She-Hulk actor Jameela Jamil reveals a hilarious alternate Titania courtroom fight in which the titular heroine punches her in a sensitive area.
While audiences eagerly await more of the antagonist, She-Hulk: Attorney at Lawactor Jameela Jamil reveals a hilarious alternate Titania courtroom fight. Jamil, best known for her breakout role in NBC’s The Good Place, stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series as Titania, a social media influencer with superhuman strength who becomes a rival to the titular heroine. Titania first runs afowl of She-Hulk in the closing moments of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s premiere, in which she attempts to escape traffic court and bursts into a courtroom in which Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters is conducting a case.
Despite only being in the first episode, Titania’s arrival in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law marked a major step in Jennifer’s life as it brought the spotlight onto her Hulk abilities, and subsequently got her fired and nearly blacklisted as she struggled to find a job. Jennifer would ultimately land a job at GLK&H as the head of their new Superhuman Law Division, of which she will have to solely appear as the She-Hulk and has her first case assigned to her as representing Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky/Abomination in his parole hearing. Though a brief moment, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s Titania courtroom fight has become one of the more talked-about sequences of the show and one of its stars is offering a unique insight about filming it.
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, guest hosted by comedian Nikki Glaser, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law actor Jameela Jamil looked back on filming the MCU series. The Good Place alum recalls filming the Titania courtroom fight scene, revealing a hilarious alternate take she begged Marvel to let her film in which the titular heroine punches the antagonist in the privates in the hopes of achieving equality for when men get hit in the same spot on TV. See what Jamil shared below:
They chose the dignified one where I do the move and I get hit in the stomach and I get knocked out. I felt we have seen so many men kicked in the balls on television for such a long time, and we’ve never seen a woman get socked right in the vagine. And I believe in equality, so therefore, I wanted, I begged for — I can’t believe they’re so cool, they let me give them a take of what it would look like if She-Hulk punched me in the p—y.
Jamil’s reveal about She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s alternate Titania courtroom fight is sure to be a funny BTS story for those who have already fallen in love with the character and the actress’ approach to playing her. In addition to the story, Jamil revealed a brief clip of the alternate take, which ultimately played more like a blooper as the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law actor’s reaction to being punched in her privates is a much more humorous one than one to be taken seriously. While it may not have been used for the final version of the sequence, Jamil’s thought process of capturing the same level of humor as when men get hit in their genitals not only is understandable, but also fits nicely with the show’s feminist themes.
Despite featuring prominently in the show’s marketing, Titania has yet to be seen since the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premiere, with both Jamil and creator Jessica Gao revealing that she won’t return until episode 5. Gao, the Emmy-winning writer behind Rick and Morty‘s “Pickle Rick” episode, revealed that the decision stemmed from wanting to more effectively set up a bigger conflict between the two later down the road. Until Titania’s return, audiences can catch new episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law streaming on Disney+ on Thursdays.
