She-Hulk's Smartphone Lockscreen Is One Of The Funniest Marvel Easter Eggs Yet
By LYVIE SCOTT
"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" has carved out a distinctively meta niche in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, complete with enough fourth wall breaks and hero/villain in-jokes to make even the most clued-up Marvel lovers feel seen. It's hard to deny Jennifer Walters' casual obsession with Steve Rogers (a.k.a. Captain America) is one of the best parts of the new Disney+ series.
While the first episode of "She-Hulk" hilariously resolved the lingering question about Steve Rogers’ virginity — a running joke in the MCU — series director Kat Coiro teased that there'd be more to come and she wasn’t kidding! Jen's fascination with Captain America runs deep, and its fascination lives on in the margins of "She-Hulk" — or at least, on She-Hulk's phone.
The lockscreen of Jen’s phone featured a picture of Captain America’s infamous backside. It's hard to say exactly when Jen changed her lockscreen to reflect her special interest — or, more importantly, whether it started as a joke and spiraled into something much deeper later on, but it's still a hilarious nod to one of the best jokes to come out of "She-Hulk."
