There is a lot of enthusiasm for it She-Hulk: Lawyerbut a hard-to-believe rumor is circulating that the Disney+ series will introduce a fantastic new hero to the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
It’s always worth taking rumors with a grain of salt, but sometimes even the hardest-to-believe claims turn out to be true. After all, did anyone really believe that Charlie Cox would get his own Disney+ series as Daredevil or that Harry Styles would play Starfox, for example, when those claims were first reported?
Now, however, we have a particularly crazy rumor shared by CBR. It seems to have originated on Reddit or 4Chan (which is saying a lot), but if it’s correct we’ll see another member of the Fantastic Four in She-Hulk: Lawyer†
John Krasinski played a Mister Fantastic Variant in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but this report states that Ben Grimm, aka The Thing, will be part of the show. That would mark the character’s MCU debut and could point to Marvel’s First Family already existing in this shared world after the events of Avengers: Endgame†
There’s been speculation for some time now that the team might have obtained their powers during one of the Blips, and this could avoid the need for another origin story while also stirring up excitement for the Fantastic four the final release of reboot.
What’s particularly interesting about this is the fact that The Thing is reportedly played by How I met your mother star Jason Segel through motion capture and VFX. Ben will supposedly “fight a defamation case” in She-Hulkand fights with The Wrecking Crew and shares the screen with Jennifer Walters and Daredevil.
Please note that a She-Hulk A plot leak that was just as incredible surfaced not too long ago, only for the first trailer to corroborate much of what it claimed (like Frog-Man’s appearance and Wong’s now-confirmed supporting role). Whether this story is true remains to be seen, but it sure is a fun one to speculate about!
The Fantastic Four’s MCU debut was long overdue anyway, and as they bring in characters like Galactus and Doctor Doom, their presence promises to be a total game-changer. Only time will tell if that eventually includes a performance by The Thing, as early as next month.
She-Hulk: Lawyer premieres on Disney+ on August 17.
