She-Hulk: Attorney at Law writer Jessica Gao wants to see Tatiana Maslany's jade giant appear in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, she tells in an exclusive interview.


The character was introduced in the comics back in 1980 and became associated with Marvel's First Family just a few years later, in the wake of the action-packed Secret Wars storyline.

The comic book event, which saw the strongest characters in the universe duke it out for the Beyonder's entertainment, ended with Ben Grimm (aka The Thing) staying on Battleworld while his fellow FF members returned to Earth.

That left one position vacant on Marvel's original super-team which was swiftly filled by She-Hulk, who continued to be a close friend to the Richards family in the decades that followed.

When asked where she'd like to see She-Hulk appear next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Gao told "I mean, obviously staying true to the comics, she should have some involvement with the Fantastic Four, I think."

"But really, I love Tatiana so much, and I love She-Hulk so much that I want her to be in everything. Like, I think she should be in every single Marvel project."

The Fantastic Four have so far had three live-action incarnations – an unreleased '90s version, a two-part noughties franchise and a botched 2015 reboot – but none have realised the full potential of the beloved characters.

Fans are hoping that Marvel Studios will be able to finally perfect the formula with its MCU canon version, which is currently scheduled for release in November 2024.

Over the weekend, it was announced that producer Kevin Feige is in talks with WandaVision director Matt Shakman to helm the much-anticipated project, which is rumoured to be a period piece paying homage to the team's 1960s creation.

There's no word yet on which actors will star, with Marvel yet to clarify whether John Krasinski's Mister Fantastic cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a fun throwaway moment or a formal introduction. of the character.
