Mark Ruffalo Offers a MCU Welcome To She-Hulk
As revealed at D23, She-Hulk is finally on her way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Naturally, this news caught the attention of Mark Ruffalo, who has portrayed Bruce Banner/Hulk since The Avengers. Ruffalo recently took to Twitter to congratulate Marvel Studios on the announcement of the series. He also added a personal touch with a green-colored heart.

In the comics, She-Hulk is Jenner Walters, Bruce Banner’s cousin. After an assassination attempt on Jennifer’s life, Bruce saved her with an emergency blood transfusion. That was enough to transform her into a Hulk, but she eventually retained her personality and intelligence in both forms.
Casting for the new series has yet to begin, but it would make sense if Ruffalo appeared as Banner/Hulk to set up her origin story.
Marvel Studios doesn’t currently have a lead in mind for the series at this point. Some fans have started campaigning for their favorite choices, like Brooklyn Nine Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz. However, Angie Harmon has been campaigning for the role for years. She even wore a She-Hulk costume for Halloween back in 2017.
Along with She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel also received series confirmations on Disney+, which will launch in November. They don’t have debut dates just yet, but more information should be available as they begin pre-production.
