Marvel fans need wait no longer to get their glimpse at Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk. As a bonus, the trailer also reveals how Smart-Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Abomination (Tim Roth) fit into the Disney+ series. Disney+ released the first trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, premiering Aug. 17.
Smart-Hulk can’t contain his protege
When Jennifer Walters (Maslany) first acquires her powers, she goes to Bruce Banner (Ruffalo)’s lab. Bruce is still in his Smart-Hulk appearance from Avengers: Endgame. While in the lab, Jennifer sees Emil Blonsky (Roth) sitting in a cell. Blonsky became Abomination in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk and Abomination appeared again in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. That’s just the beginning of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
Smart-Hulk is trying to teach Jennifer to harness her rage powers, but she uses them to break free of his containment cell. Then Jennifer continues to conduct her law practice, and dating life, as She-Hulk.
Smart Hulk is more than a cameo in ‘She Hulk: Attorney at Law’
Judging by his screen time in the trailer, Smart Hulk will be more involved in the series than just a cameo. Granted, most of his scenes take place in the lab, teaching Jennifer, which could all take place in the first episode. But, both Ruffalo and Roth filmed She-Hulk so don’t be surprised if they take part in a lot of the episodes. Chances are, that cage won’t contain Blonsky either.
‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ is much more functional than her male counterpart
After getting the plot out of the way, the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer shows how much fun the show can have with Jennifer in her Hulked out appearance. One action scene occurs in a courtroom, where Jennifer has presumably continued to practice law. Why should she put her career on hold just because she hulks out? Fans also admire her Hulked out form.
But, the most fun part of the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer is a dating montage. Now, we’ve seen this scene before in lots of romantic comedies. The heroine has to cycle through a montage of bad dates. Her added celebrity in the MCU makes it even harder to parse through guys’ real motivations to see her.
When Jennifer meets one man who admires her She-Hulkiness, Jennifer takes him home. In a reversal of the classic love scene iconography, Jennifer carries him to bed, towering over him in her green form.
