New broke out via Deadline Hollywood that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany will play She-Hulk in the upcoming Disney+ series !

Showrunner Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty) serves as the writer and executive producer. Filming is likely to begin in early 2021.
For those who’ve been living under a rock and don’t know about Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk, she was one of Stan Lee’s last major co-created characters before he retired. Jennifer is an attorney at law and the cousin of Bruce Banner aka the Incredible Hulk. After suffering from a fatal bullet wound, Bruce gave his cousin an emergency blood transfusion which in turn gave Jennifer her gamma radiated powers and appearance. Though unlike Bruce, Jennifer can maintain her intelligence and her personality when she’s Hulked out. She-Hulk has been a mainstay in Marvel history having joined both the Avengers and for a time the Fantastic Four ! Some of Maslany’s credits in the entertainment industry include HBO’s Perry Mason, Netflix/Dreamwork’s Tales of Arcadia,and Destroyer.
She-Hulk is another MCU project I cannot wait to see in action ! There’s so many good comic book runs on the character that I would love to see take some inspiration from ! Whether it’s based on the classic 4th wall breaking take by John Bryne or the hilarious Dan Slott run, the possibilites are endless !
