Star Wars may have gotten to start the year off with The Book of Boba Fett for Disney+, but Marvel Studios is already gearing up to make up lost time judging by its potential slate of projects set to hit the streaming service this year. First up is Moon Knight before Ms. Marvel, Secret Invasion, Werewolf By Night, and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special come later in the year. Then, of course, there’s also She-Hulk in the mix.
The show is set to be a completely new experience for MCU viewers, with reports teasing that the project will be a sitcom-style comedy. Rumor has it there are even fourth-wall breaks like the ones seen in Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool movies.
The character’s circumstances are likely to play into lots of the show’s comedic moments. The lead character, Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters, is a lawyer by day in her Hulk form throughout the show – an image which should be enough to give an idea of the wacky humor that’s expected.
Now the show’s director has commented on how much she loved the comics and how her passion was the key to landing the gig.

How to Become an MCU Director
She-Hulk director Kat Coiro spoke about her passion for the source material and how that same enthusiasm landed her the job with Marvel Studios.
Coiro made it clear how “[she is] a huge fan of the MCU… [and] of the She-Hulk comics,” and revealed the process of getting the job was a “huge and involved process”
The director continued praising her experience at Marvel, saying that it was “never about anybody’s ego.” Coiro credits her “passionate” view of She-Hulk and Marvel that ultimately earned her the directorial position.
As for the show itself, the woman behind the new green hero was tight-lipped. Coiro did, however, make it clear how she “[is] really happy with it” and that the hope is to “satisfy the fans”
Marvel Dream Job?
Something that seems fairly consistent across many of Marvel Studios’ projects is the praises sung about the collaborative environment. The MCU would not have become what it is today if it was a terrible place to be—stories and collaborators would be consistently falling through the cracks.
Sure, there’s a creative difference that might arise from time to time, but at the end of the day, that’s natural. Disagreements are bound to happen. Even with those incidents, Marvel’s track record is clearly still excellent.
With her passion for the She-Hulk character, it’s hard not to wonder if Kat Coiro would want to come on board again for a second season. With it being a legal comedy-drama, it seems more stories should be fairly easy to fit into the wider MCU.
After all, Marvel can’t let Peter Parker be the only one with a really good lawyer.
