She-Hulk's Sense Of Humor Was Heavily Inspired By Fleabag
According to the first full-length trailer, “She-Hulk,” the latest addition to the MCU seems to be wearing its inspirations on its sleeve. While the series takes a bit of influence from the legal comedy "Ally McBeal," the new trailer also features a fair amount of fourth wall breaking, a trend that's become increasingly en vogue with the popularity of "Fleabag."
Jessica Gao, head writer for "She-Hulk," confessed that the team "talked a lot about Fleabag" when developing the series. According to Gao, “What happens in between those movies when these characters just have to live their lives,” was as important to the storyline, so that She-Hulk can focus more on her human side.
Considering She-Hulk has already broken the fourth wall in her solo comics, there is a sort of precedent for it. "I think breaking the fourth wall asks a lot of questions that I hope we get to answer for you in the show," said co-director Anu Valia, teasing “some big surprises” at the San Diego Comic-Con.
