It looks like Marvel Studios is getting a new release slot, or at least She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is. In the latest promo for the upcoming Disney+ series, it was revealed that it won’t be released on August 17th but on August 18th instead. This is the first time a Marvel project will release on Thursday since Loki set the new Wednesday standard. It seems like they are starting to experiment and have learned their lesson with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ms. Marvel being overshadowed due to two of their biggest franchises releasing on the same day.
Andor was already pushed back by three weeks making many think they may have done so to give She-Hulk some leg room, but it may also be just to give that show some time. They are testing out the release window with Thursday and potentially set up whatever release date will belong to what franchise. Friday’s already became their film release window and it’s always great to see streaming services adapt over time.
She-Hulk is one of Marvel Studios’ most ambitious shows, as it will introduce a fully CG character as its lead, who will be on screen for a considerable amount of time. While reactions to the CG early on have been a bit questionable, the recent teases have shown that the work has improved quite a bit and it does continue to look like they are embracing more unique concepts with these shows. With Daredevil: Born Again breaking the six-episode structure, we might be seeing Marvel Studios taking its lessons moving forward.
