As fans eagerly await what lies in store in Disney+’s She-Hulk series, the show has now added a new name to its production.
Via Deadline, Kat Coiri is to direct the She-Hulk pilot episode and act as an executive producer on the series. The Brooklyn 99, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Modern Family director will also direct several episodes of She-Hulk, too.
For those not familiar with the She-Hulk character, Jennifer Walters is the lawyer cousin of Bruce Banner. After Jennifer is in need of a blood transfusion to save her life, the only option turns out to be Bruce – and thus, Walters has Banner’s gamma-infused blood put into her system in a move that results in her becoming She-Hulk.
Rick and Morty’s Jessica Goa is the showrunner for She-Hulk, with rumblings and rumours suggesting GLOW’s Alison Brie as the perfect choice to play Jennifer Walters. At present, the plan is for She-Hulk to premiere on Disney+ in 2022.
