Tim Roth Addresses His MCU Future Beyond She-Hulk

Tim Roth has made a return to the MCU in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, but this is something that no one would have predicted even a couple of years ago considering his last appearance as Emil Blonsky/Abomination was well over a decade ago in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. However, having made his surprise cameo in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Roth has now taken center stage once again, but how long that lasts is something he doesn’t know.

The Incredible Hulk is one of the most disjointed movies when it comes to the continuity of the MCU, with the lead actor changing from Edward Norton to Mark Ruffalo and only William Hurt’s Thaddeus Ross having returned in other MCU movies, but Roth’s reappearance has gone some way to smooth over the cracks.


However, while this is still Emil Blonsky and still Roth playing him, there character is a little different his former appearance. The Abomination has undergone a redesign to bring him closer to his comic book style, and while Blosky’s history remains intact he is much more genial and accommodating in She-Hulk. While there is still not a clear picture on where Blonksy will be by the end of She-Hulk’s run, it seems that Roth is as much in the dark about the character’s future as anyone else. He told Screen Rant:

“I’ll tell you what, I don’t know anything. I don’t know what they want to do. It’s fine; that’s on them. That’s what they do. But it’s fun. This was hard work, but it was fun at the same time. The good ones to have in your life are.”

Tim Roth Loved Working With Mark Ruffalo on She-Hulk


Returning to the MCU after so many years, Tim Roth has had the chance to work with many new actors, and of course that includes his first time starring alongside Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. Having taken over the role of Banner/Hulk in 2012’s Avengers, Ruffalo has become a firm favorite amongst the MCU’s alum, and Roth loved the whole experience. He previously said:

“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.”

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has managed to overcome many of the early criticisms with its first episodes. Having featured appearances by Benedict Wong as Wong and Charlie Cox’s first appearance as Daredevil to come, there is plenty to enjoy in the series for those willing to ignore some of the less than accurate bad reviews and give it a shot. The first four episodes are available now on Disney+.
