The upcoming Disney+ series will see the return of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner and Charlie Cox as Daredevil. Joining the Hulk family, the series follows the journey of Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters as she juggles her life between being a superhuman and a lawyer.

Tatiana Maslany was gonna be She-Venom?

It is common for many actors to be considered for a role, leading to many interesting team-ups not happening, like Matthew McConaughey for the Hulk. She-Hulk was no stranger to this situation while trying to join the MCU. Speaking on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast, she stated:

“I’ve been trying to get them… they’ve rejected me multiple times.”

When pressed further by the podcast’s host Scott Aukerman, the actor revealed she was trying to get cast in Sony’s Venom movie, but not even as the protagonist, just the symbiote’s girlfriend, possibly She-Venom/Anne Weying.

All the better at the end for Tatiana Maslany

Even though she would be on the map, cast as She-venom, she’s better off getting her own show and being cast as a member of the MCU. Eventually, Michelle Williams was cast as She-Venom/ Anne Weying but fans feel she has been underutilized.
