She-Hulk Showrunner Jessica Gao discussed Wong's online CV/LinkedIn Profile in an interview with The Direct. "That I actually have to give credit to our graphics team [for]," she said. "And I may be mistaken but probably Olney Atwell is the one that came up with that. I mean our graphics team actually… really paid attention to details and put in a lot of little funny jokes and bits that were really, really wonderful. But, we all just had such a laugh just imagining Wong, first of all, having a LinkedIn profile and having to put a work history. Any work history that ends with 'Sorcerer Supreme' is automatically chef's kiss… I love this era of Wong discovering and exploring American pop culture."

She-Hulk Director Explains the MCU Series' Unconventional Superhero Plot
https://www.cbr.com/she-hulk-director-explains-unconventional-plot-mcu/
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law director Kat Coiro recently delved into the show's non-traditional superhero plot during an interview with Total Film, saying, "So much of what I think is fresh about [She-Hulk] is it really is about a woman living a very regular life even though she happens to be imbued with these superpowers and so, while we play into some of the tropes of the genre – like villains! – we have the luxury of a series that doesn't have a ticking plot clock." Coiro concluded by saying She-Hulk's plot is "really about getting to know the characters" and letting viewers see the moments that they never get to explore in plot-driven stories. "So we tease Titania," she continued. "She will come back but she doesn't need to come back immediately, and that way we get to really get to know our characters."

https://www.cbr.com/she-hulk-secret-marvel-cameos-mcu/
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Ginger Gonzaga promised that some unexpected characters from the Marvel comics will appear in the newest Disney+ Marvel Cinematic Universe series. In an interview with TVLine, Gonzaga, who plays Jen Walters' (Tatiana Maslany) best friend Nikki Ramos, was asked whether fans could expect to see some riveting law drama after Titania started legal proceedings against She-Hulk in the show's fourth episode. The actor revealed that the superpowered influencer's lawsuit marks a turning point in the series as it will now focus on superhuman law and the whacky individuals who fall under it. While She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been no stranger to cameos with MCU alums Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Emil Blonsky/The Abomination (Tim Roth) and Wong (Benedict Wong) featuring in the first three episodes, Gonzaga shared the show will be host to even more special appearances - possibly of characters who have yet to grace the screen.
