Reports from multiple trades are revealing that Tatiana Maslany of Orphan Black fame has landed the role of Jennifer Walters a.k.a. She-Hulk in Marvel’s She-Hulk series for Disney+.
Kat Coiro is directing and executive producing the series which will be written, executive-produced, and show-run by Jessica Gao. Jessica Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk and she received her powers from a blood transfusion. However, unlike the Hulk in most incarnations, the She-Hulk gets to retain her intelligence.
Getting the award-winning Maslany has got to be a big deal for Marvel, and further proof that this group of Marvel series is a big deal for both Marvel and Disney. No release date for She-Hulk has been announced as of yet.
