According to an exclusive from Deadline, Marvel Studios has tapped director Kat Coiro to executive produce and direct several episodes of the upcoming live action She-Hulk series for Disney Plus. Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao is running the writer’s room for the series.
She-Hulk is attorney Jennifer Walters who, after receiving an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner aka The Hulk, receives the powers of the Hulk but still retains her intellect and personality. Actor Mark Ruffalo, who plays Banner/Hulk in the MCU, has teased the possibility of his appearance on an upcoming She-Hulk series. No actress has been cast in the lead role at the time of this story.
Kat Coiro is known for directing several television series episodes including Dead To Me, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Shameless, Modern Family and Brooklyn Nine-Nine among others.
