Tatiana Maslany Has Been Cast as Jennifer Walters in the Title Role of the SHE-HULK Disney+ Series

Move over Bruce Banner, because your cousin Jennifer Walters is finally coming into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to Deadline, actress Tatiana Maslany (ORPHAN BLACK) has landed the lead role in Marvel Studios' Disney+ series, SHE-HULK.

Deadline writes:

"After tapping Kat Coiro as director, Marvel Studios looks to have found its star to take over the title role in its She-Hulk series. Sources tell Deadline that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany is the choice to play the title character in Marvel’s She-Hulk series for Disney+. Deadline broke on Tuesday that Coiro would direct several episodes, including the pilot, for the series and now the show has its actress for the highly coveted role.

"The last major character to be co-created by Stan Lee, She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gives Walters her powers, but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out."

SHE-HULK joins the ever-growing ensemble of Marvel Studios series on Disney+ that will see WANDAVISION debuts later this year, as well as THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER and LOKI premiering at some point in 2021.
