Tim Roth Breaks The Silence On His Return As Abomination In She-Hulk

In surprising news that nobody saw coming after she publicly denied the reports, Tatiana Maslany was officially confirmed to be headlining Disney Plus show She-Hulk months after the news first broke. Mark Ruffalo was also announced as part of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series, and given the studio's apparent desire to base Phase Four around a lot of torch passing, Jennifer Walters could end the first season as the franchise's premiere gamma-irradiated superhero.

A leaked casting call teased as much by hinting the character would go on to become a key member of the Avengers, but the most shocking reveal surrounding She-Hulk was the return of Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky. After all, Marvel have almost completely ignored The Incredible Hulk in the dozen years since it was released, bar a fleeting reference by Bruce in The Avengers to breaking Harlem and the reintroduction of William Hurt’s Thaddeus Ross in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Roth didn’t leave much of an impression in Louis Letterier’s blockbuster, either, but that wasn’t through any fault of his own. Abomination’s arc followed the standard ‘villain is an evil mirror version of the hero’ route we’ve seen countless times before in the comic book genre, and by the third act he wasn’t even required, as his hulking CGI alter ego took center stage.

Earlier this week, though, Roth broke the silence on his return with a social media post, which you can check out below:

The last we saw of Emil Blonsky, he was being taken into custody by General Ross’ forces, so he’s presumably spent a long time in prison for his crimes. She-Hulk‘s title heroine also happens to be lawyer specializing in superhero cases, so the plot could potentially follow her trying to keep him behind bars, only for him to escape and end up getting taken down the old fashioned way instead.
