Entertainment Jameela Jamil Joins Marvel's 'She-Hulk' Series as Villain Titania
Kevin Feige Says Criticism of Whitewashed 'Doctor Strange' Casting Was a 'Wake-Up Call'
Five years later, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has acknowledged that the company made a mistake in how it handled casting for one of the main characters in 2016's "Doctor Strange" — and said he considers the whole thing a "wake-up call." We're talking of course about the casting of Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, a character who, as originated in the comics, was an Asian man. It was heavily criticized at the time as yet another example of whitewashing characters of color, and particularly for the perception that Marvel had not only taken away a potential role for an Asian actor, but had given it to a white person.
"The Good Place" alum Jameela Jamil has joined the cast of Marvel's "She-Hulk" TV series in a villain role, according to multiple media reports.
Jamil will play Titania on the Disney+ show, which stars Tatiana Maslany in the lead role of Jennifer Walters, a lawyer and cousin of Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). In the "She-Hulk" comics on which the show will be based, Jennifer gains her "Hulk" powers through an emergency blood transfusion from Bruce.
Ruffalo will reprise his role in the series, as will Tim Roth, who starred as Emil Blonsky/The Abomination in 2008's "The Incredible Hulk." "She-Hulk" also stars Ginger Gonzaga and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
