Avengers star Mark Ruffalo explained that an appearance from Bruce Banner in the She-Hulk series is currently on the table, but isn’t set in stone.
After Mark Ruffalo confirmed that he’d had talks about appearing in She-Hulk as Bruce Banner, the Avengers star recently mentioned that a deal is still on the table. For those not familiar with the comics, Jennifer Walters gets a transfusion of Bruce’s blood after an accident which transforms her into She-Hulk. Although an actress for the role hasn’t been announced yet, fans are eager to see the Avengers star make a guest appearance in the Disney Plus series.
Ruffalo spoke to Variety about She-Hulk, explaining that he’d only be interested in appearing in the series if they “come up with something good”. What this likely means is the Avengers star wants his role in the show to develop his character in some way rather than just a simple cameo. Since Ruffalo hasn’t had his own solo Hulk film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it isn’t surprising that he might want more of a prominent role in She-Hulk.
“There’s nothing completely at a place where it’s a done deal. There’s some talk of having Banner/Hulk show up in ‘She–Hulk.’ If we come up with something good, that would be really interesting. Right now that’s about it. That’s all there is on the table.”

In the comics, She-Hulk is the alter-ego of Jennifer Walters, a private attorney and the cousin of Bruce Banner. After being shot, Jennifer Walters receives a blood transfusion from Bruce that transforms her into the gamma-powered She-Hulk. However, unlike most incarnations of Bruce Banner’s Hulk, Jennifer Walters retains her sharp wit and emotional control in her She-Hulk form, which later becomes permanent.
Marvel Studios’ upcoming slate of films includes Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder. In addition to the aforementioned feature films, Marvel Studios is developing several shows for Disney Plus, including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk.
