First there was Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), then the Falcon and the Winter Soldier (played by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, respectively) — then Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), and Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani). Now, there is Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany).

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is the latest Marvel Studios series for Disney+, premiering on Aug. 17. Watch a trailer for the series, below.

Centering on Jennifer, Bruce Banner's (Mark Ruffalo) cousin, the series explores how Jennifer handles the powers she inherits from her cousin after receiving his blood through a transfusion. While Bruce is known for "hulking out" and becoming a different person in size, stature, and temperament, Jennifer is said to retain most of her personality, intelligence, and emotional control.

Maybe that's because women have had centuries of conditioning to control their emotions. As Bruce tells her, "The transformations are triggered by anger and fear," to which she replies, "Those are like the baseline of any woman just existing."

But that's not to say it's easy on her. Jennifer has a lot on her plate already, between her group of friends and family, and her demanding law job, where they just opened a division on superhumans. And now she is faced with feeling like she is going to die if she doesn't transform — and presenting as green after she does.

"I just want to be a normal, anonymous lawyer," Jennifer says. "I'm not a superhero. That is for billionaires and narcissists."

But she becomes the story nonetheless.

In addition to Maslany, the series stars Jameela Jamil, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jon Bass, Benedict Wong, and Tim Roth. The nine-episode series comes from head writer and executive producer Jessica Gao and executive producer and director Kat Coiro. Anu Valia also directs. Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Coiro, and Gao executive produce, with Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth serving as co-executive producers.
