She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is now streaming on Disney+, with the first episode releasing exclusively on the service. Not only is this a monumental series when it comes to a Hulk getting their own project for the first time since 2008, but She-Hulk also represents a major moment in the MCU with another woman in a starring role, along with plenty of other diversity to boot.
Tatiana Maslany, known to sci-fi fans as the star of Orphan Black, makes her MCU debut as the title character, alongside returning actor Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo has been a Marvel mainstay ever since his first appearance in 2012’s The Avengers.
