‘She-Hulk’: ‘Dead To Me’ Director Kat Coiro To Helm & Executive Produce Disney+ Series
One of the most anticipated projects in the works at Marvel Studios is the Disney+ series She-Hulk. Outside of reports and rumors of characters like Red Hulk and Betty Ross appearing, the show largely remains a mystery. However, as first reported by Deadline, director and screenwriter Kat Coiro will serve as executive producer and director for the upcoming series.
The news comes out just months away from Coiro’s latest release Marry Me, starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson. Moreover, the filmmaker’s filmography points to the experience necessary to tackle a big Marvel property. Over the last few years, Coiro inhabited the director’s chair for shows like Dead To Me, Shameless, Modern Family, and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Per the initial report, Coiro will helm the show’s pilot as well as other episodes throughout its first season. As previously reported, Rick and Morty scribe Jessica Gao will be leading the writing team for She-Hulk.
Debuting in the pages of Marvel Comics in Savage She-Hulk #1 in February 1980, She-Hulk AKA Jennifer Walters is Bruce Banner’s cousin and high-ranking member of The Avengers. After an injury, she receives an emergency blood transfusion from Banner and acquired a milder version of his Hulk condition. However, Walters is also an accomplished lawyer and will reportedly handle superheroic law in the upcoming series. Additionally, Mark Ruffalo is in negotiations to reprise his MCU role in the series with Marvel looking to begin production in February 2021.
At the time of this writing, no casting information is available. However, GLOW star Alison Brie has expressed interest in the role in the past.
