She-Hulk: Attorney at Law series centers on Jennifer Walters, a lawyer turned superhero, who is exploring and balancing the highs and lows of her lawyer and superhero life. The series is already gaining popularity and fans are expecting much from it considering how other MCU heroes and villains are confirmed to make an appearance in the series, so the excitement level is at its peak. But Spider-Man is said not to make an appearance as earlier expected and fans are assuming that what if he is busy with some other project with Marvel?
Appearances we will get to see on She-Hulk: Attorney at law
The series as said is going to venture deeper into the character of Jennifer Walters. It includes her origin story, complications of being Hulk, adjustment to her power, and balancing her hero and attorney life.
Seeing how she is going to deal with the superhuman legal world, she will surely encounter a wide range of heroes and villains. We will be able to see not just the current cast but some fresh faces too. Some include names like Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Benedict Wong, Abomination, Bruce Banner/Hulk, and many more.
Recently, Jessica Gao, the creator and head writer of the She-Hulk series talked about how she hoped to bring a lot of characters under the same roof. She said that they were many that they couldn’t bring who were from the comics and had rights issues while some requests were turned down by Marvel saying they had ‘other plans.’
“There were a lot of characters from the comics– we wanted a lot of the comics for characters for fun situations where we could bring in like a character and think of like funny reasons why they would be in legal trouble. But there were a lot of characters that were from the comics that we couldn’t use either because of a rights issue, or there were a few times where it was because Marvel… all they would say is that they had other plans. And that’s all they would tell us. And then, we tried very, very hard to poke, and prod, and get a little bit more information. Of course, they wouldn’t tell us.”
Will Spider-Man be returning to the MCU?
Jessica Gao expressed her desire how she wanted that one character to be definitely on the series but couldn’t due to Marvel having ‘other plans.’ Although Marvel didn’t specify anything that what plans they are having for what characters, still it rings a bell as to why She-Hulk was unable to cast Spider-Man, and Marvel saying ‘other plans’, (sounds suspicious).
“But I will say, the one MCU character that really bummed out a lot of the writers in our room that we couldn’t use was Spider-Man and anyone involved around– like in the Spider-Man universe. Because we had so many Spider-Man fans in the room.”

Not to mention how Spider-Man: No Way Home puts an abrupt end to the whole Spider-Man franchise. So it would have definitely complicated things if Peter Parker would have made an appearance. It’s safe to assume that Marvel might have some plans for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, to clear the whole No Way Home ordeal and present Peter Parker in a new light.
Marvel never likes to play half-heartedly and always has some or the other shock in store for its fans.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law comes out on 18 August 2022 on Disney+.
