Tim Roths Abomination is battling Benedict Wong's Sorcerer Supreme in an illegal competition in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, according to fans. However, Jessica Gao, the writer and creator of She-Hulks, has actually pitched the return of the Abomination.
Gao revealed that her intention for the upcoming superhero legal drama was always to have the Abomination at the center. That's what Gao wanted right from the start, and it resulted in the Abominations' surprising MCU comeback.
"So Abomination, Emil Blonsky was in my original pitch, and at that time, the last time we saw him was in 2008, The Incredible Hulk." "I don't get the job." Look, I have not gotten the job so many times at Marvel like it was old hat to me. I was like Daredevil. I was the woman with no fear now."
"It was so abomination," says Emil Blonsky. At that time, the last time we saw him was in 2008, The Incredible Hulk. I don't know if they had any plans, but it was a story I wanted to tell so I just put it in there. What's the worst that could happen? I don't get the job."
Gao desired Abomination on her show, but she didnt know how Marvel Studios would reintroduce the character. The idea of putting the former villain in Shang-Chi came from the MCUs producer Kevin Feige, who thought it was better to reintroduce the Abomination before he appeared in the series.
"We really liked, we were putting this whole story together for him because everything in Marvel is connected. That's why he was placed in Shang-Chi because he was in our program," says the author.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will launch on Disney+ with its first episode tomorrow, August 18. After that, more episodes will be available on Disney+ every Thursday.
