Marvel Has A She-Hulk, Tatiana Maslany Cast As Lead For Disney+ Series

Ironically, since we published a piece lamenting the lack of MCU News in 2020, the Marvel gods have blessed us. It seems they are back to casting for future projects at Marvel Studios. We learned that Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors will appear in the third Ant-Man film, possibly as Kang the Conqueror. Today, we’ve learned that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany will play the lead in the She-Hulk series on Disney+. While this isn’t really a surprise, Maslany will play Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner. Interestingly, She-Hulk achieved the perfect meld of Hulk persona and her actual persona long before Bruce became “Smart Hulk.” Alas, there is still no word yet on whether or not Mark Ruffalo will appear in the series as well. Though, he has expressed interest in it.

Most recently appearing on Perry Mason as a charismatic religious leader, Maslany is best known for her work playing multiple roles. In fact, the incredible way in which she played, at least, three characters per episode makes it seem like almost a waste to use her for just one. Orphan Black is, essentially, a comic book story. In the wrong hands, the multiple clones and genetics cult plotline of the show would be ridiculous. Thankfully with great writing and great performances, the show is a new classic.

One thing we know Maslany can bring to the role is a good balance of playing for comedy and drama. Jessica Gao is leading the writers’ room, an Emmy winner for Rick & Morty. Kat Corio will direct the pilot, at least, possibly more episodes once filming gets underway.

She-Hulk will join Loki, WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight on Disney+.

What do you think about Tatiana Maslany playing the lead in the Marvel Studios She-Hulk series on Disney+? Tell us what She-Hulk stories you hope to see on the show in the comments.
