She-Hulk Mixes "Smart Satire" with "Cool Feminist Commentary": Gonzaga

As time inches closer to the August 17th premiere of Disney+ & Marvel Studios' Tatiana Maslany-starring She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, series star Ginger Gonzaga (Kidding) is offering some insight into what the experience was like as well as what viewers can expect from a series that Gonzaga describes as "smart satire with a lot of really cool feminist commentary. During a Bell Media Upfront interview to promote her series True Lies, Gonzaga was asked about what she could share regarding the streaming series. "It was the best. Being in the Marvel world is a whole—you know, you're imagination gets to run wild," Gonzaga explained, adding that it was "weird normalizing" now being a part of the MCU). "You're in all these scenes with iconic characters and Tatiana Maslany from Canada, from Saskatchewan… she's such an amazing, natural actor, and so fun and so professional. I can't say enough things about her or it'll sound like I'm being dishonest, which is amazing. So it was very fun to work with her and be in 'She-Hulk' and be in the Marvel-verse. And you know, Mark Ruffalo is on the show, we have Smart-Hulk on the show, and it's just so fun and silly. Jessica Gao, our writer, made such a smart satire with a lot of really cool feminist commentary, so it's exciting."
