The first image of She-Hulk villain Titania sparked some backlash from Marvel fans, but Titania actress Jameel Jamil has spoken out in defense of the character’s MCU look.
She-Hulk will introduce Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters, cousin of Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, to the MCU. The Disney Plus series sees Jennifer become a hulking green behemoth like her cousin while she attempts to continue in her legal career.
Jennifer ends up representing superpowered individuals in court. One such superhuman character who is set to appear in She-Hulk is Jameela Jamil’s Titania.
Titania’s MCU Look
Following the online reveal of the first image of Jameela Jamil’s Titania in She-Hulk, a few fans confessed they were less than impressed with the supervillain’s appearance. Jamil took fan doubts in her stride, though.
Acknowledging the not-so-enthusiastic responses on Twitter, Jameela Jamil revealed the photo showed her “after a 14 hour stunt day,” saying it shows her “Just after being upside down.”
In response to another tweet, she also said fans will “get [the costume] when the show comes out. It fits the character.” Check out Jameela Jamil’s full comments below:
While little is known of Titania’s role in the Disney Plus series, given She-Hulk‘s supposedly more comedic direction it is possible that this big-haired, tasseled costume isn’t meant to be taken too seriously. Marvel fans will get to discover the thinking behind Titania’s costume when She-Hulk arrives next month.
