The cast of Marvel’s She-Hulk series for Disney+ has grown a little larger as Deadline has reported that Hamilton‘s Renée Elise Goldsberry has signed on to star alongside Tatiana Maslany.
She-Hulk will be a half-hour legal comedy, something Marvel obviously hasn’t attempted before, that centers on Jennifer Walters (Maslany), an attorney who has powers similar to her cousin, Bruce Banner, but unlike her cousin, she’s able to retain much of her intelligence and emotional control. There aren’t many details on who Renée Elise Goldsberry will be playing in She-Hulk, only that she’s been cast as a character named Amelia. Ginger Gonzaga is also onboard to play Walters’ best friend, and it was also announced last year that Mark Ruffalo would be reprising his role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk and that Tim Roth would also be returning as The Abomination, a role he hasn’t played since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Renée Elise Goldsberry is likely best known for playing Angelica Schuyler in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s blockbuster musical Hamilton, but she’s also appeared in One Life to Live, The Good Wife, The Following, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The House with a Clock in its Walls, Altered Carbon, and more.
Production on She-Hulk is expected to begin soon, and the ten-episode series will debut on Disney+ in 2022. If you’re hungry for more Marvel goodness on the small-screen, the next episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will launch on Disney+ this Friday.
