There has been a fan demand to see Brooklyn 99 actress Stephanie Beatriz play Jennifer Walters aka She-Hulk, the comic book cousin of Bruce Banner. The character is officially getting her own solo series on Disney+ which will usher her directly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Stephanie Beatriz revealed to EntertainmentWeekly on Monday at NBC’s Comedy Starts Here event that she’s seen the fan-castings and “would die” to play She-Hulk.
BEATRIZ: “I would die to play that role. That is so flattering. That is one of the best characters in that universe.”
“I definitely have upped my workouts since reading some of those things.”
“But also, [I think it would] be really exciting for fans to see some of these characters that we kind of decided are one thing, to sort of be imagined in a different way.”
Development on the series seems to be in early stages as they only announced at D23 Expo that they’ll be making it and didn’t reveal details or showrunner/writers. This would suggest that casting might be months away.
Other Disney+ shows coming from Marvel Studios include The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, What-If, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel.
