Marvel: Here Comes She-Hulk! In WandaVision?!
Reports say that Hulk’s cousin will soon join the MCU.
So here’s the rumpus.
She-Hulk might join us sooner than later. At least that’s what recent rumors related to fans this week.
It’s claimed that the MCU debut of She-Hulk will appear in the upcoming Disney Plus WandaVision series.
The rumor offers that more than likely She-Hulk, aka Jennifer Walters the cousin of Bruce Banner, will have a small role in WandaVision, and similar to her comic book counterpart, will break the fourth wall.
She-Hulk actually broke the fourth wall (talking directly to the reader/audience) prior to Deadpool, so with WandaVision looking like it will be something of a hoot, She-Hulk breaking the fourth wall in the series should fit in rather nicely.

Previous Marvel TV shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Netflix’s Defenders-related output have been known to make fleeting references to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe, but aren’t strictly considered canon. However, the advent of Disney Plus is about to change all of that, with the cross-pollination between the big and small screen MCU set to tie closer together than ever before, with Kevin Feige admitting that fans will need to shell out for a subscription to the Mouse House’s streaming service in order to remain up to date with the latest happenings in the franchise.
Not only will the wide and expensive array of MCU TV shows bring more money into the Disney coffers in order to fund their inevitable quest for world domination, but it also gives Marvel Studios the opportunity to introduce some lower-tier characters into their established mythology without having to shell out hundreds of millions of dollars to debut them in a big-budget movie.
While Disney Plus will feature recurring faces in the likes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki and Hawkeye, there’s plenty of new blood set to be introduced as well with Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk all set to make their MCU debuts. Presumably, the goal is to mix the old with the new in order to give the fans the best of both worlds, and a new report indicates that WandaVision may be set to give a soft launch to one of the in-development fan favorites.
None of that bothers me. As long as everything is “canon” I’ll watch it. And here’s hoping Matt Murdock is joining Jennifer in the courtroom, soon.
