‘She-Hulk’ Disney+ Series Adds Renée Elise Goldsberry to Cast

Renée Elise Goldsberry is in talks to star in the She-Hulk series at Disney+, Variety confirmed. She joins previously announced series lead Tatiana Maslany and Ginger Gonzaga.

 

The series centers on lawyer Jennifer Walters (Maslany), cousin of Bruce Banner, who inherits his Hulk powers after she receives a blood transfusion from him. Unlike Bruce, however, when she hulks out Jennifer is able to retain most of her personality, intelligence, and emotional control. Details on the character Goldsberry would play are being kept under wraps.

Reps for Goldsberry and Marvel did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Goldsberry won a Tony Award in 2016 for her role as Angelica Schuyler in Hamilton. Her other Broadway credits include The Color Purple, The Lion King, and Dreamgirls. Onscreen, she has appeared in series such as Altered Carbon at Netflix, The Good Wife at CBS, and One Life to Live at ABC. In film, she appeared in the Disney+ recording of Hamilton that was released last year, and has starred in other projects like Waves and The House with a Clock in Its Walls.
