While we know She-Hulk is meant to hit Disney Plus some time in 2022, we have not been given a specific date yet. Previous rumors put it in August, but a new leak from the official Disney Plus UK site has given us an exact date: August 17, 2022.
For whatever reason, the date, which has not been announced yet, is just listed alongside other past, present and future Marvel series on this blog post here (at least at the time of this writing). One weird thing is that Moon Knight is missing completely from the page, but yes, this is an official website, so that August date should have some weight, barring any changes. It also only lists Secret Invasion and Ironheart as future series, when we know others are coming too like the Echo standalone series and a Wakanda-based show.
As for She-Hulk itself, we also get this official description of the series, which more or less matches the comics:
“This new comedy series sees Bruce Banner help his cousin, Jennifer Walters, when she needs an emergency blood transfusion and guess what? She receives his powers too. Tatiana Maslany will play Jennifer, who is a lawyer specialising in superhuman-oriented legal cases. Mark Ruffalo is back as the Hulk alongside Tim Roth, who plays the Abomination.”
I guess this already got announced months ago but I hadn’t realized that Tim Roth was returning as Abomination, reprising his role from Ed Norton’s Hulk movie that is technically, part of the MCU, even though Bruce Banner was recast with Mark Ruffalo. Also in the series is The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil, who I believe plays some sort of villain.
MORE FOR YOU
We have yet to see more than tiny clips from She-Hulk in Disney Plus preview materials. Right now, they are focused on Ms. Marvel, which has plenty of trailers and debuts June 8. It will actually be overlapping with Obi-Wan, so Disney Plus will have a high profile Marvel and Star Wars series airing at the same time. Expect more of this in the future as Disney Plus ramps up its content production. We are a long way from the year where only The Mandalorian came out.
I am extremely curious to see what Tatiana Maslany looks like in green form. I presume that like Ruffalo’s Hulk, there will be some amount of CG and motion capture involved, as Maslany is not exactly massively tall, jacked actress, even if She-Hulk is not generally quite as inhumanly huge as Bruce’s Hulk in most instances.
With this date just three months away, hopefully we’ll see more soon.
