Happy Thursday, Marvel lovers. Let’s start as we mean to go on by gushing over today’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law finale. For a show that’s been reveling in its low-stakes storytelling, the superhero sitcom’s last episode may well prove to be a looking glass into the future of the MCU, as it offered hints at practically an entire phase-full of upcoming projects.

She-Hulk finale breaks the fandom (and Disney Plus) with Skaar, X-Men, and Scarlet Witch shouts
For a half-hour of comedic TV, She-Hulk sure squeezed in a heck load of the heavy lifting for what’s to come in this franchise.

Showrunner Jessica Gao was asked the big question about Shulkie’s future in the wake of the finale’s release and she had to admit that it’s out of her hands and the decision rests with Kevin Feige.

Namor star is hoping to spread their (little) wings in some Black Panther 2 spinoffs
We haven’t actually got to see him on screen yet but the MCU’s newest villain, Tenoch Huerta, is already ready to return as Namor the Sub-Mariner beyond Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The actor revealed that they cannot wait to fly (using their funky little boot-wings) to other corners of the franchise after their imminent debut, which may have just spoiled the fact that the underwater monarch makes it out of his battle with Wakanda alive and
