With the phenomenal success of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman film, Hollywood is looking at female directors in a new light and rightfully so.
Director Rachel Talalay gave an interview with Vice where she discussed what comic book property she would like to bring to the big screen. Talalay, who has experience directing multiple genre films including Tank Girl and Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare as well as episodes of The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Doctor Who and Sherlock, expressed her desire to bring Marvel hero She-Hulk to the big screen.
Talalay even has a take on the character herself, which is actually interesting. In the interview, she states; “The difference between She-Hulk and Hulk is that she loved being She-Hulk. She was the Tank Girl of earlier days in terms of being able to say what she wanted, and when she became She-Hulk, it was like an opening of the door to freedom, to be the person that you wish you could be. That you’re stopped from being as a woman. And that’s the version of She-Hulk that I would love to embrace.”
She-Hulk was created in 1980 by Stan Lee and John Buscema. Her real name is Jennifer Walters and she is a highly successful attorney, who specializes in defending superheroes in court. She receives an emergency transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner and it gives her the same powers of the Hulk, but she retains her personality and intellect.
Personally, I would love to see this happen. I would love to see a She-Hulk film on the big screen and Rachel Talalay’s take on the character is certainly interesting and shows that she has a grasp of the character.
