She-Hulk Star Wants To Explore Titania's Doctor Doom Roots

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Jameela Jamil reveals that she wants to explore Titania’s roots and her dynamic with Doctor Doom. The latest MCU show to release on Disney+, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law chronicles the life of Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) as she attempts to balance her career as a California lawyer with her newfound ability to transform into the superhero She-Hulk. The series was a hit with critics, many of whom praised its unique tone, sense of humor, and Maslany’s leading performance. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law came to a conclusion earlier this month with no word yet on whether it will get a season 2.

Although Maslany’s She-Hulk faces off against several antagonists throughout the show, Jamil’s Titania is a central villain character across a handful of episodes. The super-powered influencer first interrupts Walter’s court appearance in the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law debut episode and later attempts to trademark the name She-Hulk for her line of beauty products. Walters defeats Titania at every turn in earlier episodes, with the wedding fight in episode 6 ultimately seeing the villain defeated and humiliated seemingly for good. Titania makes one additional cameo appearance in the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law finale, and it’s currently unclear if she will return in any capacity in the MCU moving forward.

At a recent New York Comic Con roundtable interview, which was attended by GamesRadar, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Jameela Jamil comments on what she would like to see from Titania’s future. Jamil reveals that she’s hoping for a movie or show that delves into Titania’s backstory, including her connection to iconic Marvel villain Doctor Doom. Check out Jamil’s full comment below:

Although Titania’s backstory isn’t really explored at all in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the character has a rich history in Marvel comics. In the source material, Titania actually gets her powers from Fantastic Four villain Doctor Doom and his superhuman augmentation process, which transforms her from high school loner Mary MacPherran into an overly confident and aggressive supervillain. Titania’s future in the MCU currently remains up in the air, and, even though rumors indicate that Marvel’s upcoming Fantastic Four will not feature Doctor Doom as the main villain, the character could still be introduced in a post-credits scene, thus paving the way for more Titania.

Although She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 1 earned strong reviews from most critics, it proved far more divisive among general audiences and MCU fans. It’s unclear if the show will return, but She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 2 currently seems like the most likely avenue for Titania’s MCU comeback. It’s possible that the upcoming Fantastic Four will create an opportunity for Titania to return in a feature-length movie, but Jamil’s villain is ultimately a relatively minor antagonist compared to the likes of Kang the Conqueror and Doctor Doom, possibly making her better-suited to continued Disney+ series appearances instead.
