Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk may have its release date pushed back to early 2023, according to a new rumor.
According to Reddit user lyserg16, She-Hulk may not be coming to Disney Plus until next year, with the Marvel TV show apparently suffering from a number of visual effects (VFX) issues.
For now, lyserg16 says the Marvel Phase 4 project is still on track for a late 2022 launch. However, the Redditor suggests that She-Hulk may need to be delayed until January 2023, with VFX complications being the main concern. reason for the potential delay.
Usually we suggest that such speculation should be taken with a huge pile of salt, but there may be some truth to the latest lyserg16 leak. In the spring of 2020, lyserg16 took to Reddit to post a number of major WandaVision spoilers — leaked information, such as Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness being the show’s main villain, which was proven to be correct. Based on lyserg16’s background, then, it seems there is an element of truth to their latest leak.
Another prominent Marvel leaker – KC Walsh – has apparently confirmed these claims as well. Asked by a Twitter follower if they’d heard of a possible release delay, Walsh initially replied “no.” However, Walsh went on to suggest that their source mentioned the visual effects issues as a “headache” throughout the post-production phase of She-Hulk – further proof that all might not be right. not well with his development.

We’ve reached out to Disney to comment on this She-Hulk rumor and will update this article if we hear back.
Billed as a 10-episode legal comedy-drama, She-Hulk will star Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner/Hulk’s cousin and a lawyer who specializes in cases involving superpowered beings.
In the comics, Walters is seriously injured in a shootout and receives a blood transfusion from Banner to save her life. Unsurprisingly, Walters develops superpowers similar to Hulk’s, allowing him to fight crime on two fronts, namely in the courtroom and on the streets. Expect a similar origin story to unfold in the superhero’s TV show every time it arrives.
Analysis: Would She-Hulk’s supposed delay be such a bad idea?
Currently, She-Hulk is one of the potentially six Marvel TV shows are set to land on Disney Plus in 2022.
Currently, Moon Knight is halfway through its episodic run on the streaming platform – check out our Episode 3 Easter Eggs article while you’re here – and will be followed by Ms. Marvel on June 8th. She-Hulk, Secret Invasion, What If. ..? season 2 and I Am Groot are all set to land on Disney Plus this year as well.
Meanwhile, two TV specials are also slated to launch on Disney’s streaming service in 2022. A Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday special is slated for release in December, while a Halloween special based on one of the enemies of Moon Knight’s comic – Werewolf By Night – is expected. arrive in October.
Throw in three Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films in Doctor Strange 2, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – all of which will launch exclusively in theaters – and Marvel’s 2022 slate looks absolutely stacked.
With up to 11 projects hitting theaters and on Disney Plus in 2022, would a delayed release for She-Hulk be such a bad thing? Not necessarily. She-Hulk is likely to be a visual effects-heavy show – due to the number of CGI superpowered characters it can pack – so its post-production phase is sure to be a drawn-out affair. If Marvel Studios needs more time to make sure She-Hulk’s visual effects live up to the high standards fans typically expect from a Marvel movie or TV series, we’re happy to help. wait longer for its arrival.
The problem, however, is that Marvel is probably already moving forward with its 2023 slate. Next year we’ll see The Marvels, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Debut in rooms. Additionally, four other MCU TV shows – Ironheart, Armor Wars, Echo, and an untitled Wakanda series – are all set to begin filming over the next 12 months ahead of any 2023 releases.
If She-Hulk is delayed, Marvel may have to move its Phase 4 TV slate to accommodate it. Given the number of projects in the works, that wouldn’t be ideal, especially since Marvel announced it. another batch of TV projects during the Disney Plus Day celebrations in November 2021.
Hopefully Marvel (and Disney) won’t be long in confirming whether She-Hulk will be released this year. Whether it is or not, you will be the first to know.
