She-Hulk is the first sitcom in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and like many Marvel sitcoms and projects, it contains post-credits scenes and tiny jokes and references for superfans. So since we saw the first three episodes, we decided to put all of these nuggets of wisdom into one big document. Just like how Pug had this wonderful gift basket for She-Hulk and Nikki.
Consider this the great bible of She-Hulk secrets. Of course, though, you should probably watch She-Hulk online before going through all that. Since what follows is full of spoilers, it would probably be best if your index confirmed what you saw. Much like how our list of upcoming Marvel movies and shows is a bible for determining release dates.
Oh and once you’re done here, check out our She-Hulk review to see why we love the show so much.
She-Hulk Post-Credit Scenes: About Steve Rogers
She-Hulk episode 1 post-credits scene: In their hand-built bar at Banner’s Mexico retreat, She-Hulk pursues his theory that Steve Rogers never had sex. Remembering the line on America’s “bum” she even shouts “That a** didn’t deserve to die a virgin!”
That’s enough to crack Bruce up, as he explains that Rogers lost his virginity in 1943 while on a USO tour. This leads to She-Hulk revealing that she pretended to be particularly drunk, before exuberantly proclaiming “Captain America Fu—”, the scene fading to black before she finished her profanity.
She-Hulk episode 2 post-credits scene: Back at the Walters house, my dear old dad (Mark Linn Baker) needs help moving things around the house. Jen complies while Ched explains that he doesn’t understand 4K.
She-Hulk episode 3 post-credits scene: Yes, it wasn’t Runa, Dennis of Asgard’s catfish. During a contract signing, we see that Megan Thee Stallion herself is She-Hulk’s new client. And it looks like Jen will go way too far for her.
She-Hulk Easter Eggs Explained
Since She-Hulk ties together so many disparate MCU moments, it’s filled with plenty of little references and nods to other Marvel movies, shows, and comic book characters. Here’s everything we found.
She-Hulk Episode 1 Easter Eggs and References:
- Yes, it’s a class 8 courier ship from Sakaaran that leads to Bruce and Jen’s car crash. Does this mean we could see Sakaar’s most famous man, the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), who brought Hulk and Thor back together (albeit to fight in the contest of the champ)? It’s unclear.
- Yes, at Banner’s secret hideout in Mexico, it was an Iron Man helmet with an unexplained bullet hole – at least in the MCU – that smashed a hole in it.
She-Hulk Episode 2 Easter Eggs and References:
- When Jen pokes fun at the kind of people who become superheroes, talking about “billionaires” (Tony Stark), “narcissists” (also Tony Stark) and “adult orphans”, she sort of goes from the MCU to the DC world – because that third one is Bruce Wayne to a T.
- Jen’s questions as she wonders if the Avengers provide health care, maternity leave, pension, and salary aren’t just a natural set of considerations. It’s also a reminder of the money troubles we learned about when Sam Wilson and his family were going through hard times in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
- Surfing the web when she’s supposed to be looking for a job, Jen browses a page full of Easter eggs. Not only do the categories on this page include “Find Ant-Man”, “Avengers”, and “Norse Mythology”, but the sidebar includes an advertisement for Iron Man Threes sneakers and the title “Man Fights With Metal Claws In Bar Brawl”. . The latter sounds like a Wolverine reference and the final nod to the imminent arrival of the X-Men (last hint in the Ms. Marvel post-credits scene).
- Also on this page, we see a sidebar title that reads “Why is there a giant statue of a man sticking out of the ocean?” This is most likely a reference to the Eternals, as that film ended with a – literally – giant form of the Celestial known as Tiamut the Communicator emerging from the ocean. It’s one of two MCU timeline markers, we’ll move on to the next one below.
- As She-Hulk enters the offices of GLK&H, we see a wall of framed Marvel comics in one of the lawyers’ office, further proving that there are comics of the MCU characters inside the MCU. Hulk, Captain America and Thanos are among the covers.
- When Jen calls Bruce to talk about Blonsky, Smart Hulk answers and ultimately reminds us of the Incredible Hulk movie that no one ever talks about – where Tim Roth debuted as the Abomination. Specifically, he says “that fight was so many years ago that I’m a completely different person now, literally,” referring to the fact that Edward Norton was playing Bruce Banner at the time.
- The footage of Wong and Abomination fighting, shown to prove that Blonsky “escaped” from DODC SuperMax prison, is from when we last saw Abomination, in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
She-Hulk Episode 3 Easter Eggs:
- Fans familiar with She-Hulk’s past know that Mallory Book, one of Ms. Walters’ new co-workers, is one of She-Hulk’s enemies.
- When Wong tries to figure out how to handle Blonsky’s lawsuit, he makes a passing reference to Spider-Man: No Way Home when he says he’s “not going to erase everybody’s memory again”. Not that Jen would remember the first time.
- The group of thugs with gear with powers that attack She-Hulk includes a guy nicknamed Thunderball. This means that this group may be The Wrecking Crew, a group of wondrous D-list villains who derive their powers from magical construction equipment.
She-Hulk’s MCU Timeline Location Deciphered
Interestingly enough, She-Hulk takes place at not one but three different points in the MCU timeline (which we listed in our guide on how to watch the Marvel movies in order).
We can say that the show takes place following Shang-Chi, based on the footage of Wong and Abomination. Then the reference to Tiamut places episode 2 as after Eternals (which is after Shang-Chi).
Finally, episode 3 sees Wong mentioning that he is erasing everyone’s memory again. And since Wong doesn’t remember Dr. Strange using the Kof-Kol runes after the full moon party at Kamar-Toj, he’s probably referring to Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is set around the End of Eternals.
That said, if She-Hulk continues at this pace, we expect it to expand beyond Hawkeye, through Moon Knight, and into Thor: Love and Thunder. Heck, if the laws of the ocean come into play, we might hear about Prince Namor the Submariner, who arrives in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
