‘She-Hulk’ Disney Plus Series Casts Tatiana Maslany in Lead Role

Tatiana Maslany is easily one of the most talented actors out there (she proved this by playing clones in Orphan Black, for which she won a well-deserved Best Lead Actress Emmy). It seems like a safe bet that Ruffalo will reprise his role on the new series, presumably as the Smart Hulk we saw in Avengers: Endgame past year. Since then, the majority of news we have received on the upcoming series has mostly been rumors and speculation.

Meanwhile, it has also been revealed that Kat Coiro, the director of Marry Me, is set to direct the pilot as well as other episodes in series, which has Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao serving as showrunner.

Maslany is best known for the science-fiction thriller TV series Orphan Black.

While She-Hulk will get a spotlight on this show, Maslany could play a major role in the future of the MCU. It is now unknown when the series will begin production.

What do you make of these reactions to Maslany's casting? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

The green-skinned superhero starts off as highly-skilled lawyer Jennifer Walters, who transforms after having a life-saving (yet gamma-irradiated) blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner/Hulk. Unlike Bruce, however, when she hulks out Jennifer is able to retain most of her personality, intelligence, and emotional control.

Disney+ is working on several Marvel series, including The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki, which will all be released next year.
