When it was announced that a “She-Hulk” series would be coming to Disney+, fans wasted no time in taking to the internet to voice who they think would kill in the role. Lots of names popped up, but none came out as easily as Stephanie Beatriz. Many people thought she would be perfect as Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, so much so that in a 2019 interview with Entertainment Tonight, she mentioned, “I would die to play this role. It’s so flattering. He’s one of the best characters in this universe.”
Apparently, she even went so far as to start training to improve her chances of landing the role, saying, “I’ve definitely upped my workouts since reading some of this stuff. But also , [I think it would] be really exciting for fans to see some of these characters that we kind of decided were one thing, to kind of imagine in a different way.” Unfortunately for Beatriz, she didn’t end up getting the lead role in “She-Hulk.” Instead, the role went to “Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany, who is certainly a good fit for her.
Luckily, the Marvel Universe is a big place. Stephanie Beatriz could play plenty of other characters, so it might only be a matter of time before the actress appears in a Marvel project.
