She-Hulk: Attorney at Law concept artist Constantine Sekeris estimates the age of the Hulk’s son, Skaar, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Concept artist Constantine Sekeris just put an approximate age on Bruce Banner’s son Skaar during his brief cameo in the Disney+ series.
Sekeris pegged Skaar at between 17 and 18 years old in a recent Instagram post. The post also includes one of the artist’s early Skaar designs, which differs from how the character appeared in the She-Hulk finale, “Whose Show Is This?” in several ways. Notably, Skaar’s torso is more exposed in Sekeris’ artwork and includes armor on one shoulder and a sword hilt jutting out from behind the other. The Sakaaran’s likeness also seems to be modeled after Bruce Banner/Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo, and not the performer who would ultimately play the role, Wil Deusner.
Sekeris previously shared an even more radically different Skaar design which bares even less resemblance to how Bruce Banner’s son is portrayed in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. This version of Skaar leans even more heavily into the sword-and-sandal aspect of Sakaaran culture, resulting in a distinctly savage vibe. Skaar’s hairstyle is especially noteworthy, as it resembles the flowing locks sported by Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1982’s Conan Barbarian. Sekeris’ more barbaric take on Skaar also boasts a more muted color palette than his other design or Skaar’s finished look, further reinforcing its primal feel.
She-Hulk’s Contentious Concept Art
Skaar wasn’t the only character in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law to go through a raft of design changes, either. AI-powered machine KEVIN underwent several revisions, although all of them included a nod to the baseball cap worn by KEVIN’s real-life inspiration, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. She-Hulk creator and head writer Jessica Gao recalled Feige’s opposition to this creative choice in a recent interview, as he believed it made no sense. The pair eventually compromised on the issue, resulting in the KEVIN design seen in “Whose Show Is This?” which evokes Feige’s baseball cap without directly recreating it.
There were also heroes and villains designed for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law who never made it into the series. Concept artist Wes Burt recently showcased his artwork of one such character, Bushwhacker, as part of a highlight reel video posted on Instagram. Burt’s version of Bushwhacker appears broadly in line with comic book creators Ann Nocenti and Rick Leonardi’s conception of the character, with both sharing the same cybernetic gun arms and hairstyle.
All nine episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are currently streaming on Disney +.
