After her Marvel project received tons of backlash, Tatiana Maslany is unsure whether she will reprise her role in a sequel or appear in other MCU movies. The actress made her debut appearance in the superhero genre in Disney+’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law last year where she portrayed Jennifer Walters.
It was a novelty concept for Marvel Studios, and while the nine-episode series revolved around action comedy drama, fans’ reception, and enthusiasm for the show is a mixed bag of emotions. Its first season concluded in October, and until now, there are still no reports of a return.

Tatiana Maslany Reveals Uncertainty On Her Return To The MCU
Tatiana Maslany spoke with Gold Derby and discussed the possibility of her coming back for another She-Hulk project:
“I truly have no idea, and I feel like the internet knows more than I do. But I would love to.”
Expressing her interest in reprising the role, she was asked if she would like to do an MCU movie one day:
“I’d love to put her—as we had so many other actors come to our show and tonally shift their character, put him or her in a totally different scenario, a different universe, which is so fun about the Marvel Universe is that… there’s a Multiverse. I don’t know if you’re aware (laughing), but there is a Multiverse.”

To elaborate on her wish to take on a new challenge that is quite unlikely for her character, Maslany added:
“It’s like, yeah, putting her in a situation that is very unlikely. I think that would be super fun, just because the thing about She-Hulk to me is that she’s so out of place and that out of placeness I think has a lot of—it’s got legs.”
The series was popularly slammed on social media by many critics and fans saying it was not comic book accurate. Dan Slott, the writer of the She-Hulk comics, called out the public and reiterated that it is the most accurate adaptation of comics to TV series. On his Twitter account, he said:
“Anyone saying the She-Hulk TV show wasn’t “comic book accurate”… I’m the guy who has written more issues of SHE-HULK than anyone. I’ve read every single comic from every She-Hulk run. And I’m saying, for the record, it is the MOST comic book-accurate show in the MCU.”
The audience reception of a series plays a significant part in Marvel Studios’ giving the green light for a second season. Fans would have to campaign harder, although there is still the possibility of Maslany returning for an upcoming MCU film.

Will She-Hulk Appear On Other MCU Projects?
While uncertainty looms around her return to the franchise, Maslany’s remark on the multiverse is quite a puzzling thought as she did not mention anything that related to the events involving characters like Doctor Strange or even Peter Parker. Perhaps she is pointing out to other Marvel characters making cameo appearances in her series, like Charlie Cox’s Daredevil.
Fans would also remember that there were rumors of She-Hulk appearing in Captain America: New World Order with her cousin Bruce Banner. While this is unconfirmed, the report actually makes more sense because many elements of both franchises, such as General Ross’ Red Hulk transformation, coincide with one another.
Either way, Maslany’s She-Hulk will surely find her way in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and/or Secret Wars. Until then, fans will have to wait for further updates.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is available on Disney+.
