During its presentation at Disney’s D23 convention in Anaheim, California, Marvel revealed that it was expanding its catalog of live-action superhero shows, which will include a series based on She-Hulk.
News of Ms. Marvel broke earlier today, but the studio unveiled details for She-Hulk during tonight’s presentation. The series will join the studio’s upcoming Phase 4 slate of projects, which already includes several live-action shows: The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, and Hawkeye, which are slated to begin streaming in 2020 and 2021. The company didn’t reveal when She-Hulk will premiere on the service.
She-Hulk is a long-standing figure in the Marvel Universe. She first appeared in 1980, and is the alter ego of Jennifer Walters. After a receiving a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, she gained similar transformative powers.
The announcement of the series comes as Disney has begun to build out its selection of original shows for Disney+ as a way to attract subscribers away from competing streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Disney previously partnered with Netflix for a series of live-action superhero shows, bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher to life, all of which have since been canceled.
