A new premiere date and rollout for Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” was announced Wednesday during the streamer’s presentation at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
Instead of debuting on the originally announced premiere date of Wednesday, August 17, “She-Hulk” will premiere on Thursday, August 18. The nine-episode comedy series will then roll out weekly on Thursdays, marking a change in strategy.
The move marks Disney+’s continued expansion of its programming schedule. While certain blockbuster series such as “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” “Ms. Marvel” and “The Book of Boba Fett” debuted new episodes on Wednesdays, Season 2 of “The Mandalorian” delivered new chapters on Fridays, a day Netflix has long dominated with its own binge of new releases. “She-Hulk” will be the first Marvel series to release new episodes on Thursdays.
Tatiana Maslany explains why “She-Hulk” is the “antithesis” of typical MCU stories
In “She-Hulk,” Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) — a lawyer specializing in superhuman trials — must navigate the complicated life of a single 30-year-old who also happens to be a green, 6-foot-7-inch super-powered Hulk. The series will welcome a number of MCU veterans, including Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/Abomination, and Benedict Wong as Wong. The series’ trailer also hinted at Charlie Cox’s Daredevil making an appearance following his re-introduction to the MCU in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
“She-Hulk” also stars Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. The series was directed by Kat Coiro (episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9) and Anu Valia (episodes 5, 6, 7) with Jessica Gao as the main writer. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Coiro and Gao.
