She-Hulk image shows how Tatiana Maslany looks like a comic book hero
A new Reddit image features She-Hulk star Tatiana Maslany in a striking resemblance to the titular comic book character during John Byrne’s run.
A new image shows just how much She-Hulk the actress, Tatiana Maslany, looks like the main character of the comics. After the release of a She-Hulk-centric streaming series was announced among a plethora of others by Kevin Feige at D23 Expo 2019, it wasn’t long before the Black orphan The star was cast for the role, announced just over a year later, in September 2020. The series is directed by Rick and morty writer, Jessica Gao, and Kat Coiro is committed to directing several episodes. The series is slated to arrive on Disney + in 2022.
Set in the continuity of the MCU, the superhero-comedy series itself is expected to revolve around the main character, Jennifer Walters (Maslany), a New York lawyer who inherits the powers of the Hulk from her cousin, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), after receiving a blood transfusion. However, as Banner would lose her intelligence and become her imposing alter ego, Jennifer instead retains her personality and intelligence, but acquires a similar amount of super strength. Alongside Maslany and Ruffalo, the series also cast Tim Roth, reprising his role as Abomination from The Incredible Hulk, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Amelia, Jameela Jamil as Titania and Ginger Gonzaga in a currently undisclosed role.
Reddit user henning-a recently posted an image to the site that highlights how Maslany looks like the comic book heroine. The image featured two photos that were edited together to create a side-by-side comparison of the two, featuring both an image of Maslany on social media and an image of John Byrne’s She-Hulk adaptation. This comparison highlighted the extraordinarily similar facial structure and individual facial features the two share, as well as the similar type of hairstyle both sport. Take a look at the picture below:
While Maslany is the first official actress to take on the role of She-Hulk in an upcoming TV series, she is not the first actress to be considered or offered the role. In the early 90s, a live-action She-Hulk The film was in development under the direction of the late screenwriter Larry Cohen, with actress Brigitte Nielsen in the lead role. During the development of the film, promotional images of the actress in costume were even released. However, over the years, the movie never fully materialized and was eventually scrapped altogether. Even with this past failure, the character is now able to find the limelight alongside her cousin while also being played by an actress so true to the character’s appearance in the comics.
The fact that the actress of a comic book character resembles the source material so closely can be seen as a hugely positive aspect for fans, who want only their favorite characters to be done justice on big and small screens. Therefore, it has not been proven that this casting choice has so far been a very good choice on the part of Marvel Studios, as Maslany has clearly already understood the visual aspect of the character for her. Fans will now have to wait and see if the star’s performance as a character holds up when She-Hulk releases on Disney + in 2022.
