It's not easy being green in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So far, Kermit the Frog — the OG source of that nugget of wisdom — hasn't made the leap into the sprawling big- and small-screen franchise; however, the MCU's emerald-hued characters have still faced their struggles. Bruce Banner aka the Hulk is one. Guardians of the Galaxy's Gamora is another. Thanks to Spider-Man: No Way Home, the Green Goblin fits, too. And now, so does Jennifer Walters — who's about to be know to Disney+ viewers as She-Hulk.

The premise of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is right there in its name. Walters (Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black, Perry Mason) is a lawyer newly specialising in superhuman law. After an experiment by Banner (Mark Ruffalo, Dark Waters, I Know This Much Is True), she's soon turning green when she's scared and angry. As the just-dropped trailer for the new MCU show points out, those two emotions "are the baseline for any woman just existing" — and how that plays out will be covered when the new series hits your streaming queue from August 17.

If your memory of TV extends back to the late 90s and early 00s, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law should give you big Ally McBeal vibes — but with superheroes instead of Calista Flockhart and dancing babies. Walters' work life, her efforts to balance being an attorney and being She-Hulk, her dating experiences: they're all covered in the initial sneak peek, as is sitting around chatting about everything with her best pal (Ginger Gonzaga, Kidding) over drinks.

As it explores what it's like to be a single thirtysomething attorney who is also a green six-foot-seven-inch hulk — you know, that old chestnut — the show's nine-episode first season will also feature familiar MCU faces in the form of Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) as Wong and Tim Roth (Bergman Island) as Emil Blonsky/the Abomination.

Rounding out the cast is a heap of recent sitcom standouts: Josh Segarra (The Other Two), Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), Jon Bass (Miracle Workers) and Renée Elise Goldsberry (Girls5eva). And, behind the lens, Kat Coiro (Marry Me) and Anu Valia (And Just Like That...) share directing duties across the season, with Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty) as head writer.

When She-Hulk: Attorney at Law arrives in August, it'll be the latest dose of Marvel mania in what's proving to be a huge MCU year. It follows Moon Knight and the soon-to-drop Ms Marvel on streaming, then Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder in cinemas.
