(Warning: This article contains spoilers for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law)
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law's first episode unquestionably defied all the expectations. Featuring Tatiana Maslany as the titular heroine, the first episode already saw Mark Ruffalo's long-awaited return as Bruce Banner since his last appearance in Avengers: Endgame, with a jaw-dropping first look at Jameela Jamil as Titania, the main antagonist of the show.
What made Titania's first appearance intriguing is that there was no origin story or no mention at all regarding the villain. While Jennifer Walters was in the courtroom, Titania effortlessly broke a wall and disrupted Walters' prepped speech, resulting in the first-ever showdown between She-Hulk and Titania. Although Titania displayed superhuman strength just like She-Hulk, the titular heroine still outpowered her, which settles the debate that She-Hulk is indeed more powerful than Titania. Knowing that Jameela Jamil's Titania is the show's main villain, this sequence seems odd, and fans are certainly expecting more of the character.
In a recent interview with Collider, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law showrunner Jessica Gao might have spoiled Titania's future. Despite the appearance in the first episode, Gao revealed that Titania won't be a major antagonist until Episode 5. See Gao's full quote below:
"At the very end of the fourth episode, we set it up where there’s gonna be bigger conflict. You’ll see what that conflict is in the very next episode. We’ll start to see Titania a lot more. But with the first few episodes, we just wanted to seed her in there because in the comics she was this gnat that was always buzzing around She-Hulk. It was never like, “Oh, Titania’s gonna destroy the city.” It was always, “Titania has come up with yet another way to come after Jen.” That’s really what we’ve tried to preserve in the show."
It's good to know that She-Hulk is sticking to the source material. Just like what Gao said, Titania isn't really a prominent villain in Marvel Comics, instead, she just pesters Walters in any chance she gets.
Will There Be She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Season 2?
In the same interview, Gao was asked about the possibility of doing a She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Season 2, in which she candidly admitted:
"Oh, I’m absolutely not thinking about moving forward."
Nonetheless, she went on to defend her answer, revealing that she originally had ideas that could be explored in a potential second season. She concluded:
"Yeah. Honestly, even when I pitched the show, I already had an idea of where I would want it to go for another season and what the premise of that season would be. From the beginning, I had ideas of where it would go. But coming from TV, you can’t ever go into a first season show thinking you’re gonna get another season. You have to plan for the fact that this might be one and done, so you have to create a season that feels like it’s telling a complete story, and yet leaves the door open. That’s how I approached it. There are a lot of things that we just couldn’t get to, or had to cut from the first season, and it would be really nice for those things to see the light of day again."
