Tatiana Maslany is NOT cast in the titular role in She-Hulk. The Orphan Black star has denied being connected to the project, which comes as a shocker. When the news broke on September 18, not only fans celebrated but even Mark Ruffalo - who plays Hulk in the MCU congratulated the actress, which in hindsight looks so weird. "Welcome to the family, cuz," he wrote, sharing the news article. Well, he live-streamed 15 minutes of Thor: Ragnarok accidentally, so we would not be surprised if the studio is not willing to keep him in the loop with such big news.

In an interview with Regina Leader-Post recently, Tatiana was asked about being cast in She-Hulk. The actress said, "That actually isn’t a real thing and it’s like a press release that’s gotten out of hand. It’s totally not — I’ve been connected to these things in the past and press has gotten onto it, but it’s not actually a thing, unfortunately."

It is funny that in one month, nor the studio, neither the actress cared enough about fans to deny the speculations and squash the rumours. Although, it has been a trend for Marvel actors to deny casting until the official announcement comes through the studio. Paul Rudd denied being cast as Ant-Man. Not to forget that, Russo Brothers denied that Avengers 4 was subtitled Endgame.

She-Hulk is an upcoming web-series that will debut on Disney+. It is a part of MCU's phase 4, where series like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Ms Marvel is also taking place.
