Right after Ms. Marvel wraps up, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s TV wing rolls right into She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which premieres in a little over a month on Disney+. And what should you expect from that show?
Well, according to the series’ star, Tatiana Maslany, you should prepare for something a little different than other superhero stories. In fact, Maslany claims She-Hulk herself is “the antithesis of most superhero narratives.”
In a new interview with Empire, Maslany explained how she differs from the rest of the MCU:
She really is the antithesis of most superhero narratives … there’s this great element of denial in her that’s relatable. For me, it was about rejecting what’s happened for as long as I could, as that’s what causes the fun tension between Jennifer and She-Hulk.
She added that that because the show centers around She-Hulk in her alter ego of Jennifer Walters working as a lawyer either defending or prosecuting cases involving superheroes, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law becomes a “really absurd take on a legal show.”
Empire also debuted a new photo from the show:
Here is the trailer for She-Hulk:
And here’s the series’ official synopsis:
In Marvel Studios’ “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany)—an attorney specializing in superhuman-oriented legal cases—must navigate the complicated life of a single, 30-something who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk. The nine-episode comedy 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, as well as Jameela Jamil, Josh Segarra, Ginger Gonzaga, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ on August 17, and run for nine weekly episodes.
