She-Hulk director Kat Coiro has opened up on how she got the job helming the Marvel Disney Plus series.
Back in the summer of 2019, Disney and Marvel revealed that a new She-Hulk series was in development at Disney Plus. As time went on, the cast and crew for the series gradually filled out, including Tatiana Maslany in the lead role as well as Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth returning as Bruce Banner and The Abomination. Now the series director Kat Cario has opened up about getting the job.
While speaking to Collider, Kat Coiro spoke about getting the director job for She-Hulk. Specifically, she revealed that she went all out on selling herself for the role and discussed how collaborative the producers were:
“I’m a huge fan of the MCU, and I was actually a giant fan of the She-Hulk comics, so when I heard they were making it, I went full court press and really sold myself as the person to bring this story to life. It was a huge and involved process. Marvel is one of the most collaborative environments in the world. Even though he’s producing so many things, Kevin [Feige], and Lou [D’Esposito] and Victoria [Alonso] and Brad [Winderbaum], have such a hand in everything. The process was really about getting on the same page and making sure that we were like-minded. It’s never about anybody’s ego. It’s about bringing these stories to life. It was a long process, but those processes to get a job become very easy when you’re really passionate about the material, which I was in the case of that one.”
Marvel Studios hasn’t shared too many She-Hulk details yet, but Kevin Feige described She-Hulk as a “half-hour legal comedy.” Kate Gao served as the head writer on the Disney Plus series, with Kat Cario and Anu Valia directing the ten-episode season.
She-Hulk stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Jameela Jamil as Titania, and Tim Roth as the Abomination.
She-Hulk will debut on Disney Plus in 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming Marvel Disney Plus series and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
