Meet Jennifer Walters, a lawyer... who also happens to be the She-Hulk. Executive producer Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and chief creative officer of Marvel, welcomed star Tatiana Maslany to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during The Walt Disney Company's 2022 Upfront presentation today, as the two shared details about the upcoming series, including the August 17 launch date exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar!
As she navigates the challenging life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green, 6-foot-7-inch superpowered behemoth in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, The nine-episode series stars, among others from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong. Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry round out the cast.
As per the comics, Walters is a lawyer who had an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, after suffering an accident and developing a milder version of the Hulk's ailment. As a result, Walters transforms into a large, powerful, green-hued version of herself. However, unlike Banner, she retains much of her personality, including the majority of her intelligence and emotional control, though she is still vulnerable to outbursts of anger and grows much stronger when enraged, just like the Hulk. Her change is permanent in later seasons, and she frequently breaks the fourth wall for comedic effect and running puns.
All of the footage in the trailer appears to be from a training environment. Which makes sense; if at all possible, someone who has recently acquired Hulk abilities should get a 101 lesson. Is it possible that, because it appears to be all about training, fans will only see these two together in one episode, or will they be spread out across the season? Jennifer, for example, might have Hulk (Ruffalo) practise once a week for a lesson or two. In any case, based on the small amount of footage shown, it appears that seeing Banner and Walters interact will be entertaining.
The series is executive produced by Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kat Coiro, and Jessica Gao and directed by Kat Coiro (Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9) and Anu Valia (Episodes 5, 6, 7), with Jessica Gao as head writer. Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth are co-executive producers.
