TVLine Items: Arrow Fave to She-Hulk, Shawn Ryan’s Netflix Series and More

Arrow vet Josh Segarra is crossing over from DC Comics to the Marvel side with a role in the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk, our sister site Deadline reports.

Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) stars as the titular superhero, aka Jennifer Walters, a cousin of Bruce Banner’s who is a savvy lawyer — and who has some of her cousin’s superpowers, thanks to an emergency blood transfusion. No details are currently available about Segarra’s character.

The cast also includes Jameela Jamil (The Good Place) as Titania, a supervillain with incredible strength; Renée Elise Goldsberry (Girls5evaHamilton) as Amelia; and Ginger Gonzaga (I’m Dying Up Here) as Jennifer’s best friend. Additionally, Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role as The Hulk, while Tim Roth will return as his Hulk character of The Abomination.

Segarra, of course, played the memorable Big Bad Adrian Chase (aka Prometheus) during Season 5 of Arrow. His other TV credits include The Moodys, FBI, The Other Two and Chicago P.D.
