In anticipation of its Disney+ debut on August 18, the courtroom comedy She-Hulk: Attorney at Law pays homage to one of the longest-running programmes in history.
Since its premiere in 1990, Law & Order has aired for 22 seasons and more than 450 episodes. So it’s only fitting that the next Marvel Cinematic Universe series acknowledge another series that also focuses on the American justice system.
Tatiana Maslany Plays Jennifer Walters
In She-Hulk, Tatiana Maslany plays Jennifer Walters, a single attorney in her thirties who also happens to be a green, 6-foot-7-inch superpowered Hulk. ‘In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the people are safeguarded by two distinct, yet equally essential groups,’ the latest teaser begins, borrowing a line from the opening of Law & Order. Lawyers who help clean up after the heroes who save them. But you can’t have it both ways. In her own words… Read on for the whole satirical advertisement.
Keven Feige, president of Marvel Studios, is intrigued by the fact that Jennifer Walters will meet a plethora of outlandish Marvel characters throughout the course of She-Hulk. ‘What’s fun is the types of characters that come to her for legal guidance.’ Interactions with Wong, Abomination, and her ultimate adversary, Titania, are shown in this preview. We already know that Charlie Cox will be back to play Daredevil/Matt Murdock in the series, and She-Hulk will likely make an appearance or two.
Don’t miss the premiere of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney+ next Monday, August 18.
Tatiana Maslany Says Her Character is Having an Identity Crisis
Actress Tatiana Maslany thinks her character is experiencing an identity problem since she has to go between being an average attorney and a huge Hulk superhero. While attending the 2022 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, she opened out to The Hollywood Reporter on what Jennifer Walters is going through.
Despite Marvel’s repeated descriptions of She-Hulk as comedic, it will be intriguing to see how they handle the story’s focus on the characters. A fascinating perspective for the show could be Jennifer Walters’ internal conflict over the changes she’s making to herself.
Mark Ruffalo, a mainstay of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will reunite with the up-and-coming Marvel actress in the September release of a nine-part series. The two are joined in the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe project coming to Disney+ by Tim Roth, Benedict Wong, Charlie Cox, Ginger Gonzaga, and Jameela Jamil.
