The She-Hulk: Attorney at Law late name change was Kevin Feige’s idea says head writer Jessica Gao. Up until very close to release She-Hulk was the title of the show. We even have official art with that older logo (below). However as Gao explained when speaking with Lifehacker, the name change came from the line in the show and Feige decided it was a great name for the show.
“We always had the line in the show where Bruce says ‘She-Hulk attorney at law, it’s got a nice ring to it’. And one day we were watching cuts and when it got to that scene Kevin just said ‘that’s a great title for a show, that should be the title of the show’. And that’s it,” she said.
“You know when the golden tongue of Kevin Feige speaks then it becomes canon and that’s really how it happened.”
This is not the only major change that was made late to She-Hulk. Gao has also been telling the press that Episode 1 was actually mostly Episode 8 at one point. In other words, Jen’s Hulk backstory wasn’t going to come up til the end of the show. The team then decided this needed to go up front and swapped this into Episode 1.
For a show I didn’t think I was going to like at all, I kinda did enjoy the She-Hulk premiere. However I reserve the right to change my mind as comedy is not normally my thing. I like British surreal/sarcastic comedy, so I’m rarely impressed by American comedy. Rarely isn’t never though, and I can only call that first episode the way I see it.
