A man of exceedingly good taste, especially when it comes to movie roles, Mark Ruffalo, who stars as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in Marvel's Avengers franchise has offered his casting choices for who could play Banner's cousin Jennifer Walters, otherwise known as the green-skinned heroine She-Hulk, if she was ever to make her entrance into the MCU.
In a Reddit AMA, redditor bertiebarnes posed the query to the actor, asking "if you had to pick someone to play my love Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, who'd be your top choice? :)" Ruffalo then set tongues wagging with his choice of a very interesting pair of actresses:
Oh wow, that's pretty crazy. Well I think Zoe Saldana would be a great She Hulk. It'd be nice to see someone like her join the Avengers. Or someone quiet and demure like Emma Stone would be nice. But it would be up to the powers that be.
Zoe Saldana and Emma Stone? They wouldn't have been my first choices, what with Saldana already playing a green-skinned badass in Guardians of the Galaxy, but both could work. Let's have a look why...
The Search For She-Hulk
Not afraid of being thrust into roles of varying hues (she was blue in Avatar), Saldana has proved herself to be a formidable on-screen presence with great performances in multiple blockbuster movies like Star Trek Into Darkness and Colombiana, in which she was arguably the best thing.
Saldana can play strong, she certainly can do smart and looks damn good in green. So, why not? I'm with you on this one, Ruffalo. Though it will almost certainly never happen.
Stone already has amassed invaluable experience within the superhero set-up, with roles as Gwen Stacy in Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Used to seeing her as the girl next door type, having Stone onboard as She-Hulk would be a dramatic turn for her career, and propel her to the leading lady high life her talent deserves.
Though it would be strange to see a green, seven-foot Stone stomping up cities, crazier things have happened in the world of cinema! Another great choice by The Ruff.
I dunno about you guys, but if She-Hulk was ever to appear in the MCU or MTU, I'd like to see Katee Sackhoff underneath the green body paint. If there's anyone who has the chops to pull off lawyer and sentient brawn, she's the ticket.
What do you think?
Who would be your perfect She-Hulk?
