According to published reports, Canadian actress, Tatiana Maslany has been cast to play Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk in her upcoming Disney+ series.
The series will center on lawyer Jennifer Walters (Maslany) who inherits the Hulk powers after she receives a blood transfusion from her cousin. Unlike Bruce Branner, however, when she “hulks” out Jennifer is able to retain much of her personality, intelligence, and control. Maslany, best known for portraying multiple characters in the science fiction television series “Orphan Black” was not able to be reached for comment at the time of this writing.
“She-Hulk” is one of the upcoming original Marvel series in the works at Disney+, the others being “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “WandaVision” are on deck first for debuts later this year, followed by “Loki” in early 2021.
Marvel Studios is also developing the shows “Hawkeye,” “Ms. Marvel,” and “Moon Knight” as live-action shows.
