She-Hulk Video Parodies Law & Order In Hilarious Marvel Show Clip

Marvel Studios shares a featurette that parodies Law & Order, highlighting the legal procedural element of the MCU series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

A new promo for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law presents a pitch-perfect parody of Law & Order. She-Hulk is the latest Disney+ series from Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which began with the premiere of WandaVision in January 2021 and will end with this November’s release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, kicking off the franchise’s Multiverse Saga. The nine-episode season of the series, which was created by Jessica Gao, will premiere on August 18, 2022 and run weekly through October 13, 2022.

Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany will play the titular heroine, a superhero-defending attorney named Jennifer Walters who develops Hulk powers thanks to her cousin, Bruce Banner. The show will follow her attempting to balance dating with her new powers while also succeeding in her career, which will eventually force her to face off against the villain Titania (Jameela Jamil). As the She-Hulk marketing campaign continues to rev up as its release date fast approaches, the show’s lawyer inspirations are getting the spotlight as Marvel playfully pokes at one of the most famous TV dramas of all-time.

Marvel Studios shared a brand-new featurette highlighting She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. It begins with a pitch perfect parody of the introductory speech at the beginning of episodes of Law & Order, explaining that “the people are protected by two separate but equally important groups,” namely superheroes and the attorneys who clean up after them. This is followed by the disembodied voice copying the show’s signature “Dun Dun” noise. The featurette is then jam-packed with clips featuring She-Hulk hard at work on various cases, while the creators explain their various inspirations for the series, including the legal comedy Ally McBeal and the drama The Practice. Check out the video below:


While it’s obviously just a joke that the promo is referencing Law & Order, the full video does reveal that the idea of She-Hulk being a proper legal show was never far from the minds of the creators. While it will subvert those tropes in humorous and action-packed ways, this promo highlights more than ever before just how much of the show will actually take place inside the courtroom. If anything, this looks more like a superpowered update of Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer than just another comic book series.

This vibe is certainly in keeping with the fact that the Disney+ wing of the MCU has proven to be the place where Marvel is really open to experimenting and pursuing different tones and approaches to the material. WandaVision was similarly able to experiment with format, combining sitcom pastiche with a Lynchian unknowable terror for the first half of its run, and shows like Moon Knight and this summer’s Ms. Marvel have tailored their shows’ aesthetics and sensibilities around the characters at the center without relying on too much connectivity to the Marvel universe at large. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is obviously embracing its Marvel lineage in a much more clear-cut way than those series, but it is obviously also drawing inspiration from their fearless approach to being different from what regular Marvel viewers may expect.
