Marvel’s Avengers’ first hero in 2022 will be She-Hulk, leaks say
Marvel’s Avengers has confirmed that it will be producing 2022 content after Spider-Man and the Wakandan Raid in 2021, and that includes new heroes and villains.
Now we start to wonder who exactly will be the next hero (who all platforms that have access) will be, and all signs point to She-Hulk.
There are a few sources here for this. There is a sprawling article on reddit detailing a massive amount of alleged Avengers leaks. But the only multi-source is for She-Hulk, so that’s what I’m focusing on, and the idea is that she’ll get a Kate Bishop / Hawkeye size extension in 2022 when she arrives.
This was supported by Xbox Podcaster Tasteless Ghost, who says they heard She-Hulk was from their own source. They didn’t reveal this source to me when I asked them (understandably!) But it’s another data point that lines up with this last one.
She-Hulk has been on the Avengers files somehow for a very long time now, and has long been a rumored hero on the next role with even vocal lines buried in the game about Jennifer Walters. So yes, it seems very, very likely that in the face of all of these other additional leaks, at the very least, She-Hulk is likely to be the next hero to come in 2022.
I guess I am a a little surprised that we immediately get another melee-focused hero after Black Panther, but that’s okay with me. She seems unlikely to be a Hulk clone, and even when the game Is make clones, ie. Kate and Hawkeye, they’re usually different enough that they’re worth using both. The most important escape has notes on its potential moves, like dragging enemies’ heads across the ground, creating shockwaves, or pinning enemies in place and smashing them. No word on his ranged attack, whether it will be like the Hulk pulling concrete chunks from the ground or not.
She-Hulk is also set to have a moment in the bigger MCU in 2022, as that’s when the Disney Plus series starring Tatiana Malsany is supposed to arrive. Avengers don’t typically line up their outings with the MCU, although they’ve started doing a lot more MCU crossovers with skins from that universe, so I wouldn’t be shocked to see a She-Hulk Disney Plus skin based on it. ‘iteration of Malsany, when that show gets here.
I’m all for more Avengers content in any form, and it looks like they’ve gotten the go-ahead for at least part of 2022. As for other rumors about future heroes and villains, I’ll continue to study these, but for now, She-Hulk seems like a pretty safe bet. But before that, Spider-Man and a new raid.
