She-Hulk Knows Channeling Rage Isn’t The Ticket In First Trailer

Alright, let’s say the first part and get rid of it: doesn’t the CGI look great? I hope it will be cleaned up a bit more before the premiere. Then again, the Hulk has regularly looked pretty weird in the MCU, so maybe that’s asking a lot.

In case you’ve never heard the name before, She-Hulk is the human personality of Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), a Marvel-Verse lawyer who is cousin to Bruce Banner. Why being Bruce’s cousin leads to Jennifer also having giant green monster powers is clearly something the show is keen to explain to us, if their tests in the trailer are up to snuff. But it looks like Jennifer’s journey to the exit will be a little different – when Bruce tells her how he found the green guy by triggering anger and fear in him, she retorts: “It’s like the baseline of n any woman who just existed.”

She-Hulk will be a series of nine half-hour episodes, much like the one in 2021 Wanda Vision. The tone has a more comedic vibe than most MCU TV shows, with Jennifer’s friendships and dating issues taking up equal screen time alongside her hulk tests.

Here’s what Disney has to say about the show:

Directed by Kat Coiro (episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9) and Anu Valia (episodes 5, 6, 7) with Jessica Gao as head writer, “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” follows Jennifer Walters as as she navigates the complicated life of a single 30-something lawyer who also happens to be a 6-foot-7 green superpowered hulk. The nine-episode series features a host of MCU veterans, including Mark Ruffalo as the Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong. The cast also includes Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry.

She-Hulk will premiere on Disney+ on August 17 this year.
