Ginger Gonzaga is officially the “best friend” to Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk. While much about her role is being kept under wraps we do know Gonzaga will be co-starring as a series regular.
A comedic actress in Ted, I’m Dying Up Here, Wrecked, and Mixology. She also guest-starred in Netflix’s Space Force as Anabela Ysidro-Campos, a parody character inspired by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, will hopefully bring that comedic experience to the new 30-minute Disney+ series.
I’m beyond excited to join 💚#Shehulk!💚 We will be directed by #KatCairo! @ChairmanGao is gifting us her hilarious writing & I get to run amok w/ the insanely talented #tatianamaslaney.

Mark Ruffalo will also reprise his role as Jennifer’s famous cousin, Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Within the comic book realm, Bruce saved Jennifer’s life after an assassination attempt. However, his gamma irradiated blood transformed her into She-Hulk. But when transformed, Jennifer retains most of her personality and intelligence much like Avengers: Endgame’s Smart Hulk. She has even tried cases as She-Hulk, and is an expert in superhero law.
Marvel Studios will begin filming She-Hulk later this year.
