She-Hulk smash! Bruce Banner's cousin is getting her own Marvel series on Disney Plus — titled She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Tatiana Maslany, the Emmy-winning star of Orphan Black, has been tapped to play Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk, while Jameela Jamil was just cast as villain Titania.
She-Hulk first debuted in the Marvel comic The Savage She-Hulk #1 in February 1980. In those pages, Jennifer Walters is a lawyer who suffers a terrible injury, requiring an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner. That causes her to become a large, powerful, green-hued version of herself, just like The Hulk. However, unlike Bruce, she is able to maintain her personality and emotional control when she transforms — though she is still susceptible to outbursts of rage.
It's just one of the many upcoming Marvel movies and series (we're also excited for Loki season 2), which appears to be the Disney Plus strategy (make as many Marvel shows as we can for when people are done watching the Marvel movies in order)
Here's everything we know so far about She-Hulk.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law release date
Disney has confirmed that She-Hulk will premiere on Disney Plus on August 17. As is usually the case with Disney Plus releases, this is a Wednesday.
She-Hulk will consist of nine half-hour episodes. The show was created by Jessica Gao and episodes will be directed by Kat Coiro and Anu Valia.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer and poster
Disney released the first official trailer and poster for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on May 17. The trailer shows a little about what we can expect from the show, including Walters' having to manage her legal career with the burgeoning superpowers that turn her into a giant green Hulk-like being.
The first poster doesn't reveal a great deal, though the background suggests the show may be set in Los Angeles — the first time the city has shown up since Iron Man 3.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law cast
The cast of She-Hulk is led by Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, a lawyer who gains the ability to transform into the titular green hero.
She is joined by Mark Ruffalo, who is reprising his role as Bruce Banner / The Hulk. He is Jennifer's cousin.
Tim Roth is on board as Emil Blonsky, aka Abomination, a Russian-born former officer in the United Kingdom's Royal Marines Commandos. Blonsky combined super soldier serum and gamma radiation to transform into a humanoid monster more powerful than the Hulk.
Ginger Gonzaga is playing Walters' best friend, while Renée Elise Goldsberry is Amelia (her relationship to the central character is unknown).
Jameela Jamil is also joining the She-Hulk cast as Titania, a rival of She-Hulk with incredible strength. Titania was introduced in Secret Wars No. 3 in 1984. Born Mary MacPherran, she gains super strength after being taken to an alien planet.
Disney has also confirmed that Benedict Wong will reprise his role as Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme and most recently appeared in Doctor Strange 2. Josh Segarra, Jon Bass, Anais Almonte and Nicholas Cirillo have been cast in unknown roles, while wrestler David Otunga appears as in the trailer a guy Walters goes on a date with.
Z-list hero Frog-Man is also confirmed to appear, but it's not been revealed who plays him.

We already know that Wong is set to appear in the show in some capacity, and Abomination previously had a cameo in Shang-Chi's underground fight scene. Whether there will be links to other MCU properties is currently unclear.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige has previously said that She-Hulk is a series that could get multiple seasons.
While discussing She-Hulk and Moon Knight with TV reporters, he said, "Some of the shows that I mentioned that we were about to start filming, we are keeping in mind a structure that would lead into a Season 2, a Season 3, in a more direct way than, say, a show like, like ‘WandaVision,’ which clearly goes into into a feature."
Thankfully, She-Hulk will be easy to find, as Disney Plus is on all of the best streaming devices.
