She-Hulk: Attorney At Law: Characters To Appear In Season One
The Marvel train just keeps on chugging, and the next stop for the studio is the Disney+ TV series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Announced back in August 2019, filming on the show began in April last year and is scheduled to make a smash on the streaming platform on August 17.
Although there’s less than a month before Marvel fans get to sample the wares, they’ll have to wait until October 12 to see how it ends. As has become the trend with highly-anticipated series, the nine episodes are added one at a time.
Bodog regulars will already know that we’re Marvel-mad, so naturally we are all over the She-Hulk premiere. To celebrate the upcoming release of this new show, we’ve been examining the She-Hulk betting odds to predict which characters from the universe we can expect to appear across the nine episodes.
Of course, we know that She-Hulk and Jennifer Walters, who will be played by the talented Tatiana Maslany (of eerie clone-themed mystery series, Orphan Black), will feature heavily in the show, as will Jameela Jamil’s Titania, She-Hulk’s rival, and Nikki Ramos (played by Finger Gonzaga) as one of Walters’ best friends.
However, as is typical for new MCU TV shows and movies, we can expect plenty of (thus far) unannounced appearances and cameos of characters from the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. This creates another exciting opportunity for those interested in Marvel betting.
Mister Immortal (-1000)
At odds of -1000, Mister Immortal is the standout favourite for appearing in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
He’s been a part of the Marvel universe since July 1989, when he made his debut appearance in West Coast Avengers. He has a tragic back story involving the death of his father and foster sister, but it was during these events that Mister Immortal discovered he could not die.
Mister Immortal has made appearances alongside Hulk in the past, though they aren’t frequent enough to justify the -1000 odds. Instead, they are so short because an audition tape was leaked back in March that appears to show the actor Tom Archdeacon trying out for the part of a character sharing a similar history to the comic book Mister Immortal.
Of course, Marvel didn’t officially confirm this casting, but it seems pretty likely if the tape is legit.
Captain Marvel (-500)
Capital Marvel was the first female lead in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie when she appeared in the blockbuster of the same name in early 2019.
In the movie, she is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who has to fight off Skrulls to help save her planet and people (or so it seems). However, the film has no connections to Hulk or She-Hulk – so you may be questioning the -500 odds.
Yet again, the reason lives in the real world, owing to events outside of the MCU.
Marvel knows there is massive popular demand for those actresses portraying their female protagonists, so having these characters coming together (or fighting against each other) in the show is just good for business. Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) is a longtime fan favourite, and that fact alone puts her in good standing to appear in the show.
On the same -500 odds as Captain Marvel, Man-Bull is another solid favourite to appear in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
We first saw him appear in July 1971 in Daredevil #78 when Mister Kline recruited William Taurens to participate in an experiment. The trial resulted in him becoming a humanoid bull that grew more aggressive over time – standard practice for Marvel.
Man-Bull often appears alongside Grey Hulk, though not She-Hulk (at least not yet).
His appearance in the new TV show was rumoured in a Reddit post several months ago that was published at the time as the Mister Immortal audition. It’s not entirely clear what role he would play in the story if he is to make a cameo.
Given how the Mister Immortal audition seems pretty robust, the other rumours are treated as more trustworthy than they might have been otherwise.
Jill Stevens (-400)
Jill Stevens is our next strong candidate for appearing in the She-Hulk: Attorney At Law TV series. Her -400 odds aren’t stemming from rumours or realities on the ground, like most other favourites. Instead, her Marvel betting odds are because of long-standing connections to She-Hulk in the MCU.
Stevens was the best friend of Jennifer Walters during their childhood and into adulthood. The two were inseparable, even during difficult times.
In fact, the two even look very similar, with only their different hair colours separating them. Sadly for Stevens, it was her close physical resemblance to Walters and their strong friendship that (potential spoiler alert) got her killed.
Although she died in the comics, that doesn’t mean she can’t or won’t appear in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. The writers could include her in plenty of ways, including simply ignoring the comic narrative, retelling this part, or using flashbacks.
They could, of course, also choose to ignore Stevens altogether, but odds of -400 suggest this is probably not going to be the case.
Baron Blood (-400)
Baron Blood is a name used to refer to several different villains in Marvel Comics over the years, with the first appearing in The Invaders #7 back in July 1976. The original was the alter ego of John Falsworth, who was turned into a vampire by Dracula in the early 20th century.
And yet, if Baron Blood is to make an appearance in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, he’s likely to be the most recent iteration: Kenneth Crichton.
Just like Mister Immortal and Man-Bull, the reason for Baron Blood’s short odds for appearing in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law comes down to the rumours circulating the web. The suggestion came as part of the same Reddit post, so if we get credit to one, we’ve got to give credit to all!
We will, however, have to wait until at least next month before we can find out for sure.
She-Hulk: Attorney At Law promises to be an exciting series for all fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But who will be joining the gamma-powered superhero in She-Hulk betting at Bodog? These five favourites look like solid bets, but what do you think? Get your slips in, grab the popcorn, and let’s find out!
