Meet Rhys Coiro, She-Hulk's Magician Donny Blaze From Episode 4
**Warning – Spoilers ahead for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law**
Marvel Studios knows exactly what it’s doing when it comes to teasing the fandom about the arrival of Ghost Rider in the MCU, which is why new She-Hulk character Donny Blaze may have been too on the nose for heartbroken fans who thought they might get a glimpse of Johnny. Nevertheless, we introduce you to the magician and to the character’s actor Rhys Coiro.
During the red carpet premiere for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, executive producer Jessica Gao confirmed Coiro would be playing magician Donny, who had no connection to Ghost Rider.
Created by Jessica Gao for Disney+ and based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters’ transformation into the green superhero, starring Tatiana Maslany, Mark Ruffalo, Jameela Jamil, Tim Roth, and more.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Episode 4 Recap – Who is Donny Blaze?
Donny Blaze was introduced during the opening moments of Episode 4 as an amateur magician struggling to wow his audience with mediocre tricks.
The magician is then persuaded by his mentor Cornelius P Williams to use a sling ring to tap into the Mystic Arts and make volunteer Madisynn disappear into a demonic dimension.
Episode 4 then follows Wong’s lawsuit against Donny for tampering with the Mystic Arts without being trained, which leads the magician to later open a portal to the demonic dimension that Wong and She-Hulk have to close.
