Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany cast as the MCU’s She-Hulk

September 17th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We learned earlier this week that Kat Coiro would be directing the She-Hulk series on Disney+ (here) and now we also know who will be playing the beautiful green hero.

Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has nabbed the role of Bruce Banner’s cousin who has his abilities and none of the drawbacks.

Coiro will helm the MCU series at the streamer as well as executive produce while Rick & Morty’s Jessica Gao will be handling some of the writing duties.

She-Hulk in the comics is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, the Hulk. When she comes close to death Banner gives her an emergency blood transfusion, granting her green skin, super strength and also the added bonus of keeping her intelligence and personality.

An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gave Walters her powers, but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out.

It joins The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki on it’s journey to the small screen on Disney+.

Mark Ruffalo was quick to take to twitter to welcome the star to the MCU family and, more importantly, the Banner family:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
