She-Hulk Attorney at Law is an upcoming Disney+ series based on the Hulk’s cousin, Jennifer Walters.

In the comics, she receives a blood transfusion from her cousin after being shot by gang members. The transfusion saves her life, but also gives her the ability to transform into the Hulk.

Walters continues her work as a lawyer and tries to keep her She-Hulk identity a secret in the comics, and she eventually learns to control and accept her identity by openly living in her green skin as a part-time hero and part-time lawyer.

The Disney+ series seems to be taking over some of that history.

Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role as Bruce Banner, one of the few remaining original Avengers.

The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) seems to play a big role in the series as She-Hulk’s mentor as he learns to use his powers.

The Hulk, whose real name is Bruce Banner, was one of the first Avengers introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2008 film The Incredible Hulk.

After escaping from military captivity and saving Harlem from a monster called the Abomination (Tim Roth), Hulk went on the run until he was recruited by the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in The Avengers.

The Hulk joined the original Avengers team and helped save the world in the first two Avengers films.

In the sequel, he also helped Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) create the robotic villain Ultron (James Spader) and his antithesis Vision (Paul Bettany).

A big part of the Hulk’s dilemma in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is learning to control his powers.

In the second Avengers movie, Banner seems to have better control over his destruction and even has a way to calm down from Hulk mode.

However, after being tricked into taking part in the final battle in Sokovia by Black Widow, the Hulk gets the upper hand and he disappears.

In Thor: Ragnarok, the Hulk finds himself stranded on the planet Sakaar for several years and has not changed back from the Hulk to his human form.

Eventually, his friend Thor (Chris Hemsworth) accidentally turns the Hulk back into Banner’s form. Banner spends the rest of the film afraid to transform in case he gets stuck as the Hulk forever, but at the end of the film decides to take a chance to save the Asgardians.

The film leads into Avengers: Infinity War, in which the Hulk is beaten up by Thanos and sent to Earth as a messenger to summon the Avengers.

Later in the film, Banner finds that he can no longer transform into the Hulk after his first major defeat. Instead, during the final battle in Wakanda, he has to use the Iron Man suit to fight Thanos.

The Hulk was badly injured, bringing everyone back to life in Avengers: Endgame.

In Avengers: Endgame, Banner and the Hulk merged into one person called the Smart Hulk. This Hulk has Banner’s brain and the Hulk’s strength.

The Smart Hulk explains in the movie that being defeated by Thanos twice in Infinity War prompted him to improve himself, leading to this transformation.

This transformation even helps him deal with all the Infinity Stones to bring back everyone who died when Thanos wiped out half of all life in the universe.

Everyone’s return appears to have permanently damaged the Hulk’s right arm, as his arm is still in a cast in his post-credits appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

However, the Hulk’s arm appears to be intact in She-Hulk, raising questions about when the series takes place.

The Abomination makes its third appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Abomination (Tim Roth), the Hulk’s first villain from his solo movie, makes his third MCU appearance in She-Hulk.

Emil Blonsky (Roth) is a Special Forces soldier hired to hunt the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk. Blonsky was defeated multiple times despite being injected with a recreated version of the super soldier serum that empowered Captain America (Chris Evans).

Near the end of the film, Blonsky injects himself with Banner’s blood to become even stronger, but instead transforms into a monster known as the Abomination.

The Hulk defeats the Abomination in Harlem and the creature ends up in jail. Both Blonsky and Abomination appear in the She-Hulk trailer, and it looks like a superhuman lawyer is defending him in court.

Abomination makes his second appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, in which he fought Wong (Benedict Wong), a powerful sorcerer, in a cage match in China before being returned to prison.

Since Wong also appears in She-Hulk, perhaps the show will explain this accidental cameo.

Wong is the current Sorcerer Supreme after Doctor Strange died in the Flash.

Wong is first introduced in Doctor Strange as the librarian of Kamar-Taj, a training ground for mages on Earth. He befriends Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and together they help save the Earth in the movie.

After Thanos kills Strange in Infinity War, Wong is chosen as the Sorcerer Supreme, the title of Earth’s chief protector against mystical threats.

Wong still held the title after Strange’s return in Endgame and appeared in many projects in Phase 4.

Daredevil also makes his second appearance in the MCU.

Netflix

The She-Hulk trailers also tease another appearance from Charlie Cox’s Daredevil.

Cox originally played the character in the Netflix series Daredevil and The Defenders, both of which were linked to the MCU but have never been confirmed as canon.

In the series, Matt Murdock (Cox) is a lawyer blinded by radioactive waste. The waste has actually sharpened his other senses, prompting him to use his powers to fight the criminals he can’t stop in his day job. This puts him up against several crime empires, including one run by New York crime boss Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio).

In The Defenders, Daredevil works with a group of New York City street heroes to stop The Hand, an organization of mystical ninjas, from resurrecting the dragons beneath the city. Daredevil sacrifices his life to save the day, but he is later revealed to be alive.

Last year, both Cox and D’Onofrio reprized their respective roles in MCU projects. Cox was Peter Parker’s lawyer in Spider-Man: No Home when he was accused of killing Quentin Beck.

It’s still unclear if the characters are the same as in the Netflix series, but Cox’s upcoming appearance in She-Hulk could clear things up.

The Good Place star Jameela Jameel will play one of the villains in the series.

Since She-Hulk is a comedy series, there will likely be several villains in and out of the courtroom. One of the villains teased in the trailer is Titania, who will be played by The Good Place actress Jameela Jameel.

In the comics, Titania is a superpowered criminal who has come face to face with She-Hulk on numerous occasions because she is obsessed with becoming stronger. This could mean the character will be a recurring villain in the series.

She-Hulk also faces a smaller version of the Wrecking Crew. In the comics, it is the name of a team of super-strong villains, Pest, Thunderball, Piledriver, and Bulldozer, who are accidentally empowered by an enchanted crowbar.

In the She-Hulk trailer, the four villains aren’t as muscular as they are in the comics, but they wield their signature weapon that appears to be enchanted.

The team is usually hired by other criminals, which could mean that they are working for a larger mystery villain.

The series will break the fourth wall like Deadpool.

She-Hulk speaks directly to the audience.


Marvel Studios

While almost all Marvel movies are filled with witty gags, She-Hulk is being described as a comedy series, which could mean the series will be more outlandish than the usual Marvel stories.

In addition, She-Hulk will break the fourth wall and speak directly to the audience, similar to the main characters of “Deadpool” and “Fleabag”.

This image is actually borrowed from the She-Hulk comics, in which Walters often criticizes the authors of the stories.

She-Hulk premieres on Disney+ on Thursday.
