Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany Cast As Marvel’s She-Hulk
Earlier this week, Marvel Studios and Disney+ lined up Kat Coiro to direct the pilot episode of the She-Hulk live-action series. Now, the title role has been filled. According to Variety, Tatiana Maslany has been cast as Jennifer Walters AKA She-Hulk.
In the comic book realm, Jennifer Walters is a successful attorney and the cousin of the Hulk, Bruce Banner. After an attempt on Jennifer’s life, Bruce gave her an emergency blood transfusion that ultimately gave her a Hulk persona as well. However, unlike her cousin, Jennifer retains her personality when transformed into She-Hulk. Jennifer has also been a member of both the Avengers and the Fantastic Four.
Maslany is best known for starring in Orphan Black as several different clones for five seasons. She even won an Emmy Award for Best Actress in 2016 for her multiple roles on the show. More recently, Maslany co-starred in Perry Mason on HBO.
Additionally, there is a strong possibility that Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role as Bruce Banner/Hulk. But so far, no other cast members have been announced. Marvel’s Kevin Feige has previously indicated that characters on upcoming Disney+ series, like Ms. Marvel, will appear in the MCU movies in the future. Presumably, that includes She-Hulk as well.
Rick and Morty veteran Jessica Gao is the showrunner for She-Hulk. The series is will begin filming next year. Regardless, Disney+ hasn’t officially set a premiere date for the series yet. A 2022 debut seems likely.
