She-Hulk Director Says Disney+ Series Set in a ‘More Comedic World’


 

Jennifer Walters is a tough cookie. The young attorney is determined to move forward – because who isn’t after law school, but one can image this feeling is a million times worse for a Hulk – and take on superhuman legal problems at a New York City law company, fueled by her silent wrath and desire for justice. However, the series also includes a half-hour legal comedy created in the style of a Law & Order procedural, which is a welcome change from the often more serious Hulk stuff. In a recent interview with The Wrap, series director and executive producer Kat Coiro stated that the new She-Hulk series on Disney+ will have a comedic bent.

 

“I never choose a project based on genre,” Coiro said to The Wrap. “And I actually don’t’ think very much about genre, I think about character. I think about the emotional lives of the characters and, you know, can I bring something? Can I bring a mix of humor and heart to this? Because that is what I love to watch.”

 

 

Coiro went on to say that she followed the same technique for She-Hulk as she does for all of her projects: she “really focused on the characters and performance and finding the humor, while also grounding it in reality.” Coiro compared the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a playground, explaining that the MCU is like a playground, saying “the cool thing about Marvel is just that it is an ever-evolving universe, and you have straight drams, and you have very comedic films.”

 

Coiro confirmed that She-Hulk will definitely be “playing with a more comedic world, but it also is still part of Marvel land.” Cody Ziglar, one of the writers, has worked on shows like Rick & Morty and Craig of the Creek, so this comedic approach should be expected.

 

 

The Disney+ series is also expected to be a very meta, much like Deadpool, regularly breaking the fourth wall, as the character did during John Byrne’s seminal run on the green superhero. She-Hulk will arrive for streaming on Disney+ later in 2022.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
