Jameela Jamil addresses fans throwing shade at her Marvel character: ‘I’m on their side’

Jameela Jamil as Titania in Marvel's She-Hulk

Jameela Jamil has once again addressed fans who thought she was being let down by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The actor will play villain Titania in the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk.

When first-look pictures of Jameela Jamil’s character were released showing her looking dishevelled, fans were concerned that she’d been left to play in the bad wig box.

In response, Jamil tweeted: Guys… I accept every ounce of shade here, but in defence of my excellent hair stylist, this is just my hair after a 14-hour stunt day in Atlanta heat. Just after being upside down. She did a *great* job on the show I promise. I love her. Boobs look ok tho?”

Jameela Jamil was asked about the wig saga after a Marvel San Diego Comic-Con panel on 23 July.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: I love the Marvel fan base. I respect them, and I was merely making sure that they knew that I was with them.

“I was reassuring them. I’m on their side. And so I never mind any criticism or feedback. As long as it isn’t done in a cruel or toxic way, I’m with the Marvel fan base when they push for more – I’m into it.”

The Good Place actor is a vocal advocate for women’s rights on her social media. Speaking at Comic-Con about how that interacts with her new She-Hulk role, Jamil said: “Some people online think I am a villain.

“Being a woman is a bit like being Batman. Die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain.

“I feel all women feel that way, we are only given so long before we are just demonised so it’s nice to just come straight out the gate as a bad person.

“This character embodies the antithesis of everything I stand for and all these things that I fight against I get to play and embody in her.”

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, starring Jameela Jamil and Tatiana Maslanyairs on Disney+ from 17 August.
