While everyone is focusing on the supernatural aspects of WandaVision, Marvel Studios will introduce a different perspective of Phase 4 in less than a month with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Just like how Wanda’s story is setting up, what I like to call, the Multiverse Arc of the MCU, I suspect that the next Disney+ show will possibly set up not just one but multiple arcs. For example, I imagine it will be a key piece in setting up the superpowered team known as The Thunderbolts. This set-up may not be the only thing that the upcoming series might tackle. I suspect that the Sokovia Accords might play an essential role in the story, which will start to unravel once She-Hulk releases.
If we look back at the series description, it highlights that the series will focus on superhuman legal cases. Now, if you consider everything that is happening in the MCU, by the time She-Hulk arrives on our television, which will presumably be in 2022. The superpowered community may lose face in the public eye as future events unfold. The Sokovia Accords are still in effect, as confirmed by Agent Jimmy Woo during an episode of WandaVision. So what does this all entail?
According to my current theory, She-Hulk may be based around Jennifer Walters presenting a case that the Sokovia Accords are unconstitutional. It might build-up to her asking the United Nations to revoke them. Introducing Jennifer Walters into the MCU at this moment is by no means an accident, and this show has the potential to showcase Walters’ abilities both in the courtroom and in battle. This story also sets up what was teased in the rest of the show’s description.
She-Hulk will welcome a host of Marvel characters to the series, including the Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo, and the Abomination, played by Tim Roth.
Notice the keywords in that description hinting at a host of Marvel characters? It confirms that Banner and Blonsky will not be the only MCU characters in the show. I suspect that given the legal aspect of this show, we might see several MCU characters pop in as potential witnesses that can either make or break Walters’ case. Sam Wilson, Wanda Maximoff, Vision, Kamala Khan, James Rhodes, and any other Marvel Cinematic Universe hero could be called into the stand.
It could also be a creative way to introduce Krysten Ritter‘s Jessica Jones into the MCU, who was rumored to appear a while back. We could also see Walters seek legal advice from other colleagues, such as Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock. If this theory pans out and given how Marvel is now pushing its projects to include characters from the entire universe, She-Hulk will certailny be a show to keep an eye on. The defense rests its case, your honor.
