While Deadpool can be headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future, Jennifer Walters and her tendency to break the fourth wall are coming to the MCU with the Disney+ original series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Thursday, Aug. 18. As the cast and crew would really like to remind audiences, She-Hulk possessed that comedic feel of self-attention long before Deadpool made it his defining feature.
Attorney at Law, Hasan Mohammed from the Geek House Show requested the cast and crew of the Disney+ series about She-Hulk’s ability to break the fourth wall and cope with the audience. Series director and executive producer Kat Coiro reiterated that the person broke the fourth wall in the comics long before Deadpool or the British tv series Fleabag.

“If you know anything about She-Hulk the character, you would recognize that she [did that],” confirmed series creator, showrunner, and executive producer Jessica Gao. Series star Tatiana Maslany jokingly discovered that “Deadpool copied She-Hulk,” with the gamma-radiated superhero breaking the fourth wall long before the Merc with a Mouth.
During John Byrne’s 1989 run on The Sensational She-Hulk, the character could frequently destroy the fourth wall and talk to the reader about the court cases in the story. Trailers have confirmed this character trait is retained in Attorney at Law, with Maslany feeling this trope helps underscore who Jennifer Walters is as a character.
She hulk Tatiana Maslany comments on her character
I think that there may be some thing about She-Hulk’s awareness. Where she’s able to go from being Jen to She-Hulk with a seamlessness. Her consciousness remains the same, and she’s aware of the audience. That feels like it is her superpower engaged with the meta detail of the [show],” Maslany elaborated, “It’s like an extension of her superpower, she’s like, ‘I know I’m, talking to a camera. I know you guys are watching this.’ And there may be some thing about that tremendous hyper-awareness that is [a part of] who she is.”
Bringing her personal unique perspective to the MCU, Jennifer Walters is ready to share her innermost thoughts with the audience in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. And with lots of guest stars and factors of the MCU explored at the show, Jen is going to have plenty to speak about.
to me, it felt as hard as anything could be” to play attorney Jennifer “Jen” Walters/She-Hulk, Maslany stated in a video call with The Chronicle. “I am doing comedy for the first time, and on kind of a huge stage. It’s now no longer like a small indie comedy (where) I can sort of figure out what that is. It is a huge degree to tackle that idea.” Like “Ms. Marvel,” “She Hulk’s” creative team is also woman-led. But although Maslany stated she “takes special note of sets that are being built in that way,” she is not prepared to proclaim victory in the fight for equity.
