American rapper, Megan Thee Stallion has been confirmed to appear as a cast in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest series of She-Hulk: Attorney of Law.
The announcement was made in a recent interview with New York’s Magazine The Cut where Megan officially stated that she had been cast in She-Hulk.
The Houston rapper went further to talk about her first debut as an actress which took place earlier this month with a guest appearance in Star’s P Valley. She also opened up on her aspirations as an actress naming Queen Latifah and Ice Cube as inspirations.
“When I look at them (Queen Latifah and Ice Cube), it inspires me to take it further than just music,” she explained. “I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress – I feel like I’m also going to be a director and I’m also going to be a producer.”
Megan’s P valley co-star Alphonse Nicholson also spoke to The Cut about the ‘WAP’ rapper’s potential as an actress. “I think she has it in her tool bag to do anything,” he said. “You could see her in a period piece, whether she’s playing someone in the 1960s trying to come up and make it, or whether she’s in a futuresque sci-fi film and she’s out here whooping ass and fighting on some Marvel stuff.”
She-Hulk is a comedy series that follows Jennifer Walters (Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany) as she navigates life as a lawyer and superpowered hulk. Mark Ruffalo, Benedict Wong, Tim Roth, Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Charlie Cox, Jon Bass, and Renée Elise Goldsberry are also in the cast. The latest series premiered on Aug. 18 and will continue its nine-episode run through October 13th.
Stallion’s role in She-Hulk remains undisclosed keeping fans of the Disney series anticipating and excited about the character she’s set to play. Apart from She-Hulk, Megan Thee Stallion is also set to star in A24’s upcoming R-rated musical F*cking Identical Twins.
