In She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Maslany portrays Jennifer Walters, a successful lawyer living in Los Angeles. While driving with her cousin Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), she encounters a spaceship that sends her car veering off the road. 

The crash leaves Bruce and Jennifer bloody. And when she touches one of his wounds, his blood enters hers and turns her into a hulk. After detailing her backstory, the series follows the superhero’s life as she juggles her career and newfound powers.

At first, Maslany was hesitant to accept the role because she worried about taking on such a massive project. But she ultimately found the challenge enticing. 

“I had always been wary of entering this universe or doing anything of this scale. There’s a part of me that always feels a bit more comfortable in a smaller piece. Just something that I can guarantee will be focused on character, guarantee will be collaborative,” Maslany told Elle.

“[The role] just spoke to me in a way that I was like, ‘I don’t know that I can do this.’ And that’s exciting to me — I don’t know that I was like, ‘I can take everything that comes with this,’ but I definitely was like, ‘This work will be interesting enough to me to warrant a little bit of a shift in my life if that’s what happens. And if not, great.'”
