She-Hulk has finally found its She-Hulk: Tatiana Maslany cast
Marvel has found the perfect person for its She-Hulk show.
One of Marvel's biggest TV shows has finally found its lead star. She-Hulk was one of the TV shows that caused the biggest stir when it was revealed that Marvel was making a show of it.
While Alison Brie was the name bandied around for many months, this tuned out to be fan conjecture as the creators of She-Hulk, according to Variety, have decided on Tatiana Maslany.
Now, anyone who has watched Orphan Black will be familiar with Maslany. The show was an acting masterclass for the actress, where she played myriad roles to great effect, as well as putting on a whole host of accents.
Since then she has starred in the recent, and rather excellent, Perry Mason reboot.
Although Disney (or Marvel) hasn't made the news official, Variety seems to be pretty convinced that Maslany has the role and we couldn't be happier.
Maslany is not stranger to Disney's casting corridors. It was revealed by Hollywood Reporter that she was in the running for Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - alongside the likes of Rooney Mara. The role ended up going to Felicity Jones who did a fantastic job.
In a rather brilliant way, Mark Ruffalo has already commented on the casting, saying on Twitter: Welcome to the family, cuz!
It's thought that Ruffalo will have some part to play in the She-Hulk TV show.
