She-Hulk on Disney+: How to watch it and what you need to know

(Pocket-lint) - Marvel Studios and Disney+ have been smashing it when it comes to small screen adaptations of Marvel[1] comic book heroes. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Moon Knight, Hawkeye, Loki, and, more recently, Ms. Marvel[2] have wowed fans.

Now the studios will be hoping that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law continues the streak.

- Here's how to watch the new show and what you need to know about it.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law release date

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was originally due on Wednesday 17 August 2022 (according to dates shown at the end of trailers). However, it actually premieres on Thursday 18 August 2022 instead, with new episodes appearing each Thursday after.

How many episodes does She-Hulk: Attorney at Law have?

There are nine episodes in She-Hulk season 1.

That matches the amount of episodes in WandaVision, although most of the other Marvel TV series consist of just six episodes.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law plot and rumours

As you can see from the trailers below, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law doesn't take itself too seriously. As with the comic books in the late 80s/early 90s, Jennier Walters/She-Hulk is a little less po-faced than many other superheroes. The series partly deals with her origin - her initial transformation into She-Hulk and her subsequent decision to largely stay in that form, even when representing clients as an attorney.

What we don't know yet is whether the show will mimic her origin story from the comics, whereby Walters gains her abilities after a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner. He is in the show, so perhaps. One major surprise is that Tim Roth's Emil Ronsky / Abomination is in it too.

He first appeared in The Incredible Hulk with Ed Norton playing Banner / The Hulk. Oh, and there'll be an extra special guest too, who appears at the end of the Comic-Con 2022 trailer (see below).

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law cast and crew

The show stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk. Mark Ruffalo reprises his role as Bruce Banner / The Hulk, while Tim Roth returns to the villianous part he played in The Incredible Hulk, Emil Ronsky / Abomination.

Benedict Wong features as Wong: The Sorceror Supreme from the Doctor Strange movies. Most of the episodes have been directed by Kat Coiro, who has also helmed episodes of Modern Family and Single Parents in the past. The others have been helmed by short movie director, Anu Valia.

What to watch before She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

To be honest, there's a mountain of movies and shows to watch if you really want to make sure you are totally up to speed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe before attempting She-Hulk.

You can check out our handy MCU watching order right here[4]. However, if you don't have all the time in the world, the ones we fully recommend as essential are The Incredible Hulk, and the Avengers movies: Marvel's The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: End Game. Basically any of the MCU films with The Hulk in them.

Note, Ang Lee's 2008 movie Hulk is not considered to be part of the timeline.

Is there a She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer?

Marvel Entertainment released the first official trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law in mid-May. You can watch it below. A second trailer was shown during the San Diego Comic-Con in July.

That's also below for you to check out. Make sure you watch it all the way to the end. Writing by Rik Henderson.
