Aubrey Plaza Wants to Play She-Hulk

The “Parks and Rec’s” actor Aubrey Plaza expressed in an interview with SciFiNow her interest to play a certain Marvel character, the green skinned, green haired, muscle bounded chic, She-Hulk. Read on for further details.

“She-Hulk? Oh my god, I would love to be She-Hulk – Because I had super-strength? Yes, I want to be She-Hulk. Write that movie and I’ll do it. I would love to be any kind of superhero or person with super-strength,” said the actress who has also repeatedly expressed her interest in playing DC’s Catwoman.


In the comics, Jennifer Walters gained her powers after being shot by mobsters. Her cousin Bruce Banner, a.k.a. The Incredible Hulk, saved her life by giving her a last-minute blood transfusion of his own irradiated blood. From that point on, Jennifer Walters was able to transform into the Sensational She-Hulk; a recurring member of the Avengers.

As She-Hulk, Jenn obtains powers similar to those of her powerful cousin, the Hulk. She has great superhuman strength, endurance, and healing abilities. But unlike the Hulk, she usually retains her intelligence and an ability to transform between Jennifer Walters and She-Hulk. Rather than being triggered by anger, she can change at will. When changing into She-Hulk, her body and hair take on a distinctly greenish hue, gaining and losing mass in the form of body size as well as additional muscle mass. Aside from her superhuman powers and fighting prowess, Jennifer is a very intelligent woman having received a degree in criminal law prior to becoming the She-Hulk and is a highly accomplished lawyer.

Moreover, Plaza, a comedienne known for her deadpan-style comedy in “Parks and Recreation,” has appeared in key supporting roles for several films including “Funny People,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and “Mystery Team” among others. Her first lead role was in the 2012 comedy “Safety Not Guaranteed.” Her recent appearance is in the 2014 Sundance Film “Life After Beth,along with Dane DeHaan and Anna Kendrick which premiered at 2014 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 19, 2014 and given a limited release on Aug. 15, 2014.

She is set to voice Grumpy Cat in the Lifetime TV Special “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” where its premise follows the adventures of a frequently overlooked cat and her friendship with the 12-year-old girl, Chrystal. Grumpy Cat live action TV special airs on Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.
