Round 2 is here!

After much speculation on the casting of villains, I've decided to turn our fan casting options back to the heroes we long to see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starting with none other then Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk.

You may be asking yourself, "Why She-Hulk when we already have the Hulk (who hasn't had his own movie in many years)?" You have a valid point.

First off, I don't see this being a movie. If She-Hulk were to come to fruition, I imagine it would be a Netflix or ABC series after The Defenders (a team she had a presence on for a time in the comics). Similar to Daredevil's alter ego, Matt Murdock, Jennifer Walters is a lawyer. Unlike any of the current characters in the MCU, she breaks the fourth wall (ala Deadpool, she knows she is a fictional character and speaks to the audience). So, I see this being, rather than a dark story, more of a comedic series. With (Fox's) Deadpool movie coming out next year, it would be a chance for Marvel to get their own fourth-wall-breaking character into the superhero ring.

Let me hit you with some history:

Jennifer Walters, the meek and mousy lawyer cousin of Bruce Banner, was the daughter of Sheriff Morris Walters. Agents of Nicholas Trask, a crime boss who had crossed paths with her father, shot and seriously wounded her on a day when her cousin was in town. Bruce gave her a blood transfusion, as no other donors of her blood type were available; the radioactive blood mutated Jennifer as it had her cousin, transforming her into the She-Hulk. Although Jennifer was at first savage while in her form as She-Hulk, she eventually gained the same intelligence she had as the normal Jennifer Walters. She quickly came to appreciate the confidence and assertiveness that had come with being She-Hulk. For a long time, she felt more comfortable in her form as She-Hulk than in her "normal" form as Jennifer. But she has gradually grown comfortable in both forms, and realized that she has much to offer the world in both her forms.

There's obviously much more to this character, but that's a good start. So now, the big questions is, which actress could you see cast as She-Hulk?

Vote away and if you have any other actress suggestions let me know in the comments.
