She-Hulk: The Lawyer’s new trailer shows star Tatiana Maslany adjusting to balancing her newfound powers with legal acumen
There’s a new green superhero headed to the Marvel-verse, and her name is Jennifer Walters, an everyday lawyer, crime fighter at night or at any time.
36-year-old Tatsiana Maslany starred in the main character of the Disney+ series.
A new trailer for the action comedy was released Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.

At a panel discussion for the show, the Canadian actress, best known for her many clone roles on Orphan Black, said the character is not a typical superhero.
“What’s so exciting about She-Hulk is that it’s a completely different show. This is irreverent humor. The Hulk is trying not to be a superhero.”
The trailer begins with a sleeping Jennifer being awakened by a buzzer used by her cousin, the Hulk.

Jennifer received her superpowers after a life-saving blood transfusion from Bruce Banner. The Avenger tries to help her cousin adjust to the changes that will come her way, and the result is a humorous “what you can do, I can do better” contest of strength.
With her newly acquired powers and 6’7″ height, Jennifer longs to return to her days as an anonymous lawyer, but instead she becomes much more famous and is hired by a firm that specializes in cases involving superhumans.
The trailer gives a glimpse of who Jeanne-Hulk will be up against, including Jamila Jamil as Titania, a super-powered rival, and Tim Roth as bad guy Abomination. Benedict Wong reprises his role as Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme from the Doctor Strange franchise.
