With May 2022 drawing to a close, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Moon Knight is our most recent look into the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). We are now thrust into the next phase of the MCUs releases for the year.
The next show coming to Disney+ will be Ms. Marvel in June and She-Hulk: Attorney At Law in August 2022. We'll look at all the details about the show, including the new trailer, what the show will be about, and the characters and cast we expect to see.
When Is She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Releasing?
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law will be streaming on the streaming platform Disney+ on its new release date of 18th August 2022, a day later than its intended date of 17th August 2022. While we don't know much about the show, fans are excited to see an iconic female superhero carving out her role in the MCU.
How To Watch She-Hulk: Attorney At Law?
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law will be released every Tuesday starting on 18th August 2022 and concluding its run on 13th October 2022. The show will be split into nine episodes, and while the run times are unconfirmed for each episode, based on previous Marvel Disney+ shows, we expect a 30-40 minute runtime for each episode.
Disney+ is available in over 50 countries worldwide, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean. Once we cross mid-2022, i.e next month, the streaming service should be available in 50 more countries across the world including the United Emirates and South Africa.
What Is The She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Series About?
She-Hulk made her first appearance in Savage She-Hulk #1 in 1980 in a desperate act by Stan Lee and John Buscema to claim the rights to a "Hulk, but female" character after the hit success of The Hulk's original comics. A staggering 42 years later, She-Hulk makes her debut in the MCU in the Disney+ show She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
The show will be following our protagonist Jenniffer Walters a.k.a She-Hulk, a skilled lawyer with a strong sense of justice and doing what's right as she makes her way through the world of superheroes, gods, and villains alike.
In the comics, a failed murder attempt leaves her in a critical condition, and in need of an immediate blood transfusion. Her cousin, Bruce Banner donates blood to her as he is both a blood and DNA match, giving her the abilities of the Hulk, but a slightly milder version, allowing her to keep her personality and intelligence.

It seems that in the new series, we will see this story play out similarly, except the accident has been lightened to involve a car crash, resulting in her injury. Bruce Banner likely needs to donate his blood, as she has no other living relatives, as alluded to later in the trailer where she references some heroes "being orphans”.
The plot seems to follow her learning to control and live with her new condition as she tries to balance her stressful job; prosecuting or defending individuals in a post blip world, and a complicated and difficult personal life. This is likely where the show's central conflict will come to light as she tries to maintain a normal life, but she can't ignore the old Spider-Man adage that great power comes with great responsibility.
The trailer also shows this in detail, as we see her taking on some new villains in her She-Hulk form, going out with friends, spending time with her cousin Bruce and even swiping right on Tinder dates. Later in the trailer, however, we see her in what looks like the hero costume in the comics, alluding to her taking up the mantle of She-Hulk and becoming a superhero as she develops and learns to embrace both sides of her new life.
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Casting And Characters
She-Hulk - Taking on the role of our main protagonist, Tatiana Maslany reprises the role of Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-hulk. Tatiana is an impressive actor, her mannerisms, humour and acting range will see both the timid, mild, career-focused Jennifer and the confident, strong and outspoken She-Hulk personas portrayed in realistic and captivating ways.
Smart Hulk - Mark Ruffalo returns to reprise his role as Smart Hulk in the brand new She-hulk: Attorney at Law Disney+ Series. His role seems to be as a mentor to his cousin Jennifer Walters as she acclimates to her new abilities and role in the world.
Abomination - For the first time since the Incredible Hulk, we see Emil Blonsky a.k.a the Abomination in his human form being played by Tim Roth. While we aren't sure what his role will be in the film as of yet, whether he will act as an antagonist to She-Hulk or as a character pushing the plot forward in her capacity as a lawyer.
Titania - Jameela Jamil will be appearing as Titania, a classic antagonist for She-hulk in the comics as a pawn for Dr Doom. Based on the trailer it appears she will be continuing her role as a villain in the show, appearing to attack She-Hulk while in her day to day life in court.
While we aren't sure where Jennifer/She-Hulk will appear next in the MCU, we will keep our ears to the ground to bring you the latest news on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law as more information is announced.
For now, be sure to catch the show as it premieres on Disney+ on 18th August 2022, every Thursday at 7 am GMT / 3 am ET/ 12 am PT, and check out the trailer above if you haven't already.
