Tatiana Maslany cast as She-Hulk in Marvel TV series, Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo responds
Canadian actor Tatiana Maslany has been cast in the role of She-Hulk in the upcoming Disney+ Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) TV series reportedly titled She-Hulk. Announced last year at the D23 Expo, the show with Rick and Morty fame Jessica Gao serving as the lead writer will see the character of Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner aka. Hulk's cousin in the comics taking centre stage. She-Hulk is one among the three additional MCU TV series to be made for Disney+, with the other two being Ms Marvel and Moon Knight.
Tatiana Maslany is best known among fans for the science-fiction thriller TV series Orphan Black and also for starring in films such as Picture Day and Cas and Dylan. The character of She-Hulk is a lawyer by profession and transforms into a tamer version of the Hulk upon receiving a blood transfusion from Banner. She-Hulk shares similar features with the Hulk such as her skin being green, but is not as temperamental as her cousin, who is a leading team member of the Avengers roster. She is also known to be highly intelligent and often steps up to help other superheroes in legal matters in the comics.
With the news of Tatiana Maslany being cast as She-Hulk being made official, actor Mark Ruffalo, who portrays the Hulk in the MCU films, took to his Twitter page to welcome the actress into the ever-expanding superhero universe. He tweeted, "Welcome to the family, cuz! @tatianamaslany #SheHulk", while sharing the news of her casting as reported in a Hollywood media website. Earlier, Ruffalo expressed his interest to reprise his character as Bruce Banner in the show and it now remains to be seen whether Marvel takes note of the suggestion.
According to reports, several shows are currently being developed by Marvel Studios for Disney+ among which includes WandaVision, which has been announced to come out later this year. The show will see Elizabeth Olsen reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch alongside Paul Bettany as Vision. Furthermore, production on Falcon and the Winter Soldier featuring Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier resumed recently after being shut down in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The studio giant also has a Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston in development that was partially completed before production came to a halt in the wake of the pandemic.
