She-Hulk is set to smash her way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2022 as Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany takes on the role of Bruce Banner’s (Mark Ruffalo) cousin Jennifer Walters in Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series.
We got a first teaser for the show last month during Disney+ Day, although it only offered the briefest of glimpses of She-Hulk in her gamma-enhanced glory. However, while we await the full unveiling, Maslany has put an end to any debate over how Marvel will realise the character by revealing that – much like her on-screen cousin – She-Hulk is “all CG”.
“I’m in mo-cap the whole time,” revealed Maslany during an interview on the Scott Hasn’t Seen Podcast. “I’m on platforms with mo-cap where I have a little head on the top of my head.”
There had been some speculation among fans as to whether Marvel may have went down the practical effects route to bring Maslany’s She-Hulk to life, especially as the series also features Ruffalo’s Hulk and Tim Roth’s Abomination, both of whom are fully CGI creations. However, it seems that Marvel has spared no expense when it comes to the VFX budget for what Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has previously described as a “half-hour legal comedy”.
She-Hulk is slated to premiere on Disney+ in 2022.
