View Full Version : The use of She-Hulk in a Hulk sequel
03-23-2003, 07:53 PM
I think the She-Hulk would be an incredible (pun not intended) role to add in the inevitable Hulk 2 movie that'll come out in 2005. A slight twist : Jennifer would not be related to Bruce Banner. At all. In fact, she should be romantic competition for Betty Ross (assuming the sequel doesn't start with Betty already married). The Hulk is all about male rage, why not showcase female rage? I guess that would mean that Jennifer would have to be the Savage She-Hulk as opposed to the Sensational She-Hulk. Plus, this works if Jennifer Connelly jumps ship to the WONDER WOMAN project (keeping my fingers crossed). But keep the rest of her origin mostly the same. Bruce and Jennifer on a date. Car accident. Bruce gives Jennifer an emergency gamma blood transfusion which bestows upon her his curse. And then spend the rest of the movie dealing with that act's repercussions. The Hulk/She-Hulk vibe in HULK 2 could be kinda like the Batman/Catwoman vibe in BATMAN RETURNS (withOUT the f&*!@ing killer penguins).
Yikes, I don't like the sound of this incestual relationship between Hulk and She-Hulk you've proposed at all. That would be to ignore the whole of She-Hulk's history and do basically what many complain that ignorant film makers do already to beloved comic book characters. Even if it was changed to as you suggest, fans would still know what the relationship is really like in the comics and might find it a bit tough to stomach with the idea of first cousins getting it on with each other, especially since Jennifer Walters is sometimes more of a sister to Bruce.
I say that She-Hulk should have her own movie completely, with Eric Bana perhaps making a guest appearance as Daredevil now might in an Elektra movie. She-Hulk is such a completely different character to Hulk that a different approach has to be taken, perhaps more of a comedy. While Hulk is about rage and emotion, She-Hulk is about glamour, lightheartedness, fun and adventure.
The fact that her own book as reimagined by John Byrne was pure comedy with the character even being aware of her comic book limitations, combined with the fact that Ms Walters is a lawyer gives me the idea that perhaps a film about the Sensational She-Hulk should be a cross between Ally McBeal and an action/adventure movie/ series - eg Alias, Buffy or Xena or whatever female action heroine there is around. That way it would play up the quirkiness of her predicament (being nearly 7 ft, green and a sex symbol), the strange cases in her legal profession and various neuroses she might have about finding a Mr Right who would be compatible and wouldn't be intimidated by a green goddess like her, while also having some kick ass action.
Meoww! Send in the clowns!

I don't like the idea of she-hulk that much at all. If they did it right maybe, but don't make her a love-interest. A she-hulk movie would be a flop.

No, Batgirl wasn't what made the Batman franchise suck. It was the rubber nipples, horrible puns, and the hockey fight scene.

I say that She-Hulk is one of the worst ideas in comic book history...it ranks up there with long-haired Superman, Doom crying in the 9-11 Spidey issue(lets see the uproar after that comment..)and the cancellation of the most recent Supergirl run...
My common sense is tingling....

Don't forget the neon lights and reducing one of Batman's deadliest villains into a musclebound retard.
