It’s been reported that five supporting roles for Marvel’s She-Hulk are currently being cast, which could include one of the character’s most famous nemeses: Titania.

With many of Marvel’s Disney Plus series already in production, or about to start very soon, there’s no surprise that She-Hulk has finally had a casting update.

The show is set to introduce Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jennifer Walters, into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Walters takes on the She-Hulk mantle after getting a blood transfusion from Banner.

Who will be in She-Hulk?

Plenty of rumors have been flying around about what’s in store for the upcoming series, including reports that She-Hulk will actually be a comedy.

Tatiana Maslany has been associated with the title character for some time now too, however, she has since debunked these rumors, claiming she has heard nothing about the role.

According to The Illuminerdi, Marvel is currently looking to cast five supporting characters, including the show’s villain.

There is mention of Walters’ two parents, who will be in their 60s; a ‘handsome’ male co-worker; a best friend, currently codenamed ‘Susie’; and a villain codenamed ‘Lucy’.

Though not confirmed, ‘Lucy’ is likely to be either Walters’ arch-nemesis from the comics, Titania, or even Ultima, who developed her abilities as a part of her father’s cult.

Whoever ‘Lucy’ is, she will inevitably have a big role, appearing in at least five episodes of the show. The character is apparently an influencer on social media, but also has a secret dark side. Once again, this could possibly point towards it being Titania before she meets Doctor Doom and gets her superhuman powers.

The Hulk is also expected to appear

One more person is expected to make a cameo on the show too, and that is none other than The Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo. He is rumored to have already signed up to return, which would also explain why he was quick to celebrate Maslany’s supposed casting as Jennifer Walters in September.

For now, Marvel fans have plenty to get excited about, with WandaVision being released on January 15, 2021, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, along with Loki, not far behind.

Production on She-Hulk will reportedly begin in February 2021, and it is expected to be available to stream on Disney Plus in 2022.
