Megan Thee Stallion is a successful rapper with numerous hit songs, including Savage, Hot Girl Summer, and Cry Baby. Now, the artist is making her way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, testing her acting abilities in one of the biggest franchises in the world. The 27-year-old singer has limited acting experience, however, she has appeared in the television series P-Valley and Good Girls in the past.
Now, in an interview with The Cut, she’s confirmed she will join the Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Two episodes have been released in Marvel’s latest streaming series, but the famous rapper has yet to appear. Rumors began to circulate earlier this year of Megan’s involvement, as her stunt double, Marché Day, added the singer to her list of roles in April.

During her interview, the rapper cited Queen Latifah and Ice Cube as inspiration, as the two mega-stars seamlessly transitioned from musicians into successful acting careers. She says, “When I look at them, it inspired me to take it further than just music.” She continues and discusses her aspirations for more than just acting, saying, “I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress — I feel like I’m also going to be a director and I’m also going to be a producer.”
She-Hulk follows Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) as she navigates the complicated life of an attorney who also happens to be a 6-foot-7-inch super-powered Hulk. Megan will star alongside Mark Ruffalo, Ginger Gonzaga, Steve Coulter, Tim Roth, and Jameela Jamil in the series. You can catch episode 3 of She-Hulk, arriving on Disney+ on Sept. 1.
What Is Megan Thee Stallion’s Role in She-Hulk
Although Megan Thee Stallion confirmed her involvement in She-Hulk, it appears her role in the series is still a mystery. It’s rumored she will play a fictionalized version of herself, however, the need for a stunt double raises a few interesting questions. Clearly, the rapper will be involved in an action sequence of some kind and is set to appear in a few episodes throughout the season.
Despite no official confirmation on Megan’s role, fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief as Megan Thee Stallion is officially canon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During The Cut interview, the artist revealed her plans on making her way to another project, A24’s musical comedy, F*****g Identical Twins. She also said she would like to join a Bring It On reboot if that ever became a possibility, however, for now, Megan will enjoy her time in the Marvel spotlight when she debuts in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. You can catch new episodes of the series every Thursday until the season finale, airing on Oct. 12.
