Marvel Is Definitely About To Introduce A New MCU Hulk

Warning: This post contains SPOILERS for She-Hulk episode 7!

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get a brand-new Hulk, as She-Hulk: Attorney At Law episode 7 directly sets it up. The introduction of Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) to the MCU in Phase 4 created a massive opportunity for Marvel Studios. Thanks to her She-Hulk origin story and subsequent reveals, the shared universe is in a better position than ever to keep introducing new Hulks. She-Hulk has already featured Smart Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Abomination (Tim Roth) as part of Jennifer Walters' show, but so far she is the only new Hulk introduced in the series.

Marvel has continued to tease the possibility of more Hulks coming to the MCU throughout She-Hulk. The series' first episode included a mention of how dangerous Hulk's blood is and the great lengths Bruce Banner goes to destroy any extra traces so it does not fall into the wrong hands. Jennifer has since had to deal with people attempting to steal her blood, with She-Hulk episode 6 indicating that the Reddit-like Intelligencia group is behind this mission. All this did was further tease the possibility of someone getting a sample of Jennifer's blood, which Smart Hulk already teased was even better for creating Hulks than his.

She-Hulk episode 7 makes it clear that a new Hulk is coming to the MCU. She-Hulk episode 7's ending confirms that Josh works for Intelligencia and HulkKing and that he took some of Jennifer's blood while she was sleeping. It is quite evident that Intelligencia wants to create a new Hulk, likely one that is not female, using She-Hulk's DNA. Otherwise, their interest in obtaining something so valuable would not make much sense. The radical group is directly connected to the creation of various Hulks in the comics too. As a result, She-Hulk is setting up Jennifer to fight a new Hulk created from her blood in season 1's final two episodes.

Who The MCU's New Hulk Could Be

Now that Intelligencia has She-Hulk's DNA, the MCU's new Hulk created by them could be directly pulled from the comics. The comic version of Marvel's Intelligencia is led by The Leader and MODOK, and it is part of their plan that Red Hulk is created. The MCU already has Thunderbolt Ross established, but William Hurt's passing in real life means that such a reveal is unlikely unless Marvel recasts the role. There is a second man to hold the Red Hulk in the comics, Robert Maverick, who She-Hulk could introduce as the MCU's new Hulk. While Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) has also become Red She-Hulk in the comics, Intelligencia's hatred of women makes that seem unlikely.

There is also room for She-Hulk's new MCU Hulk to be one of Marvel's other Hulk-related characters or an entirely new creation. Josh or one of the other Intelligencia guys could transform themselves into a Hulk thinking they can be better than Jennifer Walters. It would be a fun twist if Rick Jones was the one to become Marvel's new Hulk, as his close relationship with Bruce Banner and eventual transformation into A-Bomb could work within the MCU's story. But unless Intelligencia is just working for Captain America: New World Order's villain The Leader (Tim Blake Nelson) and trying to get him more Hulk blood to make himself smarter, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law certainly looks to be on its way to introducing a new Hulk soon.

New episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law release on Thursdays on Disney+.
