The Incredible Hulk has had a fascinating journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starting out as Edward Norton from The Fighter Club, the role was swiftly recast with Mark Ruffalowhen's The Avengerscame around. Now, Dr. Bruce Banner will be mentoring his similarly gamma-powered cousin, Jennifer Walters in Marvel Studios' upcoming streaming showShe-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
When a new MCU series or film is added to Disney+, the streaming service broadcasts a new episode ofMarvel Studios: Legends. These short-form videos serve as short-form recaps of everything a specific character has been up to leading up to their next adventure. For example, a week beforeHawkeyepremiered in late 2021, aLegendsepisode was released focusing on Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton, showing footage from all
Marvel appears to be sticking to the trend with theShe-Hulkseries on the horizon.
Bruce Banner Receives His Own Legends Episode
According to a new tweet from Disney+'s official Twitter account in Italy, the streamer will release an all-new episode of Marvel Studios Legendson on Wednesday, August 10. This particular episode will follow viewers through the majority, if not all, of the Hulk's MCU performances ahead of She-Hulk'spremiere on Thursday, August 18.
Will Banner's Story Included in All Stories?
The big question is whether or not Disney+ intends to extend Bruce's and the Hulk's MCU exploits? Will that include 2008's The Incredible Hulk?
It's unclear who played Banner in the film. Edward Norton has since been re-enacted by Mark Ruffalo in all subsequent movies that feature the character. Marvel has, however, shown a willingness to reuse footage from the film that features the Hulk himself.
Although Incredible Hulk's villain, the Abomination, might be used in a significant capacity by Marvel, both characters were digitally created, so they would not have to portray Norton's face on-screen.
In some overseas areas, The Incredible Hulkhas has been included to Disney+, so perhaps the platform will be more willing to allow footage from the film in the Legendsepisode.
Bruce's role in She-Hulkap appears to be quite significant. Jen gets her powers from accidentally inhaling some of his blood during a car accident, and it appears like Bruce takes it upon himself to train her in the ways of the Hulk, so it will be interesting to see if he joins forces with Jennifer during the final battle.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law from Marvel Studios will be available on Disney+ on Thursday, August 18.
