Disney Plus will introduce a whole host of new TV shows to the MCU – one of which is She-Hulk. This new series will make up a crucial part of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
We’ve rounded up everything we know about She-Hulk, including the casting, release date and plot details. Keep on reading for more information – and check out the best TV shows on Disney+ right now.
When does She-Hulk start?
Disney hasn’t yet revealed a release date for She-Hulk. However, at the D23 Expo the show was announced to release around the same time as Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight, which puts it in the timeline as sometime in 2022.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming for the show will commence in March 2021, which also feeds into a 2022 release date. Next year will play host to some of the delayed MCU shows such as WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
She-Hulk cast and crew
It has been revealed that Tatiana Maslany will star in the main role of She-Hulk, also known as Jennifer Walters (via Deadline). Maslany is best known for starring in Orphan Black, Perry Mason and the film Stronger and Destroyer.
The casting was confirmed by Bruce Banner himself, Mark Ruffalo, on Twitter:

No other casting news has yet been revealed, though there is news about talent behind the camera. Jessica Gao will serve as the lead writer of the series, best known for being the mind behind the Rick and Morty Pickle Rick episode.
In addition, Kat Coiro has been tapped to direct numerous episodes of the show, including the pilot. Coiro is best known for her work on the sitcoms It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Shameless and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Like many other MCU Disney+ shows, She-Hulk is likely to be an origin superhero story. If you’re not yet familiar, Jennifer Walters is a lawyer and the cousin of Bruce Banner – better known as Hulk.
In the comics, Walters is gunned down by a criminal who is seeking revenge. To save her life, Banner performs an emergency blood transfusion. In doing so, he passes on a portion of his gamma radiation onto her – solidifying her transformation into She-Hulk.
Fortunately, Walter’s doesn’t share her cousin’s uncontrollable rage issues, so she can continue to work as a lawyer even when in Hulk mode. Like Netflix’s Daredevil, we imagine this show will combine law drama and superheroes in a rather unique way.
