Marvel has released the first trailer for its latest spinoff series. She-Hulk: Lawyer, and it looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. Bonus: Mark Ruffalo reprises his role as Bruce Banner/Hulk and teams up with She-Hulk, played by orphan black Star Tatyana Maslany. Marvel also announced that it has started production in Atlanta echoa nine-episode spinoff series starring Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), the leader of a deaf gang, and was introduced last year hawk eye.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has described the series as a “half-hour legal comedy” (featuring superheroes) and said it borrows heavily from John Byrne’s approach to the character in the comics. That would The sensational She-Hulk Series known for its metafictional approach, in which She-Hulk occasionally broke the fourth wall, went through ads and even feuded with Byrne as the writer. The character has been a member of The Avengers, The Fantastic Force, and SHIELD, and She-Hulk is expected to appear in the MCU films at some point.
According to the official premise: “She-Hulk: Lawyer follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single lawyer in his 30s who also happens to be a 6’7″ green super-powered Hulk.” Tim Roth will reprise his role alongside Ruffalo’s “Smart Hulk.” Emil Blonsky/The Abomination in 2008 The incredible Hulkand Benedict Wong will be back as Wong, who last appeared in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Jameela Jamil plays Titania, a superpowered rival of SheHulk; Ginger Gonzaga plays Walter’s best friend; and Renee Elise Goldsberry plays Amelia.
We saw the first recordings of She Hulk last November during Disney+ Day. The short teaser featured Maslany and Ruffalo in a homage to the 1970s live-action series Hulk, with Walters voicing Bill Bixby’s trademark, “Don’t get mad. You wouldn’t like me if I was angry.” This new trailer introduces us to Jennifer Walters (Maslany), a successful solo attorney who has just been asked to head up her firm’s superhuman legal department. But then her cousin Bruce Banner gives her a blood transfusion and she gains some of his Hulk abilities. Luckily, he’s a great mentor, training her to channel her powers by focusing on her anger and fear (aka “the baseline of every woman in existence right now”).
We get a sneak peek at Roth’s Blonsky in prison and in his Abomination form, as well as Jamil’s Titania. And it looks like She-Hulk is trying to find Mr. Right (or maybe Mr. Right Now) as we see her swipe through a dating app and carry one of their dates groom-style into the bedroom.
As for Echo, We have already met Maya Lopez, aka Echo hawk eye. She was the deaf commander of the Tracksuit Mafia and was able to perfectly copy another person’s movements. And she was searching for the true identity of Ronin, the assassin who killed her father. This put them on a collision course with Clint Barton/Hawkeye, who had ditched his Ronin gear forever.
When the two ended up fighting, Barton revealed that someone who worked for Maya’s boss wanted her father dead. That boss turned out to be Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio). In the Hawkeye finale, Kingpin escaped, only to be confronted by an angry Maya who had learned the truth about her father’s murder. We heard a shot, but who was shot? And was it a mortal wound?
That echo Series appears to be an origin story. According to the official premise, the character’s “reckless behavior in New York City is catching up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace the importance of family and community if she is ever to hope to move forward.” D’Onofrio will reprise his role as Kingpin, and we’ll even get Charlie Cox as Matt See Murdock/Daredevil, who was last seen briefly (to the delight of fans). Spider-Man: No Way Home. Zahn McClarnon will play Maya’s late father, William Lopez.
