It is rumored to start filming in Atlanta this July and Mark Ruffalo revealed at Chicago’s C2E2, he’s been in preliminary talks with Marvel to appear in the She-Hulk series as Bruce Banner/Hulk.
As explained in the comics, Jennifer Walters is Bruce Banner’s cousin and works professionally as a lawyer. First appearing in 1980, in Savage She-Hulk #1, Walters is injured, and in order to help her, Banner gives her a blood transfusion. This results in her gaining a milder version of his Hulk condition. Over the years, she’s been a member of the Avengers, A-Force, and even subbed in for the Fantastic Four in the comics. At the same time, she’s slowly grown to be one of the strongest and most powerful Marvel characters.
