Marvel Studios is experiencing some serious buzz for their new series “Loki” and are deep into production on their big “She-Hulk” series in Atlanta starring Emmy-winners Tatiana Maslany as the titular heroine and Mark Ruffalo reprising his role as the Hulk.
Kevin Feige and the studio team have a thing for hiring comedic actors for high-profile MCU roles, as seen with Kathryn Hahn playing the witchy villainess Agatha Harkness in “WandaVision” and Owen Wilson co-starring alongside Tom Hiddleston as TVA Agent Mobius M. Mobius in “Loki.”
A casting tidbit from The Illuminerdi made the rounds online that supports the studio’s push to cast comedians in meaty parts, as “The Good Place” actress Jameela Jamil has joined the comic book series. Both TV Line and Variety have backed up the news. The Illuminerdi first mentioned that Jamil would play the formidable Marvel Comics villain, Titania; this was echoed in the trade reports.
Maslany’s Jennifer Walters is a defense lawyer that during a serious accident, needs a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner, only to develop superpowers similar to Banner’s becoming the heroine She-Hulk. But, unlike, Banner, Walters doesn’t transform and stays a green giant full time. When it comes to the great Marvel Cinematic Universe, an excellent crossover character that could even join Jon Watts‘ upcoming “Fantastic Four” film as the heroine connects the team as she was a member alongside The Avengers, among other teams.
Emmy-winning writer Jessica Gao (“Rick & Morty“) leads the show’s writers’ room with directors Kat Coiro and Anu Valia helming the episodes.
Other cast members on the comedic workplace series include Tim Roth reprising his “The Incredible Hulk” role Emil Blonsky/Abomination, Ginger Gonzaga, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Anais Almonte.
“She-Hulk has 10-episodes and is aiming to debut on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
