‘She-Hulk’ To Consist Of 9 Episodes, Wong Returning As Key Character

On top of releasing the very first trailer for the highly anticipated Marvel/Disney+series She-Hulk, Attorney At Law, in a press release put out by the streamer, it was also revealed that the official episode count has changed.

Originally, the series was believed to consist of 10 half hour episodes. Now, according to Disney+, it looks like the series will only consist of 9. It’s also unclear whether or not each episode will still be about half hour long or if the lengths will vary similar to WandaVision.

Kat Coiro will direct episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, and 9, while Anu Valia will direct episode 5, 6, and 7. Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty) will serve as the series’ sole writer.

In the release, it was also revealed that Wong will return and star in the series. It’s unclear how many episodes he’ll appear in, but billed alongside other major characters.

It’s not entirely surprising that the new Sorcerer Supreme is slated to return. After all, Tim Roth’s Abomination seemed to be under tutelage the last time he appeared in Shang-Chi. Will their relationship continue to be explored in the series? Perhaps the series is the reason for them crossing paths in the first place. Because we don’t know when the series takes place, it’s hard to tell whether or not it’ll explain Wong’s whereabouts between Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness either. We’ll just have to wait and see.

She-Hulk, Attorney At Law will follow Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters as she juggles being a lawyer and a superhero with powers similar to The Hulk. In the comics, Walters develops superhuman strength and transforms into a milder version of The Hulk after receiving a blood transfusion from Bruce Banner, her cousin. It remains to be seen whether or not the show will follow that storyline, or if it will introduce Maslany’s character post-procedure.

In addition to Maslany. Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth will reprise their role as the Hulk and Abomination respectively. The series will also star Ginger Gonzaga (Space Force), Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Josh Segarra (Arrow), and Jon Bass (Baywatch).

The show will stream on August 17, exclusively on Disney+.
