Jameela Jamil Joins She-Hulk Cast, Reportedly As Marvel Supervillain
Back in 2019, Disney announced that they were working on a She-Hulk series, with Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao to head the writers’s room. We learned that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany will play the lean, green, She-Hulk machine and Hamilton star Renée Elise Goldsberry will also join as an unknown character. The latest is that Jameela Jamil joins the She-Hulk cast, reportedly as a Marvel supervillain. Jamil, best known for her role as Tahani Al-Jamil on The Good Place, is supposedly going to play Titania, a super-strong rival to She-Hulk. She was empowered by Doctor Doom and also possesses an extreme level of endurance and stamina as well as a body that is exceedingly difficult to injure.

She-Hulk (alias: Jennifer Walters) is the cousin of Bruce Banner, and she inherited his Hulk powers after she receives a blood transfusion from him. While her powers were originally triggered by anger, she later learns how to control her transformation, and is able to retain her cognitive functions in her green form.
Disney+ has been killing it with the Marvel series, am I right? From the emotional Wandavision to the introduction of Sam Wilson as Captain America in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to the delightfully quirky Loki, the Disney+ series don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. We’re personally very excited to see She-Hulk and can’t wait to see what the series will be like!
Along with Maslany and Goldsberry, Jamil joins previously announced cast members Ginger Gonzaga and Tim Roth. Mark Ruffalo will also return as Bruce Banner in the series. Kat Coiro will serve as director and executive producer, and she will direct the pilot and additional episodes of the series. Jessica Gao is head writer for the series and serves as executive producer.
