The upcoming She-Hulk series is one of the most anticipated projects coming to Disney+. Many fans are ecstatic to see Jennifer Walters make her live-action debut. It wasn’t until Disney’s Investors Day that Tatianna Maslany got confirmed as the Gamma-powered lawyer. The show will be Marvel’s first attempt at a half-hour courtroom comedy. So far, we only know that Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner and Tim Roth‘s Abomination will reprise their roles in the series. Luckily, Deadline revealed that a supporting role got cast.
Ginger Gonzaga joins the production in the role of Walter’s currently unnamed best friend. Deadline doesn’t offer much info on what role she is playing specifically. She has worked on several comedy shows, such as Jim Carrey‘s Kidding, Mixology, and The Morning After. Gonzaga may be playing Jill Stevens, who briefly appeared in Savage She-Hulk #2. In the comics, she was Jennifer Walters’s best friend since childhood. Illuminerdi also reported they are looking into casting a character that fits the description of Angie Huang. She was Jennifer’s assistant in the comics. They may have combined both of these characters into one.
She-Hulk will reportedly begin filming its ten-episode count in the next few months. Currently, it seems likely it will release on the Disney+ streaming service sometime next year. The series tapped Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao with Kat Coiro and Anu Valia directing the episodes. Illuminerdi also reported they are looking into casting Augustus Pugliese and Titiana, so we might get some news on their casting as we near the production start.
