In the ever-evolving world of superhero television, the future of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” remains uncertain. Tatiana Maslany, who brought the character Jennifer Walters to life, has cast doubts about the likelihood of a second season. During a recent appearance on a live stream, Maslany hinted that a massive budget, which reportedly reached about $25 million per episode, may have played a significant role in Disney’s reluctance to greenlight a follow-up season.
The decision not to proceed with a second season of “She-Hulk” doesn’t come as a complete surprise. Despite the show’s unique blend of legal comedy and superhero drama, and featuring a cast that included the likes of Mark Ruffalo reprising his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, the show’s exorbitant costs seem to have outweighed its benefits for Disney.
Maslany’s remarks reflect a growing trend in the streaming and superhero landscape, where the balance between creative ambition and financial viability is constantly being assessed. In the case of “She-Hulk,” it appears that despite the creative success and the introduction of a beloved character, the financial aspect may have been a decisive factor. Maslany humorously mentioned that they “blew our budget,” leading Disney to decline a second season.
This development raises questions about the future direction of Marvel‘s television projects, especially in light of the mixed responses some of their recent series have received. It seems that for now, fans of “She-Hulk” will have to be content with the first season’s exploration of Jennifer Walters’ life as a superhero and attorney, as well as her adventures and struggles in balancing both worlds.
