She-Hulk Writers Actually Just Admitted It…

TheQuartering [10/17/2022]

According to BroBible:

Considering that the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk is subtitled “Attorney at Law”, it would have been fair for fans to assume that the show would include plenty of Aaron Sorkin-esque courtroom scenes, right? Well, as the late, great Charlie Murphy once said, “…Wrong! Wrong!”

During a recent interview with Variety, Jessica Gao — the series’ head writer — said that their original pitch to Disney and Marvel involved a multi-episode trial of Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky, a.k.a. Abomination.

That idea was ultimately scrapped, however, because Gao and her team apparently realized that they weren’t “adept at writing rousing trial scenes,” which is a pretty shocking admission to make about your upcoming attorney-focused show.

The first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premiered on Disney+ on Thursday, August 18, and will continue to air new episodes on Thursdays through October 13.

Personally, I didn’t check out my She-Hulk screeners until the last day they were available prior to the review embargo lifting. Not sure if that speaks to overall MCU apathy or lack of interest in the project itself. That said the series is fun/charming enough and an enjoyable, tongue-in-cheek, meta change of pace for the franchise and gets off to a surprisingly solid start.
