At the D23 Disney Plus Showcase on Friday night, Marvel Studios mastermind Kevin Feige announced that the company will produce a series based around Bruce Banner’s cooler cousin, Jennifer Walters.

In other words, She-Hulk is getting her own series.

Details on the series were scant, other than that it will be the latest of the currently announced Marvel Cinematic Universe Disney Plus series to premiere. In the comics, Jennifer Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner, given her gamma powers by a life-saving blood transfusion.

Only, for Jennifer, transforming into the She-Hulk doesn’t require losing her mind to rage — she’s just as articulate and in control in her giant green form as she is when she’s small and pink. And she’s also one of the foremost superhero law experts in the Marvel Universe.

Fans have long despaired of seeing Jen on the big screen, due to Universal Studios’ joint ownership of the film rights to the Hulk and associated characters. But with this announcement, we just might see that long-awaited She-Hulk legal procedural on screens in the next few years.
