Last month, Marvel Studios finally announced the first three cast members for She-Hulk, including Tatiana Maslany in the title role. Now, another cast member has joined the show.
Deadline is reporting that Ginger Gonzaga has been cast as the “best friend” of She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters. However, further details about her character are unknown. We only know that Gonzaga will be co-starring as a series regular.
Gonzaga has a lot of comedic experience, including roles in Ted, I’m Dying Up Here, Wrecked, and Mixology. She also guest starred in Netflix’s Space Force as Anabela Ysidro-Campos, a parody character inspired by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Shortly after this story broke, Gonzaga reacted to the news on her Twitter account:

She-Hulk will be a half-hour legal sitcom, which should play to Gonzaga’s strengths. Mark Ruffalo will also reprise his role as Jennifer’s famous cousin, Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Within the comic book realm, Bruce saved Jennifer’s life after an assassination attempt. However, his gamma irradiated blood transformed her into She-Hulk. But when transformed, Jennifer retains most of her personality and intelligence. She has even tried cases as She-Hulk, and is an expert in superhero law.
Marvel Studios will begin filming She-Hulk later this year.
