Tatiana Maslany Cast In Lead Role For Disney’s ‘She-Hulk’ Series
We’ve got some super exciting news for all you Marvel fans! The role of She-Hulk for Disney+’s upcoming series of the same name has been cast! According to a recent piece in Variety, the role is going to Tatiana Maslany!
Maslany is best known for her role in the BBC America drama Orphan Black which ran for five seasons between 2013 – 2017. She was nominated for three Emmy’s and a Golden Globe award for her role on the show. Maslany would go on to win a Emmy for best actress in a drama series in 2016. She recently appeared in Perry Mason for HBO as well as Stronger, Destroyer and Pink Wall.
The series follows lawyer Jennifer Walters (played by Maslany) who is the cousin of Bruce Banner. She inherits his Hulk powers when she receives a blood transfusion from him. However, her green transformation is slightly different from Bruce’s in that she is able to retain most of her personality, intelligence and emotional control.
Earlier this week, we here at MickeyBlog announced that Kat Coiro had signed on as an executive producer and director for She Hulk. According to reports she will direct the pilot and some additional episodes in the first season. We also know that Jessica Gao is writing the series and also holds the titles of producers and showrunners.
She-Hulk is just one of many Marvel projects slated for Disney’s streaming network. Others include Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki.
