Marvel Studios have found its star to take over the title role in its She-Hulk series. The Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany is the choice to play the title character in Marvel’s She-Hulk series for Disney Plus.
She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters which was the last major character to be co-created by Stan Lee, and She-Hulk was an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gives Walters her powers, but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out.
Shortly after Deadline’s story on Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk casting was published, it was retweeted by Mark Ruffalo who plays The Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He gave Maslany a warm welcome:
