The season finale of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law increased the likelihood that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would soon see a real Hulk-centric film for the first time since The Incredible Hulk in 2008.

She-Hulk has, among other things, brought back characters and their particular relationships that have been absent from the MCU since The Incredible Hulk in terms of the larger narrative.

Even though Mark Ruffalo took over from Edward Norton in 2012's The Avengers forward, Tim Roth continues to play Emil Blonsky/Abomination and his connections to Bruce Banner.

All of this, along with one specific line in She-Hulk that alludes to the Hulk's off-screen space adventure, all but confirms that a Hulk solo movie from Marvel Studios may be in the works.

The sentence in question follows KEVIN's funny AI MCU parody of Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige's admission that Bruce's backstory would be revealed in the conclusion.

Jen merely responds, "Save it for the movie," to this. The meta Red Hulk remark in She-Hulk episode 8 may be a throwaway statement in reference to fan speculations, but this sentence might also be an indication that Marvel Studios is secretly working on a Hulk movie.

Given that the MCU has only been able to tell the Hulk's story through his involvement in other films since 2008, this would be long overdue.

Since 2008's The Incredible Hulk, when the character last made an appearance in his own film, the Hulk's narrative in the MCU has been told through appearances in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and currently She-Hulk.

The fundamental cause of this is that Universal Studios still holds the character's distribution rights, not Marvel, which is why Marvel does not really control those rights.
