We're now just a day away before She-Hulk: Attorney at Law hits on Disney+ and fans have been looking forward to seeing Jennifer Walters' debut in the MCU after a long wait since the project's first announcement back in 2019. However, prior to its airing, the series went through a lot of changes behind-the-scenes including what we are about to see in the pilot episode.
Speaking recently with Variety, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law head writer Jessica Gao revealed that they changed the episode order of the series during post-production including the pilot episode where the majority of it was actually supposed to take place in the eighth episode.
"The episode order was slightly different — we changed things up a little bit in post. Most of the pilot that you see was actually Episode 8," Gao said. "We waited until the very end of the season to really reveal her origin story."
Gao also explained why they ended up making the decision, "There were several factors leading up to the decision, but really at the end of the day, we just realized people really wanted to know that information sooner. It was hard for them to not know the origin story and then get to know this character."
It is interesting to hear that the origin story was supposed to be revealed during the penultimate episode of the series. It is similar to WandaVision and Moon Knight, which also revealed the origins of their respective main characters during the penultimate episode.
At the end of the day, it might be the best decision for them to show the origins early on so that the audience can already familiarize themselves with the character and can invest in her journey without asking questions about why Jennifer was able to obtain her cousin's blood and become a Hulk as well.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is set to premiere on Disney+ this Thursday.
