Marvel Studios wowed fans on Saturday with a massive Hall H presentation teasing everything in the near-future, and everything yet to come. One of the titles briefly teased by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk. The actress was also on hand to promote the Disney+ series and took some time to talk with the press following the panel.
For Maslany, who led Orphan Black for five seasons, signing on to She-Hulk wasn’t necessarily the easiest decision. As she told MTV News, she wasn’t exactly looking to get into any big titles. However, when she actually read the script, she realized how unique the project was. “For me, I’ve avoided doing big things because I’m afraid of that size of world. But when I read the pilot for the audition, I was like, this is so funny and so different than anything I’ve read, and like, if this weren’t Marvel, I would wanna do it. Do you know I want I mean? It was just the characters, and the writing was so weird and funny.”
Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, had been teased to appear in She-Hulk for quite some time. However, yesterday’s trailer was the first confirmation fans received of his appearance. And like the fans, Maslany was just as excited to see his cameo in the trailer, despite knowing Cox would appear. “That was a really fun little bit,” the actress teased.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law consists of nine half-hour episodes and will debut on Disney+ on August 17th. Like with other Disney+ shows, She-Hulk will release one episode a week.
