She-Hulk May Already Be Cancelled
According to actress Tatiana Maslany, it isn't looking good for a second season of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Well, it looks like all the controversy and backlash surrounding season one of She-Hulk may have finally done a number on the Marvel series. She-Hulk actresses Tatiana Maslany and Jameela Jamil recently addressed whether a season two of She-Hulk was in the cards at Marvel. According to the actresses, it seems unlikely that Jen Walters will return to Disney+.
During her interview with Extra, Maslany was asked if season two of She-Hulk was happening. Maslany expressed her doubt about the possibility and revealed that MCU boss Kevin Feige was “very dismissive” of the idea. When the interview stated that She-Hulk not getting a second season would break many fans’ hearts, Maslany reiterated that she “really doesn’t know” if the show would return but that she would love to do more.
Adding more fuel to the fire is Jameela Jamil, who played Titania in season one of She-Hulk. Following the season one finale, the actress tweeted a photo of herself with Maslany and what appeared to be a goodbye message to fans. She also included Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo.
There has been some doubt that She-Hulk would get a second season since the series premiered on Disney+. While the show has received mostly positive reviews from critics, a large group of fans online absolutely despise it. The backlash got so strong and loud that Jamil herself decided to defend the show on multiple occasions.
It also didn’t help that the show’s season finale was very divisive. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Maslany revealed there were around 20 different versions of the ending at one point. For those who watched the series finale of She-Hulk, then you know how it breaks the fourth wall and completely scraps what looked to be a big action brawl at the end.
She-Hulk attempts to address one of the major complaints regarding modern comic book movies, which is that they always end in a bloated third-act CGI battle. In the finale, Jen Walters literally pauses the show to jump into the Disney+ interface and the offices of Marvel Studios. It’s there that she has a heart-to-heart with K.E.V.I.N., an A.I. who comes up with all the storylines and plot threads of the expanded Marvel universe.
During her conversation with K.E.V.I.N., Jen Walters criticized how most MCU shows and movies have a bloated third-act showdown. The show then ends with the police already having arrested the big bad and She-Hulk continuing her dual life as a superhero/lawyer. While this isn’t the first time a Marvel property has broken the fourth wall, it does give enough ammunition to those who were already decided to hate the show for its storytelling and script issues.
Jen Walters does play a significant role in the Secret Wars comic book. If She-Hulk doesn’t get a second season, then maybe the next time fans will see her is in the upcoming Avengers film, which has recently been delayed to 2026. Although it would be four years after her show, it may give fans enough time to miss the character.
