Court drama meets superhero spectacle – is that possible? Naturally! The series “Daredevil” managed to do that seven years ago, in which Charlie Cox played the blind superhero who, when he’s not fighting villains, works as a lawyer.
Now, She-Hulk, the 18th series set in the Marvel Superhero Universe, turns a lawyer into a reluctant series and superhero (and features a cameo appearance for Charlie Cox). Since Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany from “Orphan Black”) got some of her cousin Bruce Banner’s (Mark Ruffalo) blood in an accident, when she gets angry she transforms like him into a huge green-skinned monster.
But that’s not what makes “She-Hulk” extraordinary, but how important it is for the series to deal with female experiences. For example, when Jennifer Bruce explains why she gets the monster under control much better and faster than he does: “I’m good at controlling my anger. After all, as a woman, I do this all the time. For example, when I am harassed on the street or when incompetent men explain things to me that I know much better than they do.” (Disney+)
