She-Hulk Trailer Shows Disney+ Could Have Another Big Hit
(Pocket-lint) – Marvel has released a trailer for its upcoming new TV series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. And, if the brief preview is anything, the studio and Disney+ might be on the verge of knocking it out of the park again.
With Moon Knight recently receiving rave reviews and WandaVision, Loki and Hawkeye being loved by critics and fans alike, Marvel Studios apparently can’t be wrong. Even The Falcon and the Winter Solider brought blockbuster action to the small screen.
We’ll also soon be treated to Ms. Marvel, with the same new show debuting June 8, and details on Hawkeye’s spin-off Echo beginning to emerge. Now we also have She-Hulk to look forward to.
It will premiere on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, and will star Tatiana Maslany as lawyer Jennifer Walters and her alter-ego She-Hulk.
A cousin of Bruce Banner (the Hulk), Walters gains similar abilities, turning 6-foot-7, green, and super strong when in danger. We don’t yet know if the series will follow the comics, as his powers will appear after Banner’s blood transfusion or if there will be another explanation, but the end result will be the same.
However, where she differs from most superheroes is that she adopts her new form and, as you can see in the trailer, ends up spending more time as She-Hulk than she does. ‘otherwise.
It’s also more gagged than most Marvel series, with the late ’80s and early ’90s comics featuring a more humorous Walters for the most part.
The show will be exclusive to Disney+ and will also feature Mark Ruffalo – reprising his role as Banner/the Hulk – and Tim Roth returning as Emil Blonsky/Abomination, the role he played in the 2008 film The Incredible Hulk.
