Kat Coiro directed a total of six episodes for the Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. Of all the experiences she had spending time on the set of that Phase Four creation, there is one small hitch, however. There was no Jennifer Lopez in sight. Although the director likened the endeavor of working in Marvel to a dream come true, she also wants the world-famous singer to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

During the movie’s release, the director heaped praises on Lopez via an Instagram post in which she said:

“So many people came together to make this movie but I must start with the queen, la reina herself, Jennifer Lopez. Yes, she is just as beautiful in real life. Yes, she has the energy and stamina of one hundred mere mortals. Yes, she is talented, driven, family-oriented, hard-working, thoughtful, prepared, intelligent, transcendent, sensational, just as awesome behind the scenes as she is on camera […]

@Jlo brings out the best in everyone around her. In me, executives, other actors, dancers, the crew- everyone wants to give 1000% when they’re in her presence because she always gives that much, if not more… Despite all this she is humble and deferential and collaborative. She is inspiring and awesome and I feel grateful to know her. Also, look at her championing female directors.”

Kat Coiro’s Experience Working For Marvel

One of the rare things that are heard today is “a true dream” and yet that is how Coiro described what she felt working with her team under Marvel Studios while directing the highly anticipated upcoming Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, she further added that “one of the brilliant things about working for Marvel is that you get any actor you want.”

And she truly utilized this factor to her favor when she led the star-studded cast of She-Hulk to the finish line. With the highly talented and gracefully gifted Tatiana Maslany, MCU veteran Mark RuffaloThe Incredible Hulk‘s Tim Roth, and Daredevil‘s Charlie Cox, this series is already packed to the brim, and yet, as the production reveals, the trailers barely scratch the surface of what’s to come. If Coiro is able to continue on her winning streak and get JLo to step into the MCU in the future, it would truly be a sight to witness who Marvel decides can be embodied by la reina herself.


She-Hulk: Attorney At Law will premiere on Disney+ on August 18, 2022, with a single episode coming out every consecutive Thursday.
