The first two Marvel Studios produced shows to stream on Disney+ (WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier) are reportedly slated to be six episodes in total. For shows beyond that (Loki, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk), it was unknown if they would follow that same count. That was until now.
On her Instagram account, She-Hulk director Kat Coiro said that she would be directing six episodes in total (pilot, season finale and four others). Anu Valia, who will also serve as director, said in a separate post, that “@katcoiro is our visionary leader im just doing a few eppys !! but it’ll be a fun one.” So at the very minimum, there will be eight total episodes in the run.
Recently Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige described She-Hulk as being a “half-hour legal comedy.” While it’s possible that he was using the wording of “half-hour” figuratively, perhaps this is why there will be more than the typical six episodes. Because they are shorter per each one.
Shooting for She-Hulk will begin in March and star Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters (aka She-Hulk). It will also see the return of Tim Roth as the Abomination. A role he first played in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Also slated to make an appearance in the show is the Hulk himself Mark Ruffalo.
Look for She-Hulk to hit Disney+ sometime in 2022.
Correction Update on 1/4/2021:
Marvel Studios has announced that WandaVision will consist of nine episodes and not the reported six that is mentioned above.
