Whether or not you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is hard to miss the latest updates about their shows and films. While everyone is going gaga over phase four, we have reached the last show of this phase, which is none other than She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Female representation has become a pivotal point lately, and She-Hulk feeds right into it. However, before you begin watching this show, here are some unknown facts about She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Understand The Whole MCU Timeline
Something that can often be confusing is the timeline versus the order of release when it comes to Marvel. This is why it is important to know exactly when a show takes place. The head writer of the show reveals that She-Hulk takes place soon after Avengers: Endgame and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which means the events that occur in this show take place before Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, Ms. Marvel, and Hawkeye.
It is likely that the show will take place sometime in 2024. For better or worse, She-Hulk is less likely to tie up into the whole concept of the multiverse, simplifying things for many viewers.
Jessica Gao is The Creator of She-Hulk
For many people, Jessica Gao is a household name. But those of you who don’t know her yet surely will after watching She-Hulk. Jessica is the head writer and creator of the show. However, this isn’t her first rodeo when it comes to the small screen and comedy.
In fact, she is one of the writers on the infamous show Rick and Morty and has written one of its most popular episodes, “Pickle Rick.” Apart from that, Jessica has also worked on shows like Silicon Valley and Corporate. If you didn’t trust that this show would have some great comedy, we surely hope you do now!
Breaking the fourth wall in She-Hulk
Now, if you are a Marvel veteran, you know this is a big deal. However, if you’re new, here’s a little explanation. One of the most prominent examples of breaking the fourth wall in Marvel was in the famous fan favorite film Deadpool, which happened every time Deadpool looked straight into the camera to address the audience.
It isn’t a widespread occurrence in the MCU. But when it does happen, it truly becomes an important part, giving birth to several theories and easter eggs. As for She-Hulk, she has already broken the fourth wall in the first episode. Possibly, she will continue to do so. This She-Hulk trope dates back to a comic in the 1980s.
Daredevil, Spiderman Villain’s Cameo in She-Hulk
Undoubtedly, the cameos are one of the most anticipated parts of any Marvel film or show. As soon as Marvel announces the release of a project they’re working on, fans begin guessing who might appear in it. And it is only rarely that the MCU disappoints in the cameo department.
One of the most critical cameos will be of Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil. He already made a very brief appearance in the most recent Spider-Man film. However, according to the timeline, his appearance in She-Hulk will take before the events in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Apart from this cameo, some fans are also expecting a Fantastic Four cameo and Wong, who is best known for his role in Doctor Strange films.
Marvel Has Brought Comedy Into Action
Since She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is a part of the MCU and revolves around a new superhero, there will be plenty of action sequences. However, the main genre of this show is comedy. If you have watched the trailer, there is no doubt you have laughed a little already. And that is simply the preview of what’s to come in the following episodes. The creators are playing with a different format for this show, with shorter episodes. In fact, the show has already gained popularity as the first ever comedy series attempted by the MCU.
If you have been following all the Marvel shows and films, there is no doubt this one will be right on top of your watch-list right now. Nevertheless, even if you are a new fan, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law would be a fun starting point to immerse yourself into this Universe!
