She-Hulk TV Show Trailer Just Gonna Arrive on a Tuesday Evening Like This

The first trailer for the upcoming She-Hulk TV show just appeared before us today and it looks pretty cool. I’ll warn you that the CGI looks wonky as all hell. But the sense of humor and style the show’s going to have look really good to me!

I’m looking forward to She-Hulk like I look forward to all Marvel shows. I’m a sucker for these things. I would love nothing more than to get an actual legal/lawyer show that just so happens to include She-Hulk and superhero stuff. I don’t need some serialized adventure like typical Marvel shows, with one story spread out over all the episodes. Just do a regular law show starring She-Hulk!

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law comes to Disney+ on Aug. 17.

Rainbow Rowell is Writing a She-Hulk Comic!

Brace yourselves, a new She-Hulk series is coming, and you best believe it’s going to be a humdinger! There have been plenty of She-Hulk comics over the years, and I’ve enjoyed most of them just fine. But I am particularly excited about this new one because writer Rainbow Rowell is going to be the wordsmith! Rowell blew me away with her work on The Runaways comic over the past several years, easily one of my favorite recent comics from Marvel. I was very sad when that comic came to an end.

Now I’m very happy that Rowell is sticking with Marvel and is tackling a character like She-Hulk! With art by Rogê Antônio.

I am very excited to get my hands on a new Rainbow Rowell comic and I think she’ll have a lot of fun with She-Hulk. She’s apparently taking the character back to basics, wherein Jennifer Walters juggles being a superhero and a lawyer. That sounds fine by me. I haven’t been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers comic, wherein She-Hulk is more of a brute-type Hulk, so I have no problem with shifting the character.

“She-Hulk is the best of the best,” Rowell said. “She’s smart, she’s funny — and she’s really and truly heroic (all that and she has the best hair in comics). Jen has always been at the top of my Marvel wishlist, and I’m thrilled to be writing her next chapter.”

The new series is coming in January, and you best believing I’ll be buying!

Tatiana Maslany to Play She-Hulk!

Crazy big Marvel casting news arrived yesterday in that Tatiana Maslany will play Jennifer Walters and She-Hulk in the upcoming Disney+ show! That’s awesome! Everybody agreed that Maslany was great in Orphan Black, so I’m excited for her as She-Hulk!

This will definitely require a ton of courtroom scenes

The She-Hulk show is set to start filming early next year, so that’s cool. I’m confident they will go with a full CGI/mo-cap look for actual She-Hulk, just like with Professor Hulk in Endgame. These are TV shows gifted with MCU budget, so they’ll make it happen and they’ll make it look great! Disney has every reason in the world to go full speed ahead on making these Marvel shows a must-see for Disney+.

For example, here’s hoping we get that Mark Ruffalo/Hulk cameo! They’ve got to do it, right? There’s no way he skips out on making a quick appearance or two.

Now we go back to waiting patiently for them to cast Kamala Khan!

A Metric Ton of New Information on the Avengers Video Game

Crystal Dynamics held a big event yesterday for their upcoming Avengers video game, and they included a metric ton of videos and new information. We’ve now got our biggest and best looks yet at gameplay and story. It all looks pretty great!

Let’s start with a story trailer.

So it looks like the villain is going to be M.O.D.O.K. and he’s going to create an army of Super Adaptoid robots who will be empowered with Inhuman powers — the better to provide a ton of powerful robots to beat up. The story seems simple enough. It’s the rest of the game that’s apparently going to be really cool.

And here’s some additional pure gameplay footage of Thor.

So let’s see. It looks like there’s going to be a lot of battling super-powered robots, with some classic comic villains thrown in. I’ve seen Abomination in at least one of these trailers. And we know Taskmaster is in the game somewhere.

It looks like base building is going to be a part of the game, as we’ll need to “rebuild the helicarrier”. And we knew outfit and gear management was going to be a thing, allowing us to customize the look and loadout of our superheroes.

Here’s a longer video even. Some stuff might be repeated.

These videos definitely make me more excited about the game than I was before. It definitely does not appear to be as ‘on rails’ as I’ve been fearing. But I’m also not entirely sure this game is going to be much more than going out to a location and beating up a seemingly endless supply of faceless, nameless robots. But hell, maybe that will be awesome. I know I’ll probably really enjoy the costume/loadout aspect of the game, and the base building. The story looks like it’ll be pretty pure Marvel superheroics, so that’s fine.

And there’s plenty of room for expansion. They’ve already said they’re going to bring in new superheroes over time, like Ant-Man. And surely if this is an ongoing game that live updates over time, there will be other stories. Maybe season 2 will be Galactus or Skrulls or something.

Suffice to say, this is our best look yet at the game, and it looks bigger and better than anything we’ve seen about it before. I’m pretty satisfied with all of this.

The game is due out on Sept. 4…just in time for my birthday!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/17/19

Pretty solid week for comics this week, everybody! Some of my favorites, like Go Go Power Rangers and Fantastic Four drop, with Powers of X rolling right along. The new issue this week is Gwenpool Strikes Back, which I have high hopes for — though it might not compare with the original series.

At any rate, Comic Book of the Week goes to Unbeatable Squirrel Girl as it kicks off its final storyline with real style and real stakes! Ryan North apparently isn’t going to mess around this time. Shit just got real!

Say it ain’t so, Squirrel Girl!

Meanwhile, I was thinking of reviewing the Scream tie-in to Absolute Carnage, but it wasn’t much of an issue, so I’ll just sum it up here: It was fine. It was a little confusing, but it was fine. Far more exciting was the third issue of Event Leviathan from DC Comics! Bendis is killing it with this event, which features some phenomenal character work. I haven’t enjoyed the Red Hood this much in years, and the cliffhanger ending is a spine-tinglingly cool Superman moment!

Comic Reviews: Fantastic Four #13, Go Go Power Rangers #22, Gwenpool Strikes Back #1, Powers of X #2 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #47.
