"Orphan Black's" Tatiana Maslany is set to take on the role of She-Hulk.

The plot revolves around Maslany's character Jennifer Walters, who gets a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner better known as Hulk. After the transfusion, Walters has super strength and the Hulk's iconic green color.

But it's not a superhero show without a villain. That's where Jamil steps in as Walters' long-term arch-nemesis, Titania. In the original comic, Titania has both super strength and super stamina, according to Cinema Blend.

She-Hulk was written by Jim Shooter and Matt Zeck in 1984. Originally, the villain Titania pretended to be a superhero, according to Cinema Blend.

The comic is being transformed into a comedy that is expected to premiere in 2022 on Disney Plus, Deadline reported. The show's lead writer is Jessica Gao from "Rick and Morty." The series will be co-directed by Kat Coiro from "Single Parents" and Anu Valia of "Never Have I Ever."
