She-Hulk: Attorney at Law may be Marvel Studios' newest Disney+ series, but it's also taking the time to connect back to one of the MCU's oldest and most overlooked films: 2008's The Incredible Hulk.
Even though Marvel replaced Edward Norton with Mark Ruffalo a decade ago, the studio didn't replace Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky. And, while his Hulk-Esque persona, Abomination, appeared in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, She-Hulk brought Tim Roth back as Emil for the first time in fourteen years.
In Episode 2 of She-Hulk, Blonsky explains that he's transformed himself both physically and spiritually and has even written haikus to his victims expressing his sorrow.
While Jennifer Walters wasn't interested in hearing Blonsky's regretful poems, MCU fans were more than intrigued; and now, they're finally getting a chance to - as Emil put it - "experience them."
Marvel Reveals Abomination's Haiku
After the official She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Twitter account promised to release some of Emil Blonsky's Haiku if the post reached 4,000 likes, Marvel has been true to its word.
The following are several of Jennifer Walters' newest client's poetic stylings:
"My tiny ears hear
the storm and stirrings of time
Pain caused and carried"
"To the world I am
an abomination but
to me I'm Emil"
Who are we to judge?"
"It's lonely in here
though I don't see it that way
I have my soulmates"
While the first haiku's mention of his "tiny ears" may be a reference to how Abomination has a different design now than he did in 2008, the latter haiku may be a hint at a future MCU story.
What Does Marvel Have Planned for Abomination?
During Blonsky's conversation with Jennifer Walters, he claims that he wants to start "a new life" with "seven soulmates" which he met through the prison's pen pal program.
Some fans are speculating that these seven individuals are the other members of Marvel's upcoming Thunderbolts film.
While that remains to be seen, a new She-Hulk trailer has confirmed that more Emil and Abomination are on the way.
New footage has shown the reportedly rehabilitated villain in both his human form and as Abomination, as well as a preview of the name he's made for himself. Also, since prior She-Hulk trailers have shown Wong, fans can expect to learn more about why the Sorcerer Supreme has had the former baddie fighting in Macau.
So even though Blonsky, and Marvel's plans for the character, are a bit of mystery right now, they probably won't stay that way for long.
New episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law debut on Thursdays on Disney+.
