Megan Thee Stallion to join MCU in ‘She-Hulk’ on Disney+

Introducing Megan Thee Marvel Star.

A cut profile of Megan Thee Stallion revealed Monday that the rapper is ready to make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The 27-year-old sensation has been cast in the new Disney+ series as well as the A24 musical comedy F – Identical Twins.

Disney and Marvel officials did not immediately respond to the Times request for comment Monday. New episodes of She-Hulk premiere Thursdays on Disney+.

Created by Jessica Gao, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters – the cousin of Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner (aka Hulk) – who suddenly gains the ability to transform herself into a green giant after she was exposed to Banner’s radioactive blood. The Cut did not specify which character Megan Thee Stallion will play in the show, which also stars Jameela Jamil, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Benedict Wong, Charlie Cox, and others.

The Savage hitmaker previously guest-starred on the NBC crime series Good Girls and the Starz drama P-Valley. The Grammy winner told The Cut that she originally auditioned to play Mercedes (Brande Evans) in P-Valley, which is about dancers at a fictional Mississippi strip club.

“I just came up and was reading for Mercedes,” explained Megan Thee Stallion, “but when I saw Brandee play Mercedes, I thought: obviously I haven’t been here. She is so perfect for this role.”

Impressed by her talent, P-Valley creator Katori Hall instead invited Megan Thee Stallion to star as her alter-ego Tina Snow in a 2022 episode of the series.

“This young lady has swag. She has power,” Hall told the cut. “She has something to say. She is obviously beautiful to look at. This is a young artist.”

“She has it in her tool bag to do everything,” added J. Alphonse Nicholson, who plays Lil Murda on P-Valley. “You could see her in a historical play, whether she’s playing someone in the 1960s trying to show up and make it, or she’s in some seminal sci-fi movie and she’s busting her ass out here and at some Marvel -Stuff fights. I think she could bring anything to the table just because she has that glow.”

News of Megan Thee Stallion’s Marvel casting has surfaced less than a month after the release of her second studio album, Traumazine, which explores painful emotions and events experienced by the recording artist.

“My alter egos were people that I had to be back then, to be like my armor, like my shield,” Megan Thee Stallion told The Cut.

“I had to be hot girl Meg back then. I had to be Tina Snow then. I had to be Megan Thee Stallion back then… I love this album because I feel like I’m the only one talking. It’s only Megan. I don’t have to be someone else.”
