She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is just around the corner and as fan expectations build, so do the new tidbits of information from the series crew and Disney+ production. The Tatiana Maslany starring series will feature, for the first time since 2008, an entirely Hulk-centric project and will bring together MCU veterans Mark Ruffalo, Benedict Wong, and Charlie Cox, along with newcomer Jameela Jamil.

She-Hulk and Her Real World Problems

It’s not because one is a superhero that the rest of the mundane world problems cease to exist. Superheroes are defined by such traumatizing, egregious, and enduring struggles that the audience often gets confused while placing them in a commonplace or real-world scenario. But She-Hulk has now removed the barrier between the heroic and the mundane, the reel and the real, and has brought forth a delectable mixture of humor, action, and of course, a superhero dealing with the frustrations of dating.

The series will feature Tatiana Maslany‘s Jennifer Walters who is infused with Bruce Banner‘s blood after an accident thus giving her Hulk-like powers. Besides acclimating herself to the new changes and adapting them to her already hectic schedule, she is also assigned the case of The Abomination (Emil Blonsky) which puts her directly under the spotlight as she has to deal with new-found supervillains and monsters running wild in her city.

Jon Bass Wants to be the Next Tony Stark of MCU

The 32-year-old Baywatch star, Jon Bass, is making an entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Todd, one of Jennifer Walters’ dates who happen to hit it off with the She-Hulk after a series of unfortunate dating mishaps on the latter’s part. However, Todd happens to be one such character who pops up at every other place, making Jon Bass’s character a series recurring guest star. But the factor which comes off as most striking about the comedic actor is his role as a wannabe Tony Stark. As stated by  Bass:

“Todd is a billionaire playboy philanthropist douchebag who wants more than anything to feel like Tony Stark, but comes off as Jon Bass. He is used to getting whatever he wants, but he’s a total creep who starts popping up everywhere.”

Series co-producer, Wendy Jacobson, also has something to add about this unique and obnoxious character:

“Jon Bass is so funny and he’s so good at playing this terrible person—it’s really fun to watch. The character of Todd plays on the social commentary of misogyny and incel culture and the unfair views of women. He’s annoying, but mostly harmless and it’s really about embodying these awkward interactions you have with someone when they keep showing up in your life over and over again.”

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law will premiere on Disney+ on August 18, 2022.
