As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to bring in new franchises and characters, She-Hulk, a live-action series planned to launch on Disney+ later this year, is on the horizon. The new show will cast Orphan Black actress Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, and fans have been waiting with bated breath for further information about the project since its initial trailer premiered on Disney+ Day 2021. Some newly-released images of the show’s merchandise seem to have given fans a closer glimpse at Maslany’s persona as the She-Hulk, something fans have been eagerly awaiting for some time now. Some listings for officially-licensed Thermoses have hit shelves on Amazon, with various pieces of promo art featuring She-Hulk herself.
Maslany appears as Jennifer Walters, a New York City lawyer whose life is turned upside down after she is involved in an accident and needs a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner. As a consequence, Jennifer acquires her own version of the Hulk’s abilities, which influence both her professional life as a lawyer and her unexpected superhero persona. Additionally, the cast will feature Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Tim Roth as The Abomination, Jameela Jamil as Titania, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segura, and Renee Elise Goldsberry in yet-to-be-determined roles.
Jessica Gao, who used to work in Silicon Valley and Rick and Morty, will serve as showrunner. Anu Valia (A.P. Bio, Never Have I Ever) and Kat Coiro (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) are in charge of directing the show.
“I never choose a project based on genre. And I actually don’t think very much about genre, I think about character,” Coiro shared in an interview earlier this year. “And I think about the emotional lives of the characters and, you know, can I bring something? Can I bring a mix of humour and heart to this? Because that is what I love to watch. And it’s what I love to work with.”
“And so when I stepped into, you know, the Marvel playground,” Coiro added. “The cool thing about Marvel is that it is an ever-evolving universe and you have straight dramas, and you have very comedic films, and we are in that world where we’re definitely playing with a more comedic world, but it also is still part of Marvel land.”
She-Hulk is supposed to release on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
