She Hulk on Disney+

She Hulk show predictions:

Awesome Brick Joke: The first episode has Jennifer in the kitchen on a Sunday talking to her gay guy best pal seamstress (wink wink, foreshadow he will make her giant clothing) about how she has her first ever big solo case tomorrow and she is so nervous. As they make sandwiches, poor weak Jennifer can't open the pickle jar....cur laugh track. THEN at the end of the show (maybe after the credits) as She Hulk she opens the refrigerator and pulls out the pickle jar and easily pops of the top and smiles (maybe breaks the jar)...then cue Disney Plus logo, in association with Marvel, Upside Down House and You Can't Do That On Television Productions.

Girl Power Joke: Lawyer Jennifer walks to work in the morning.....past a construction site. Where the guys catcall her. Then at the end of the episode she walks past again, but walks over to the guys as She Hulk and bends a iron beam into a shape and says "what cat got your tongue?"

Funny Rated G "nude" scene: normal human Jennifer hulks out, and rips out of her normal sized lawyer outfit. And is naked. OF COURSE we see nothing other then her feet, shoulders and head. But she has to run around the city, trying to get home and hiding as a seven foot tall green skinned giant woman....as she PERFECTLY hides behind object that cover nearly every inch of her skin. Still, funny scene...waka waka waka!

Green Law: Jennifer hulks out....but must go to court as She Hulk....maybe covered in make up. Waka Waka Waka.....

Brick Joke #2: maybe episode 2 or 3 during the teaser or start after she has become She Hulk, but has transformed back to plain Jennifer. Walking through the park with her friend.....she sees a poor woman get robbed/mugged by a dude in all black clothing. But does nothing: it's not her problem. She is just ready to report what she saw to the cops and give a good description like a good lawyer would do. The friend disagrees: she should have stopped the mugger guy.

Then:

With Great Power: Near end of Episode 2: Jennifer freaks out being a giant green monster and runs out into the rain. Crying she is sure he life is over: she just wants a normal life as a lawyer, not as a green monster. She runs out into the city park (Central Park if they are in NYC, wink wink) and collapses on the ground. Then right before her is a park kiosk poster of Spider Man and Stan Lee standing together with the words "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility" , and she realizes what she must do......

And Brick Joke #2 continued: (maybe after the credits) Old White Guy Officer McGillus and Young Rook Officer Jones are just outside of the prescient, looking up a mugger guy all tied up and hanging way up from a street light. Mcgillus holds a piece of paper and says "I'm telling you this guy matches the composite description on the dark park mugger, just look!" Jones nods "Yup it's him, how do you think he got up there all tied up?" McGillus "Er, beats me" Jones: "And how we gonna get him down?" Mcgillus: "Beats me?" Cue Disney Plus logo, in association with Marvel, Upside Down House and You Can't Do That On Television Productions.

Let's hope the writing on the show is better than this. We know it can be, from the Marvel tv shows. Whatever your opinion of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Punisher, or Jessica Jones, they weren't sit-com level stereotypes. And I think the various show-runners know streaming customers demand more than that.

IIRC She-Hulk doesn't "Hulk out" like David (Bruce) Banner does. She ends up with a permanent transformation due to a necessary blood transfusion from her Hulk cousin. Hopefully they stick to that in the series. Tatiana Maslany is a hell of an actress.

Yea, but the question is, will the show be all CGI She Hulk? Like will we only see the real human actress for like a couple minutes in episode one and then she gets "zapped by a gamma ray" or whatever and is CGI She Hulk for all the six episodes?

I'm guessing they might go for more of the she de hulks, so they can have normal sitcom screens.

It depends on the look they're going for. She-Hulk is generally drawn as tall and muscular, but not outside of normal human proportions, unlike the Hulk.

She doesn't hulk out quite the same, but it wasn't a permanent transformation until later in her career. I believe it was in the She-Hulk graphic novel that her transformation became permanent (edit: yeesh! that was back in 1985?!? OK, that's it!

She-Hulk is canonically 6'7" tall. Tatiana Maslany is 5'4".
That's a bit of a difference. They might cover it with CGI, or they might go with some trickery with camera angles and forced perspective a la Lord of the Rings. Or have a short She-Hulk.
 

Wolverine is 5'3" and Hugh Jackman is 6'2". As long as the actor does a good job bringing the character to life, height shouldn't be an issue. And certainly, they could do all sorts of CGI and camera trickery. With the pandemic, I suspect shows and movies will likely be relying on stuff like compositing people into shots more than ever.

If you've never seen "Orphan Black", you should at least watch a few episodes. Maslani plays something like 8 different characters through the course of the series, each with distinct mannerisms and personalities. From a technical aspect probably the most impressive episodes are some of the season finales in which they have scenes with up to 4 different characters, played by Maslani, in the same room and at the "same time." They were obviously shot at separate times and used a stand-in, of her size, who was swapped out in editing so that all the characters interact with each other.

Damn, but she's an impressive actress.

I caught a few episodes while my wife was watching them, and yeah, her ability to transform herself is darn impressive.

I don’t think that matters. Hollywood frequently changes a character’s appearance. Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher. Or the opposite, Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine. Sylvester Stallone as Judge Dredd. Michael Keaton was Batman. They made James Bond an Australian once! As long as they can sell the new look, it’s fine.

Yeah she got each role "over" as well. Each character was distinct and you bought into it.

She's really good.

To a certain extent - sure. But there are a lot of characters for whom appearance doesn't matter a whole lot. Batman can be played by a wide range of actors because his main salient features are the Batman suit and plausible playboyability as Bruce Wayne. Wolverine's height gets mentioned in the comics, but it's rarely a defining characteristic compared to his healing factor, senses, adamantium bits, and attitude. I mean, it's not like they're trying to constantly pick which X-man has to sit in the back of a Honda Civic.

But for Hulk and She-Hulk, being big and green are significantly more important. Trademark, even. What I expect is that Tatiana Maslany, as she is normally, will be Jen Walters and some CGI/forced perspective will give her reasonably appropriate She-Hulkiness just like it did for Mark Ruffalo.

To you, maybe. That True Scotsman is an elusive blighter! Height really doesn’t matter to me as long as the actor gives me a version I can believe. I can believe in a green 5’-something hulk woman, a lady Doctor Who, a black Spider-man, a 5'7 Jack Reacher, a short Judge Dredd, the whole works. All they have to do is be good and sell it to me. If they’re good, any change is fine.

Damn, I find the Hulk characters thoroughly uninteresting (sans Ed Norton's Bruce) but with Maslany attached I'll likely find a way to check it out.

The CGI to make a person bigger does exist......how many years ago was that Gods of Egypt movie. The gods in that movie were giants compared to humans.

Somehow, I don’t think expecting anything called a “hulk” to be on the big side qualifies as a No True Scotsman fallacy. I think it wouldn’t be quite right if a Spider-man had chihuahua powers. Why would I expect a hulk, She- or otherwise to be shopping the petite section?
