She-Hulk: Attorney at Law may have confirmed the X-Men’s most famous mutant, Wolverine, is already active in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
SPOILERS FOLLOW FOR SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW EPISODE 2!
Following Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is chock full of Marvel references and Easter eggs. Episode 2 contains a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it nod to Logan, the first sign of one of the X-Men living in the MCU’s 616 universe.
The moment is fleeting, but a few eagle-eyed Marvel fans caught it, right alongside a nod to a significant Eternals event.
Marvel Teases The Arrival Of The X-Men
The Wolverine tease can be seen on Jennifer Walters’ laptop in the second episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
After transforming into She-Hulk to stop the villain Titania in court in the series’ first episode, Jen finds herself out of a job. As a result of her saving the jury’s lives, a mistrial was declared and Jen’s firm decided she was a liability. This leads to her desperately searching for new work.
After being rejected by countless law firms, Jen is seen reading an online article title “10 Offbeat Jobs for a Fresh Start.” A list of related articles at the side of the screen teases Wolverine’s presence in the MCU, as well as confirming the petrified Celestial seen in Eternals hasn’t been forgotten.
Check out this screenshot of the articles that come up on Jen’s laptop in She-Hulk:
“Man fights with metal claws in bar brawl” is a fairly clear nod to Wolverine. While there is no word on when the X-Men might appear in the MCU, it’s obviously on Marvel’s minds with the groundwork already being laid.
“Why there is a giant statue of a man sticking out of the ocean” appears to refer to the Celestial that began emerging from the Earth’s core in Eternals. As the Celestial was rendered harmless and is situated in the Indian Ocean, there has been little cause for the MCU’s US-based characters to reference it, but this Easter egg at least confirms it’s continuing to raise questions online.
Here is the synopsis for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law:
“She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk.”
Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk: Attorney at Law stars Tatiana Maslany, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Benedict Wong, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
