Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters will make her MCU debut as She-Hulk in She-Hulk. It’s part of the small-screen lineup on Disney+, which follows Walters’s journey from being a superhero to becoming one. Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner, and Tim Roth, who plays Emil Blonsky, a.k.a. Abomination, will join Maslany in the MCU.
Fans want to know if She-Hulk will return for season 2. However, the Marvel show has yet to announce a premiere date. Actor Oscar Isaac clarified that his Marvel show Moon Knight is a “limited series”. This means that it will only be available on Disney+ for one season.
Only two MCU series, Loki and What If…?, have been renewed for Season 2 thus far. As Marvel’s video content branch continues on Disney+ in 2022, the debate over whether shows like Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk will receive the same treatment has intensified. In a new interview, director She-Hulk has addressed the issue.
The Wrap spoke with She-Hulk director Kat Coiro about Tatiana Maslany and Mark Ruffalo’s upcoming MCU series.
She-Hulk, like Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, may get a second season, which is something that the Marvel director addressed right away. Kevin Feige is the only person who can answer this question, according to Coiro, who remained tight-lipped on the matter:
“I will let Kevin Feige answer that question. For now, we have done a season and it’s coming out sometime this year. And we’ll go from there.”
She-Hulk’s involvement with Coiro was then discussed:
“I never choose a project based on genre. And I actually don’t think very much about [the] 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.”
While reassuring fans that Disney+ She-Hulk will still bear the Marvel imprint, Coiro said that the comic will lean toward the “more comedic world”:
“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.”
With regard to her work on She-Hulk, Coiro explained her decision to focus on character development and performance while maintaining a sense of reality:
“I would say that I do what I always do, which is really focused on the characters and performance and finding the humor but also grounding it in reality.”
If Kat Coiro reveals whether or not She-Hulk will be renewed for a second season, it could be a spoiler.
To allow for a second season of Disney+, Marvel’s series may end with an open ending, so the show can continue its storyline. Alternatively, She-Hulk could merely serve as the character’s introduction to the big screen, paving the way for a possible collaboration with other Marvel heroes.
Even so, there was some indication that She-Hulk would be renewed for a second season in the past. The fact that ‘season one’ was mentioned on official crew merch from the series suggests that a sequel is on the way.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige’s explanation of the story arc and rumors surrounding it are consistent with Coiro’s claims that She-Hulk leans toward the “more comedic world.” Previously, Feige had described She-Hulk as a “half-hour legal comedy,” pointing out that the studio had never attempted a film in this genre before. Jennifer Walters, as depicted in the comics, is expected to frequently defy the fourth wall.
Because of this, She-Hulk’s talented cast will have more opportunities to shine in this film. This is all thanks to the director’s commitment to focusing on the characters more. She-Hulk appears to be a promising new addition to the MCU.
