She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s second episode sees Jennifer Walters finding her footing at the law firms of GLKH. While most of the episode focuses on her new role within the Superhuman Law division, we do get a remarkable moment with her cousin Bruce. A mysterious spaceship causes a car crash in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law episode 1, and its big implications for the future.
The She-Hulk episode 1 spaceship is confirmed to be a Sakaaran Class-Eight courier craft. Viewers might recognize the ship’s design from some spaceships seen on Sakaar in Thor: Ragnarok. Smart Hulk confirms the identity of the ship and tells Jennifer that it means someone is trying to deliver him a message.
During an interview with The Direct’s Pamela Gores, Jessica Gao She Hulk’s producer teased that audiences will soon see why Hulk ended up on Sakaar in the first place in Thor: Ragnarok. Gao hinted that we all know the big green machine spent “a lot of time off-planet” and that Ragnarok only covered a teeny-tiny part of his time there.
She further mentioned that Banner and Hulk both may have some unfinished business to tend to before he can fully be present on Earth. The well-crafted drops could spell out something more for Hulk in the future, whether in She-Hulk, his off-shoot project, or fellow Avenger’s production.

In the interview, Jessica Gao highlighted that Hulk spending time on the planet at Thor is key to understanding why Hulk chose to travel to space.
“Well, all I’ll say is, you know, he spent a lot of time off-planet as we saw in Thor: Ragnarok. And, we only got to see a little tiny bit of what his life was like when he was on that planet.”
Gao further teased that Hulk is about to “handle some off-world things” that happened during his time in Sakaar and potentially before he landed on that planet:
“I mean, God knows what Hulk got up to in the years he was there, so he’s gotta go back and handle some off-world things that happened during that time.”
Fan theories are abuzz that this will be the formal introduction of a variation on the “Planet Hulk” storyline from the comics, which immediately followed the events of “Civil War” and which led to the crossover series “World War Hulk”.
