There is no She-Hulk movie planned yet, but if it ever happens, current Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo has some ideas about who could play the role. One of them could be a result of something already seen in trailers.
She-Hulk is one of those relatively minor characters branching off an already popular idea. A bookish woman, Jennifer Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner, and a successful lawyer. When a mob deal went wrong, she was caught in the cross-fire and seriously wounded, requiring a blood transfusion. The person who offered that blood was her infamous cousin, and it changed her life forever. Able to control her super human abilities, she occasionally fights alongside the Avengers when she’s not fighting for justice in the courtroom.
If she ends up in a future Avengers movie, Mark Ruffalo has a couple of ideas for who might be the She-Hulk movie actress. One of his suggestions is almost visually identical to someone we’ve seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy trailers.
Zoe Saldana is one of Ruffalo’s choices, having already played a green skinned character in the Marvel cinematic universe. The other has been in a superhero movie before, though it isn’t a Marvel/Disney property.
Emma Stone was his other pick, someone whose relatively commanding yet quiet personality could translate well into the role of Jennifer Walters.
In Ruffalo’s own words:
“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.”
The possibility of Saldana playing two physically similar roles in the Marvel cinematic universe probably wouldn’t work so well. Emma Stone would be more likely, especially after her character’s fate in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 mostly freed her up from that franchise.
Plans to create another solo Hulk movie are under consideration, but haven’t been put to paper yet, as previously reported by The Inquisitr. The character has already been in three movies in the series so far, though one was as his human alter ego Bruce Banner in a post credits scene, so the addition of a She-Hulk movie actress won’t be too much extra work story-wise.

Mark Ruffalo may be getting ahead of himself with his ideas, but it’s clear that he’s in it as long as they want him. Of course with him getting into his 50s, he doesn’t “know if anyone wants to see a gray-haired Hulk”
There is such a thing as hair dye and makeup, and old age hasn’t stopped Sylvester Stallone or Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Who do you think would work as a potential She-Hulk movie actress?
