One of the oldest characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to finally get his superhero moment, as reports indicate that William Hurt’s General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross — who first debuted in The Incredible Hulk back in 2008 and also appeared in Civil War, Infinity War, and Endgame — is set to become the Red Hulk in the upcoming She-Hulk series on Disney+.
William Hurt will see his character General Ross transform into the Red Hulk in Marvel Studios’ ‘She-Hulk’ Disney+ series.

At this time, Disney has yet to set a released date for She-Hulk. Additionally, while the lead role has yet to be cast, Rick and Morty’s Jessica Gao will serve as showrunner.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will be the first of the live-action Disney+ series to debut when it airs this August. Then, in the Spring of 2021, WandaVision — which has been described as “part classic sitcom, part Marvel epic” by MCU head Kevin Feige — hits the streamer. Additionally, that same spring, Loki and What If…? will also premiere. Finally, in the Fall of 2021, Hawkeye will debut.
Of the upcoming ten projects MCU’s “Phase 4”, five of them will be housed on Disney+, which now makes the streaming service integral for all fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
