Despite telling stories in theaters and on streaming, Marvel Studios is very much taking its time revealing what Phase 4 and beyond will be about. While the prevailing theory is that Kang the Conqueror will be the MCU's new Thanos, some fans have expressed concerns that all these different projects currently feel a tad directionless.
The movies and TV shows are starting to link up, though, and the latest episode of Ms. Marvel featured a noteworthy nod to She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
There's been a lot of speculation about what the prison spotted in that show's trailer might be, and it turns out that the location isn't one from the comic books. Instead, Marvel Studios had created the Department of Damage Control Supermax Prison, further solidifying the one-time cleanup crew as a formidable force in the MCU.
Spider-Man: No Way Home established the organization as a police force of sorts, and we've seen them go from hunting Peter Parker to taking aim at Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel. We don't know who else is being kept here, but they do have Abomination locked up, and we'd bet on the D.O.D.C. having gained power during The Blip (similar to what happened with S.W.O.R.D.).
It wouldn't remotely surprise us if Valentina Allegra de Fontaine is pulling the strings here and we could quite easily be looking at the eventual base for the Thunderbolts.
The ClanDestine made short work of the guards and escaped with ease, so we're not sure how Emil Blonsky hasn't already broken out! Of course, many fans believe Abomination will have reformed by the time She-Hulk rolls around, moving on from the villainous ways we saw in The Incredible Hulk.
