The She-Hulk series coming down the pipeline at Disney+ may have just found its star in none other than Tatiana Maslany.
According to Deadline, actress Tatiana Maslany is currently nearing a deal that would find the Orphan Black vet taking on the titular role in the upcoming Disney+ series, She-Hulk.
Reps for the Emmy Award winning actress have yet to comment on the casting news. In addition, neither Marvel Studios nor Disney have released an official statement on the matter.
Disney+ has a fair few live-action Marvel series coming down the pipeline. Though we’ve known about many of them for quite some time, it wasn’t until last summer’s D23 that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that a She-Hulk series was officially in the works.
The upcoming live-action series finds Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters, taking center stage after she inherits his powers following a blood transfusion. Jennifer’s Hulk differs from that of Bruce’s in the sense that she’s still able to maintain much of her personality, intelligence, and emotional control— even after transforming into She-Hulk.
Behind the camera, Rick and Morty vet Jessica Gao will serve as showrunner, and writer on the series. Gao will in turn be joined by Kat Corio (Life Happens, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), who has been tapped to serve as director and executive producer on the project.
