She-Hulk: Attorney at Law director Kat Coiro explains the show smoothly balancing its comedic humor with drama in a recent interview. The show introduces Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, a lawyer, and Bruce Banner’s cousin who turns into a green beast from his blood.
Previously, it has been reported that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will focus more on Jennifer Walters’ sudden struggles as she tackles her green beast alter-ego while also trying to work on her career as a lawyer. The show perfectly blends with her problems along with legal comedy which differentiates the show from a typical MCU tone.
She-Hulk Director Talks About Balancing Comedy Tone With a Marvel Show
The show has already received positive comments and seems different from the basic standard of a superhero show. Earlier also the director explained how Marvel tends to experiment with different storylines and thus, it defined the show to be a perfect legal comedy. The show also perfectly aligns with the surprising scope of the franchise with plentiful action scenes and it’s best for fans who are looking forward to intense superhero entertainment.
“It’s always been about a balance between creating a new genre for Marvel, which is the half-hour legal comedy, but also feeling like it really fits into the MCU and feels big and cinematic and has action-packed moments. It was always about finding that balance.”
She-Hulk: Director Confirms That the Show Will Be ‘Full of Surprises’
Due to the humor in the show, these superhero explorations don’t overshadow Jennifer Walters’ dilemma. They gave this character a strong spotlight and showed how uncomfortable the character is with her popularity and if she should eventually give priority to her responsibilities as a superhero over her job.
The show’s potential to pull off an admirable balance between the elements of comedy and action was brought out when the director praised the writing and the actress emphasized her character even more with her performance. And this is politely true as Marvel heroes have generally pursued superpowers over the daily grind. But Jennifer’s goals are entirely different from the rest of them. Considering this unique touch and comedic tone, it’s right to say this character will spread out from other MCU shows and movies.
The first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will be released on 18 August 2022.
