Marvel has finally found its She-Hulk!
At long last, Marvel appears to have found its She-Hulk! Deadline has reported that Tatiana Maslany has signed on to play the title character and will now get ready to hulk up for Disney+. Best known for her Emmy-winning role in Orphan Black, Maslany was recently seen in HBO’s Perry Mason opposite Matthew Rhys, a role for which she received critical acclaim. She is now tipped to hulk up alongside MCU mainstay Mark Ruffalo in the Disney+ series.
Hot on the heels of the initial report, Mark Ruffalo took to social media in support of Maslany’s casting:

In the Marvel comics, Jennifer Walters was a young woman who received an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, who just so happens to be Bruce Banner. As a result of this transfusion of radioactive blood, Jennifer found that she could transform into a large, powerful green-skinned version of herself, but unlike her cousin, she’s able to retain much of her intelligence and emotional control.
This is wonderful news. With the world on the brink of another global lockdown – positive news is in short supply and with WandaVision finally confirmed to be arriving this December and Maslany now cast as She-Hulk, the Disney+ Marvel Universe is back on track!
