She-Hulk: Attorney at Law moved to Thursdays, avoiding Star Wars' Andor
The newly released trailer showcases Jennifer Walters training with Smart Hulk to manage her powers
Updated August 3, 2022: Disney+ has pushed the release date for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law to August 18, a day later than originally announced. This means that new episodes of the show will debut on Thursdays instead of Wednesdays, a shift from the Marvel tradition on the service, but one that will mean that new episodes of the show won't overlap with the opening episodes of Andor when that debuts September 21 (itself delayed three weeks).
"I just want to be a normal, anonymous lawyer."
Marvel Studios just released the first (and very green) trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, a nine-episode series which will be released for streaming on Disney+ on August 18.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will follow Jennifer Walters (AKA She-Hulk) as she learns to control her powers, deals with a heavy (and superhuman) legal workload, and navigates the perils of dating.
This series, the sixth from the Marvel Studios Disney+ lineup, seems to be aiming for a more light-hearted tone than the previous WandaVision, Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, and Moon Knight, hinting at a more relatable, down-to-earth storyline about a woman who finds herself in an extraordinary situation.
While Jennifer Walters has powers, she doesn't seem to want to use them-- at least not for superheroing. She laughs off a suggestion that she could be an Avenger, saying "Oh, I'm not a superhero. That is for billionaires and narcissists, and adult orphans, for some reason."
She-Hulk will star Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters, with a supporting cast of characters from previous MCU properties such as Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong. Other members of the cast include Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
The show will be directed by Kat Coiro (who will direct episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9) and Anu Valia (who will direct episodes 5, 6, 7). Jessica Gao serves as head writer.
She-Hulk debuts August 17 on Disney+.
