Prior to playing She-Hulk, Tatiana Maslany tried out for a different Marvel role

Tatiana Maslany recalls being rejected for a different Marvel movie role before being cast as Jennifer Walters in the MCU’s new She-Hulk show. She-Hulk: Attorney At Law star Tatiana Maslany reveals she was rejected for a different Marvel project before being cast.

After launching WandaVision at the start of 2021, Marvel Studios is expanding its Disney+ footprint with its eighth television show. She-Hulk: Attorney At Law introduces a brand new hero in Jennifer Walters a.k.a. She-Hulk, who follows the likes of Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel.

One of the fresh faces joining the Multiverse Saga is actress Tatiana Maslany, who is best known for her role in Orphan Black. This will be her first appearance in the franchise, like Shang-Chi, the Eternals, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel. This superhero-comedy will also feature familiar characters like Bruce Banner/Hulk, Abomination, and Wong, the current Sorcerer Supreme.

As part of the film, Charlie Cox will make a cameo appearance as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. Its debut this Thursday, August 18, has been praised by early reactions for its humor and refreshing take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However, Maslany would not be starring in the film if things had gone differently. Maslany told the Comedy Bang Bang Podcast that she previously tried joining Sony’s Spider-Man Universe franchise through Venom during the press run for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.

The actor wanted to play Venom’s girlfriend, but she was rejected.MCU actors have either previously attempted to join the Marvel universe only to fail, or were recruited by Marvel Studios only to be rejected. Robert Downey Jr. was considered to play Doctor Doom before he was cast as Iron Man.

Hemsworth auditioned multiple times for Thor, while Evans repeatedly turned down Captain America before accepting it. Giancarlo Esposito recently revealed he met with Marvel for a role in Loki but passed in hopes of getting a bigger role. Hopefully, he’ll follow in Maslany’s footsteps and become a key character in the Multiverse Saga.

Maslany’s situation ended up working out for the best. The performance she delivered in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, in particular, was praised, proving Marvel Studios’ decision to cast her was the right one. In addition to her show, She-Hulk will appear in future MCU projects, such as the Multiverse Saga’s final Avengers film.
