While we know She-Hulk is meant to hit Disney Plus sometime in 2022, we haven’t been given a specific date. Rumors had previously mentioned it in August, but a new leak from the official Disney Plus UK website has given us an exact date: August 17, 2022.
For whatever reason, the date, which has yet to be announced, is only listed alongside other past, present, and future Marvel series in this blog post here (at least at the time of this writing). One odd thing is that Moon Knight is completely off the page, but yes, it’s an official site, so the August date should have weight, unless something changes. It also only lists Secret Invasion and Ironheart as future series, when we know others are also coming like the standalone series Echo and Wakanda-based shows.
As for She-Hulk himself, we also got an official description of the series, which more or less fits the comics:
“This new comedy series sees Bruce Banner helping his cousin, Jennifer Walters, when he needs an emergency blood transfusion and guess what? He received his power too. Tatiana Maslany will play Jennifer, a lawyer who specializes in superhuman-oriented legal cases. Mark Ruffalo returns as the Hulk alongside Tim Roth, who plays Abomination.”
I thought this was announced months ago, but I didn’t realize that Tim Roth would return as Abomination, reprising his role from the Hulk Ed Norton film that was technically part of the MCU, even though Bruce Banner was remade with Mark Ruffalo. Also in the series is Jameela Jamil from The Good Place, who I believe plays some sort of villain.
We haven’t seen more than a small clip of She-Hulk in the Disney Plus preview material. Currently, they are focusing on Ms. Marvel, which has plenty of trailers and debuts on June 8. It will actually overlap with Obi-Wan, so Disney Plus will have a high profile Marvel and The Star Wars series aired at the same time. Expect more of this in the future as Disney Plus ramps up its content production. We’re still a long way from the year only The Mandalorian came out.
I’m very curious to see what Tatiana Maslany looks like in green. I’m assuming that like Ruffalo’s Hulk, there will be some amount of CG and motion capture involved, as Maslany isn’t exactly a tall, jacked actress, even if She-Hulk isn’t generally as big as Bruce Hulk in most cases.
With this date only three months away, hopefully we’ll see each other again soon.
