‘She-Hulk’ Disney Plus Series Adds Renée Elise Goldsberry
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.
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 the film, she appeared in the Disney Plus 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.”
Kat Coiro will serve as director and executive producer on “She-Hulk.” She will direct the pilot and additional episodes of the series. Jessica Gao is writing the series and serves as executive producer and showrunner.
