According to a new report from Deadline, Marvel Studios has cast Tatiana Maslany in the role of Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk for the upcoming Disney+ mini-series She-Hulk. The Orphan Black star joins on shortly after the show signed on Kat Coiro as the director.
The actress, who played the main character in the sci-fi series between 2013 and 2017, will take on the role of Jennifer Walters, cousin of Bruce Banner, in the upcoming Disney series.
Walters inherits Banner’s Hulk powers via a blood transfusion, and is said to keep her “personality, intelligence and emotional control” according to Variety.
Disney and Marvel have still not made any official comment to confirm Maslany’s casting, but the Hulk himself is already welcoming her to the family.
