Although we’re still very early in the game, the recently announced She-Hulk series set to premiere on Disney Plus is really shaping up to be something special. I mean, not only is it exciting to see the titular heroine headlining her own TV show at long last, but we’ve also gotten word of a few more villains who’ll appear.
Before we get further into this discussion, we’ll assure you that this information comes from the same source who originally told us that a She-Hulk project was in the works – four months before it was officially confirmed. Furthermore, they also recently informed us that Red Hulk will show up at some point, but we’re here to talk about a couple other baddies today.
For those of you who enjoyed 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, you should be thrilled to learn that both the Abomination and the Leader are said to put in appearances. Right now, we’re not sure if they’ll be recurring or if they’ll be “freaks of the week,” but each are being discussed.
Without a doubt, those two villains just mentioned have remained some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s biggest dangling threads for well over a decade. Well, maybe not so much the Abomination because he was handily defeated by the Green Goliath, but we never got to see Samuel Sterns’ beginnings as the Leader paid off. But now, it looks like we finally will.
When it comes to the lead character herself, I’d say to the layman that Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters, is somewhat comparable to the Smart Hulk seen in Avengers: Endgame insofar that she’s always in green form and retains her intelligence. Staying with that, I’d advise the producers to look to Charles Soule’s acclaimed She-Hulk comic book run showcasing what she can do as an attorney. But regardless of what Marvel has planned, this is sure to be a can’t-miss series.
