Brooklyn 99s Rosa Diaz Says Shed Die To Play She-Hulk
Detective Rosa Diaz smash! Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz would die to play She-Hulk.
The nuke of Disney+ is incoming, bringing with it a roster of new, exciting programming – last month at D23 Expo, the MCU-set She-Hulk series was announced for the streaming platform.
But who could play such an iconic comicbook character? If the internet has anything to do with it, Stephanie Beatriz will step up.
After news broke about the show, fan-casting swiftly circulated – and Beatriz name frequently popped up. Fortunately, it appears shes game to go green.
In interview with ET at NBCs Comedy Starts Here event earlier this week, Beatriz said:
I would die to play that role. That is so flattering. That is one of the best characters in that universe.
As the 99th precincts toughest cop, Beatriz is no stranger to being the strongest person in the room.
However, while shes yet to receive a call about taking on the role, she has been upping her workout regime – just in case.
I definitely have upped my workouts since reading some of those things, but also, [I think it would] be really exciting for fans to see some of these characters that we kind of decided are one thing, to sort of be imagined in a different way.
Created by Stan Lee and John Buscema, She-Hulk debuted in 1980. The character, Jennifer Walters, is bestowed with the ability to transform into a massive, green machine after a blood transfusion from her cousin – Bruce Banner.
Though, unlike Banners inner conflict with his angry alter-ego, Walters sees the powers as a gift – she retains most of her personality, even continuing to practice law, while also teaming up with the Avengers and Fantastic Four.
She-Hulk is just the tip of the Marvel iceberg for Disney+. Also announced for the platform is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If?, Hawkeye, Ms Marvel and Moon Knight.
