Starring Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, an original series, will premiere exclusively on a weekly basis on Disney Plus on August 17, after the release of Ms Marvel, another original series, airing weekly on Disney Plus on June 8 and Thor: Love and Thunder, an original movie, releasing exclusively in cinemas on July 8.
She-Hulk tells the story of Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered Hulk. The nine-episode series welcomes a host of MCU vets, including Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination and Benedict Wong as Wong (last seen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness). Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry will also appear.
Also rumoured to appear are Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, who stunned fans when he appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, reprising his character from Marvel’s Netflix series, Daredevil. As a blind lawyer, Matt Murdock/Daredevil is the perfect character to round out the all-star cast. He is also rumoured to appear alongside Kingpin (portrayed by Vincent D’Onofrio) in Marvel Studios’ Echo, a spin-off of Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye, which was released around the same time as Spider-Man: No Way Home smashed box office records and the multiverse at the same time.
In the She-Hulk trailer, Jennifer Walters appears to be at a difficult time in her life. A law firm attempts to recruit her to join their legal service, specifically one for prosecuting villains committing super crimes. Jennifer’s legal skills make her a prime candidate for the firm, but she isn’t quite certain if that’s the kind of force for justice that she wants to be. Eventually, she meets up with Bruce (Mark Ruffalo), which leads to an experiment, resulting in Jennifer’s new ability to transform into a hulking. In addition to Bruce and Jennifer and their green Hulk forms, the trailer also features a handful of glimpses of longtime Hulk foe Abomination (Tim Roth), pointing to how the series will find ways to connect to the larger MCU, unlike Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight, which had no appearances from anyone previously connected in the MCU, being the first Marvel Studios’ Disney Plus series to do so.
The only other Marvel Studios Disney Plus series to have nine episodes aside from She-Hulk is WandaVision, which is arguably one of the most popular and famous of the Disney Plus series, despite Feige declaring that Loki is the most watched Marvel Studios’ Disney Plus series of all. Regardless of popularity, it is quality that matters most and it certainly appears as though She-Hulk is going to be a success.
