In February 1980, ‘Savage She-Hulk # 1’ was released. This comic was the first of the character that, in Spain, we know as the Hulks.
The story was simple: Jennifer Walters is a self-made lawyer, short introvert and shy, but with an innate talent to defend her clients.
One day he suffers a fatal accident and his only available relative for a blood transfusion is his cousin Bruce Banner (yes, Hulk). What happens then? Banner’s tainted blood triggers a reaction in Walters’ body giving him the same powers as his cousin … but retaining intelligence.
The character, created by Stan Lee and John Buscema , had a sudden fame almost as soon as he appeared in the world of comics, becoming fashionable and participating in the most important crossovers of Marvel, in addition to exploiting an artistic license that would later become the personal brand. Dead pool: Break the fourth wall.
This past August of 2019, Disney announced that it would develop a series of the character, and we already know that the scripts are ready, as Dana Schwartz (one of the writers) wrote on her Twitter.
“The writing of ‘Hulka’ is over, so if you’re a show runner looking for a scriptwriter who makes jokes, writes books, and knows tons of fun historical facts … give me a call!”
‘Hulka’ Release date
The release date for the ‘Hulka’ series has yet to be confirmed by Disney, but hopefully it won’t arrive until 2021 at the earliest . Production for the series is in its early stages, and filming will not begin until the summer of 2020.
The synopsis for ‘Hulka’ is still a mystery, but surely Disney will choose to introduce the character or, as it did with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, perhaps it will show us Jennifer Walters already operating as Hulka.
One of the most widespread rumors is that we will see the character of Betty Ross , girlfriend of Bruce Banner, whom we saw in ‘The Incredible Hulk’, the version starring Edward Norton.
The cast of ‘Hulka’ has not yet been confirmed, but there are already several rumors of possible protagonists:
– Alison Brie
– Stephanie Beatriz
– Constance Wu
– Blake Lively
But, for now, those who seem to be taking the lead would be Eliza Dushku , who has been in charge of doubling the character in its animated version, and Gina Carano , especially after her participation in ‘The Mandalorian’.
