Kat Coiro in talks to helm & executive produce Disney+’s She-Hulk
Though still without a star for its titular hero for the time being, Disney+’s She-Hulk series has made another big step forward as Kat Coiro (Marry Me) has entered talks to direct and executive produce the pilot and a handful of episodes, according to Deadline.
The She-Hulk series was officially announced by Marvel’s chief creative officer Kevin Feige last year along with two other MCU shows Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight. This marks the iconic superheroes’ live-action debut who are also expected to be featured in future MCU films.
The series will be developed and written by Jessica Gao, who is the Emmy-winning scribe behind Rick and Morty‘s acclaimed Season 3 episode “Pickle Rick.”
She-Hulk debuted in Marvel Comics’ “Savage She-Hulk” #1 in 1980, created by writer Stan Lee and artist John Buscema. Her alter ego is Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner/Hulk, who after being shot is provided a blood transfusion from Bruce that turns her into a similar green monster. She later became a member of the Avengers and briefly replaced Ben Grimm in The Fantastic Four.
She-Hulk is one of a slew of properties Marvel Studios is currently developing for the forthcoming streaming service Disney+, including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, WandaVision, Hawkeye, Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel. The Winter Soldier series is set to be the first to premiere amongst the group, with the six-episode first season slated for an August 2020 debut.
