Tatiana Maslany As She-Venom could have been an exciting choice. The cast of actors and actresses who play heroes and villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is remarkable. Even with such a large talent pool, several well-known actors were passed over for parts in the hit superhero film series.
When Tatiana Maslany first appears as She-Hulk in the MCU, fans will have to wait a little longer to see her. The new Disney+ show mashes the superhero and courtroom comedy genres. Maslany came close to joining a different Marvel world but in a much smaller position. A role reversal may have prevented her from becoming She-Hulk.
Tatiana Maslany was nearly cast in Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off Venom, starring opposite Tom Hardy, before being cast as the protagonist in the MCU series.
During an interview on Scott Aukerman’s Comedy Bang Bang podcast, guest star Tatiana Maslany claimed she was almost cast as She-Venom before being cast as She-Hulk.
Tatiana Maslany disputed Aukerman when he suggested Marvel had been attempting to get her involved for some time, noting that she was the one who had been in contact with the studio. Marvel rejected her multiple times.
Aukerman: “You have not been part of the MCU up ’til now. They’ve been trying to get you.”
Maslany: “I’ve been trying to get them.”
Maslany: “They’ve rejected me multiple times.”
She-Hulk actress Tatiana Maslany was asked about her history with Marvel by Aukerman, who prompted her to divulge the Marvel role she had auditioned for.
Aukerman: “For what? What did you try out for?”
Maslany: “Venom. Not for Venom, unfortunately. But for Venom’s girlfriend or whatever.”
Aukerman: “Venom’s girlfriend?”
Maslany: “(laughs) Yeah.”
Aukerman: “Not even Tom Hardy– Eddie Brock’s girlfriend, just Venom’s girlfriend?”
Maslany: “(laughs) Just Venom’s girlfriend. Just the symbiote’s girlfriend.”
Aukerman: “Who was [Venom] trying to date?”
Maslany: “She was cut out. (laughs)”
In the end, Michelle Williams was cast as Eddie Brock’s ex-girlfriend Anne Weying in Sony’s Venom movies. The actress looks content with her current situation, so everything seems to work out for her.
Since the Disney+ series features comedy elements paired with action-adventure parts, Maslany’s impending MCU debut as Jennifer Walters, also known as She-Hulk, enables the actress to utilize her ability in more than one manner. Praise from fans and her She-Hulk co-stars has been pouring in for the actress, proving that her move to the MCU was smart.
