Marvel’s Disney+ ‘She-Hulk’ Series Reportedly Eyeing 2021 Production Start

272

Marvel’s upcoming She-Hulk series for Disney+ is reportedly eyeing an early 2021 production start.  The series was originally supposed to start production in July, however due to filming shutdowns and the current health crisis filming was delayed.  The Direct is now reporting She-Hulk is set to begin a 6-month shoot in February 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia. Currently, that is where most Marvel series and movies film including, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, and Hawkeye.

Earlier today, it was also announced that Kat Coiro has been tapped to direct the She-Hulk series for the streaming service.  She is in negotiations to direct the pilot and several other episodes of the series and will also serve as an executive producer.

Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty) has been tapped to lead the writers room.

Little is known about the She-Hulk series so far, but here’s the synopsis as listed on the Film & Television Industry Alliance:

Following an injury, Jennifer Walters receives an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, and acquires a milder version of his Hulk condition. As such, Walters becomes a large powerful green-hued version of herself while still largely retaining her personality. In particular, she retains her intelligence and emotional control, although, like Hulk, she still becomes stronger if enraged.

Disney has yet to announce who will play Jennifer Walters, a.k.a She-Hulk and despite early reports that Mark Ruffalo was indeed on board to reprise his role as Bruce Banner in the series, the actor says that talks are still ongoing.

Disney+ has several other confirmed Marvel projects in active development including The Falcon and The Winter SoldierWandaVision, LokiWhat If…?HawkeyeMs. MarvelMoon Knight, and the rumored Ironheart and a Spider-Man 2099 series.
