Hold the phones everybody, there’s a new She-Hulk title just been announced. Brian Truitt, the only man I’d consider for the screen role of Awesome Andy, has the announcement at USA Today: Charles Soule and Javier Pulido will be the creative team for an ongoing series featuring Jennifer Walters.
So if you’ve calmed down and stopped jumping in glee, the announcement explains that the series will return to the tested and true formula mixing the character’s hulking superhero life with her job as a lawyer, working in New York. This also looks like a return to Dan Slott’s style of writing, with numerous guest-stars and short, sweet story arcs of two-three issues each. There’ll be a main narrative threading through everything, but mostly this’ll be self-contained short stories.
The interview obviously has the full discussion with both the creative team and editor Jeanine Schaefer – but here’s an extract from Soule, for you to read before recommencing jumping up and down with glee:
…one of the things I want to work hard to do in this new series is treat her as a real person. She absolutely has problems, just like most of the heroes of the Marvel U, but she chooses to approach them with optimism and good spirit rather than surrendering to the grim and gritty.
