‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Gets A Trailer, Premiering August On Disney+
The newly titled new Marvel comedy ‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘, which premieres this August on the streaming service, has landed a trailer tonight.
The series centres on Jennifer Walters, played by the amazingly talented ‘Orphan Black’ star Tatiana Maslany, as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney specialising in superhuman-oriented legal cases… who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk. Bruce Banner helps his cousin when she needs an emergency blood transfusion, but she also receives his powers too! Mark Ruffalo returns is as “Smart Hulk” alongside Tim Roth, who reprises his role from the 2008 movie ‘The Incredible Hulk’ as the Abomination.
The series also stars Jameela Jamil (‘The Good Place’) as Titania, a rival of Jennifer with superhuman strength and healing, Ginger Gonzaga (‘Space Force’) as Jennifer’s best friend, and Renée Elise Goldsberry (‘Girls5eva’, ‘Hamilton’) as Amelia. Anais Almonte and Josh Segarra (‘Arrow’) also star in undisclosed roles (although Almonte is also going to be Jamil’s stunt double for the show, along with taking an on-screen role.)
‘She-Hulk’ is directed by Kat Coiro and Anu Valia, with Jessica Gao serving as head writer, and is one of a string of Marvel projects for Disney+. We’ve already had ‘WandaVision’ and ‘The Falcon and Winter Soldier‘, What If…?’, ‘Loki’, ‘Hawkeye’ and ‘Moon Knight’. ‘Ms. Marvel’ is up next premiering on 8th June 2022. ‘She-Hulk’ will be followed (in no particular order) by ‘Secret Invasion’, ‘Ironheart’, ‘Armor Wars’, and a currently untitled series set in Wakanda. On top of all those, a Halloween special is coming in October 2022 featuring the character ‘Werewolf by Night’, and ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special’ landing in December 2022.
The trailer was released as part of Disney’s “Upfront” this evening, where MCU overlord Kevin Feige also revealed that ‘Loki’ was the most-watched Marvel series on Disney+ (I’m betting some of that was repeated viewing by our friend and podcast co-host Bex – aka TristaBytes – just staring a Tom Hiddleston multiple times..) Production on ‘Loki’ Season 2 begins in the next few weeks with all the main cast set to return.
‘She-Hulk‘ premieres Wednesday, 17th August 2022 on Disney+ worldwide.
