Now we officially know who be playing the titular role in the upcoming Marvel Studios SHE-HULK series on Disney Plus. ORPHAN BLACK & PERRY MASON star Tatiana Maslany will get gamma-rayed out for the superhero series thanks to an exclusive by DEADLINE.

She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gave Walters her powers, but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out.

Maslany also becomes the latest female talent to lead a Marvel movie following in the footsteps of Brie Larson in CAPTAIN MARVEL and Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming BLACK WIDOW movie. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has made it his mission to diversify the MCU and this latest addition to the universe does just that.

Coiro’s next film is MARRY ME which hits theaters Valentine’s day weekend of 2021 The movie stars Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson and Sarah Silverman as well as music sensation Maluma in his first ever on screen role. 

She-Hulk’s alter-ego if you will is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gave Walters her powers but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out. Disney plus has yet to cast anyone to play the lead character. They have noted that they want an “Allison Brie like character” but have not cast Allison Brie….as of yet. 

Along with having her new film set to arrive next year, Coiro is no stranger to directing television. She has also directed numerous television shows including: Netflix’s DEAD TO ME, Showtime’s SHAMELESS and FX’s: IT’s ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA and more.

Jonathan Majors Is Headed To The MCU In A Lead Role

In a major announcement, Jonathan Majors (LOVECRAFT COUNTRY, THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO, DA 5 BLOODS) is now headed into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in a major way, no pun intended. Majors has joined the sequel to ANT-MAN AND THE WASP in a lead role and according to sources at DEADLINE, it as the super-villain, KANG THE CONQUEROR.

The sources close to the trad also mentioned that there could be a twist with how the character of Kang is featured in future films, but as of now he is likely to be one of the main villains in the next installment in the franchise. In the comics Kang is a time-traveling entity who had battles with everyone from Thor to Spider-Man to the entire Avengers team.

Peyton Reed who has directed the first two ANT-MAN films is returning to helm the third one which stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. 

Another interesting fact about the character is that he is a possible descendant of the FANTASTIC FOUR’s Reed Richards from the future more so the 31st century. So this may have a tie-in to the future FF film in the MCU but we have to see.

Lisseth Chavez

The cast around the misfits known as DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is steadily growing as it has now added former CHICAGO P.D. star, Lisseth Chavez as Esperanze “Spooner” Cruz heading into the show’s sixth season.  

Cruz who is described as tough and self-sufficient,lives off the grid, devising ingenious tech for the detection of — and defense against — space aliens. And while some might call her paranoid, she calls it being prepared. A survivor of a childhood alien encounter, Spooner now believes she has the ability to communicate telepathically with aliens — making her the perfect recruit for Waverider captains Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and the Legends who, in season six, will be hunting down extraterrestrials who have been displaced throughout history. If you recall in the season finale Sara is abducted by aliens.

Executive producer Grainne Godfrey goes on to describe Chavez’ Cruz by saying that “She is a young Latinx woman from Texas, who was kidnapped by aliens and has a third for vengeance. She’s not going to be the loveable losers that we normally have, she’s going to be pretty tough and gives it to the other Legends and they’re going to have to react to her and I think it’s going to throw them off their feet a little bit.”

The LEGENDS will return for a sixth season in 2021.
