BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Not much has been said about the upcoming Marvel Studios animated series Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. for Disney XD. We know from the announcement at Comic-Con International 2011 that Jeph Loeb and Paul Dini are shepherding the show, which features a group of Hulk,s including the original, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Hulk’s son Skaar and A-Bomb, better known as Rick Jones.
Thanks to an IGN interview with Heroes alum Adrian Pasdar, however, we now also know that Eliza Dushku nabbed the role of She-Hulk — although it doesn’t sound like we’re supposed to know this early in the game. The series doesn’t yet have a premiere date, and Disney XD wouldn’t comment on the casting tidbit.
Pasdar himself isn’t a regular on the upcoming series, but does bring his version of Iron Man over from Ultimate Spider-Man. So, now we now not only know that Dushku plays She-Hulk, but also that Iron Man will have a guest spot or two in the first season. Could this mean that both series take place in the same universe, and that crossovers might be in the future?
