She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the latest Marvel series on Disney+, ends with a plethora of twists and turns. One of the biggest surprises was kept for the end: the introduction of Hulk’s kid, Skaar. The film broke the fourth wall more than ever before and featured a return appearance by Matt Murdock.
Jessica Gao, the author of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, recently discussed the inclusion of Skaar in the Hulk gang in an interview with EW, and what his introduction could portend for the future of the MCU.
At first, when we were discussing how the season would conclude, we thought, “It would be cool if we did a big cameo at the very, very end, the last scene, the last moment, a significant cameo from the MCU.
That’d be awesome, but then we realised it depends so much on who is willing to do it and when they are available, and there is no way we could get guarantees on who could do it during writing. Because of how crucial that is, there is no way to invest in a character in the screenplay.
So then we thought it would be nice to tease a new character at the end, either at the end of the final scene or as a post-credits tag.”
When asked how they settled on Skaar for the final cameo, Gao said, “[the writers] went through a lot of the comics to find out who we could use,” before adding, “it was dependent on whether or not [Marvel boss] Kevin [Feige] would say okay all of that.”
Undoubtedly, many ideas were shot down by the iron fist of K.E.V.I.N. “If you have further inquiries into why the name was chosen to be Skaar, please contact Kevin directly.
What Would Bruce Banner and the She-Hulk Will Do If Skaar Makes an Appearance?
The Hulk and Caiera the Oldstrong had their son Skaar, who was first seen on the pages of Marvel Comics in 2007’s World War Hulk, while Hulk was a champion gladiator on the planet Sakaar.
Skaar conquers a planet, is exiled to Earth and fights with She-Hulk before being mentored by his father, Bruce Banner, to become the best Hulk possible. How significant a part Skaar will play in the MCU is unknown at this time.
His entrance, however, strongly suggests that Kevin Feige has plans for the Hulk and that we should expect to see a lot of him in the near future.
Jennifer Walters, a single attorney in her 30s, has a lot on her plate before an accident turns her into the 6-foot-7-inch green superhero She-Hulk.
Her life, already full of drama, gets much more complicated in the MCU‘s first sitcom, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Starring Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, alongside Jameela Jamil, Ginger Gonzaga, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Segarra, Jon Bass, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Tim Roth, Benedict Wong, and Charlie Cox, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premiered on August 18, 2022, and has been met with largely positive reviews from critics.
