Marvel Studios Reveals She-Hulk’s Specific Place in the MCU Timeline
Written by on May 30, 2023
The first season of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law now has a definitive place on the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
According to some sample pages from the upcoming encyclopedia book Marvel Studios The Marvel Cinematic Universe An Official Timeline (via The Direct), the Disney+ show is set from 2024 to 2025. More specifically, the Hulk’s involvement in She-Hulk spreads through both those years, allowing fans to surmise that the series premiere flashback to Jennifer Walters being trained by her cousin, Bruce Banner/Hulk, took place in 2024 while the rest of the season — set in “present day” — took place throughout 2025. This lines up with the “Marvel Cinematic Universe in Timeline Order” section on Disney+, which places She-Hulk: Attorney at Law between Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Spring 2025) and Ms. Marvel (Fall 2025).
The forthcoming Marvel Studios encyclopedia was announced in December 2022 and is described as “the definitive, filmmaker-endorsed guide” to the MCU and its timeline that “will answer the biggest questions: what happened, when, where, and why.” Since the launch of the MCU in 2008 with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, the timeline has rapidly expanded to cover multiple worlds, timelines and characters, with the book’s summary assuring readers that they will be able to “follow the entire story of the MCU from before the Big Bang to the Blip and beyond. Along the way, learn more about the evolution of the Iron Man armors, the hunt for the Infinity Stones, and the formation of the Multiverse.”
Marvel Submits She-Hulk for Emmy Consideration
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Season 1 was released weekly on Disney+ from August to October 2022, making it eligible for consideration in the upcoming 75th Primetime Emmy Awards. Marvel Studios recently submitted the Disney+ series for consideration in 19 Emmy categories, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Directing for a Comedy Series, Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Marvel also submitted Patty Guggenheim, who played instant fan-favorite Madisynn, and Charlie Cox, who reprised his role as Daredevil from previous MCU media, for Guest Actress and Actor in a Comedy Series, respectively.
What’s Next for She-Hulk?
Despite She-Hulk‘s first season ending with more than one dangling plot thread, Marvel Studios has not yet renewed the series for a second season. Despite the lack of renewal, series head writer Jessica Gao has revealed that she knows where to take the Jade Giantess next. “Honestly, even when I pitched the show, I already had an idea of where I would want it to go for another season and what the premise of that season would be. From the beginning, I had ideas of where it would go,” she said in August 2022. ” There are a lot of things that we just couldn’t get to, or had to cut from the first season, and it would be really nice for those things to see the light of day again.” Mark Ruffalo also stated around that time that he had heard that She-Hulk will be in the next Avengers movie. At this time, Marvel has not officially announced who will be starring in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is currently streaming on Disney+.
