According to a new report, Skaar, son of the Hulk, will appear in the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk.
She-Hulk is an upcoming half-hour legal comedy starring Tatiana Maslany as the title character, She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters. Actors joining her on the series include Tim Roth as The Abomination, Jameela Jamil as the super-villain Titania, Mark Ruffalo as Professor Hulk, and Ginger Gonzaga as Jennifer’s best friend.
SKAAR: SON OF HULK HEADED TO MCU
Our friends at The Direct, are reporting that another famous Marvel character from the Hulk pantheon will be making their MCU debut in She-Hulk. Skaar is the son of Hulk and a powerful alien from Sakaar named Caiera. Skaar was born after Sakaar was decimated. Caiera was lost in the chaos, and Hulk was initially unaware of his son’s survival.
Just how Sakaar will factor into the series remains to be seen, as there was no mention of Caiera in Thor: Ragnarok, which loosely adapted the World War Hulk comic.
Skaar first appeared in World War Hulk #5. If this report turns out to be true, and Skaar does debut in the 2022 TV series, Hulk collectors will likely see a decent increase in the value of that key issue.
SHE-HULK MAY FEATURE SKAAR, THE ABOMINATION, THE LEADER & MORE!
No actor was mentioned in the report, and no story details were given. The character traditionally walks the line between vengeful warrior and imperfect hero, much like his father before him.
Whoever is cast will likely need to be powerful, with a commanding presence, unless the MCU version of Skaar is drastically different than his comic book counterpart. Another gamma mutate rumored to appear on the show is The Leader, who would likely be played by Tim Blake Nelson again.
She-Hulk stars Tatiana Maslany, Ginger Gonzaga, Tim Roth, and Mark Ruffalo. Kat Coiro will serve as the head director, with Anu Valia helming some episodes.
