She-Hulk is in line with the shows that Marvel has for Phase 4 and Jameela Jamil finally confirms her casting in the series alongside Tatiana Maslany portraying the titular character of Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner. Jamil even shared her excitement to be part of the ever-growing and expanding family of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Jamil shared in her official Twitter account a video of her doing some fight training and she captioned it, “GAH! I’ve peaked in silliness. I’m so excited! #Marvel #MCU #SheHulk #AnythingIsPossible” In the video, she showed her excitement saying, “I can’t believe I get to say this but… Fighting my way through the MCU, coming to you in 2022!” She even put a goofy photo of her as a child to end the video.
It has been rumored that Jamil will be playing the supervillain Titania/ Mary MacPherran in She-Hulk. As she confirmed her inclusion in the upcoming show, the speculations only grow as to the role she would be playing since she seems to be preparing for some hand-to-hand combat which could be action scenes, possibly against Maslany’s character. The series also confirmed the return of Mark Ruffalo as Hulk.
