The long wait is finally over, Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for She-Hulk.
The show, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, got its first trailer and sees Tatiana Maslany make her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Jennifer Walters, cousin to Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner, and a lawyer who specializes in superheroes. Although She-Hulk's appearance and CGI were the targets of criticism by some fans, most are generally happy to see the show finally get a trailer and, more importantly, a release date.
In addition to Maslany and Ruffalo, She-Hulk: Attorney at law will see Tim Roth return as Abomination as well as Benedict Wong as Wong, with Jameela Jamil joining the cast as Titania, She-Hulk's frequent rival in the comic books.
It appears that the live-action adaptation of the She-Hulk comics won't deviate much from her origin story. Although the trailer didn't reveal when exactly Banner gave Walters a blood transfusion to save her life, it does show the close relationship between the two. We also got glimpses of Stark technology in play, suggesting that Banner is still keeping in contact with Stark Industries after the death of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.
After sprinkling comedic sequences in previous MCU films and shows, Marvel Studios is doubling down on the comedy part for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The nine-episode legal company is shaping up to be the MCU's funniest yet.
Of course, only time will tell if She-Hulk will deliver. CGI issues aside, the trailer does a great job of setting expectations and preparing audiences for what's to come. Who knows? Marvel Studios might take even more inspiration from John Byrne's Sensational She-Hulk series from the 80s and have She-Hulk breaking the fourth wall and talking to the readers (beat that, Deadpool).
She-Hulk is set to premiere exclusively on Disney Plus on August 17.
Until then, fans can check out Ms. Marvel on Disney's streaming platform starting on June 8 with Thor: Love and Thunder hitting theaters on July 8. Also, speaking of She-Hulk, the character might head to Marvel's Avengers next after Lady Thor, as leaked last year.
