As a Muppet once said, “It’s not easy being green.” So it goes for the giant star of Marvel’s new legal comedy, premiering on Disney+ this week.
There’s an inherent element of silliness that comes with a show called She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, but that’s all part of the fun. Not every superhero film and series has to be a grim, existential depression-fest. This goofy show also wraps up the last small-screen entry in Marvel Studios’ slightly underwhelming Phase 4 offerings.
As seen in trailers, She-Hulk will have a whimsical, fourth wall-breaking tone as Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) balances her days as a legal champion for superhumans against the stranger facets of existence as a green-skinned mutant after getting a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo).
As summer wanes, She-Hulk could be the perfect distraction before school bells start ringing and pigskins begin flying. Let’s lumber into the details and see if it has the potential to be a smashing success.

She-Hulk centers around the tumultuous life of Los Angeles lawyer Jennifer Walters. Following an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, Walters begins to manifest many of his superhuman abilities, including a transformation into a 6’7” green-tinted version of herself. Chaotic tensions between her old self and her mutated version emerge, especially when she takes on the defense case for the monstrous villain Abomination (Tim Roth).
