MCU Head Writer Would Be ‘Shocked’ if She-Hulk Didn’t Join the Avengers in Secret Wars

The release of the first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney+ has attracted an overwhelmingly positive reception, with many praising the Tatiana Maslany-led endeavor. With the introduction of Jennifer Walters into the expansive world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe narrative, many are already wondering what the future holds for her character. It is obvious that Marvel Studios, with the addition of many new superheroes, have been setting up an overarching premise for the Phase 6 movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.

With that in mind, would it be far off reality to see the inclusion of She-Hulk in the Avengers alongside other mightiest MCU superheroes? Jessica Gao, the head-writer of the latest Disney+ series says otherwise.

The Plausibility Of Jennifer Walters In The Avengers

In a recent interview for Deadline’s Hero Nation podcast, Jessica Gao, the head writer of the Tatiana Maslany-led series opened up about the plausibility of seeing the lawyer-turned-superheroine in the future Phase 6 Avengers films, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. As it appears, the fans do have not much to worry about.

Following is what Gao had to say when asked about the heroine’s return in MCU’s Phase 6 films:

“I would be shocked if they didn’t start putting her in the movies, especially the group team-up movies.”

The writer’s statement makes profound sense. What is obvious from the Phase 4 initiatives taken by Marvel Studios is that a proper framework for the future is being laid down with the introduction of so many new characters. Not seeing She-Hulk on future premises of MCU would be a wasted opportunity.

When it comes to the involvement of the superheroine in the Avengers, in a recent interview with THR at the premiere of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Mark Ruffalo, who has played the central Hulk for years now, commented the following:

“No, she’s in now, there’s not going to be another Avengers without her [She-Hulk].”

To this statement, even Tatiana Maslany showed her astonishment. To emphasize the claim Ruffalo made, he further elaborated, “That’s what I’m hearing.” Therefore, as per confirmations by some of the central figures of the MCU production team, it’d be not a surprise to see Jennifer Walters in the Avengers, fighting the threats of the world alongside a team of credible superheroes.

When it comes to the question of when we’d get to see the gamma-infused lawyer make her next MCU appearance post Season 1, the possibility of a Season 2 is not confirmed as of yet. In fact, Jessica Gao herself emphasized how crucial it was to tell a “complete story”, just in case She-Hulk does not receive any future installments. According to her, there’s never a sure-shot guarantee to “get another season with a first season show.” She elaborated her stance and said:

“It’s kind of been trained into my head that, on a first-season show, you really have to tell a complete story that you’d be satisfied with if this is only a one-and-done. Just because there’s never a guarantee, you just never know if you’re going to get another season, so you can’t really hold back and just leave things open-ended.”

However, on a promising note, the writer emphasized that the door of opportunities for future seasons should be left open while simultaneously providing a satisfactory conclusion to the first one. Therefore, the likeliness of another season, while unconfirmed, is always a genuine possibility.

While fans are left to enjoy the other episodes of the Tatiana Maslany starrer in the future weeks, the matter of She-Hulk’s future appearances does strike curiosity in one’s mind. Who knows, perhaps we’ll get to see several cameos of the superheroine in other upcoming MCU projects. What is guaranteed though, however, is the involvement of She-Hulk in future Avengers films, irrespective of the scale of her role and what she brings to the table.

As for now, you can catch your newest favorite superheroine in the first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, streaming exclusively on Disney+.
