Despite the actress denying reports of her casting back in October, it’s now official: Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany is set to take on the title role of Jennifer Walters in Marvel Studios’ upcoming She-Hulk series on Disney+.
The news was revealed by Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige during yesterday’s Disney Investor Day presentation, during which he also dropped news on two returning MCU characters – one expected, the other not.
In addition to Mark Ruffalo, who plays Jennifer’s cousin Bruce Banner, She-Hulk will also see Tim Roth reprising his role as Emil Blonsky/Abomination from 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. The series will mark the first time that Roth has crossed paths with Ruffalo’s Hulk, with Edward Norton starring as Banner in the original film.
