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. 

Earlier this week on Tuesday it was announced that Kat Coiro would direct several episodes, including the pilot, for the series as well as executive produce, along with RICK AND MORTY writer, Jessica Gao to lead the writers room.

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.
