The trailer for Marvel’s She-Hulk: Lawyer not only gives a glimpse into She-Hulk’s MCU origin and history, but also reveals some of the key returning and new MCU characters set to appear in the Disney+ series. Aside from an impressive cast of characters and potential storylines, the She-Hulk: Lawyer The trailer is packed with Easter eggs and references to the grand scheme of things in the MCU. While most of these fan-centric tidbits can only be speculated on for now, the characters confirmed in the trailer paint a clear picture of all of the unsolved MCU storylines She-Hulk: Lawyer intends to solve, and the new storylines it plans to create.
The trailer largely suggests that She-Hulk: Lawyer will be a far cry from the relatively sombre tone of MCU Phase 4, relying heavily on humor rather than serious melodrama. It gives a glimpse into Jennifer Walters’ day-to-day struggles as a corporate lawyer and her struggles as the green-tinted She-Hulk version of herself. Interestingly, unlike Bruce Banner, Walters seems to strike the right balance between her personal life and the Gamma-powered superhero life . With incredible strength and wild wit, she also manages to carry her huge, green self into the public eye with ease.
Bruce Banner/Smart Hulk also appears briefly in the She Hulk Trailer confirming that like the other of his previous appearances in the MCU, he will again be a secondary protagonist as he plays a key role in helping Jennifer Walters control her alter ego. That She Hulk Trailer also includes a few blink-or-miss-em cameos from Jameela Jamil as Titania, plus Frog-Man and even Abomination. But even with so many revelations, the She Hulk Trailer keeps most of its overarching plot points – and most likely even many of its characters – under the covers.
Jennifer Walters, played by Tatiana Maslany, is a lawyer known as the She Hulk Trailer suggests is “the face of the superhuman legal department.” Much to her dismay, she lives a complicated life juggling her corporate job with her newfound shenanigans as the green giant superhero She-Hulk. In the trailer, Bruce Banner refers to her as his cousin, confirming this She Hulk will stick to the comic book origins of the title character. Her Herculean strength and form in the comics stem from an emergency blood transfusion given by Bruce, allowing the gamma-irradiated blood to flow through her veins.
However, unlike Bruce, the MCU’s She-Hulk appears to have retained all aspects of her personality, and may not even become a colossal angry monster like the Hulk. In a conversation with her best friend in the trailer, Jennifer Walters discusses how she despises heroes and claims that she will never go down the superhero path. But given her training arc with Smart Hulk, it might only be a matter of time before she starts fighting crime outside of the courtroom.
Bruce Banner/Smart Hulk
Appearance of Smart Hulk in She Hulk raises many questions surrounding the MCU’s current schedule. Additionally, it’s hard not to wonder if Bruce Banner has already sustained the arm injury from the Iron Man Gauntlet. In which She Hulk Trailer, Mark Ruffalo’s Smart Hulk is more or less a guide to his cousin, helping her gain more control over her newfound abilities. He may play a more significant role in the overall storyline of the 10-episode series, but given his disillusioning past in the MCU, it’s hard to predict what’s in store for him.
Titania, a key villain in She HulkShe appears fleetingly in the trailer. According to the comics, she was once a short girl named Mary MacPherran who was often bullied by her schoolmates. However, a chance encounter with Fantastic Four’s nemesis Doctor Doom gave her the opportunity to gain superpowers in exchange for agreeing to join his rogue army. Using Battleworld’s alien technology, he transformed her into Titania. Your live-action version in She Hulk is played by Jameela Jamil, of The good place Fame, and Titania’s long history in Marvel Comics, suggests there’s a lot more to her evil characterization than meets the eye.
Tim Roth reprises his role as Abomination, who first appeared in 2008 at the beginning of the MCU as Hulk’s nemesis The incredible Hulk. More than a decade later, the franchise surprisingly brought him back, showing Abomination battling Wong for the sport Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. What makes his performance here so intriguing is that he’s the only one besides Jennifer Walters who has Bruce Banner’s blood coursing through his body. This could mean he now joins forces with Bruce and Jennifer to help them better understand their transformations. The fact that Abomination was Wong’s cage match partner Shang Chi indicates that he is now on the right track.
After much speculation, Benedict Wong is returning She Hulk, as Sorcerer Supreme Wong, was confirmed. Although nothing has been announced about his role in the series, it’s possible that it will have something to do with Tim Roth’s subscription. This could further explain how the two came to sparring together Shang Chi and bring closure to this unsolved storyline.
A superhero like Frog-Man is much needed in a universe familiar with super soldiers and billionaire playboy-turned-heroes. Unlike most Marvel vigilantes, Frog-Man is just a regular human who lacks the incredible abilities that make superheroes so great. This lack makes Frog-Man a ridiculously hilarious character whose sole purpose is to add some comic relief She Hulk‘s story. The wretched wannabe hero might not play a significant role in this She-Hulk: Lawyer‘s overarching storyline, but it promises some laughs.
