The Lowdown On She-Hulk As Official Trailer Is Released

Molly Raby May 18, 2022

It was way back in 2003 when Bruce Banner took to our screens and became the big green Hulk we all know and love. But now, Marvel has partnered with Disney+ and we are getting a female Hulk.

What is She-Hulk about?

The series’ full title is She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and it follows 30-something attorney Jennifer Walters, who is Bruce Banner’s cousin. After a blood transfusion similar to Banner’s, Walters gains superpowers and can grow to be 6-foot-7… and green. According to Marvel, ’she gained massive strength, [but] she never lost her passion for justice.’

The 10-part series will be released on August 17, exclusively on Disney+.

She-Hulk originated as a comic book series created by Stan Lee and John Buscema. The first comic, titled The Savage She-Hulk #1, was released in February 1980 and there were around 60 subsequent issues.

Who is starring in She-Hulk?

Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, is played by Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy in 2016 for her role as no less than 17 clones on Orphan Black.

The original Hulk, Mark Ruffalo is also set to be in the series. Tim Roth, who can be seen in the original Hulk films, as well as Emil Blonsky or ‘Abomination’, has also been cast.

Other notable cast memebrs are Benedict Wong (Avengers: Endgame), Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), Ginger Gonzaga (Space Force) and Josh Segarra (AJ and the Queen).

Marvel has had some backlash over the past decade with regards to female representation in their films. For several years, Black Widow was the only Avenger. Even then, she was only ever seen in skin-tight lycra.

All the male Avengers also got their own film franchises and it wasn’t until 2021 that Black Widow got hers. Marvel has since introduced more female superheroes and characters including Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Now, we have She-Hulk to add to that, hopefully, ever-growing list.
