Someone working for Marvel Studios has dropped a piece of news that absolutely no one noticed!
This article may contain spoilers for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s finale episode.
The Walt Disney Company’s Marvel Studios have struck green with their newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022), following other Moon Knight (2022) and Ms. Marvel (2022). The Disney+ Original officially aired its finale episode which had many people talking about its implications in the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe world and lore, as well as dedicated Daredevil (2015) fans salivating over the new MCU scenes featuring Charlie Cox’s Man Without Fear, Matt Murdock/Daredevil — effectively setting up soft reboot Dardevil: Born Again in 2024 (nope, Matt’s friend and girlfriend from the previous Netflix Marvel show seemingly aren’t returning).
Amidst all this buzz, someone working on She-Hulk let slip this surprising bit of news that no one had figured out yet.
Apparently, Marvel Studios hired a man to play the character of She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters in the finale episode of the show that aired last Thursday.
In several photos released online, actor Devon Lewis who worked on She-Hulk: Attorney at Law shared these images of a male She-Hulk actor, instead of Jennifer Walters’ original actor, Tatiana Maslany. The images show a male actor dressed as She-Hulk, getting ready in the makeup chair with a full face of bright green Hulk-makeup (the likes of which Incredible Hulk/Smart Hulk and Bruce Banner actor Mark Ruffalo doesn’t even contend with).
The catch? He was the body double in question:
The following may contain language not suitable for younger readers.
A lot of people still haven’t realized that She-Hulk was played by a man… Yes motherfuckers, that’s me.
So why did Marvel Studios hire this male actor?
Well, it was a tribute to the original 1970s approach to depicting She-Hulk — the character being played by a man was a deliberate departure from the portrayal by Maslany. All of this was done in order to create a purposely “meta” moment for the audience (as they attempted pretty much throughout the entire finale), particularly in that opening sequence.
Here, the actor shows his fully green-painted torso and voluminous black She-Hulk wig.
In a video released to social media app TikTok, Devon Lewis, AKA @samoansuperman14 posted the following video revealing the truth:

Kevin Feige’s Marvel Cinematic Universe ended Phase Three with the dramatic departure of Marvel Studios icons Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man/Tony Stark) and Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers). Now, the Infinity Saga makes way for the Multiverse Saga — with Phase Five and Phase Six on the horizon after Phase Four concludes with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever debuting this November 11.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was written and created by Jessica Gao and directed by Kat Coiro and Anu Valia. The comedy-driven lawyer show also features returning Marvel Studios characters such as Bruce Banner/the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) (absolutely on the verge of his own World War Hulk solo outing), Wong AKA “Wongers” (Benedict Wong) and Emil Blonsky/the Abomination (Tim Roth) and in a surprising cameo role, Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox).
On Jennifer Walters’ side are Nikki Ramos (Ginger Gonzaga), “Pug” AKA Augustus Pugliese (Josh Segarra) and Mallory Brook (Renée Elise Goldsberry), while social media influencer Titania (Jameela Jamil) is a constant hindrance.
