‘She’s Also Aware of the Cameras’: She-Hulk Actor Tatiana Maslany Hints Jennifer Walters’ Hyper Awareness Makes Her as Good as Deadpool Because It ‘Feels Like a Woman’

She Hulk Actor Tatiana Maslany Hints Jennifer Walters Hyper Awareness Makes Her as Good as Deadpool Because It Feels Like a Woman

The She-Hulk: Attorney At Law trailer, when it dropped, was really up in the gossip air among the fans.

The reason, apart from some very disappointing CGI, was the quick scene in which we noticed how Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters, breaks the fourth wall during a conversation with him.

Of course, fans were quick to notice this small interaction and compare it to the ones they usually have with our beloved Deadpool.

Deadpool And The Fourth Wall Break

This dialogue delivered to the camera isn’t being done for the first time by a character in MCU, as Deadpool, one of the naughtiest and funniest characters (my personal favorite, mind you), is also known for his quick, witty, comedic remarks made for the audiences while addressing the fact that he, in fact, is nothing more than a character.

Deadpool, on multiple occasions, has broken the fourth wall to address the audience directly throughout his existence in the movies. The role of this amazing and hilarious character was played by the most perfect casting of Ryan Reynolds (this guy was born to play Deadpool like RDJ was born for Iron Man, and no one can change my mind).

It’s true that fans absolutely love being addressed directly by their favorite character as it makes things more real to them. This through-the-camera interaction is one of the best things about Deadpool and his character.

Jennifer Walters, She-Hulk, And (Again) The Fourth Wall

The character of Jennifer Walter had effectively obliterated the fourth wall in the comics. The readers always loved the fact that their favorite character was conscious enough to acknowledge how they are a character in a story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

When the actress who plays the role of Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, Tatiana Maslany, was asked to comment on this fourth-wall break, she claimed that the character’s “hyper-awareness” makes her acknowledge the camera.

“What’s interesting to me is the connection. Her consciousness, the same way that it flips between both bodies, she’s also aware of the cameras. So there’s this thing where she’s having to be so aware of every part of the mechanism that to me feels like a woman moving through the world. You have to be so aware of the systems that you’re in.”

“And you are just so aware of how it is when you’re walking down the street; who’s there, who’s that? That hyper-awareness in a lot of ways feels like her superpower and I think that’s fun. And also it’s a great way to bring the audience in. They already jumped into the universe of the MCU. But to be like ‘Hey, I see you coming in, so let’s go together’ is kind of a fun thing.”

Even the director of the upcoming Disney+ series, Kat Coiro, has teased the fans about this comedic choice for the character; stating that Jennifer Walters is “a woman who controls her own narrative.”

“Oh, we’ve got some big surprises coming to you regarding the fourth wall. I always love to say that She-Hulk has been breaking the fourth wall since 1980, way before Deadpool, way before Fleabag, and it’s just a part of who she is. She’s a woman who controls her own narrative.”

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law will be premiering next month on 17th August, 2022, and will run for nine episodes each of about half an hour on Disney+
