“You’ll like her when she’s angry.”
After first appearing in The Savage She-Hulk #1 in February 1980, Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, is now getting her own Marvel Studios TV show on Disney Plus, joining the tide of Marvel titles created for the small screen were made.
In the comics, Walters receives a milder form of his Hulk condition after receiving an emergency blood transfusion. Like the Hulk, she is prone to bouts of anger or fear, turns green, and becomes noticeably stronger. Unlike her cousin Bruce Banner, she retains her personality and intelligence and doesn’t appear as monstrous.
With the release of the first trailer for the Disney Plus show, here’s what we know about the series, including the cast and when we can see it for ourselves.
The first trailer for She-Hulk, released on May 17, introduces Jennifer Walters of Tatiana Maslany, Bruce Banner’s cousin, to the MCU as she becomes She-Hulk. The show is designed to be a much lighter production than other recent titles like Moon Knight and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Walters is a 30-something lawyer who doesn’t seem to have much interest in being a superhero or Avenger. In fact, Banner needs some convincing to transform from what we can see in the trailer.
Starring alongside Tatiana Maslany are Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Benedict Wong as Wong, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. Additionally, Tim Roth returns to the Marvel Universe as Emil Blonsky/The Abomination.
Those who have seen Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will have seen the Abomination fighting Wong in the Golden Daggers Club. He was then in full Abomination form, but appears in the trailer for She-Hulk looking 100% human despite being confined to a glass cube.
