Marvel’s Disney+ trailer She-Hulk the series dropped and it revealed a lot of cool cameos! One of the weirdest cameos, though, is a Marvel…er, superhero, I guess? One that I don’t think anyone expected to see in the MCU.
She-Hulk: Lawyer, premiering on Disney+ August 17, tells the story of Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters. Jennifer is a mild-mannered lawyer representing super humans, when a car accident leaves her in desperate need of a blood transfusion. When Bruce is the only one who can donate, he inadvertently gives her his power to transform into the Hulk. Thus, She-Hulk was born! The 9-episode series will follow Jennifer as she tries to juggle her newfound superpowers (and the instant fame that comes with them) with her courtroom duties.
Jennifer will be joined by Marvel characters like Bruce, Wong and Emil Blonsky, also known as Abomination. But a lightning-quick moment in the trailer reveals another character who will be joining her: Frog-Man.
Pretty fly for a green dude
the She-Hulk The trailer features a montage of various fight scenes, and about a minute and a half later we see a glimpse of a guy in a frog suit taking a fighting stance. We only see him for a split second, but if you read the Marvel comics, you can’t go wrong: it definitely looks like Frog-Man.
For a minor character in the comics, Frog-Man has a surprisingly rich history. His name is Eugene Patilio, and he is the son of ill-fated supervillain Vincent Patilio, who invented a reel game that allowed him to jump up to six stories in the air. Vincent, who dubbed himself Leap-Frog, ended up in jail, and when Eugene found his father’s old costume and reels, he decided to make up for his family’s past by becoming the superhero the Fabulous Frog-Man. In the comics, Eugene moves around, helping Spider-Man, the Avengers, and other heroes and teams.
What does Eugene do in She-Hulk? Don’t jump to conclusions
So what role will Frog-Man play in She-Hulk?
We have no idea yet! It’s even possible that it’s not Frog-Man at all, but Leap-Frog. Keep in mind that Marvel Studios takes a lot of liberties with its source material from the comics, so it’s hard to make any solid predictions at this point. It’s possible it’s Eugene in the costume and acting as Jennifer’s ally. Or it could be Vincent, looking to make trouble.
We also don’t know what role Frog-Man (or Leap-Frog) will play in the series. It’s possible he’s got a big role (after all, he’s a big comic relief, even in the trailer), but it’s also possible he’s just a brief Easter egg. We will have to wait until August 17 to find out when She-Hulk: Lawyer makes its way to all of our water lilies.
