Initial Release Date: 2022
'She-Hulk' does not have an official release date yet, but the series is expected to premiere on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
The series was supposed to begin filming on July 6, 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was rescheduled for March 2021 but wasn't able to begin filming until the following month.
In April 2021, the official website of Georgia reported that She-Hulk has finally started filming in the state.

Much of the plot details remain under the wraps as of this writing, but the comics might reveal some clues as to what to expect from the Disney+ show.
In the Marvel comics, Jennifer Susan Walters, a lawyer, and Bruce Banner's cousin suffer a life-threatening injury after taking a bullet from a henchman of a crimelord who wanted his father killed. She needed a blood transfusion from a family member, and the only available donor was Bruce, who is also The Hulk. Bruce's gamma-irradiated blood was transfused to Jen, and it gave her the ability to transform into She-Hulk. She-Hulk possesses incredible strength, speed, and recuperating ability. However, unlike Bruce, she gets to retain her emotional psyche and intelligence when in the form of the green giant.
Tatiana Maslany will star as Jennifer Susan Walters, aka 'She-Hulk.' The actress is widely known for her performance on the acclaimed sci-fi drama Orphan Black, where she portrayed multiple roles.
In October 2020, the actress denied rumors that she will be playing the superhero role, dismissing it "like a press release that’s gotten out of hand.” However, in December 2020, Marvel confirmed that Tatiana will be portraying 'She-Hulk' in the Disney plus series.
Mark Ruffalo is confirmed to reprise his role as Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. Ruffalo's latest appearance was in the 2019 'Avengers: Endgame'.
Ruffalo will not be the only one returning. Tim Roth, who played Abomination in 2008 'The Incredible Hulk' starring Edward Norton, will also be reprising his role.
Some of the latest cast additions include Ginger Gonzaga as Jennifer Walters’ best friend.
Renée Elise Goldsberry is also on the cast list as Amelia. Her character is rumored to be Amelia Voght, an agent for SWORD in the comics who has several battles with She-Hulk. The SWORD organization had its onscreen debut on 'WandaVision.'
The series is currently eyeing a 2022 release date, which means that the official trailer will likely release at least by late 2021 or 2022. We will continue to update this space once we get new information about the show. Feel free to check back on this article from time to time.
