Last month, it was widely reported that Jameela Jamil had joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series “She-Hulk.” The Good Place star was to reportedly play the infamous villain Titania.
Despite not revealing her character role, the actress has now confirmed the casting news via her Twitter account with footage of her practicing some stunt training for the series. You can see that tweet below:

Jamil is best known for her role as Tahani Al-Jamil in the NBC comedy The Good Place. She also currently hosts the TBS game show The Misery Index and serves as a judge on the HBO Max competition series Legendary.
“She-Hulk” is being described as a 30-minute legal comedy. Following an injury, Jennifer Walters receives an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, and acquires a milder version of his Hulk condition. As such, Walters becomes a large powerful green-hued version of herself while still largely retaining her personality. In particular, she retains her intelligence and emotional control, although, like Hulk, she still becomes stronger if enraged.
Previously announced cast includes Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Ginger Gonzaga, and Tim Roth will return as the Abomination. Mark Ruffalo will also reprise his role as Bruce Banner in the series.
Kat Coiro will serve as series director, from a script penned by Jessica Gao (Rick and Morty).
“She-Hulk” is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia and is expected to arrive on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
