She-Hulk: Tim Roth's return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe


The return of Emil Blonsky, aka Abomination, in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law allowed Tim Roth to work with Mark Ruffalo, the 'second' Hulk of the Marvel Cinematic Univers. As fans of the franchise know, the first to play Bruce Banner was Edward Norton, an actor who did not continue his adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, passing the baton to Ruffalo, who played the Jade Giant for the first time in Avengers (2012). As we saw in the trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Roth will return to play his villain.

In She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Tim Roth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing Abomination

During an interview with Forbes, Tim Roth talked about his experience in playing Abomination again, revealing his feeling of returning to tell a chapter of Hulk's life but without Norton's familiar face.

“I started with 'You've changed!'. It was fun, we got used to spending time together and making fun of each other during shooting breaks, we had a great time. I have a lot of respect for Mark as an actor, so even in these bizarre and fantastic circumstances, it was a precious experience "

“Back on stage, I didn't know what to expect. When we started shooting, I couldn't figure out how to fit into the role, it was quite alienating. Tatiana Maslany is amazing, and She-Hulk is comedy, she's damn good at comedies, but to be honest she's good at everything. When Mark Ruffalo appeared for the part in which I was also involved, and I saw the two of them interrupt, it was a revelatory moment for me, because I thought 'Oh, that's how it's done' and there I realized what I had to do. Essentially, in the first part where the heroes involved, I got some precise directions from them on how to manage our tasks, and then it was all game. It was a lot of fun "

‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Director Says Season 2 Is ‘Definitely a Possibility’

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has yet to premiere on Disney+, but director Kat Coiro is already looking ahead to season 2. While the future of the superhero lawyer comedy is still unclear, Coiro felt positive in a recent interview that She-Hulk’s story could continue if Marvel granted more episodes. Here’s what the director had to say.

Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), a lawyer who specializes in superhuman cases, has no desire to be a superhuman herself. However, when her blood accidentally mixes with her cousin’s, Bruce Banner — a.k.a. the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) — she develops the same green skin and super-strength. Reluctantly, Jennifer must accept training from Bruce to control her strength and become the hero known as She-Hulk.

“Bruce and Jennifer’s dynamic is honestly one of my favorite parts of the series because he comes into it having gone through this very personal journey, and he has a predisposed idea that her experience is going to be exactly the same as his and that he has a lot to teach her,” Coiro recently told Entertainment Weekly. “And very quickly, it becomes clear that her experience is going to be very different, both physically, literally, and mentally because of how they have operated differently in the world as men and women.”

‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ director Kat Coiro says there’s potential for season 2

Unlike many of Marvel’s shows on Disney+, including recent projects Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is not billed as a limited series or miniseries. So, it’s possible Marvel always intended to continue with a second season. As Coiro told EW, that decision is ultimately up to Marvel head Kevin Feige. However, she assured that She-Hulk will have enough of a story to continue.

“There is definitely the possibility of having a second season. There’s also the possibility of the character joining the other characters in the movies. I have no idea,” she said.

Additionally, Coiro expressed confidence that fans will want to see more.

“Watching Bruce and Jen, She-Hulk and He-Hulk interact, you’re definitely going to want to see more of their dynamic together,” she added. “It’s a really playful big-brother-little-sister dynamic that has a lot of depth to it, and people are definitely going to want to see more of that in the future.”

Marvel recently unveiled the plans for MCU Phase 5 and Phase 6

If Marvel chooses to keep She-Hulk going, the show may need to fit into the plans for Phase 5 and Phase 6 of the MCU. Those plans were unveiled this month at San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel has quite a few projects in store for the next few years, including Echo, Blade, Loki Season 2, The Marvels, and much more. The plans for Phase 5 and Phase 6 run all the way to November 2025 with Avengers: Secret Wars.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres on Aug. 18, with new episodes dropping every Thursday on Disney+.
