Disney+’s She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Has Screened, See What People Are Saying About Tatiana Maslany’s New MCU Series

Disney+’s latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 will see the first live-action portrayal of Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk, and who better to lead the way as the superstrong green-skinned cousin of Bruce Banner than Tatiana Maslany, the phenomenal star from Orphan Black? The first four episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the first of which will be available to Disney+ subscribers on August 18, were screened at the premiere, and those who were able to catch an early viewing have taken to Twitter with their thoughts on Disney+’s latest MCU project.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law centers around Jennifer Walters, a single, 30-something attorney specializing in superhuman law, who seeks help from her cousin Bruce Banner (a.k.a. The Hulk, a.k.a. Mark Ruffalo) to help her navigate the life of transforming into a 6-foot-7 green superhero. The Marvel series also stars Good Place alum Jameela Jamil as MCU villain Titania, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Tim Roth, Benedict Wong and more. So what did people think of the first portion of Disney+’s She-Hulk?
