She-Hulk: Lawyer at Right premieres on Disney+ on Thursday, and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans can’t wait to see Tatiana Maslany make her debut as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk. Naturally, the show’s cast has been busy with their press tour, and many of the cast have been talking about which Marvel characters they’d like to cross paths with. While Maslany was chatting with Kevin McCarthy, the idea of crossing Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) came about since the two characters break the fourth wall in their respective projects. Maslany said she’d love to see She-Hulk and Deadpool work together, and her reason is more personal than you might think.
“There’s a very meta thing to it. Deadpool is from Regina, Saskatchewan, right? Where I’m from. So that was a situation meant to be. I think we both should be at Regina, but I’m Tat in Regina and Deadpool is Deadpool but then it’s Ryan Reynolds and She-Hulk, and we get really weird with that,” Maslany suggested. Reynolds liked the post, which means this hilarious Canadian crossover might not be entirely out of the question. You can watch Maslany’s interview below:

She-Hulk is a nine-episode series that welcomes a slew of returning MCU stars, including Mark Ruffalo as Smart Hulk, Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/Abomination. The cast also includes Ginger Gonzaga, Josh Segarra, Jameela Jamil, Jon Bass and Renée Elise Goldsberry. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kat Coiro and Jessica Gao. Co-executive producers are Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth.
Recently, Maslany shared some insight into the dynamic between Walters and his cousin, Bruce Banner.
“They’re cousins, obviously. Bruce is basically trying to take Jen under his wing and teach her how to be a Hulk, and Jen says, ‘Go away. Stop it, I’m not going to be a superhero,’” Maslany explained. . “They have an antagonistic thing. They like each other a lot, and they’re actually really close, but that’s a bridge too far. She’s not interested in that. It was really fun playing that dynamic with Mark. .”
As for Deadpool, it was reported after the Disney/Fox merger that Disney would be moving forward with a deadpool 3, and it looks like Reynolds is currently training for his comeback. Fans are hoping for sequel news to be announced at D23 next month.
