The first trailer for Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk TV show has landed online – and fans are going wild over the inclusion of a fan-favorite cult character.
Released on May 17, the official trailer for the upcoming Marvel Phase 4 project gives us our first look at Tatiana Maslany’s Green Machine in action. It also teases some specific plot points, such as how Jennifer Walters — the lawyer who transforms into She-Hulk whenever she gets angry or scared — juggles her two lives as a superhero. hero and lawyer.
Interestingly, the first trailer for She-Hulk also provides a taste of Titania by Jameela Jamil, aka the villain of the Disney Plus show. Surprisingly, though, it wasn’t Mark Ruffalo’s Titania, She-Hulk, Hulk, or Tim Roth’s returning Abomination that sent Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans into a frenzy.
So, who is the individual that keeps everyone spinning? None other than B-list superhero Frog Man.
“Wait, who the hell is Frog Man?”, we hear you cry. In the comics, Frog Man is the superhero – we use that term lightly, for reasons we’ll get to shortly – aka Eugene Patilio, the son of a former villain who uses the old Leap suit- His father’s frog to fight crime as a symbol of good. Patilio doesn’t have any superpowers to speak of, but his father’s old suit gives its wearer the ability to jump six stories in the air, thanks to electric jumping coils housed in the suit’s legs.
Naturally, Frog Man isn’t one of the most prominent superheroes in Marvel comics, but he’s helped quite a few – mostly Captain America and Spider-Man – on occasion. It looks like the Disney Plus series of She-Hulk will position him as a secondary hero/vigilante to Maslany’s Walters. But it remains to be seen if he’ll be used solely for comic book purposes, or if Marvel Studios took creative liberties with Frog Man and turned him into a more formidable street-level hero.
Either way, die-hard Marvel fans have expressed their delight that Frog Man is making his live-action debut in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Many fans have taken to social media apps including Reddit and Twitter to reveal their surprise and delight at the cult fan favorite’s appearance on the show, and many can’t wait to see him in action.
Reddit user cinemajax summed it up best, simply saying “I can’t believe there’s a Frog Man character.” Meanwhile, fellow Redditor Zebra_dan compared Frog Man’s costume to that of the Green Power Ranger from Saban Entertainment’s iconic franchise.

Another Reddit user, abellapa, suggested that Frog Man’s MCU debut could be the start of the studio’s desire to include even more obscure (and fan-favorite) Marvel characters. Meanwhile, Marcusj112 and toilet111 have just expressed their joy at the vigilante’s arrival in the Marvel live-action universe. Finally (as far as Reddit is concerned, at least), Joshdabozz demanded to see a Wong vs. Frog Man fight, with Benedict Wong’s Doctor Strange character making an appearance in She-Hulk.
On Twitter, fan reactions were of the same ilk. RonJon027 and the OGtacobadger couldn’t contain their excitement for Frog Man’s arrival. Meanwhile, Tom_Tresser wants to see a nod to another Frog-based Marvel character – Brick Frog – in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law in the back of Frog Man’s guise.
