During the stream on the official Xbox Twitch channel, guest host Techniq was playing the game with Avengers’ new lead designer Brian Waggoner, who took over the role in January, to show off the addition of Jane Foster: The Mighty Thor in the game’s latest update.
At one point, Techniq seemingly claimed that he knew the person who was performing the voice acting for She-Hulk in the game, which led to Waggoner looking worried.
“You want a funny fact about She-Hulk?” Techniq asked. “I don’t know if I can say this… I’ll just say this.” He then laughed, saying: “I don’t like the face Brian is making, maybe I shouldn’t say it.”
Deciding it was actually okay to say, Techniq continued: “My acting coach is actually the voice of She-Hulk,” causing Waggoner to look nervously off-camera.
“And I won’t say her name because I don’t know if that was public knowledge yet,” Techniq laughed. “I think it is? It was announced?”
“Nope,” Waggoner replied. “Nope. We’ve never announced She-Hulk. We’ve… we don’t announce things… you know.”
“Oh,” Techniq replied. “Then never mind. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but hopefully… hopefully the source will be right.”
Attempting to distance himself from the claim, Waggoner said: “We’re working on our next hero, we haven’t said who it’s going to be yet. There will be a time for that, we’re focused right now on celebrating the work the team did on Jane.”
He added: “When it’s time to talk about who’s next, we’ll talk about who’s next.”
She-Hulk will be the main character in the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which is set to premiere on August 17, so her appearance as the next DLC character in Avengers would be a timely one.
Jane Foster was added to the Marvel’s Avengers roster as part of a free update on June 28.
At the time of her announcement, Crystal Dynamics said: “Our Hero designs are driven first and foremost by their core comic book identities, so, as a fellow wielder of Mjolnir, her suite of abilities will have a lot in common with the Odinson’s, however she will also have elements that are distinctly Jane.”
