She-Hulk, the next Disney+ series to hit the market, will be seen in completely different ways. With Jennifer Walters, audiences will be in the thick of the justice system as she heads a new division dedicated to dealing with superheroes' legal problems.
With the Sokovia Accords, MCU followers most recently followed anything regarding legality in the MCU. Speaking of, when was the last time those came up?
WhenThunderbolt Ross, played by William Hurt, warned Steve Rogers and his cohort that they were still under arrest, the issue was last mentioned in any meaningful way; there must be at least a little leeway in a post-blip world.
Tatiana Maslanys' upcoming show is a great opportunity to revisit the subject. Thankfully, the series may provide a much-needed update in this regard.
So what about the Sokovia Agreements?
Pamela Gores, the creator and head writer of Attorney at Lawseries, said she expects to hear more about the Sokovia agreements very soon:
Gao stated strongly that "the" program will answer the question of what happened to the Sokovia Accords:
Yes, this show will answer the question about what happened to the Sokovia Accords. Itll happen later in the season, but you will get an answer to what actually happened to the Accords."
In Captain America: Civil War, the notorious legal order required all potential superheroes to be registered with the government, while only working on authorized assignments from them. Needless to say, there were many disagreements about how best to deal with all of it.
Except forWandaVision andBlack Widow, which took place immediately following the Civil War, the Accords have not been mentioned in any previous Phase 4 projects. Kate Bishop had no problems putting her bow to good useThere were plenty of opportunities to include a line or two, but Marvel Studios chose not to.
Will She-Hulk bring resentment to the Accords?
The Sokovia Accords may be no longer in the picture as Jen seems to be getting little attention for being the She-Hulk. Had they been, the recent trailers might have focused on Jen's difficulties dealing with the road bump instead of revealing her new promotion.
A second factor is the fact that she is literally directing a new legislative division to deal with superhuman situations. This whole thing seems too leisurely for a world where the Sokovia Accords are still alive and well.
Will it be a major focus of an episode or a casual throwaway line when the program gets around to revealing more information about the status quo's fate? It's so big that it feels only appropriate for the program to have at least one episode about a client dealing with something related to them.
Fans will hopefully see it in the series sooner rather than later, as it is a piece of world-building that needs to be touched on once more.
On Thursday, August 18, She-Hulk will be available on Disney+.
