As Phase Four of the MCU continues to roll out on Disney+, future projects are waiting in the wings, ready to enter into production.
One of these upcoming titles is She-Hulk, a new Disney+ series expected to launch sometime in 2022. While little is known about the show, except for its legal-comedy premise, casting information continues to trickle out.
So far, Mark Ruffalo's Hulk and Tim Roth's Abomination have been confirmed to be coming back for the series. Other reports have hinted at some interesting story developments, including a possible Skrull appearance.
Even as production seems imminent on the series, many details are still vague, including who certain actors will even be playing...
HAMILTON STAR JOINS SHE-HULK
According to an article from Deadline, actress Renée Elise Goldsberry is set to join the upcoming She-Hulk series. While little is known about this role, her character is reportedly named Amelia.
The actress is likely best known for her work in the hit musical Hamilton, though she has also appeared in Altered Carbon alongside MCU alum Anthony Mackie.
The first set photo of 'She-Hulk' showcasing Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters was revealed.
Renée Elise Goldsberry was reported to have joined the cast of 'She-Hulk' as Amelia.
Kat Coiro teased the start of filming for 'She-Hulk' as she posted an image of her wearing an elaborate mask including googles, with the caption "safety on set."
WHO IS AMELIA?
With nothing more announced about Goldsberry's role in She-Hulk, it is difficult to pin down exactly what sort of part the actress will be playing. The best friend role has already been taken by actress Ginger Gonzaga, so it's certainly possible that Goldsberry will be playing something more of a neutral or antagonistic character.
Looking to the comics, there are two Amelia's that exist within She-Hulk's world. On one hand, there is Amelia Voght, a low-level mutant villain with whom the Jade Giantess has come into conflict before. There is also Amelia Hopkins, an extremely minor side character from a particular run of She-Hulk comics. However, with such little general awareness of these two characters, it seems unlikely that they would be utilized in this upcoming show.
With such little information to work off of, it's hard to know what to expect from Goldsberry's Amelia. For fans particularly excited for this show, it seems like patience will be key.
