    Tatiana Maslany Is Joining The MCU As She-Hulk And OMG, I Am So Excited


    All the way back in 2019, Marvel announced a lineup of five upcoming Disney+ series to be part of Phase 4 of the MCU.

    The shows, which include Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Wandavision, are highly anticipated.

    One such series is She-Hulk, which will feature the last major Marvel character to be co-created by the late Stan Lee.

    Lee passed away in 2018.

    She-Hulk, also knows as Jennifer Walters, is Bruce Banner's cousin, a lawyer who works with a bunch of other Marvel characters. She gets similar powers to Bruce through an emergency blood transfusion from him, but unlike Bruce, she retains her intelligence and personality as the She-Hulk.

    Kat Coiro has already been appointed director of the pilot and executive producer of the series, while Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao is set to run the writer's room.

    There's not a whole lot known about the series, which is set to premiere in 2022. But today, Deadline broke the news that Tatiana Maslany is set to play the titular character.

    I needed this today.

    While Maslany has starred in a wide array of TV and film projects, you most likely know her from Orphan Black, a critically acclaimed sci-fi show that aired in 2013–2017.


    If you've never seen this show, GO WATCH IT NOW. It's amazing.

    On the show, Maslany played numerous clones to perfection, winning an Emmy for her performance back in 2016.

    Well earned. I literally forgot that all her characters were played by one actor when I watched the show.

    Fans who have seen Orphan Black and know Maslany's talent and range are clearly ecstatic.

    bro, I have been her fan since Orphan Black days. You don't know how amazing her acting range is. Emmy Winner Tatiana Maslany is Jennifer fucking Walters. She is gonna play She-Hulk.

    People are ESPECIALLY excited about Maslany joining an epic crew of badass Marvel ladies.

    If Tatiana Maslany shares the screen with any of these women, I might actually die.

    ...And hoping that She-Hulk will share scenes with these ladies in future films.

    The idea of Tatiana Maslany and Brie Larson having a scene together in the next Avengers movie just added five years to my life. #SheHulk

    Especially Brie Larson, who plays Captain Marvel.

    I just started thinking about Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk interacting with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and I might need to go lie down for a while

    But it's not just fans who are excited — Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, welcomed Maslany to the family on Twitter.

    Welcome to the family, cuz! @tatianamaslany #SheHulk

    The series may be a few years off — but I, for one, could not be more excited. Congratulations to Tatiana Maslany and the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe!!
