She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been delayed… but thankfully only by a day.
The new Disney+ series was scheduled to begin on August 17, but the premiere will now air on August 18, with the entire nine-episode season seeing release on Thursdays from then on. Disney hasn’t explained the shift.
The announcement was made at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, where Disney also announced premiere dates for Brie Lason’s docu-series Growing Up (September 8), real-world exploration show Epic Adventures with Bertie Gregory (also September 8), Benedict Cumberbatch narratived nature docu-series Super/Natural (September 21), and The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers Season 2 (September 28).
She-Hulk stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, a cousin of Bruce Banner who gains his abilities and attempts to balance her life as a lawyer with the responsibilities of a superhero. A broader comedy than most of the MCU, the show will also include Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong, as well as Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
The show will also see another reintroduction of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, who will be “equal in intellect” with Jennifer Walters, and even seems to include a reference to Ghost Rider. The show will also see fourth wall breaks, but they apparently won’t just be for comedic effect.
