With the debut of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest superhero has been introduced into the franchise. As the final Disney+ series of the MCU’s Phase 4, plenty of fans are curious where Jennifer Walters could be headed in Marvel Studios’ explosive Phases 5 and 6.
Recently, Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner aka the Hulk, stated that “there’s not going to be another Avengers without [She-Hulk],” suggesting that the new hero will be a consistent presence in future films like Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. Now, She-Hulk head writer Jessica Gao has further emphasized the likelihood of Jen appearing in those two Avengers films. When asked on Deadline’s Hero Nation Podcast if She-Hulk would appear in Kang Dynasty or Secret Wars, Gao said:
I would be shocked if they didn’t start putting her in the movies, especially the group team-up movies.Jessica Gao
Of course, even the series’ head writer’s comments are no guarantee of She-Hulk’s future in the MCU, as creators are notoriously kept in the dark about the future of their characters beyond the current project. Gao explained her approach to making one season of a show while knowing that the superhero may have a larger future down the road:
Coming from television, you can never guarantee that you’re going to get another season with a first season show. So it’s kind of been trained into my head that, on a first-season show, you really have to tell a complete story that you’d be satisfied with if this is only a one-and-done. Just because there’s never a guarantee, you just never know if you’re going to get another season, so you can’t really hold back and just leave things open-ended. You do have to tell some sort of satisfying arc in one season just in case, and then of course you leave the door open for possibilities for a second, third, and fourth season. So that was kind of my mental approach to it.Jessica Gao
The first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is now streaming on Disney+.
