The upcoming Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law promises a lot of fun and a multitude of new characters ushering into the fray as MCU preps itself for the onslaught of newcomers via a single series. The official trailer which was released at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con Hall H Panel was a worthy attestation to the fact that the series will be one of its kind.
She-Hulk appears to have no qualms about flaunting the array of chaotic villains and superhero characters in its 2-minute trailer. There’s an overload of sensory inputs due to the avalanche of familiar faces the audience can witness in the trailer, starting from Tim Roth to Benedict Wong to Mark Ruffalo.
She-Hulk Promises a Joyride Into a New Era of MCU
The Disney+ series hauls in a bunch of headlining characters straight out of the comics that were never before witnessed in live-action. She-Hulk also marks itself as the first Marvel comedy series project. With the talented Orphan Black actress, Tatiana Maslany taking on the role of the lead protagonist, we also find MCU veteran Mark Ruffalo returning to his role as the Hulk and Wong making a cameo appearance. Tim Roth’s The Abomination from The Incredible Hulk, one of MCU’s first movies, also makes a comeback as a major antagonist in the series.
Apart from the familiar faces, She-Hulk officially marks the celebrated re-entry of Daredevil into the MCU. Jameela Jamil takes on the role of She-Hulk’s archnemesis, Titania, and Frog-Man finds a place among the already packed cast of the series. Even then, the series head writer, Jessica Gao surprisingly comments that the series hasn’t yet had the best cameos shown in the trailer.
Jessica Gao and Tatiana Maslany Talk About She-Hulk
The series writer Jessica Gao has recently shared her thoughts on the Phase Four project during the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con. She teased that a lot of the characters who will comprise the first season are going to be newcomers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, much like Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk herself. Further, commenting about the series, she said —
“What I’m most excited about is really getting the time and the space to explore [She-Hulk] fully, because in the Marvel movies, it’s always these high stakes events. The universe is ending, half of the people in existence are getting snapped out. And we never really have the time to really explore who these people are, what are their regular lives like. And what’s really nice about this is we actually the time and the space to do that.”

According to Gao, the first season had been “a lot of fun” and will feature “a lot of cameos, and a lot of characters that have never existed in the MCU before that we’re pulling out of the comic books.” While talking about her character, Maslany said that Jennifer Walters and her alter ego are “the antithesis to most superhero narratives. There’s this great element of denial in her that’s relatable. For me, it was about rejecting what’s happened for as long as I could, as that’s what causes the fun tension between Jennifer and She-Hulk.”
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law premieres on Disney+ on 17 August 2022.
