Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk series casts ‘Orphan Black’ star Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk
For the majority of the summer, Marvel Studios has remained shockingly quiet all due to their summer blockbuster ‘Black Widow’ being delayed. Of course, that’s all due to the ongoing pandemic, COVID_19. That’s not even mentioning the delay of ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ which was supposed to drop last month. While production on that series has picked up again, giving us a small glimmer of hope for the series’ release. Another Disney+ original series, WandaVision, just recently got confirmed to release later this year.
While those are all huge properties that Marvel fans are eagerly waiting for. News on the announced She-Hulk series was held under wraps for much longer than fans anticipated. Leaving fans foaming at the mouth for any kind of announcement, tidbit, or revelation. The biggest question of all, who was playing the titular hero and her alter ego Jennifer Walters. After hints of casting news coming our way, we finally know who’s playing She-Hulk in the upcoming series.
Deadline has reported that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has been tapped to play Jennifer Walters and her alter ego She-Hulk. The series has been coming along well despite all that’s going on in the world. She-Hulk will be executive produced and directed by Kat Coiro; with production aiming to start in early 2021.
Shortly after Deadline’s initial report, Bruce Banner himself Mark Ruffalo welcomed his on-screen cousin into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tatiana Maslany will have the honor of being the first live-action iteration of She-Hulk and with her inclusion in the MCU, the floodgates have opened to crossovers and new teams that can be put together as time goes on.
