warning: Strong woman Spoilers ahead.
The cameo came quickly and hard for the first three episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
We all knew Mark Ruffalo would play an important role as Bruce Banner, the star’s cousin. Tatiana MaslanyJane Walters. But there have also been notable appearances by Abomination (Tim Roth) and Wong (Benedict Wong), with Daredevil (Charlie Cox) is still coming.
This week’s episode doesn’t necessarily feature a major Marvel Cinematic Universe player (Until now?), but only one of the biggest hip-hop stars in the world: Megan Thee Stallion.
Rapper-turned-actress Megan Pete was born to play her, though before her debut we found out she was impersonating the shape-shifting Light Elf from New Asgard, defrauding Jen’s legal savvy rival Dennis Bukowski (Drew Matthews) out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in a scheme catfishing
“There is only one Megan Thay Stallion,” Stallion, who appears towards the end of the episode, announced as Bukowski takes the Light Elf on trial. In the episode’s post-credits scene, Jen goes on a full tour with “Hot Girl Summer” and “Savage” rappers.
In interviews with Yahoo Entertainment (see above), Director/Executive Producer kat koiro And star Maslany explained how Stallion was recruited into the show — and what it was like to work with her (er, twerk).
“The role was written as a beautiful celebrity who has not dated Denis Bukowski in a million years. Those were the standards,” says Cuero. [who costars as the villainous influencer Titania] I actually worked with and raised Megan very casually and we all lost our minds.
“Meghan is not only beautiful and talented, but she’s also this very strong and strong woman who is very bold. So objectively she fits in with her.” Strong woman. Then we found out that Tatiana is the biggest Megan Thee Stallion fan in the world.”
Maslany was clearly overjoyed – especially when it came to the last minute of the episode.
“[It was] says the actress. “An absolute dream. I can’t believe I have to do that. I can’t believe it at the moment. I’ve been training my whole life since a moment like this.
“It’s genius. It was awesome.”
