she hulk is coming to an end soon on Disney+. The platform put the penultimate episode online this Thursday and things are FINALLY moving for our heroine (Tatiana Maslany), after two weeks without too much action. Change of atmosphere with the arrival of Daredevil (charlie cox) in the MCU. We had already seen the actor in Spider-Man No Way Home but this is the first time we see him in his new costume.

After the Bull-Man in the previous episode, and the Porcupine, Marvel introduces this time… the Frog-Man. A villain already teased in the trailers but only appearing now. In the comics, Vincent Patilio is a toy designer who turns to crime to make money. In the series, he is a member of a wealthy family who turns into a “superhero” for fun. In both works, he crosses paths with Daredevil…
It is finally here ! After weeks of waiting, Matt Murdock finally arrives in She-Hulk. The blind superhero is played by Charlie Cox, who reprises his role after the Netflix series and a short cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home. And Hell’s Kitcher’s lawyer still wears the same look.
In She-Hulk, Murdock understands that Patilio used kerosene on his costume. The superhero has overdeveloped senses including the sense of smell. His particularly fine hearing and his echolocation system allow him to confront his enemies and even to know their number thanks to the beating of his heart. Simply put, Daredevil is an expert in close combat.
The Sokovia Accords
Matt Murdock briefly discusses the Sokovia Accords, first mentioned in Civil War. If this has never really been exploited in the cinema, we learn from the mouth of the lawyer that they are now revoked. We will not know more for the moment…
The She-Hulk Suit
In the comics, She-Hulk wears a white and purple costume, revealing his imposing build. In episode 8, Jennifer FINALLY pulls out her superheroine outfit, created by Luke of course.
Daredevil’s New Suit
Matt Murdock also got a new suit from the Netflix series. Exit the monochrome outfit, the Disney + version is much more flashy with golden touches, especially on the helmet. So, what do we think?
Did Jennifer just reveal the identity of the series’ big bad? The Red Hulk aka Thaddeus Ross is a Marvel supervillain who fights Bruce because he sees him as a danger. He will even join forces with the Abomination and the Leader to try to stop him… If he is indeed the one hiding behind HulkKing, then the fans were right.
Impossible not to think of Wolverine when you see this image. A little nod to X-Men and mutants in general who have arrived in the MCU, but without ever having been named as such.
It took a video for She-Hulk to turn into a real Hulk. The one who doesn’t have an alter ego like Bruce had so far managed to stay zen, but we discover through this scene that she also has a hell of a character…
