    This is being produced as a comedy.

    This should be interesting.
    She-Hulk will be a half-hour comedy set in the legal world starring Orphan Black lead Tatiana Maslany. As such, it will follow a number of comic book story arcs featuring Jennifer Walters continuing her work as a lawyer while spending all of her time in Hulk mode. Now, the head of Marvel Studios has gone into more detail on the length of the first—and potentially only—season of the show......

    Given how of the MCU already has been heavily comedic - in particular, Guardians and Thor: Ragnarok being the standout examples - I'm curious how a Marvel TV series goes "Full comedy"

    Tatiana Maslany is a terrific actress could be really good



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Kind of a 80s law/business TV show feel to that last scene.. like maybe a tv ad being made in the 80s?

    Yeah looks that way especially showing Bruce in his Professor Hulk form.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,227 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    I'm not saying she has to be muscly but She-Hulk's legs look pretty skinny.

    When I first saw the still of her in that room and Hulk, I thought it was a kid at first.



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,102 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Orphan Black crossover where she Hulk is simply a clone that went wrong? 😁

    Wondered aloud in another thread if the Hulk will be CGI like her male counterpart, or just Maslany with some digital accentuation / colouring?



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,547 ✭✭✭✭ flazio


    Well She Hulk is supposed to be 8ft tall so there's going to have to be some CGI trickery there. Either that or employ some Lord of the Rings forced perspective (Small = far away)



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,102 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Presumably the CGI route cos the MCU is positively allergic to in-camera FX. Heck I'd not even assume they'll use green makeup, rather than some digital correction.

    This and Moon Knight would be the two upcoming shows I have an eye on. Maslany is a critically underappreciated actor after Orphan Black; once again Marvel casts well



  • Registered Users Posts: 30,137 ✭✭✭✭ Penn


    Given how they're modifying Ms Marvel's powers to make CGI easier, I imagine the actress will just be painted green and touched up with a little CGI, but just be normal height/stature other than that. Save the CGI budget for Hulk and Abomination since their appearance already needs CGI to match their film appearance.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985


    Maslany is fantastic in Orphan Black to which was critically acclaimed, not sure how she is underappreciated by the critics since? she's not exactly been prolific in her roles after that show ended.



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,102 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Critically acclaimed but the show seemed a bit of cult hit, rather than a popular, mainstream one. Maybe due to BBC America bring quite niche, who knows. While the show didn't seem to propel Maslany onwards (though who knows if that was her choice or not)



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 12,887 Mod ✭✭✭✭ iguana


    Her legs definitely looked super skinny. I'm surprised they didn't at least go with a muscular body double for some of the She-Hulk body shots. Obviously they are in a tough position if they are going to have Jennifer using her original body rather than having her remain as She-Hulk the majority of the time, as she has tended to for most of her comicbook history. But an actor with the stature of Frankie Adams would have been a better fit for the Hulk aspects.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985


    Yeah the show is certainly of cult status but she scooped many an award for it and even a Golden Globe nomination, I don't think it lies with the critics that she hasn't been propelled but what better platform than Marvel now if the show is a success even if acting chops aren't the forefront for a lot of these projects.

    I don't think it's a stretch to compare with Jodie Comer, when I was watching Orphan Black at the time I was sure I was watching someone who would be a mainstay in future big projects the same way when I first saw Jodie in Killing Eve (also BBC America).

    unless there are nips I wont be able to suspend disbelief

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    The show ended in 2017 since then she was a lead in Perry Mason on HBO and done a lot of voice acting for shows as well as been in 3/4 movies that pretty prolific I would say.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,907 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985


    Haven't seen Perry Mason but doesn't appear she is a lead more part of the main supporting cast but willing to accept she is.

    I didn't say she wasn't a capable working actress since but 3 indie movies with no significant promotion just isn't the trajectory I'd have assumed for her.

    On investigation the voice roles one stems from the same universe (relatively successful) but the other has already been cancelled after just one season.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,589 ✭✭✭ Homelander


    She was brilliant in Perry Mason, which is also a pretty good show.

    Also an expected appearance from....

    Matt Murdock which will lead to him being a major player across the MCU series on Disney+
