Actress Tatiana Maslany said She-Hulk, the titular character in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ show, is inspired by a transgender musician and is the “antithesis of most superhero narratives.”

“I always come back to Sophie, who’s this amazing trans artist who unfortunately died last year,” Maslany, 36, said in a recent interview.

“What I love about Sophie’s music is this combo of organic and electrical, industrial-type sounds that felt connected to She-Hulk.”

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is set to release on Aug. 17 and represents a distinct kind of comic book character, according to Maslany.

“She’s in a career that’s male-dominated and incredibly vicious and hierarchical,” Maslany said. “She really is the antithesis of most superhero narratives.”

“When she’s heading this superhuman firm, that’s where we get some really fun characters that she’s either defending or in opposition of. It’s like this really absurd take on a legal show.”

The show is TV-14, according to Disney.
