The MCU has found their She-Hulk.

According to Deadline, Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black, Perry Mason) will star in the upcoming Disney+ series as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk. Reps for Maslany and Disney haven’t responded to requests for comment at this time.

She-Hulk, like her cousin, is big and green, having received the Hulk powers from her cousin Bruce Banner following a blood transfusion. Unlike her cousin though, Jennifer retains her intelligence and personality from the get-go. She’s also a lawyer and has defended some of Marvel’s top heroes in her cases. So, all around, she’s a badass and we stan.

Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Bruce Banner/Hulk in the MCU, did take to Twitter to welcome his “cuz” to the family.

Adorable.

Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty) serves as the writer and showrunner for the upcoming series. Kat Coiro (Dead to Me, Marry Me) has also signed on to direct the pilot along with several other episodes of the series. Other MCU projects that are in the works are Loki, Hawkeye, Ms Marvel, and Moon Knight.

Fans, meanwhile, are eagerly awaiting The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision, which have been delayed due to COVID-19.
