We all know the Hulk all too well and now it’s time for us to acquaint ourselves with the She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters (played by Tatiana Maslany), who promises to add some zest to the super strong green hero with her wit and humour.
Mark Ruffalo, who plays the OG Hulk, shared a new trailer for the upcoming Marvel series on Sunday, captioned, “Family is family. Get ready for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, an original Marvel Studios series, streaming August 17 on Disney Plus!”
The clip starts off with Bruce Banner (Ruffalo) waking up his cousin (Maslany) to train her to control and hone her newly acquired powers. She became the female Hulk after Banner provided her with a blood transfusion when she suffered a major injury and along with that, came his powers. The trailer makes it a point to slip in funny moments right off the bat.
According to Variety, the cast and crew in attendance at Marvel Studio’s Comic-Con panel billed the series as Marvel’s first half-hour TV comedy. “This is so overwhelming. What’s so exciting about She-Hulk is this show is very different. It’s irreverent humour. She-Hulk is trying not to be a superhero,” said Maslany.
The trailer also showed that her law firm launches a new division for “superhumans” and appoints Walters in charge of it. There is an entry of older MCU characters such as Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Benedict Wong as Sorcerer Supreme Wong and Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky, Hulk’s frequent enemy the Abomination, who ends up being one of her primary clients. Other cast members include Jameela Jamil as Titania, She-Hulk’s rival.
Written by Jessica Gao, the series will follow Walters as she tries to navigate her professional life after the huge shift becoming a green superhero brings to her life. Gao also executive produced the series alongside Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum and Kat Coiro.
The show is the third Marvel Studios series to release this year, following Moon Knight in March and Ms Marvel in June.
