Eva Mendes As She-Hulk?

— Posted by John Campea

Mendes-She-Hulk.jpgOk I’ll say this right up front. You could put Eva Mendes in a Mexican cooking show (I hate cooking shows and I’m also not that big of a fan of Mexican food) and I’d still tune in for 3 hours. That is one seriously attractive women… so good looking that it distracts you from the fact she’s not that good of an actress… although certainly not the worst in Hollywood either. But Mendes as She-Hulk? Now that’s interesting.

There are conflicting reports shooting around the web this morning. First of all there is a story from the great guys over at IESB that is claiming Nicolas Cage is trying to get the She-Hulk project off the ground and wants Mendes (his co-star in Ghost Rider) to play the lead role. Meanwhile, other sites are calling the rumours untrue. Which is true? Hard to say at this point… honestly I’m more interested in the CONCEPT right now more than anything else. For those of you who don’t know… here’s the idea behind she hulk from our friends over at Moviehole:

Jennifer Walters is the cousin of Bruce Banner (Hulk) and is a small and somewhat shy daughter of Los Angeles County Sheriff Morris Walters. Agents of Nicholas Trask, a crime boss who had crossed paths with her father, shot and seriously wounded her on a day that Bruce Banner happened to be in town for a visit. Since no donors of her blood type were available, Banner provided blood for a transfusion; his radioactive blood transformed Jennifer into the green-skinned She-Hulk.

I mean come on… should they even be THINKING about a She-Hulk movie right now when the first Hulk film (which I really liked) wasn’t that big of a hit and they’re still waiting to get Hulk 2 off the ground? Isn’t it a little premature to be chasing after a lesser known, less popular character until they at least see how the next Hulk film turns out and how the public responds to it?

But as I said, put Eva Mendes in green body paint and have her pants up up to the crotch for half the movie and I’ll be there… even if she’s just cooking buritos.

    Im a huge fan of the marvel and dc comic movies. I think She Hulk would be an incredibly successful movie if only there were a bit of realism. No short actresses, and no CGI. Cast Alexis Skye. She is six foot five inches tall and beautiful. She is the or one of the worlds tallest models. She has dabbled in acting. Her body, face and beauty match the character. She would make the movie an instant hit. mark my word. Somebody get her agent on the phone!

    It’s never too early to tell a good story. Just get a good She Hulk story (either the “reality aware” Byrne version or the most regular Avengers one) and the rest is easy to cope with.

    The concept of Jen from the 2nd and 3rd volume of the Sensational She Hulk would make a fantastic movie. Anyone who hasnt read at least a few of those issues should really go out and find them.

    Kim Cattrall would be good for the voice but you really need a CGI 7 foot green shulkie.

    Instead of a full one “HULK SMASH” kinda movie She Hulk should have a lot of humour, based around Jen in court action being interupted by some Lame “super” Villian… StiltMan comes to mind. But it can then escalate to some kind of end of the universe kind of situation.

    unfortunantly it could easily look like a rip off of sex in the city and ally mcbeal.
