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.
She-Hulk is said to begin a 6-month shoot in February 2021.
Disney+ has several other confirmed Marvel projects in active development including The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and the rumored Ironheart and a Spider-Man 2099 series.
