She-Hulk Season 2 Possibility & Story Details Teased By Director

In a recent interview, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law director, Pamela Gores, teased the possibilities for the show if it were to be renewed for season 2.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law director, Pamela Gores, recently teased what could happen if She-Hulk season 2 were to happen. Announced in 2019, the upcoming MCU television series is set to premiere on Disney+ next week and will be the final show in Marvel Studios’ Phase Four. The legal comedy will focus on Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, a lawyer who has been hired to defend beings with supernatural powers. Following a car accident caused by the appearance of a spaceship, Walters is accidentally infected with Bruce Banner’s blood, which leads to her transformation into the She-Hulk, a 6’7″ tall green version of herself that has inherited the Hulk’s powers of super-strength and rapid healing.


Although the show centers itself around a new character to the franchise, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has already established itself within the MCU with its use of various previously established Marvel characters that are set to appear in the series. Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role as original Avenger Bruce Banner/The Hulk alongside Tim Roth’s The Incredible Hulk villain Emil Blonsky, his first human-form appearance since the 2008 film. Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) has also been shown in promotional trailers as featuring in the series alongside a cameo from Doctor Strange‘s Sorcerer Supreme Wong (Benedict Wong). The conceit of the show lends itself to plenty of cameos from various characters in the MCU, however the series’ head writer, Jessica Gao, previously revealed that Marvel Studios shut down plenty of She-Hulk cameos including a potential one from Spider-Man.

In a recent interview with The Direct, Gores discussed what direction She-Hulk: Attorney at Law could take if the show was ever renewed for a season 2. The director explained that the very nature of the show opens the door to “infinite possibilities” that allow the series to continue with a continuous cast of unique characters. Read what Gores said below.

“I mean, what’s so exciting to me is you have this premise of superhuman law firm that kind of lends itself to infinite possibilities. You could literally have any character who has ever existed in the MCU or who will ever exist pass through these doors, and it wouldn’t feel like a gratuitous cameo. It would feel completely organic. So I think the sky’s the limit in terms of what they can do with this moving forward.”

If She-Hulk season 2 were to happen, there are a number of approaches the creative team could take with regards to the show’s legal premise. Perhaps Jen could defend a different superhero each season, with a case slowly playing out over the course of several episodes. Another possibility is committing to a case-of-the-week format, similar to something like Perry Mason, with a rotating cast of super-powered beings looking for a criminal defense attorney. Either one would take advantage of the MCU’s expansive pantheon of characters, and it would be fun to see them step into She-Hulk’s world. She-Hulk has a more comedic tone (complete with fourth-wall breaking), meaning there’d be a chance to see some established MCU characters in a new way. Audiences will already see a lighter side of Daredevil in She-Hulk season 1, for example.

Of course, She-Hulk season 2 has not been officially confirmed yet, and it’s unknown if it will ever come to fruition. During their expansive panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel outlined their plans for the future, including revealing the entire Phase 5 lineup and the next two Avengers movies. Whether or not She-Hulk season 2 gets the green light may depend on if Marvel has a spot for it in the Multiverse Saga. Notably, they did not announce the entire Phase 6 slate yet, so it’s possible She-Hulk season 2 fits in there. If the show does continue, it’s encouraging the creative team already has ideas in mind, and hopefully they’ll get a chance to see them through. She-Hulk’s premise has a lot of potential for a long-running and entertaining Marvel series.
