She-Hulk is an upcoming American television series created by Jessica Gao for the streaming service Disney+, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is intended to be part of the television series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) produced by Marvel Studios, sharing continuity with the films of the franchise. Gao serves as head writer with Kat Coiro leading the directing team.

Tatiana Maslany stars as Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk. Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Ginger Gonzaga, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Jameela Jamil also star. The series was announced in August 2019, with Gao hired in November. Coiro joined to direct multiple episodes in September 2020, and Maslany was cast. By December, Roth and Ruffalo had joined the cast and Anu Valia was also set to direct. Filming began in mid-April 2021 in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Georgia, and was expected to last until that August.

She-Hulk is scheduled to be released in 2022, and will consist of ten episodes. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.

Cast and characters

Additionally, Anais Almonte and Josh Segarra have been cast in undisclosed roles.[6][7]

Episodes

Beyond the first episode, Kat Coiro is also directing the final episode and four others, with Anu Valia also directing episodes of the series.[8] The series will consist of ten 30-minute episodes.[9]

Production

Development

By July 1989, the character Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk was expected to appear in the television film The Death of the Incredible Hulk (1990).[10] The character ultimately did not appear, and a proposed television series featuring She-Hulk at ABC was canceled a year later.[11] In 1991, a film based on the character entered development at New World Pictures with Larry Cohen serving as director,[11] and Brigitte Nielsen set to play She-Hulk.[12] Nielsen participated in a promotional photoshoot, but the film ultimately did not materialize.[13]

In August 2019, Marvel Studios announced at the D23 conference that a series based on She-Hulk was being developed for the streaming service Disney+, to be set in their shared universe the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).[14] That November, Jessica Gao was hired to serve as the head writer.[15] In September 2020, Kat Coiro was hired to direct the first and final episodes plus four others, and to executive produce the series,[16][8] while Anu Valia had also joined as a director by December 2020.[2] Valia said she was directing a few episodes of the series and described Coiro as the series' "visionary leader".[8] The series will consist of ten 30-minute episodes, equaling approximately six hours of content.[9][17] In February 2021, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige stated that some of their series, including She-Hulk and Moon Knight, were being developed with the potential to have future seasons made, in contrast to series like WandaVision (2021) which were developed as limited events that lead into feature films instead.[18] Brad Winderbaum also serves as an executive producer.[19][needs update]

Writing

Feige has described the series as a "half-hour legal comedy" that would be faithful to John Byrne's take on She-Hulk in Marvel Comics.[20][21] Dana Schwartz,[22] Melissa Hunter,[23] Cody Ziglar,[24] Kara Brown,[25] and Zeb Wells serve as writers on the series.[26] By early May 2020, work on the series' scripts had ended.[27]

Casting

Mark Ruffalo, who portrayed Bruce Banner / Hulk in the MCU films, said in November 2019 that he planned to meet with Feige about making an appearance in the series.[28] In March 2020, Ruffalo confirmed that he was in talks to reprise his role in the series.[29] That September, Deadline Hollywood reported that Tatiana Maslany was cast in the lead role of Walters,[1] but Maslany denied being cast and said the report was "a press release that's gotten out of hand" and "not actually a thing".[30] The Hollywood Reporter reaffirmed Maslany's casting in November 2020,[31] and Feige officially confirmed it the next month, along with Ruffalo's involvement and the casting of Tim Roth in the series. Roth reprises his role as Emil Blonsky / Abomination from The Incredible Hulk (2008). Feige also teased appearances from other MCU characters given Walters' work as a lawyer for superheroes.[2] In January 2021, Ginger Gonzaga was cast as Walters' best friend,[3] and Renée Elise Goldsberry was cast as Amelia that April.[4] Anais Almonte joined the cast by June 2021,[6] as did Jameela Jamil as Titania,[5] with Josh Segarra joining the following month.[7]

Filming

Filming began on April 10, 2021 in Los Angeles,[32] and began on April 12 at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia,[33] with Coiro and Valia directing episodes of the series,[2] and Florian Ballhaus serving as cinematographer.[34] The series is filmed under the working titles Libra and Clover.[35][36] Roth initially found it difficult to return to the character but was able to approach the role with more humor after watching and beginning to work alongside Ruffalo.[37] Jamil completed filming her scenes by the week of August 15.[38] Filming was expected to last until August 30, 2021.[36] The series was previously expected to begin filming on July 6, 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic,[39][40][36] and then in March 2021.[31][40]

Release

She-Hulk is scheduled to debut on Disney+ in 2022,[41] and will consist of ten episodes.[9] It is part of Phase Four of the MCU.[42]

Future

In November 2019, Feige stated that after introducing She-Hulk in the series, the character will cross over to the MCU films.[43]
