In less than a week, comic book fans will meet the newest superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at She-Hulk: Lawyer.
The Disney+ series will introduce MCU viewers to Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), a formidable attorney who happens to be the cousin of Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). she-hulk will follow the character as she struggles to come to terms with the new Hulk-like powers she receives during a car accident involving both her and her cousin Avenger.
However, while she-hulk will primarily focus on Maslany’s Jennifer, the series will also spotlight Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner again for the first time since 2019 avengers endgame. In fact, it seems that one of Bruce’s previous MCU adventures may be the cause of everything that happens in She-Hulk: Lawyer.
An alien ambush – in anticipation of she-hulknext week premiere IMDb shared a new clip from the series Thursday morning on Twitter. The clip in question, which lasts about a minute, shows Jennifer de Maslany and Bruce de Ruffalo arguing about whether or not Steve Rogers was a virgin before he traveled back in time (superheroes, they’re just like us!), until the couple he is ambushed and driven off the road by an unidentified alien craft.
The clip ends with Jennifer’s car dangerously flipping over and rolling down a nearby hill. But it’s not the scene’s violent conclusion that has Marvel fans talking online. Instead, it’s the alien spaceship that ambushed Bruce and Jennifer that seems to have caught the attention of MCU fans.
In fact, there are some MCU viewers who believe that the boat seen in the last she-hulk The clip may have come from Sakaar.
An unresolved conflict in 2017 Thor: Ragnarökit is revealed that the Hulk ended up living as a beloved gladiator on a junk planet known as Sakaar after the events of 2015.

During his escape from Sakaar, Bruce also steals The Grandmaster’s personal ship, which bears a striking resemblance to the one attacking him and Jennifer in the recent release. she-hulk shorten. The two ships, at a minimum, share the same basic design. Given what happens in Thor: Ragnarökit’s easy to believe that someone on Sakaar has a grudge against Bruce, wishes to bring him back to the planet, or both.
Whatever the possible reason, there is a real possibility that the ship seen in the new she-hulk The clip is from Sakaar. If that ends up being the case, then that means certain principles she-hulk the leaks – meaning the ones that say it will end with Bruce traveling back to Sakaar – may be more accurate than fans had previously assumed. That, in turn, would suggest that she-hulk you can set the world war hulk adaptation that Marvel is rumored to be secretly developing.
the Reverse Analysis – Chances are fans will probably have to wait until she-hulk wrap up its first season to discover the reason behind the attack that makes Jennifer Walters the MCU’s newest green-skinned superhero. That said, Jennifer’s transformation caused by an attack rather than just a freak accident makes her seem more likely to she-hulk It may not only tie into previous MCU titles, but also set up a future Hulk-centric project.
Yes this she-hulk The theory is correct, that means the upcoming Disney+ series may, among other things, reveal that Bruce Banner still has some unfinished business to attend to on Sakaar.
