Fans have speculated that as an attorney, Jennifer Walters will be working for heroes and villains in this show. But one thing that everyone is curious about is the timeline of the show. 

Confusion About the Timeline

The confusion comes with the appearance of Mark Ruffalo’s character Bruce Banner. In the earlier trailers, Bruce Banner was mostly seen as the Professor Hulk, but in a recently released clip, the character is seen as Bruce Banner with his arm in a sling, indicating his injury from wielding the Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Endgame.

By the end of Avengers: Endgame, Professor Hulk also had his arm in a sling. After which, Bruce Banner appeared in the first mid-credit scene in Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings. 


Another appearance is of Abomination, played by Tim Roth with Wong. Both the characters have made their appearance in Shang-Chi’s underground fight club scene. It is enough to confuse everyone about the timeline of the show.

Many also believe if the series takes place sometime after the events of Shang-Chi, it may have some mentions about them. An interaction between Bruce Banner and Shang-Chi was seen in the post-credit scenes of the movie. Considering this, Banner may mention something about Shang-Chi or the Ten Rings to Jennifer. 

The wait will be over soon with the premiere of the series this Thursday, August 18. As one of the last projects of the MCU’s Phase 4, something big may happen during or by the end of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
