To break walls!
In the series, Jennifer Walter, and of course She-Hulk, will constantly break the fourth wall. No, we do not mean that they will do it thanks to their superhuman strength, what we mean is that they will do what is prohibited in movies and television: turn to look directly at the camera and address the public, something that is very funny when it is done well, as it surely will be, but this was not an afterthought, sincehe writer and cartoonist John Byrne gave him that characteristic in the comics Sensational She-Hulk, which were published from 1989 to 1994.
The nominees were…
The rumors that the role of Jennifer Walter would fall into the hands of Alison Brie were very strong, as they said that what they were looking for for She-Hulk was someone precisely of her type, the strange thing is that Alison was never contemplated for the role . Some actresses who were intended for the character were Gillian Jacobs, Berry Gilpin and Zoe Chao.
Eva Mendes could have been She-Hulk.
Another name that at some point was considered for the main role of She-Hulk was that of Eva Menedes, but this was 15 years ago and it was because, in an interview, Nicolas Cage said that he wanted to produce this series with Eva as its central character. Do you think it would have worked?
As you may know, Jennifer Walter is a lawyer, and the first case she is assigned is defending Emil Blonsky at his parole hearing. Blonsky, who is played by Tim Roth, had already appeared in The incredible Hulk (2008), when the superhero was played by Edward Norton, there Blonsky became Abomination, the staunch rival of the Hulk. On the other hand, of course there will be Mark Ruffalo as Marvel’s green superhero.
