Make It So: Disney+ Lady Sif

Make It So: Disney+ Lady Sif by Jerry Whitworth

As the world continues to shelter in place due to the global pandemic, entertainment has continued to be the primary escape from the harsh reality of the present situation. Streaming services such as Disney+ have had some of the greatest impact in this regard even as that same pandemic has delayed projects in development at the provider. As such, the two mystery series being produced as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the service remains yet known by the public. Recent rumors have one of these projects to be Agents of S.W.O.R.D. which allegedly will continue the adventures of Quake/Daisy Johnson (portrayed by Chloe Bennet) where NerdfectStrangers.com has speculated on Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Invaders, and Ironheart. Another viable candidate for one of the mystery series could be Lady Sif.

What Could Have Been: Rebirth of the Incredible Hulk

What Could Have Been: Rebirth of the Incredible Hulk by Jerry Whitworth

With 1990’s The Death of the Incredible Hulk, television’s Incredible Hulk featuring Bill Bixby as Dr. David Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk was, effectively, dead. While the film’s title alludes to this as being the desired effect, the truth was that a sequel essentially starting off a new series of television films was planned immediately afterward beginning with “Revenge of the Incredible Hulk.” Therein, Dr. Banner was revived and cured of his condition only to be forced to make gamma creatures. Banner would have been forced to repeat the experiment that turned him into the Hulk but Ferrigno claimed he would have retained his scientist mind after his transformations. Sadly, the ratings for Death were so bad, the sequel was shelved. A spin-off in She-Hulk was also planned to the degree filming had begun with former Baywatch star Mitzi Kapture as Jennifer Walters and volleyball player Gabrielle Reece as her green alter ego. Bixby returned as Dr. Banner who was forced to transfuse his blood to a dying Walters to save her life while afflicting her with the same gamma condition he suffered from throughout his television run. Studio executives, however, weren’t confident in Kapture’s star power and abandoned the project (leaving Kapture to become a star instead in the series Silk Stalkings). A She-Hulk film starring Brigitte Nielsen as the titular character was later put into development only to also be dropped. In the wake of the cancellations, Bixby managed to secure Fox (who had already picked up Marvel’s Power Pack pilot dropped by NBC) to produce another television film only for the star to then sadly die from prostate cancer in 1993. But, what could have a new Hulk television film meant for the future of that brand?
