Natalie Portman taking on the role of Thor in Love and Thunder has been making waves. Now, another female character is expected to enter the MCU and turn everything upside down.
Rumors are swirling that the still unannounced Spider-Man 3 flick will include a female hero in the form of She-Hulk. The inclusion of She-Hulk would be the first time the character would appear in the universe.
Warning: Spoilers from Spider-Man: Far From Home ahead under “What Will Spider-Man 3 be About?”
What Will Spider-Man 3 Be About?
Spider-Man 3 is expected to deal with the fallout of Peter Parker’s big reveal in Spider-Man: Far From Home. With the world turning against the wall-crawling superhero, Parker will be forced to defend himself, alleges Screen Rant.
The Sinister Six are expected to be unveiled in the film, at least in part. Vulture, Shocker, and Scorpion have all been utilized in the MCU already. Prowler was also recently debuted. Now, fans believe that Kraven the Hunter could appear in the upcoming Spider-Man flick.
Tom Holland will be reprising his role as Spider-Man. Holland is currently signed on for six films, and Far From Home was his fifth offering. Zendaya is also expected to return to reprise her role as MJ. Marisa Tomei is also expected to reprise her role as Aunt May.
What Role Would She-Hulk Play In Spider-Man 3?
During Spider-Man: Far from Home, Mysterio reveals Spider-Man’s true identity. The mid-credit teaser suggested that Peter Parker was a wanted man for the alleged murder of Mysterio. If Spidey is, in fact, a wanted man, he’ll need a good lawyer. The lawyer he’ll be using is rumored to be Jen Walters, also known as She-Hulk. Walter is Bruce Banner’s cousin.
She-Hulk received all of Hulk’s powers when she received a blood transfusion from her cousin. Now, she has the capabilities of Hulk, but a deep desire for justice, according to Marvel. Her inclusion in Spider-man would allow for her storyline to be included in future movie offerings. Marvel is moving forward with plans to tie the universe more closely to series that they will be offering on Disney+ in the fall.
Why Was She-Hulk Chosen Over Other Characters?
Fans are questioning the potential inclusion of She-Hulk over other likely characters who could act as Spider-Man’s lawyer. Many believed that Daredevil would surface in the MCU to serve as Spider-Man’s lawyer if he actually needs one, but logistical issues are keeping that from happening.
According to Comic Book News, Daredevil would not be able to appear in a Marvel movie for another eighteen months because of the Netflix deal that existed. Because the Spider-Man 3 script has already been written, and the film is planned before Netflix’s hold on the character expires, he simply can’t be used right now. That, however, doesn’t mean that Daredevil will never appear in a film. In fact, his inclusion in the storyline is expected eventually.
