She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is charting new territory as the MCU’s first half-hour comedy series — but some things never change. Like every Marvel project that’s come before, the new Disney+ show She-Hulk doesn’t end when the credits start rolling, treating fans with some enigmatic post-credits scenes.
The first three episodes that have been released (so far) introduce fans to Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), the cousin of Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) who suddenly becomes She-Hulk after a car accident causes some of Bruce’s blood to get into her system.
All Jen wants to do is get back to her job as an attorney, maybe go on some not-so-terrible dates, and spend time with her friends, but now her formerly quiet life has irrevocably changed since the world sees her as a superhero. As she becomes the head of a new superhuman law division at work, she tries to balance her new She-Hulk status with keeping her life as normal as possible.
Head writer Jessica Gao tells EW that fans can expect to get a post-credits scene in almost every episode of She-Hulk. “I think there’s only one or two episodes that don’t but nearly every episode has an end-credits scene,” she says. “It’s just a result of the fact that we’re all comedy writers. If you give us a chance to do an extra joke, we’re going to make an extra joke.”
Director and executive producer Kat Coiro reveals that while some of the post-credits scenes on She-Hulk were scripted, some were actually improvised on set. “So many of them came organically, and from watching the actors interact with each other,” says Coiro. “Part of comedy is allowing actors to play and leaving room for improvisation, which can be really hard when you’re dealing with such a technically heavy show, so any opportunity we saw to let people play and go off book, we would grab it. What’s cool about Marvel is there’s so much exploration and a lot of that happens on set and in post-[production]. It was a constantly evolving process.”
Below, EW rounds up every post-credits scene (so far) and explains what they mean.
Episode 1: Captain America f—s!
Gao created She-Hulk: Attorney at Law with the goal of making it Marvel’s horniest show yet, and that couldn’t have been more clear from the very first scene in the series premiere when Jen is grilling Bruce about whether or not Captain America (Chris Evans) died a virgin. It becomes a running gag all throughout the episode, as Jen is fixated on her theory that he didn’t have sex before he died (she even has a detailed timeline of evidence she’s collected through her own research). It was a funny joke, but the show really commits to the bit in the first post-credits scene of the season.
The hilarious scene begins in Bruce’s home bar that he built with Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) in his Mexican hideout, and Jen is drunkenly ranting (once again) about how Cap didn’t deserve to die a virgin — especially with “that ass.” An annoyed Bruce decides to put an end to her rambling by disclosing a shocking piece of information he’s been sitting on for years: “Steve Rogers is not a virgin. He lost his virginity to a girl in 1943 on the USO tour.” Of course, Jen then reveals she was faking being drunk to manipulate Bruce into telling her the truth, and now it’s too late for him to take it back. She loudly cheers, “Captain America f—s !” as the scene abruptly cuts out.
Not only is this story now officially cemented forever in the MCU, it turns out that it came straight from Marvel’s mastermind himself.
“We didn’t set out thinking that we were going to be able to answer it,” Gao says. “It used to just be a running joke, that it’s going to be a lifelong obsession for Jen, that this is the one thing that keeps her awake at night. It actually used to be in the show a lot more, where in every episode there would be some little reminder, like you’d see that her search history was this, and she was always in asides talking to other characters where everybody’s reaction was like, ‘She’s talking about this again.’ It was actually Kevin Feige who said, ‘I know the answer. I can tell you. We can do the answer. And I was like, ‘You have the answer, and we can tell everyone?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah.’ So this is Marvel canon. This is straight from Kevin Feige.”
While Feige gave his blessing for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law to disclose this very personal piece of Cap’s sexual history to the world, it turns out that no one warned Evans. “I laughed my ass off,” Ruffalo says. “I’m like, ‘Does someone need to talk to Captain America about this?’ I haven’t. I was afraid he was going to have it cut. Too late now, buddy. The cat’s out of the bag.”
Evans ended up tweeting about the scene the day the premiere came out, but all he posted was a bunch of crying/laughing emojis and one zipped-lips emoji.
Episode 2: The best handywoman in the MCU
Jen may not want to use her She-Hulk powers to become an Avenger and save the world, but she’s not above using her new strength and abilities to help out her family. Earlier in episode 2, she visits her parents for family dinner, and the post-credits scene sees her returning to help out with some chores around their house.
First, she lifts up their car while her cousin Ched (Nicholas Cirillo) fumbles around with changing out a tire.
Then she mounts their new flatscreen TV while Ched — who works at Best Buy — doesn’t lift a finger to help. “I could’ve done that,” he says while watching and eating pie. Finally, she carries six giant water jugs into the house in one trip. Telling her dad that while she’s glad he’s staying hydrated, “this seems a little excessive.”
This end-credits scene is pretty self-explanatory. If someone in your life suddenly gained super strength, wouldn’t you ask them to help you out with some strenuous household chores?!
Episode 3: Marvel’s newest iconic ass
summer court is in session! The third episode featured a wacky side story where Jen’s obnoxious former coworker Dennis (Drew Matthews) hires her new firm to sue his “Tinder Swindler” ex-girlfriend, because he thought she was Megan Thee Stallion — but she was really just an Asgardian shapeshifter pretending to be the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper to defraud him out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Jen wins the trial by proving that Dennis is so delusional that he would actually think he’s dating the real Megan Thee Stallion … and then the camera pans over to reveal the real Megan Thee Stallion was in the courtroom, watching the entire thing. “That’s right, there’s only one Megan Thee Stallion! Ah!” she says.
“We found out that Megan loves Marvel and superhero stuff, so it was incredible,” Gao says of getting Megan to film her cameo. “It really came together very quickly, and we didn’t even have time to stop and just stand in awe at the fact that this was actually happening. It was everyone’s dream come true, especially Tatiana.”
The She-Hulk team was able to get the rapper to film the ah!-mazing cameo thanks to cast member Jameela Jamil’s connection to her.
And so they took full advantage of that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the post-credits scene as well. Back in Jen’s office, Megan signs a contract to become her new client, and the two women celebrate appropriately by dancing to “Body” together — with Jen twerking in her She-Hulk form. Bet you never thought you’d see that in the MCU!
“I think it was one of Tatiana’s happiest days of her life,” Gao says with a laugh. “I really hope that they release the dailies of that footage, because they danced for so long. I hope they just release all of it unedited, uncut, so that you can see the pure joy.”
“I was just trying not to cry, I was so excited,” Maslany says about getting to twerk with Megan. “But I’ve been prepping my whole life. I’ve been watching Megan’s videos since she came out, and seeing her on stage, and I’d done my hours.”
Captain America isn’t the only one with an iconic Marvel ass anymore.
Episode 4: This Is … Wong and Madisynn
Marvel’s newest iconic duo isn’t some superhero pairing — it’s Wong (Benedict Wong) and Madisynn (Patty Guggenheim)!
After getting sent to an alternate dimension full of goblins during a magic show gone awry, a perpetually tipsy Madisynn ends up becoming BFFs with Sorcerer Supreme Wong (while also spoiling his current binge watch of The Sopranos) by helping testify against an amateur magician who’s been using magic portals to disastrous degrees in episode 4. The new best friend pairing returns in the post-credits scene, as Wong and Madisynn watch This Is Us together while making plans to get bottomless brunch and talking about all their favorite alcoholic drinks — and it turns out that entire scene was completely made up during filming by the actors.
“With Wong and Madisynn, that was another instance that wasn’t scripted, but we had a half an hour at the end of the day,” Coiro tells EW. “And so we set them on a couch and put some cameras on them and they improvised the entire thing.”
Both Wong and Guggenheim were given free rein as to what their end-credits scene would be about.
“They had asked me, ‘Is there something we should talk about [in the scene]?'” Gao tells EW. “And I was like, ‘Just have Madisynn explain to Wong what brunch is,’ and then Patty took that and just ran with it, and after a couple of takes, just did this really funny run where she was just running through all the different drinks with him. It was just so fun being able to pull Wong out of all these high intense, dramatic situations and pairing him with the funniest partner you could possibly pair Wong with; I love Madisynn. Patty Guggenheim is one of the funniest human beings on Earth, and the two of them together truly is comedy magic. My goal now in life is to make a Wong and Madisynn Halloween special.”
But Coiro is hoping for something even bigger and better for Wong and Madisynn after She-Hulk: “Spin-off!” she says with a laugh.
Episode 9: Wong jailbreaks Abomination … again
After four episodes that had no end tags, the season finale didn’t leave us hanging! After the episode 9 credits, one final scene plays where Wong breaks Emil Blonsky a.k.a. Abomination (Tim Roth) out of his jail cell. Blonsky had just gotten pinched for breaking his parole after transforming into Abomination despite being fitted with an inhibitor, all for some paid appearances. Thankfully, Wong doesn’t let him rot in prison — he opens a portal and brings his old cage fight buddy to move in with him at Kamar-Taj. Blonsky’s only concerns? Fridge space and wi-fi. We’ve got ourselves a new potential buddy comedy spin-off to rival Wong and Madisynn!
