The upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk may pave the way for the return and debut of many other Superheroes and teams through MCU crossovers.
A character that has been anticipated for long in the MCU, She-Hulk will soon be making her live-action debut with her Disney+ series. While no official release date has been set, a 2022 release seems probable. This much time at hand allows us to think about the different possibilities that the character can bring in.

Jennifer Walters’ MCU Debut
Jennifer Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner, who is an attorney by day, and the gorgeous She-Hulk, thanks to a blood transfusion from Bruce. However, unlike Bruce, she can retain her wit and emotional control. For the time being, there is absolutely no info about the series. Ther are interesting rumours about Bruce Banner’s (Mark Ruffalo) flashback tale to be told in this series to connect She-Hulk with the main MCU timeline. But, the character itself ushers in ways to incorporate multiple crossovers and intertwined storylines.
While the latest reports have thrown us all into the confusion of whether Tatiana Maslany will play the role or not, the release of the working title means that production is all geared up to start.
She-Hulk Can Introduce Matt Murdock AKA the Daredevil
Jennifer Walters reminds us of another famous MCU character, another legal representative, Matt Murdock, also known as The Daredevil. We have already seen him in his own Netflix series, but it got canceled after the 3rd season. Who knows, this might be a good way to bring him into the MCU as well. To see them team up to fight villains as they defend their clients against each other will certainly be a treat to the eyes. Moreover, since She-Hulk will be intrinsically tied to the MCU storyline, many more figures might show up. If we are to borrow from Marvel comics, Jennifer Walters was the one who represented Spider-Man in court for his libel case against the Daily Bugle. (She-Hulk #4). She also defended Speedball during the Civil War crossover in the comics.
The Fantastic Four And A Force
Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, She-Hulk has been a part of great many iconic ‘groups of remarkable people.’ These include not only the Avengers but also The Fantastic Four, The Defenders, and The A-Force. About A-Force, Marvel already showed a clear but cheap glimpse of it towards the end of Endgame. This is when we see all the female superheroes together on the big-screen after Captain Marvel grabs the gauntlet from Peter Parker. The moment was no less than a milestone.
But till now, it can easily be said that Marvel has not been just in representing female superheroes. Even Black Widow, who was introduced in Iron Man in 2008, still has her own standalone movie in the pipeline. So, this seems to be the perfect time and way to introduce A-Force into the MCU. And the good news is that Letitia Wright (Shuri in Black Panther) confirmed that the time for the arrival of female Avengers is coming. Marvel Studios executives Victoria Alonso and Kevin Feige also support it. The Fantastic Four can also get their reboot with this. She-Hulk shares a deep connection with the Fantastic Four. And even though there are no reports of the reboot, there can be a mention in the series.
Deadpool Because She-Hulk Can Break the Fourth Wall
In Marvel comics, She-Hulk can break the fourth wall, much like our very own Merc with a Mouth AKA Deadpool. So, if she arrives in live-action, we can expect that Deadpool will also be addressed in some way or the other.
In the Deadpool movies, breaking the fourth wall has always been used to add a touch of comedy. Sometimes, this is to mock other superheroes, and sometimes even the actors playing them. This was evident in Deadpool, where we saw Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and the mention of both Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy as Professor Xavier. Reports also say that Ryan Reynolds is to sign the biggest deal with Marvel. So can this mean that we might see him elsewhere too, like in MCU She-Hulk? Who knows, Marvel is really good at surprises after all.
