Emmy winning actress Tatiana Maslany who was last seen on critically acclaimed HBO series Perry Mason was reportedly cast as MCU’s She-Hulk. Rick and Morty’s Emmy winning scribe Jessica Gao is penning the series with Marvel Studios producing.
Kat Cairo known for her directing credits on popular shows like Brooklyn 99 and Modern Family is reportedly tapped to direct the pilot and several other episodes on the series.
