She-Hulk Promotes the Season Finale With a Whole Lot of BTS Twerking
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law celebrates its first season finale with a whole lot of twerking.
On Oct. 13, coinciding with the release of the finale of the series, the official She-Hulk Twitter account shared an extended dance montage from the set. The video concludes with an extended behind-the-scenes twerk session between star Tatiana Maslany and hip-hop icon Megan Thee Stallion. Several other cast members also get in on the dancing action, including Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner).
Megan Thee Stallion made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the third episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, "The People vs. Emil Blonsky." The episode found the hip-hop artists being impersonated by an Asgardian fraudster, capping off with her teaching Tatiana Maslany's irradiated lawyer how to twerk. The scene threw the internet into a frenzy at the time and has become a fan-favorite moment from the series.
Jameela Jamil, who plays Titania in the series, has previously opened up about her role in getting Megan Thee Stallion signed on for her first MCU appearance. "I was the one that made that happen," Jamil recalled. "I mean, I know Megan from Legendary and I know how legendary she is, and she's so smart and so funny and just such a star, and I'm such a fan. So I was preparing to come and do this when I was filming Legendary Season 2, and I just asked her, and she turned out to be a huge Marvel fan."
Regarding the series' unconventional approach to superhero stories, Maslany stated that "[She-Hulk] really is the antithesis of most superhero narratives. There's this great element of denial in her that's relatable. For me, it was about rejecting what’s happened for as long as I could, as that’s what causes the fun tension between Jennifer and She-Hulk."
Series creator Jessica Gao also offered her take on She-Hulk's unique brand of storytelling. Gao explained, "So much of what I think is fresh about [She-Hulk] is it really is about a woman living a very regular life even though she happens to be imbued with these superpowers and so, while we play into some of the tropes of the genre – like villains! – we have the luxury of a series that doesn't have a ticking plot clock."
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is available to stream on Disney+.
