She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Story: What Is It About?

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law introduces the Marvel comic character, Jennifer Walters, a single, 30-something attorney who happens to be the cousin of Bruce Banner (played by Mark Ruffalo) aka The Hulk.

After getting shot, Bruce volunteers to be her blood donor for an emergency transfusion. The procedure gives Jennifer some of Bruce’s gamma cells, which leads her to acquire some of her Hulk-like powers. But unlike Bruce, Jennifer doesn’t lose her personality or intelligence when she transforms into She-Hulk. This allows her to live “normally” while in her 6’7” superpower form.

The show will likely be her origin story as she deals with her transformation into the iconic character. And eventually, it will likely end with her decision to stay in her new form, even as she represents her clients as an attorney.

It's worth noting that in the comics, She-Hulk has fought with the Fantastic Four, The Defenders, and even The Avengers. So it's how She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will pave the way for future MCU films. Will she be the key to a future Avengers movie or part of The Defenders series?

The character was created by Stan Lee and John Buscema as a way of stopping people from the TV show, Incredible Hulk, from making their own female persona like The Bionic Woman. She first appeared in the comic book entitled, The Savage She-Hulk #1 in 1980.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is written by Jessica Gao. Several episodes will be directed by Kat Coiro (of Modern Family and Brooklyn Nine-Nine).

Back in May, a teaser was released for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. It shows Jennifer worrying about her love life now that she has superpowers.

Unfortunately, this teaser drew criticism for its dodgy CGI. Now that the show is nearing its release date, Marvel Studios released a brand new She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer at the San Diego Comic-Con held on July 23rd. The new trailer (with better editing and CGI work) shows Jennifer training with her cousin before she goes back to the courtroom to represent Emil Blonsky aka the Abomination (played by Tim Roth).

The trailer also hints at other Marvel characters who will be joining the show, such as Benedict Wong from Dr. Strange. But even more importantly, the end scene of the trailer seems to suggest an even bigger guest in the show.

We'll leave that up to you to guess who that is.
