We don’t know a lot about the upcoming She-Hulk series but some new character information trickling out might be a clue to the show possibly taking cues directly from the comic books.
TheIlluminerdi (connected to ThatHashtagShow) has seemingly got a hold of a casting grid for the upcoming Marvel series She-Hulk, which might give some brief insight into the direction of the show that we already know would feature Jennifer Walters, a superhero and defense attorney.
Marvel seems to be open to all races when it comes to casting Walters aka She-Hulk.
They have begun the casting search for Jennifer Walters, who goes on to be better known as She-Hulk. Specifically, Marvel is looking for an actress with comedic chops in the 26 to 34-year old age range.
They’re also leaving the casting open to all races, which should cast a wide net for their search.
It is teased that she will become an Avenger just like in the comics, not terribly surprising given that the shows are expected to bleed into the feature films as promised by Kevin Feige.
Jennifer might also keep her comic book lineage as Bruce Banner’s (played by Mark Ruffalo) cousin and is expected to keep her origin intact getting her powers from a blood transfusion from Bruce.
The description even cites Jennifer’s Marvel Comics’ origin, noting that she is indeed a lawyer who will gain her abilities after receiving a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner, who is specifically mentioned, after being shot.
Additionally, the last sentence of the description explicitly states that she is a future member of the Avengers.
Keep in mind, this could be stuff strictly pulled from the comic books for the direct purposes of the casting phase and giving actors an idea of where the character is coming from while keeping leaks about the show minimal.
There is zero confirmation from Marvel that Mark Ruffalo will be back as Bruce Banner/Professor Hulk despite the common sense thinking that he’d at the very least cameo at some point, possibly in an origin sequence as teased here.
Mark has been recently linked for a leading role in HBO’s upcoming Parasite series.
Emmy-winning Rick & Morty writer Jessica Gao is the head writer on the series, but we haven’t heard a peep about who will direct it.
There are conflicting reports on when the series is expected to begin July/August but it will indeed shoot in Atlanta, Georgia like the other recent shows.
Loki is currently shooting in Atlanta with Hawkeye and Ms Marvel expected to shoot there too.
Neither Marvel Studios or Disney has announced when She-Hulk will begin airing on the Disney+ streaming service but sometime in 2021 is looking like a good bet to make given its summer production start.
