Well, this is it. Marvel Studios’ Hulk is officially joined by another Hulk, Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters. Marvel just dropped the official trailer of the upcoming series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which is set to premiere on August 17, 2022, on Disney+.
Every fan knows the backstory. You know, Walters was injured and had an emergency blood transfusion from, of all people, her cousin, Bruce Banner. Naturally, she inherited her cousin’s Hulk condition, albeit one that’s milder.
While milder, Walters is significantly larger than her human self and obviously, she gained superhuman power and oh, she’s green. All while retaining her original personality, much like Dr. Hulk but without the struggle Banner has gone through.
But being a Hulk, rage fuels her power and thus, she will become stronger when she gets angrier. I don’t really follow the comics but I remembered that Walter’s transformation became permanent and she had to carry on her life as an attorney in green. Like, how cool is that?
Anyhoo, from the 1-minute and 47 seconds trailer, you will have an overview of the story – except for how she got so injured that she required a transfusion and why no one but Banner was a suitable donor.
The trailer also gave us a good look at the She-Hulk which, if I can be honest, looks super CGI at some point. Especially when next to Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk.
Marvel Studios She-Hulk: Attorney at Law stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/Abomination, Jameela Jamil as Titania, Ginger Gonzaga as Walter’s best friend, and Benedict Wong as Wong, The Sorcerer Supreme and Blonsky’s friend.
Speaking of veteran British actor Tim Roth, he also appeared in Louis Leterrier’s 2008 The Incredible Hulk as the same character. Tim’s Abomination also appeared briefly in Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings in a rigged cage fight with Wong. Turns out that they are friends. But how? Sorry for the sidetrack. Anyways, skip ahead for the said trailer.
