There is less to go until the premiere of ‘She-Hulk: Lawyer Hulka’, the next Marvel series that will take over from ‘Ms. Marvel’ and introduce us to a new superheroine. The leading actress has already advanced that the series has nothing to do with everything that has been seen before in the MCU.
Lawyer and superhero
While in ‘Ms. Marvel’ we have a perfect example of superpowers that come to someone who has been wanting them all his life, in ‘She-Hulk’ we have a character who does not want to become a superhero. Tatiana Maslany (‘Orphan Black’), the actress in charge of giving life to Jennifer Walters (AKA Hulka) affirms that it will be something new in relation to the rest of comic adaptations:
She is definitely the antithesis of most superhero narratives. There is a considerable degree of denial in it. For me, it was about rejecting what’s happened to her for as long as possible and that’s what causes such a funny tension between her and She-Hulk.
In the series, Walters is a lawyer who will obtain superpowers that she has not asked for and one of her main fears will be how can that affect your career as a lawyer:
He is in a mainly masculine, fierce and hierarchical race. When she is put in charge of this superhuman company, that is where many funny characters appear that she defends or opposes. It’s like a really wacky version of a legal show.
Maslany also comments how well he has hit it off with Mark Ruffalo and how he has sought inspiration for his role in music from Sophie, one of his favorite artists, sadly deceased.
(Mark and I) were very silly, like two kids with shovels who were told by their parents to go play in the sandbox (…) What I love about Sophie’s music is the combination of organic and electric sounds of industrial type, which reminded me of She-Hulk.
‘She-Hulk: Lawyer Hulka’ plans premiere on August 17 on Disney+.
