We’re officially less than a month away from the next entry in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, She-Hulk. Ahead of a potential second trailer release at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, fliers promoting the hero’s fictional law firm have been circulating with a curious call to action.
“Super Heroes Need A Super Lawyer,” it reads. “Call Today! 1-877-SHE-HULK”.
The best part about the flier is that the number is real. If you call it, you’re greeted by both Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters and another person who sounds like Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner. However, they are in the middle of rehearsing the actual voicemail message for the law firm.
“You’ve reached the Superhuman Law Division at G, L, K, and H,” the message says at the start. This, of course is a reference to the law firm teased in the first trailer for She-Hulk.
The message contains several Easter eggs poking fun at the carnage caused by the Avengers over the last 14 years in the MCU.: “Have you been fined for 1000s of dollars worth of damage to the city who were trying to protect? Did you accidentally create a sentient robot who got the feels and tried to destroy the world? Maybe you’re an Asgardian god who leaves a giant burning imprint on private property every time you arrive on Earth…”
You can listen to the full message below!
While not the kind of marketing you’d expect, it does a great job at giving fans an idea of the kind of humor the show is going for. Hopefully, we’ll all have a greater taste of it from a potential second trailer soon!
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’s first episode (of nine) will drop on August 17, exclusively on Disney+.
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.
