She-Hulk: Attorny at Law - Does Episode 2 Really Create a Continuity Error with Shang-Chi?

She-Hulk: Attorny at Law – Does Episode 2 Really Create a Continuity Error with Shang-Chi?

The second episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (here our review of the first 4 episodes) it’s been out for just 48 hours and the final scene is already generating a lot of confusion among fans. The offending scene is the one that sees the protagonist Abomination in the Macau underground fight club, a scene that at first glance could highlight a serious error in the timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and invalidate the post-credits of Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings. But is not so!

But let’s go in order. This second episode of She-Hulk focuses on the first case of Jennifer Walters as a lawyer of the GLK & H firm, that is to represent Emil Blonsky for his probation. Although initially reluctant to take on the case, due to Blonsky’s past attempt to kill her cousin Banner, Jennifer eventually accepts the case. After the first meetings with Blonsky, Walters finds herself in front of a changed man who expressly expresses the desire not to transform himself into Abomination. At the end of the episode, as Jennifer accepts the safe case of winning it easily, she is surprised by the news that shows a leaked footage of the escaped Blonsky who, transformed into an Abomination, fights in a fight club.

This scene relates directly to Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings, film in which we witness the return of Emil Blonsky / Abomination in the MCU. In the film the Hulk villain faces off Wong in the Macau clandestine fighting circuit run by Xu Xialing, Shang-Chi’s sister. Once the meeting is over, we see the Sorcerer Supreme taking Blonsky back to the cell (as clearly visible through the portal).


Where then is the alleged continuity error? In the post-credits scene of Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings we see Bruce Banner, in human form with his arm still bandaged and with his wrist technological bracelet that allows him to stay in human form, analyze Shang-Chi’s rings with Wong and Captain Marvel. But in the first episode of She-Hulk, following the accident that gave Jennifer her powers, Bruce manages to heal her damaged arm after the snap thanks to the blood of her cousin, later transforming into Smart Hulk.

This makes it clear to us that the events of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law take place after those of Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings. But the final scene of the second episode of the series, in which we see Abomination fighting in the fight club, an event that took place before the start of the series, could suggest a serious error in the continuity but, as mentioned at the beginning, it is not.

“Because?” You will ask yourself, it is easy to say and the answer is easier than you think. Simply the footage shown on the news in the finale of the second episode is not happening live, but was filmed earlier and only leaked online after the Blonsky case went viral due to the involvement of She-Hulk. Ultimately no, in the second episode of the new Marvel series there is no plot hole or continuity error as we read online in the last few hours.

Directed by Kat Coiro (episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9) and Anu Valia (episodes 5, 6, 7) with Jessica Gao as screenwriter, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows the story of Jennifer Walters as she tries to face the complex life of a 30-year-old single lawyer who, moreover, is also a green Hulk over two meters tall and gifted with superpowers. The nine-episode series brings together a number of MCU veterans, including Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky / Abomination and Benedict Wong as Wong. The cast also includes Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kat Coiro and Jessica Gao. Co-executive producers are Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth.
