Disney+’s She-Hulk series has begun filming in Atlanta
The now filming listing on Georgia’s official state website confirms that production on Marvel Studios’ upcoming She-Hulk series has finally begun in Trilith Studios in Atlanta and is expected to shoot until August 30. The filming start for the Tatiana Maslany-led MCU series was previously delayed last year due to the ongoing pandemic. This marks Marvel Studios’ third Disney+ project that is currently in production along with Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye which have both been filming since last year.
The production start also comes after Hamilton star Renée Elise Goldsberry was recently cast for the role of Amelia. Maslany and Goldsberry will also be joined by fellow MCU newcomer Ginger Gonzaga.
The She-Hulk series will be led by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Tatiana Maslany who will take on the titular role as Jennifer Walters, the project is being described as a legal comedy that will consist of ten half-hour long episodes. The project was first announced by Marvel’s chief creative officer Kevin Feige at the 2019 D23 along with two other MCU shows Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight. This marks the iconic superheroes’ live-action debut who are also expected to be featured in future MCU films.
Joining Maslany is MCU star Mark Ruffalo as he returns as Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Tim Roth has also joined the series, who will be reprising his role as Abomination from the Edward Norton-led The Incredible Hulk.
The series is being developed and written by Jessica Gao, who is the Emmy-winning scribe behind Rick and Morty‘s acclaimed Season 3 episode “Pickle Rick.” Kat Cairo (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dead to Me) and Anu Valia have also signed to direct and executive produce.
She-Hulk debuted in Marvel Comics’ “Savage She-Hulk” #1 in 1980, created by writer Stan Lee and artist John Buscema. Her alter ego is Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner/Hulk, who after being shot is provided a blood transfusion from Bruce that turns her into a similar creature.
