There is a wild RUMOR flying around that Megan Fox is the favorite to play She-Hulk in a spinoff film of The Incredible Hulk.
If this totally unsubstantiated rumor somehow turns out to be true, it would mean that Megan Fox is about to star in a trifecta of comic book films: she’s already been confirmed to play the titular role in an adaptation of Michael Turner’s Fathom, and she’ll also have a role in the upcoming adaptation of Jonah Hex.
That comic book-clout doesn’t even count the box office clout she’s going to have when Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen explodes into theaters and IMAX this Summer. Anyway you look at, it’s a good time to be Megan Fox.
This is what an “inside source” close to the wild rumor about She-Hulk had to say about Megan Fox taking on the role:
“‘She-Hulk’ comics are popular so it’s only natural that the character makes the transition to the big screen. The idea is to make She-Hulk sexier but even more savage than the Hulk, which is why Megan is the big favourite for the lead. She’ll be green of course and will have to hang on to a few more pieces of clothes than the male version when she transforms!”
Sounds totally reliable (sarcasm alert!).
She-Hulk is, of course, the female version of The Incredible Hulk. In the original comics, She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner, who is shot and critically wounded by mobsters. Having the same DNA and blood-type as Jennifer, Bruce Banner transfuses her with his own gamma-irradiated blood to save her life, inadvertently transforming her into the She-Hulk.
Can Megan Fox play the lean, green, machine, She-Hulk?

Now, I agree with this “inside source” that Megan Fox is sexier than The Hulk, but more savage? The only “savage” side of Megan Fox I know of is the one from Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, and even that was more bitchy than savage. There’s also the fact that Megan Fox is well under the height requirement for “Amazonian,” and I’m not sure hers is the kind of beauty that translates to green. You need an actress that can do green in order to pull off She-Hulk.
Uma Thurman is more the type of actress that can “do green.” And Kill Bill definitely showed us her savage side. She even played an angry super heroine in My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Bulk her up a little, paint her green… Just saying…
Seriously though, I hope this rumor is debunked sooner before later, because I don’t think Megan Fox is the girl to play She-Hulk. It’s going to be enough seeing her get wet n’ wild in Fathom; let that bit of fun end there.
What do you think, is there any chance that Megan Fox is going to end up playing She-Hulk? Or should we all be scoffing at this RUMOR?
