Marvel’s She-Hulk series has wrapped filming in Atlanta (with some extra stuff expected to shoot in Los Angeles), but it looks like another Marvel Comics character is part of the show.
An IMDB listing from stunt woman Angela Lynn Hollis seemingly reveals that Runa from The Mighty Valkyries might be appearing in the show. The first time it’s been hinted that Asgardians or New Asgard could be involved in the show.
Hollis isn’t a new hire for Marvel Studios as she previously worked on Ms. Marvel and The Falcon & The Winter Soldier in Atlanta. Along with recent work on Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.
Runa is a relatively new character to Marvel Comics and likely won’t have a huge role.
We recently had confirmation of the inclusion of Ben Kingsley’s Trevor Slattery in Shang-Chi, thanks to his stunt double, making these listings something to consider. Kingsley would show up on the red carpet premiere.
The 10-episode series will be directed by Kat Coiro and Anu Valia with Emmy-winner Jessica Gao (Rick & Morty) set as head writer. Its crew consists of cinematographer Florian Ballhaus (RED, The Devil Wears Prada), production designer Elena Albanese (Lovecraft Country), costume designer Ann Foley (Godzilla Vs. Kong, Altered Carbon), and stunt coordinator Monique Ganderton (Loki, Avengers: Endgame).
Led by Tatiana Maslany (Black Orphan) as Jennifer Walters, the Disney+ project will officially see the return of Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky aka Abomination (the new updated design recently revealed in Shang-Chi trailer), Mark Ruffalo back as Banner aka Professor Hulk, Jameela Jamil (The Good Place) was recently announced to be playing the super-strong villain Titania, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Amelia, Josh Segarra, and Ginger Gonzaga.
Jennifer is the defense lawyer cousin of Avengers member Dr. Bruce Banner aka Hulk and after a blood transfusion from Bruce is granted her own Hulk powers becoming She-Hulk.
She-Hulk will debut on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
