Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is loud, proud, and empowering in the funniest way
Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law continues to be a joyride about a heroine who ‘hulks out’ in between being a high-powered lawyer. The show is nothing like Marvel has ever produced. From establishing Jennifer Walter’s (played by iconic Tatania Malsany) fourth-wall-breaking abilities in episode one to achieving the serene self-actualization of Maximum Goof with plenty of cameos from beloved MCU characters – foremost among them Dr. Strange’s sorcerer Wong (Benedict Wong) and of course Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), the show has allowed itself to become goofier week after week. The series on Disney+ Hotstar in languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and English is empowering in the most hilarious ways.
While the show takes some swipes at the abject ridiculousness of legal issues in a superhero-laden world, it’s hard to tell whether She-Hulk is actually getting funnier or is merely upping its jokes-per-minute quotient. It’s loud, proud, and female-centric, bringing fun cameos, plenty of MCU tie-ins, and many street-level superhero shenanigans.
In the fifth episode, we finally get to see Jameela Jamil in her full element, dawning on the role of Titania, the nemesis of Jennifer Walter. The two coming to the screen with their acting prowess is a defining moment of the episode. Although it doesn’t follow any other physical fights between her and Jennifer Walters, she decides to attack her sneakingly. It will also be interesting to see how Ginger Gonzaga, Jameela Jamil, and Tim Roth pan out as Jennifer Walters navigates her new smashing green persona and her role as a lawyer in the series.
With five episodes in, head writer Jessica Gao and the team have upped the ante regarding action and have built intrigue on what’s to come for Jennifer Walters, leaving us incredibly excited to see what the show has in store in the coming weeks.
