In 2021, Tim Roth’s Abomination returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though only for a brief moment early in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. But it will be the She-Hulk series when the Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction alum officially reprises his role as Emil Blonsky from 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, the movie that introduced the big green superhero to the MCU. That time, the British actor worked side-by-side with Edward Norton, who portrayed the titular hero just once before leaving the job to Mark Ruffalo. And it appears that the new face of Bruce Banner and Roth got along great on the She-Hulk set.
“I did The Incredible Hulk years ago, just because I thought my kids would be embarrassed by it,” he said while talking with THR. “I did it for them and I really enjoyed making it. So when they came to me and said: “We’re adapting the She-Hulk thing. Can you come back as that character again?” I was like, sure. It should be fun. I was very surprised though because it was difficult at first. It was only when Mark Ruffalo came in to shoot his stuff that I went: ‘Oh, that’s how you do it! With a sense of humor!’”

In addition to Roth and Ruffalo, the She-Hulk cast sees Tatiana Maslany leading as the titular heroine. Ginger Gonzaga, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Jameela Jamil also star. The ten-episode series involves Jessica Gao as the head writer, with Kat Coiro and Anu Valia helming different blocks of episodes. Marvel’s She-Hulk will hit Disney+ somewhere in 2022.
