Marvel's She-Hulk release date may have been leaked by Disney

The release date for Marvel Studios' She-Hulk has been leaked online – by none other than Disney itself.

As first spotted by Murphy's Multiverse on Saturday, May 14, Disney's UK website appeared to confirm that the MCU TV show would arrive on August 17. The possible launch date was listed under the Marvel on Disney Plus section of the webpage, with She-Hulk seemingly set to land on Disney Plus this summer (or winter for those of you who reside in the southern hemisphere).

Any reference to She-Hulk has been scrubbed from the website since its release date leaked. However, TechRadar was able to verify that the show's likely launch date and TV show summary was listed as recently as Saturday evening. Check out our screenshot below for confirmation of this fact:

She-Hulk is one of four Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) shows due to launch on Disney Plus in 2022, with Moon Knight leading the charge following its March 30 arrival. Ms Marvel will be the next TV series to debut on Disney's streaming service on June 8. Meanwhile, Secret Invasion and She-Hulk are yet to receive official release dates – or, rather, that was the case until this apparent faux pas on Disney UK's part.

It's unclear if this leak provides official confirmation on She-Hulk's Disney Plus release – we'll get onto why it may not do so in a moment. But it's the first time that we've seen or heard anything significant about the Marvel Phase 4 project's arrival. And, given that August 17 falls on a Wednesday – i.e. the day that new Marvel TV shows launch on Disney Plus – it appears that there's a certain degree of truth in this leak.

We've reached out to Disney for comment and we'll update this article if we receive a response.


Analysis: will She-Hulk smash her way onto Disney Plus in August?

It seems so, but there are a couple of factors that might disprove the validity of this leak.

Despite She-Hulk's release date leak coming from Disney itself, though, there's every chance that an August launch won't actually happen.

For one, the Marvel section of Disney's UK website hasn't been updated to reflect the releases of Shang-Chi or Moon Knight. Both MCU projects are available to stream on Disney Plus, but neither are listed alongside Loki, Eternals, and other Phase 4 productions on that specific page. If that duo have accidentally been left off the list, there's a possibility that She-Hulk's release date has added incorrectly.

Then there's the prospect that She-Hulk's leaked launch date is simply a placeholder. Maybe an August arrival was tentatively pencilled in by Marvel Studios and Disney, but the show's release has since been pushed back. There have been rumors that She-Hulk is suffering from numerous development issues, including production pipeline problems relating to a VFX backlog, which reportedly led to a revised She-Hulk release date of late 2022 or even January 2023.

However, the fact that Disney has removed any reference to She-Hulk from the website is a clear indication that there's some truth to its August launch date. Ordinarily, Disney and Marvel don't reveal Marvel movie or TV show release dates until they're ready. The leaking of She-Hulk's release date via an official Disney channel, plus its subsequent removal from the Disney UK website, then, makes this a two-fold error that only fuels the fire about an August release date.

An August launch seems like a perfect fit for She-Hulk, too. Ms Marvel's Disney Plus show will have ended by that point, while Thor: Love and Thunder will have been out in theaters worldwide for over a month by mid-August. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the only other MCU project with a confirmed release date for 2022, so we'll need a new Marvel series to tide us over until Black Panther 2's November launch.

Finally, Brazilian news outlet Chippu has previously suggested that She-Hulk will launch in August (thanks to Reddit for the catch). Ordinarily, we'd take such speculation with a pinch of salt. Chippu, though, apparently has good contacts within Marvel Studios' ranks about release date reveals and the like. The South American website was the first to confirm that Thor 4's trailer would officially arrive on April 18, which it subsequently did.

Our guess? Given Disney removed She-Hulk's entire entry from its UK website, plus Chippu's claim about an August launch, we think there's enough evidence to suggest that the Tatiana Maslany-starring series will arrive in three months time. Unless Disney and Marvel decide that it needs a longer development cycle, we'd be surprised if She-Hulk doesn't smash her way onto Disney Plus before September rolls around.

Twitter has hidden the chronological feed on iOS again – and I'm furious

In a controversial move, Twitter has brought back a feature that removes the 'Latest Tweets' view for users on iOS, which is something that many users, including me, hated back in March 2022 – and it's now rolling out. The first time the company decided to do this, 'Home' would appear first in a tab at the top, and there was no way of changing it so that 'Latest Tweets' would be the default view. It was reverted back after the company said it was a 'bug' for iOS users. This time though, it's no bug. Instead, it's 'For You' and 'Following' where you can only swipe between them now, which doesn't make much sense for a platform where you're using the platform to keep up to date with who you follow. It's a bizarre change that makes me ask – who wants this, especially during a time when its new owner, Elon Musk, is bringing in and reversing changes almost every week still? This one change will have big consequenc

Port of Lisbon hit by ransomware attack

One of Europe’s busiest seaports, the Port of Lisbon, has been hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some of its digital systems offline. "All safety protocols and response measures provided for this type of occurrence were quickly activated, the situation being monitored by the National Cybersecurity Center and the Judicial Police," a statement shared by the Port of Lisbon Administration (APL) with local media earlier this week said. The incident failed to impact the port’s operations, but did take its official website, portodelisboa.pt, offline. LockBit taking responsibility "The Port of Lisbon Administration is working permanently and closely with all competent entities in order to guarantee the security of the systems and respective data," the statement concludes. While the company doesn’t explicitly say it was targeted with ransomware, the LockBit ransomware operator has added APL to its leaks website, taking responsibility for the hit.  The databas

This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptominers and DDoS bots

Cybersecurity researchers have spotted a new Linux malware downloader that targets poorly defended Linux servers with cryptocurrency miners and DDoS IRC bots. Researchers from ASEC discovered the attack after the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) used to create the downloader was uploaded to VirusTotal. Apparently, Korean users were the ones uploading the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are targets, as well. Further analysis has shown that the threat actors are going after poorly defended Linux servers, brute-forcing their way into administrator accounts over SSH.  Mining Monero Once they make their way in, they’ll either install a cryptocurrency miner, or a DDoS IRC bot. The miner being deployed is XMRig, arguably the most popular cryptocurrency miner among hackers. It uses the computing power of a victim's endpoints to generate Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency whose transactions are seemingly impossible to track, and whose users are allegedly impossible to identify.

Code-generating tools could be more of a security hindrance than help

New research by a group of Stanford-affiliated researchers has uncovered that code-generating AI tools such as Github Copilot can present more security risks than many users may realize. The study looked specifically at Codex, a product of OpenAI, of which Elon Musk is among the co-founders.  Codex powers the Microsoft-owned GitHub Copilot platform, which is designed to make coding easier and more accessible by translating natural language into code and suggesting changes based on contextual evidence. AI-coding problems Lead co-author of the study, Neil Perry, explains that “code-generating systems are currently not a replacement for human developers”. The study asked 47 developers of differing abilities to use Codex for security-related problems, using Python, JavaScript and C programming languages. It concluded that the participants who relied on Codex were more likely to write insecure code compared with a control group. Read more > These are the best laptops for progr
