Mark Ruffalo “passes the banner” to Tatiana Maslany in She-Hulk

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently in transition. Old heroes like Steve Rogers and Iron Man have been put out to pasture, while newer faces like Sam Wilson and Doctor Strange are rising to take their place.

This happens on the big screen as well as the small one. In hawk eye on Disney+, Jeremy Renner shared the screen with younger archer Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), who appears to be taking over his role. And later, Tatiana Maslany will enter the MCU as Jennifer Walters, better known as She-Hulk.

In the comics, Jennifer is the cousin of Bruce Banner, played in the MCU by Mark Ruffalo, and gains her powers after he gives her a blood transfusion. Bruce (in his Professor Hulk form) will appear in She-Hulk, and based on what Ruffalo had to say at Netflix’s premiere The Adam Projectthe show could be an opportunity for him to pass the Hulk baton on to another.

“Tatiana Maslany is damn legendary as the She-Hulk,” Ruffalo . told me Admission to Hollywood† “I’ll pass her the banner. There are really good, funny, cool [and] long, long scenes between Professor [Hulk] and they. We’ve never seen the Hulk interact with people the way he does on that show, so it’s going to be really interesting.”

“Passing the banner.” Ruffalo gets through with the puns.

We don’t know when the She-Hulk show is premiering, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it.

Charlie Cox is okay with a more PG version of daredevil in the MCU

But while some stars are transitioning from the MCU, others are thinking about officially joining it for the first time. For example, Charlie Cox starred in Netflix’s daredevil show, which was always a bit… MCU adjacent. It was technically part of the MCU, but it wasn’t made official until recently, when Cox had a brief cameo as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home

Could his Daredevil have future adventures in the MCU? Cox plays coy, though he’s definitely preparing for something† “I’ve been doing other things, I’ve been working on my kids, but about a month ago I re-raised my Marvel Unlimited account,” Cox said.† “And I started reading the comics again from scratch, which I haven’t done since we started the show all those years ago.”

And it’s funny, I’m rereading the ’98 Joe Quesada, Kevin Smith, the Guardian Devil. And it’s funny, I haven’t read it since I read it before we started recording the show. And it’s funny to read it now, I recognize so many moments we took. Because right at the beginning of that series there’s a confession, that’s almost how we started our show. And at the time I hadn’t read it enough to put the two together, but like he’s in a confessional, he’s basically saying the same lines as what I said in that booth at the beginning of episode one, season one. So it’s really nice to re-read it and to recognize little moments that were like little Easter eggs, the moments that I wasn’t aware of at the time.

It certainly sounds like Cox is gearing up to return to the role, although Disney won’t be more fully in charge, their daredevil may look a little different from Netflix’s. For example, it can be a little tame, which is something Cox could embrace. †[I]If they wanted to make a more PG version of Daredevil, I support them to find a way to do it where it’s completely consistent with everything we’ve done,” he said. “And maybe there’s a little less blood, maybe there’s a little bit of whatever, but I support them to do it.”

Cox isn’t the only Marvel Netflix castaway that may be gearing up for a comeback. Kristen Ritter played the title character in Jessica Jonesand fans have pointed to a recent Instagram post in which the actor looked a lot like her character as evidence that a revival may be on the way.

Granted, that’s thinner than Cox reading stacks daredevil comics, but there’s still excitement in the air.
