Tatiana Maslany transforms into She-Hulk in the first-ever trailer for the most awaited Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The She-Hulk series at Disney+ is officially set to premiere on August 17. Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed the news at the Disney upfront presentation in New York on Tuesday alongside series star Tatiana Maslany. They also debuted a trailer for the series.
The 10-episode show, which is now officially titled She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, is about a normal thirtysomething woman named Jennifer Walters (played by Maslany) living in Los Angeles until she receives a blood transfusion from her cousin, The Hulk aka Mark Ruffalo. The procedure leads to Jennifer being forced to balance her new life as She-Hulk, a hero with superhuman strength, and a successful lawyer.
The trailer begins by showing Jennifer’s life before her metamorphosis, as a young woman working and living in Los Angeles. “I’m Jennifer Walters, a lawyer,” she explains. ‘I have great friends, a demanding job and a frustrating family.’ That all changes once her cousin Bruce Banner aka The Hulk goes over her inevitable transformation. She is then seen inside a small room inside a laboratory while wearing a helmet attached to the ceiling by wires.
Once Jennifer returns to Los Angeles, she grapples with her new identity. However, she didn’t like her new avatar at first but, the world embraces their new superheroine as she gets invited to glitzy parties and is fawned over by onlookers. When She-Hulk isn’t living it up, she’s fighting baddies in and out of the courtroom and also looking for love. Unlike Bruce, however, when she hulks out Jennifer is able to retain most of her personality, intelligence, and emotional control.
She-Hulk now works as a lawyer who specializes in superhuman-oriented legal cases. Along with Maslany, the cast includes 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. The upcoming show will be the third Marvel Studios series released this year, following Moon Knight in March and Ms. Marvel, which premieres June 8.
In addition, the company will also release a currently untitled Halloween special on Disney+ in October, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, from director James Gunn, this December. She-Hulk will begin streaming on Disney+ from August 17 till then watch trailer here:
