    ^Kind of non-news really given we've known this for the last few years. Unless Disney/Marvel Studios announce they're actually going to do something with them, there's not much to talk about. Indeed unless I've missed something the Daredevil/Spider-Man 3 & Jessica Jones/She-Hulk rumours are still just that.

    I have to admit, I am curious how She-Hulk is going to handle the title character herself. Tatiana Maslany is a great actress, but she's not that Hulkish.
    I did come up with one actress I'm familiar with who has more of the She-Hulk look. Raga Ragnars, from Vikings, who's 6'2" and, compared to Tatiana Maslany, who's only 5'4".

    I am gonna guess that her She-Hulk will be similarly cgi‘ed as the Hulk.
    Her facial features will look like Tatiana, otherwise mo-cap acting.

    I assume it would be in the vein of the Dan Slott and Charles Soule comics runs that focused mainly on Jennifer Walters working as a lawyer in her human form, for which Maslany is a pretty good physical match. Her Hulk-outs would no doubt be performance capture, as the previous poster said.

    Mark Ruffalo ain't exactly Hulkish, either, and they somehow made it work.

    Yeah, none of the Banner actors have been very Hulkish.

    That's pretty much the point, isn't it?

    Yup, which is why Maslany not being Hulkish is a non-starter.

    I think people forget that this isn't the '70s anymore and these Disney+ shows have movie-level budgets.

    I think you mean the opposite, that it's a non-issue. "Non-starter" means a plan that fails before it begins, like a horse that fails to start a race.

    A non-issue is something that is a non-starter as an issue, so what @Nerys Myk posted was perfectly cromulent. Funnily enough, they're not exactly opposites.

    I thought Jennifer Walters had been in her Hulk form 24/7 since she was turned into She-Hulk.

    No, but there was a time where she stayed in her Hulk form either by choice or happenstance.

    OK. When I wrote my other post I was thinking they would have to turn Maslany into a CGI Hulk for every single scene she was going to be in, and that seemed like a lot of unnecessary work.

    That was true until the Dan Slott run in 2004. Since then, she's been able to go back and forth. IIRC, Slott established that she'd been "stuck" as She-Hulk due to a psychological block, not wanting to go back to being Jen, more than a physical inability.

    Indeed, in the Mariko Tamaki run in 2016, after Jen went through an ordeal that changed her into a more savage gray Hulk, she spent pretty much the first several issues as Jen before finally Hulking out.

    Oh, OK, I have no problem with Maslany then.

    I like the casting, but the only place I've seen this is we've got this covered.

    ETA: which doesn't necessarily mean I discount the rumor entirely. It just means that I'm not going to get my hopes up yet.

    Will the Universe explode when Sue Storm meets Mystique eventually?
