It’s August, which can mean only one thing: It’s time for She-Hulk to smash our screens! Getting a She-Hulk project was almost unimaginable a few years ago. But now that’s about to release, fans are super excited to see how this TV series will explore the superhero.
So what details have been disclosed to us so far? I’ve put them all together for your perusal!
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will release on Disney+ on August 18, following Jennifer Walters who has Hulk-like powers and must balance being a new superhero and an attorney.
Here are some more specifics to get into:
1. Release Date, Episode Count, and Schedule
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will debut on Disney+ on August 18. There will be nine episodes in total (yes, this is a relatively longer Marvel-Disney+ series), with one new episode being released every week. The last episode will air on October 13.

Legal comedy is not a genre you hear of often, but apparently She-Hulk will make good on that. I expect nothing less from a character who’s known to hilariously break the fourth wall.
The trailer tells us that the rise of more supernaturally enhanced beings is causing a lot of chaos in the world, due to which a new legal division has to be put into place. Jennifer Walters is brought in to handle this department, not for her expertise but because she too can get green and bulky like her cousin, Bruce Banner.
Of course, even with all the training she’ll get from Bruce, she’s about to figure out that becoming a superhero is no easy feat. But she must rise to the occasion!
3. Cast and Characters
While certain shows like Moon Knight scarcely mentioned the MCU, She-Hulk will firmly plant itself in this universe. As such, you’re going to see a lot of familiar faces in this series, as well as some new ones, and perhaps, even some surprise cameos.
Once again, here’s a table to make things easier:
|Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk||Tatiana Maslany|
|Bruce Banner / Smart Hulk||Mark Ruffalo|
|Emil Blonsky / Abomination||Tim Roth|
|Nikki Ramos||Ginger Gonzaga|
|Mallory Book||Renée Elise Goldsberry|
|Matt Murdock / Daredevil||Charlie Cox|
4. Trailers and Poster
When the first She-Hulk teaser came out, fans were thoroughly disappointed with the subpar CGI Work. Thankfully the full-length trailer, which was released during San Diego Comic Con ‘22, corrects that and gives us quite a clear picture of what we can expect.
We get a snippet of Jennifer and Bruce’s relationship, and even an array of villains including the Abomination and Titania. Surprisingly, it also spoils cameos from characters like Wong and Daredevil. One can only wonder if the show has any other appearances up its sleeve.
Here are some character posters that have been cleverly put across as advertisements for Jennifer’s attorney services:
