Deadline is reporting that director Kat Coiro is in negotiations to direct and executive produce the pilot and several other episodes of Marvel’s She-Hulk series for Disney+. Writer Jessica Gao has already been tapped to lead the writers room. Gao is credited with the Rick and Morty series. The last major character to be co-created by Stan Lee, She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gave Walters her powers, but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out. Marvel's She-Hulk is just one of projects being developed for Disney+, with The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki all in production and set to bow in the next year. Coiro is credited with directing numerous TV shows including Netflix’s Dead To Me, Showtime’s Shameless and FX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, along with Modern Family, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Mozart in the Jungle.
