This shouldn’t surprise comic book readers, since She-Hulk was a fixture of the twelve-issue comic book crossover that ran from May 1984 to April 1985, alongside characters such as Spider-Man, Namor, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Thanos. (not that Marvel’s film adaptations of their comic book arcs have ever been a direct xerox).
For the unversed, “Secret Wars” involves the destruction of the Marvel Universe and various other alternate universes, with each universe’s respective Earth combining with each other into Battleworld, a planet that exhibits the aspects of the various universes.Various versions of different characters pop up in Battleworld.
While Marvel Studios hasn’t officially announced a “Secret Wars” film, the Russo Brothers, who have directed four MCU flicks, called “Secret Wars” “event-storytelling at its finest”, with Anthony saying: “It would be the biggest movie you could possibly imagine, so that’s what really excites us about the story – the ambition of it is even bigger than the ambition of the Infinity Saga.”
Maslany makes her debut as She-Hulk on Disney+ later this year.
