She-Hulk's Tim Roth Teases Marvel Return, Praises Tatiana Maslany and Mark Ruffalo's Performances

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is just a few weeks away from debuting on Disney+, and it will be bringing a number of Marvel Cinematic Universe newbies and veterans into the mix. Among them is Tim Roth's take on Emil Blonsky / Abomination, who will be returning to the franchise after debuting in The Incredible Hulk, and briefly having a stint in last year's Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings. In a recent interview with Forbes, Roth discussed how the culture of superhero projects has changed since 2008's The Incredible Hulk, and also praised Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk actress Tatiana Maslany and Bruce Banner / Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo.

"It's as real as that gets now. When we were doing it initially, it was pretty unusual. It was pre-Iron Man, and those Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau changed it all. For me, what we were doing felt like a big-budget indie. It had a bit of that going on. Trying to bring that kind of world to life was good and crazy. Again, it was one of those I did for my kids because I thought they would get a kick out of it at school as they were much younger. Coming back, I didn't know what to expect. Once I started shooting on it, I didn't know how to go about my business, and it was a bit disconcerting. Tatiana Maslany is incredible, and She-Hulk is a comedy, and she's bloody good at comedy but, to be fair, she's pretty, pretty good at everything. When Mark Ruffalo showed up to do his stuff that I was involved in and saw the two of them interacting, it was a penny drop moment for me, and I went, 'Oh, that's what we're doing. Oh, okay,' and then I knew what to do. Basically, on the first segment I was involved in, I got some serious direction from them about we go about our business there, and then it was all playtime. It was a lot of fun."

Roth was also asked about the novelty of starring alongside his second incarnation of the Hulk, and teased his offscreen chemistry with Ruffalo.

"Yeah, I was like, 'You've changed,'" Roth revealed with a laugh. "It's kind of fun. We used to hang around and muck about between takes, and we had a nice time. I very much respect Mark as an actor, so even under those bizarre and wonderful circumstances, that one was a treasure."

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk.
