We will be meeting Jennifer Walters who leads a complicated life as a single attorney and also happens to be the She-Hulk.
There's a new badass attorney in town and it's probably best if you don't make her angry.
In the newest Marvel series, we will be meeting Jennifer Walters, played by Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) who leads a complicated life as a single attorney in her 30s, and also becomes the 6-foot-7, green superhero She-Hulk. This series, titled: She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe in continuation with the films and is also a part of Phase Four of the MCU. The first trailer of this nine-part series was released showing how Jennifer navigates her life with her superhuman strength.
In the trailer, we are reunited with Bruce Banner aka the Hulk who laments about the hardships of being a superhero. "Being a superhero is a trial by fire," he states. "Who’s gonna protect the world if not people like you?" Jennifer gets her powers after an injury leads to an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner. She ends up acquiring a milder version of his Hulk condition. In the series, we will dive into the world of superhuman-oriented legal cases that Jennifer, a lawyer specializing in this, will handle. "We just started a superhuman law division," her boss tells her, "and I want you to be the face of it."
We see Bruce as Smart Hulk guiding Jennifer through the process of turning into the She-Hulk. "The transformations are triggered by anger and fear," he tells her. To this Jennifer retorts, "Those are like the baseline of any woman just existing." We see her fame rise in the public eye and when her friend Nikki tells her she could be an Avenger, Jennifer says: "Oh, I'm not a Super Hero. That is for billionaires and narcissists," before adding, "And adult orphans for some reason." We also see She-Hulk's dating life and her wish to be a "normal, anonymous lawyer."
