney Plus, including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk.
She-Hulk is currently slated for a 2022 release on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Tatiana Maslany, Kevin Feige and She-Hulk and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content!
