Two more of the Marvel series that come to Disney Plus have lead authors: Moon Knight and She-Hulk. Jessica Gao, the Emmy-winning author of Rick and Morty's memorable "Pickle Rick" episode, will be She-Hulk's showrunner, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the meantime, Moon Knight will be led by Jeremy Slater, Executive Producer and author of the Umbrella Academy.
There was no comment from either Marvel Studios or Disney on either news, but both authors went to Twitter to share their feelings about being hired to promote the MCU's stories.
I have followed She-Hulk for so long. This is the definition of a dream come true. November 8, 2019
I was seven years old when I bought my first Marvel comic, and my life was changed on the spot. It is no exaggeration to say that joining the MCU is the greatest honor of my career. I am excited and scared and incredibly happy. November 9, 2019
The story details for both Disney Plus series are meager, but Slater has the background to the show. "And while I can not tell you anything about history or casting, I can tell you that we've put together a room full of brilliant writers who really love this character, and it's us all working hard to make something special for you to create. "
What is this series about?
Both shows do not have a release date yet, but we can assume that they will bear fruit at some point after the already announced live performance Marvel series on Disney Plus. The last one, Hawkeye, is scheduled for the end of 2021. Maybe we will release these series in 2022, which feels a long way off, but will undoubtedly creep in on us as if no time had passed at all.
We would speculate that both series will go in the direction of more popular representations of the characters in the comics. For the last year and a half, She-Hulk has been a kind of superhero lawyer in her comics, with a slightly lighter tone. Moon Knight is about Marc Spector's broken personalities. His best recent portrayal was in a six-part series by writer Warren Ellis and artist Declan Shalvey, in which his classic cape costume was exchanged for a more primed suit and tie look. No doubt we will learn more about Marvel's Disney Plus efforts at D23 or the San Diego Comic Con next year.
Disney Plus will launch in the US, Canada and the Netherlands on November 12th.
