Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed She-Hulk will be a half-hour legal comedy series on the Disney+ streaming service.

There have been more details revealed in terms of what fans can expect from the upcoming She-Hulk series for Disney+. These details came from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige himself during an interview with Emmy Magazine (H/T: During said interview, he confirmed that the show will be a half-hour legal comedy series.

Since the episodes are shorter and this is the first property on the Disney Plus streaming platform that is doing this half-hour format, does that mean there could be more episodes (at least when compared to other series that lean towards the hour-long episode format)?

What She-Hulk’s new format means for the show

With She-Hulk‘s format, it could mean that the show produces more than the typical six episodes, perhaps offering up in and around 10 or 13 episodes instead. We’ve seen half-hour comedy animated shows do this for years – with Rick and Morty being a recent example – and live-action productions like Hulu’s Love, Victor (which was originally intended for Disney Plus) doing the same, so it would make a fair amount of sense.

After weeks and months of rumors and reports, it was recently confirmed at Disney Investor Day that Tatiana Maslany would indeed be playing Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk in the titular series. Maslany, confirming the casting, posted a picture of the comic book character on her social media accounts.

Jessica Gao is serving as showrunner, Dana Schwartz is writing the series with Kat Coiro and Anu Valia directing. Gao, Coiro and Feige are all credited as executive producers on She-Hulk. Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth will reprise their roles from previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films as Dr Bruce Banner/The Hulk and Emil Blonsky/The Abomination respectively.

There have been rumors that She-Hulk, which is rumored to begin production sometime in February 2021, is influenced by the John Byrne comics run The Sensational She-Hulk – which is very comedic and eccentric in nature. There also have been rumblings (reported by The Illuminerdi) of a female Big Bad described as a social-media influencer with a dark side who will feature prominently in at least five episodes.
