She-Hulk Will Premiere on Disney+ But Not Everyone Is Happy About It

Fans thought that Marvel was done revealing new content after San Diego Comic-Con. During the famed convention, Kevin Feige bombarded fans with news. It looked like Phase 4 was completely revealed, but the Marvel head had a few more tricks up his sleeve. At D23, Feige revealed a few more secrets for Disney’s upcoming streaming platform, and She-Hulk is included in the lineup. While many fans rejoiced at the idea of She-Hulk coming to the new service, not everyone is happy about it.

She-Hulk will be coming to Disney’s streaming platform

She-Hulk will officially be joining the world of streaming content. The lawyer with a thirst for justice has Hulk’s strength and power. She-Hulk, also known as Jennifer Walters, is Bruce Banner’s cousin. After receiving a blood transfusion from Banner, she is infused with his power.

It had previously been rumored that She-Hulk could potentially appear in the upcoming Spider-Man 3 flick. Fans were previously worried that the film would never get made now that Sony and Marvel are in a bitter standoff. IGN, however, reports that the script is still being worked on.

Whether She-Hulk will show up in the film or not remains to be seen, but what fans know is that she will be showing up on Disney+ in the coming year. The show will premiere in Fall 2020, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Complaints about She-Hulk are already rolling in

While most fans are excited to see She-Hulk represented on the streaming platform, not everyone is happy about the announcement. According to The Independent, fans have flocked to Disney’s official page to complain about the news, In fact, they are accusing the company of “pandering to the left”.

The big issue that some fans seem to have is Marvel’s move to include more female characters in their television series and movies. For decades, Marvel has largely avoided the use of female characters, at least in a lead role. That’s all changing now. While the majority of people are happy to see She-Hulk take the screen, some fans feel the company is selling out and moving away from its original vibe. That isn’t actually the case, though. Female characters have played an immense role in comic book worlds for decades. In fact, She-Hulk first appeared in 1980.

Disney’s upcoming lineup is incredible

When Disney sets its mind to something, they always seem to do it right. It seems like they are taking the same steps with their streaming platform, Disney+. The platform is set to debut in the fall and the lineup of original content is shaping up to be a true game-changer. According to Forbes, the streaming platform will house content based on Loki. Fans will also see a ton from Marvel, including The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, a Hawkeye and Kate Bishop series, and content centered around Scarlet Witch and Vision.

Those not into the world of comics will have plenty to choose from, too. Disney isn’t alone in the streaming platform game, though. They will be going up against the established streaming giant, Netflix. Newcomers to streaming video content are also sure to bring competition. Apple’s streaming service recently dropped a trailer for their The Newsroom-inspired series starring Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon.
