With the premiere of the first official trailer for She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulkfans ask the following question, how did the Hulk’s arm recover if his injuries were permanent?
The first official trailer for She-Hulk finally showed Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, in her She-Hulk guise. But she left some unanswered questions for fans, due to a small detail in the scenes where we see Mark Ruffalo’s Smart Hulk.
In the trailer, in the scenes that we see starring Smart Hulk, the total lack of scars on his arm from the use of Iron Man’s nano gauntlet is striking, according to the Russo brothers the damage to the Hulk’s arm was permanent so that we could come to think that the series she hulk It takes place during the five years in which the Earth had lost half of its population after the snap of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity Warwhich would easily explain Bruce Banner’s Smart Hulk form and lack of signs of injury to the green giant’s arm.
However, it can easily be established after Avengers: Endgame. The scene after the credits of shang chiin addition to clearly indicating to us that his story takes place after Endgame, it would explain the healing of Smart Hulk’s arm, since Bruce Banner is seen in his human form with a sling, but there are no signs of his scars on his arm from the use of the gauntlet
Explanation of how her injuries have healed and why She-Hulk is set in the current MCU timeline
So the question that came up is why was she in her human form when Endgame established that returning to her was irreversible? That question, however, was answered by some eagle-eyed fans who could tell that she had a device on her wrist which could be making it easier for Banner to change state. Also transforming into his human form would also have made it easier to perform the blood transfusion that saved his cousin’s life. If his change was irreversible, developing a device that would make him leave the Smart Hulk state makes sense, and it’s something we could see in the new Disney+ series.
However, upon returning to his human form, Banner was able to discover by chance that in that state his wounds did heal, in a way that perhaps the Hulk could not. That is why in She-Hulk we can already see him fully recovered and it would explain his status as Banner in Shang-Chi.
Otherwise, to develop before Avengers: Endgamethe series of Lawyer Hulka It would create another big question to ask. Where did Jennifer Walters go during the final battle against Thanos?
We will leave doubts about all this next August 17 when She-Hulk premieres in Disney+.
