She-Hulk Director Breaks Silence on X-Men and Fantastic Four Easter Eggs
The fifth episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was released on Disney+ this week, and fans were surprised it did exclude a pleasant scene after the initial credits like the previous episodes. While there wasn’t a post-credits scene, there was a tomfoolery gathering of Easter eggs left for fans to spot during the credits themselves, as some concept art. Each episode has shown drawings during the credits, yet one of the images during this past week’s credits showed off Pug’s finished shoe collection, which incorporated some nods to X-Men and Fantastic Four characters.
Pug mentions in the episode that he’s a major sneaker gatherer, and that he goes after shoes based on superheroes (like the Iron Man 3s). A piece of art during the credits depicts Pug showing his sneakers to Nikki, and there are clearly shoes based on Specialist Destruction, The Thing, Cyclops, and other characters that haven’t been seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Anu Valia, the episode’s director, wasn’t able to comment on the Easter eggs during a new meeting with TVLine, saying she wasn’t part of the decision-making process to incorporate the drawing.
“I can’t speak to that [because] all those Easter eggs in that drawing, a ton of other minds has input there, and I didn’t,” Valia said. “So I can’t really speak to that.”
There may be more Fantastic Four and X-Men Easter eggs to come in She-Hulk’s first season. We really do realize that there will be significantly more cameos on the way, including some Marvel characters that haven’t been mentioned in trailers.
“The show is presently most certainly switching into what it looks like when you have negligible, numbskull supervillains and superheroes who are either antagonizing you or should be represented by you,” star Ginger Gonzaga said. “The thing about working in a superhuman law division is we can represent anyone, so we get funny book characters that haven’t entered the Marvel Universe yet, that you haven’t seen in any of the trailers. And you get to see the ineptitude of the ridiculously fun superheroes who have legal difficulty and may or may not listen to their attorneys. I’m really excited so that individuals could see these guest stars that are in the comic books.”
