The lawyer-by-day, vigilante-by-night angle labored properly for the Marvel character Daredevil within the hit Netflix sequence, so why not She-Hulk?
Maybe Disney can relaunch She-Hulk as a Regulation & Order-type drama, or perhaps even an Ally McBeal comedy. Within the comics, She-Hulk was additionally a member of the Avengers, the Unbelievable 4, the Defenders and S.H.I.E.L.D., so the crossover potential is countless.

The fictional nation of Wakanda in “Black Panther” was guarded by the Dora Milaje, which took inspiration from an actual group.
three. The Dora Milaje
The warrior ladies of Wakanda from Black Panther are fierce and fabulous, so why not give them their very own women-centric spin-off sequence? Black Panther director Ryan Coogler not too long ago commented that he’d be concerned aboutabout them. Even the real-world 19th-century — the all-female army regiment who impressed the Dora Milaje — are getting a TV sequence. It will be attention-grabbing to see how the Dora Milaje got here to be, earlier than Wakanda was revealed to the surface world.

Within the comics, feminine Thor is none apart from Thor’s former love curiosity Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who’s affected by breast most cancers.

This sequence might both deal with her life with different teen mutants on the college, or the superhero she turned later as an grownup.
The Avengers might need felt just like the superhero all-stars of their heyday, however the all-female A-Pressure is even cooler. This lineup consists of Captain Marvel, Dazzler, Medusa, She-Hulk, Singularity, Nico Minoru and a feminine Thor who band collectively to battle evil. That alone seems like the very best sequence ever.
Spider-Gwen in motion.
Peter Parker’s flame Gwen Stacy resides her personal web-slinging adventures as Spider-Gwen in an alternate universe. It will be refreshing to have a Spider-Man sequence with a feminine lead for a change.
