With less than a month to go until Disney+ & Marvel Studios’ Tatiana Maslany-starring She-Hulk: Attorney at Law gets ready to smash its way onto our screens, the fine folks at the streamer and studio have come up with some “meta” fun to help get viewers in the mood for what’s to come. If you haven’t checked it out yet on social media (or if you’re actually attending the event), then the backstory is that there are posters for the streaming series circulating like they’re ads for Jen’s law firm. But if you call 1-877-SHE-HULK, you will be treated to… well, you know what? We’ll avoid the spoilers (but it’s worth the call). But just in case…
If you don’t want to have a little fun on a Friday, here’s a listen to the recording that social media was kind enough to provide:
During a recent interview with Empire, Maslany shared why Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk was the right kind of comic book character for her to play on a relatable basis. “She really is the antithesis of most superhero narratives. There’s this great element of denial in her that’s relatable. For me, it was about rejecting what’s happened for as long as I could, as that’s what causes the fun tension between Jennifer and She- Hulk,” Maslany explained. But there’s also the matter of how Walters’ new “superheroing” will add to the all-too-real tensions she’s already feeling at her law firm. “She’s in a career that’s male-dominated and incredibly vicious and hierarchal,” Maslany explains. “When she’s heading this superhuman firm, that’s where we get some really fun characters that she’s either defending or in opposition of. It’s like this really absurd take on a legal show.”
To help prepare for the role, Maslany immersed herself in She-Hulk’s comic book backstory and had co-star Mark Ruffalo (no stranger to being green) assists when it comes to the on-screen heroics. “We were so goofy, like two kids who had been handed shovels by our parents and told to go and play in the sandbox,” Maslany revealed. But Maslany also found inspiration in the late musician Sophie, adding, “I always come back to Sophie, who’s this amazing trans artist who lamented died last year. What I love about Sophie’s music is this combo of organic and electrical, industrial-type sounds that felt connected to She-Hulk.”
“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk.
Joining Maslany in the Marvel Studios & Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is Jameela Jamil as Titania, a Marvel supervillain with incredible strength and a frequent rival of Jennifer’s, Ginger Gonzaga (Kidding) as Walters’ best friend, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Josh Segarra, Jon Bass, Anais Almonte, Nicholas Cirilloand Griffin Matthews. in addition, Mark Ruffalo reprises his role as Bruce Banner/Smart Hulk, Team Roth (Reservoir Dogs) returns as Emil Blonsky aka The Abomination, and Benedict Wong returns as Wong. Emmy award-winner Jessica Gao (Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty) leads the writers’ room & executive produces, with Kat Coiro executive producing and directing the pilot & additional episodes (E02-E04; E08; E09) of the legal comedy along with Anu Valia (E05-E07). Coiro, Gao, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonsoand Brad Winderbaum executive produce, with Wendy Jacobson & Jennifer Booth co-executive producing.
