Only two episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s nine-episode run have premiered, which means there’s still a host of supporting players who have yet to be introduced. Many of these are existing Marvel characters like Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil. However, one of series’ more noteworthy cameos comes straight out of the real world. A new profile in The Cut reveals that rapper Megan thee Stallion has a role in an upcoming episode of She-Hulk.
Megan is currently basking in the success of her sophomore LP, Traumazine, which was released earlier this month, making her She-Hulk appearance a perfect cross-promotional opportunity. It’s unclear if Megan is making an appearance as herself on the show or if she’s playing a fictional character. Regardless, this isn’t the first time that Marvel has pulled from the world of pop music when casting its film & TV projects. Most recently, Harry Styles showed up as Eros/Starfox in a post-credits scene from Eternals. Other MCU actors like Zendaya (the Spider-Man trilogy) and Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye) have singing careers as well.
Fortunately, Megan thee Stallion already has a few acting credits under her belt. She has previously guest-starred on episodes of NBC’s Good Girls and Starz’s P-Valley. Earlier this year, she was cast opposite Nathan Lane, Bowen Yang, and Megan Mullally in F***ing Identical Twins, an R-rated musical comedy from A24.

We’ve actually heard about Megan’s looming induction into the ranks of the MCU before. Rumors about her She-Hulk involvement originally began making the rounds last year. In an episode of his Everything Always video podcast, host Michael Roman claimed that the rapper would have a “recurring” role in the show. But time will tell if she sticks around for more than one episode.
The third episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law hits Disney+ this Thursday, September 1.
