Okay, so we’re gonna say the first part and get it out of the way: The CGI doesn’t look great? Hopefully it’ll get a little more cleaned up before the premiere. Then again, Hulk has regularly looked pretty uncanny in the MCU, so maybe that’s asking a lot.
In case you’ve never heard that name before, She-Hulk is the human persona of Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), an attorney in the Marvel-verse 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 on explaining to us, if their tests in the trailer are anything to go by. But it seems as though Jennifer’s journey to hulking out will be a little different—when Bruce tells her how he finds the green guy by triggering anger and fear within him, she counters, “Those are like the baseline of any woman just existing.”
She-Hulk will be a nine-episode half-hour series, much like 2021’s WandaVision. The tone has a more comedic vibe than many of the MCU television shows, with Jennifer’s friendships and dating woes taking up equal screentime alongside her hulk test runs.
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 she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk. The nine-episode 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. 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.
