We may never get a solo Hulk movie again thanks to the movie rights being partially owned by Paramount, but Disney+ is pushing forward with a She-Hulk series focusing on Bruce Banner’s lawyer cousin. What’s great is, the show seems to have cast one of its most essential roles.
According to The Illuminerdi, Mark Ruffalo has officially signed on to reprise the role of Hulk for Disney+’s upcoming She-Hulk series. We don’t know how much of a role he’s set to have, but I can understand if he only appears for a few episodes. After all, this is supposed to be Jennifer Walter’s show, not Bruce’s.
In the comics, Jennifer receives a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce that grants her the powers of the Hulk. But what’s different is, while Banner would rather hide his Hulk persona, She-Hulk stays green 24/7, and she keeps her cognitive functions as well.
After Endgame, it looks like Banner has taken the She-Hulk route when it comes to his transformation, but I would be open to seeing him have his own arc for the show. Maybe there’s something inconvenient about being large and green all the time, but with Banner now at the wheel, I think it’s great piece of character development for one of the MCU’s biggest characters.
For now, casting is still ongoing for She-Hulk, and a lot of fans are hopeful that Marvel finds their ‘Alison Brie-type’ for the part. Some people actually want Brie herself to take on the role, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
No release date has been set for Disney+’s She-Hulk.
