“The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as a villain in the upcoming “She-Hulk” series.

Jamil will be taking on the role of Titania to face off against Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters a.k.a. She-Hulk in the said series, unidentified sources confirmed to Variety on June 10.

The actress will also be starring alongside Tim Roth, Ginger Gonzaga, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Mark Ruffalo, who reprises his role as the MCU’s Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk.

Roth will also be reprising his role as Emil Blonsky a.k.a. Abomination in the 2008 film “The Incredible Hulk,” where the titular hero was still played by Edward Norton before Ruffalo got on board.

FEATURED STORIES

In the show, Jennifer Walters is a lawyer and is Bruce Banner’s cousin who receives his gamma-based powers after getting a blood transfusion from him, according to the report.

She-Hulk, however, retains most of her personality, intelligence and emotional control similar to the Professor Hulk we saw in “Avengers: Endgame.”

Titania, whose real name is Mary MacPherran, is, meanwhile, a supervillain who was first introduced in the comics in 1984 by Jim Shooter.

While “She-Hulk” has no release date yet, it is expected to premiere on Disney Plus, like other Marvel series, in 2022. Ian Biong /ra
