Disney Plus and Marvel Studios have released the first official trailer and poster for the upcoming She-Hulk: Lawyer series and, as expected, the MCU is leaning on both Shulkie’s (aka Jennifer Walters, Esq.) legal expertise and her ability to, well, Hulk.
The series will stream exclusively on Disney Plus beginning August 17 and stars Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters who, according to Disney’s press release, is “an attorney who specializes in criminal-oriented legal cases.” superhumans.” This description, not to mention the art and the search for promotional materials, are a huge indication that the upcoming series will rely heavily on top spider man author Dan Slott’s acclaimed run on the comic book title She-Hulk. Slott’s story featured multiple incidents of Walters/She-Hulk portraying characters throughout the Marvelverse, including none other than Spider-Man, who ultimately faced J. Jonah Jameson in a court of law during the run.
In the trailer, lawyer Walters is approached by higher-ups at her firm to head a new superhero division. We then get to see Jen as she teams up with her cousin Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk, to learn how to take out the Hulk and smash. Or maybe not. The trailer seems to show that a lot of the series will be about Jen learning to deal with her not-so-angry alter ego of hers and of course the friends she meets along the way. Or clients, Or, the abomination? Tim Roth is back, as is his gamma-irradiated alter ego, last seen in shang chi. It’s pretty well confined in the trailer, but don’t count on it staying that way for long.
