The series will focus on Jennifer Walters – a cousin of Bruce Banner’s who receives Banner’s Hulk powers during a blood transfusion after a fatal accident.
As one of Marvel’s strongest and leading female superheroes, it is a relief to know that the show will be backed by a female team.
Corio, who’s previous works include Brooklyn Nine-Nine, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Modern Family, will be joined by Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao.
The combination of the duo indicates the She-Hulk may take on a rather comedic and light-hearted tone. This could be a good thing given the success of past MCU projects like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy that leaned towards comedy.
Whilst the cast for She-Hulk has yet to be determined, actor Mark Ruffalo who plays the original Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe teased a possible cameo.
She-Hulk‘s production has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and will most likely see a 2022 release instead.
