I don't think she'd work as a stand-alone character. She's not even that well known in the MCU. I think Ms.Marvel could do it. The problem is, not even the comic book universe has many strong female characters. It's a real issue and needs to be fixed.
Ms/Captain Marvel is a perfect example of how she should be done. They've un-sexualised her, given her her own story-arc and made her work as a stand-alone character. This is great, but it needs to be done for more characters.

Firestar is supposed to be a mutant tied to X-Men lore. Still, her character is still open to many new developments without being tied to them or to the New Warriors.

Since She-Hulk is the third most voted character if they did a She-Hulk movie how do you think they'd do it?

But I bet the first thing anyone thinks of when you say "Firestar" is Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends.

You're off to a good start. The cast I'd have:
  • Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel II - Our dark horse star, knows how to be a by the book her, her new relationship forces her to break that mold
  • Mar-Vell/Captain Marvel I - Love Interest, classic alien hero, but deconstructed, since he's dying.
  • Michael "Ace" Rossi - Danvers' old flying buddy, Mar-Vell's rival love interest, rogueish in a bad way
  • Nick Fury or Hawkeye or Black Widow or Maria Hill or Falcon or Coulson- SHIELD personnel, MCU expository through line. May also be rival/obstructive at some point.
  • Ronan The Accuser - Either the main villain or the cliffhanger villain.
  • Yon-Rogg - Mar-Vell's professional rival who most viciously reacts to Mar-Vell's betrayal.
  • Sentry 459 - Technically a character, albeit, not one with an actor per se

She doesn't have a 'homegirl' character but Widow or Maria Hill could technically play that kind of role for her, and perhaps they should. You could bring in Abigail Brand for that purpose too if you like, that might be interesting.

They need a female equivalent of RDJ to pull off her humour and personality. Someone who can do comedy and quick fire speech. I'd say get someone from a comedy like they did with Chris Pratt.

As for how to bring She Hulk to life, don't use motion capture or she'll be a CGI character. It's more important she seem like a real person compared to Hulk who is more of a monster. Use Movie Reshape technology instead.

Too bad Emma Stone is already playing Gwen Stacy, she'd be perfect.

I'd prefer someone older for Jennifer Walters. Younger actresses don't convey a very mature sense of humor.

I don't really see why a Captain Marvel movie has to have a love interest .

To draw in the romantics. People associate adventure films with some romance.

Mid-thirties. If they have her as an assistant D.A. then that's a believable age. If she is to be Bruce Banner's cousin, then she should be closer to his age because they were childhood friends.

Fascinating. Do you have some sort of idea about which cast you would choose? I think I can think of a few good Ms Marvels, it's just Mar-vell I get stuck on (and the director)

I agree. I tend to think of female Avengers as being a bit older and more experienced than the whelp on the street sort of thing. They're not the kind of woman who wander around all angsty. They know what they want, they're good at what they do and they just go for it.

She Hulk is such a great role for someone I think. Half Wonder Woman, Half Bridget Jones and a dash of Ally McBeal. As soon as more of the female demographic know about her she'll be mainstream and a superstar so fast Marvel's heads will spin!

I don't want someone too old for Jennifer Walters. Definitely not someone like Angie Harmon. If they were going to go for someone in their mid thirties, I'd prefer a young-looking one. In the first and maybe second season of Ally McBeal, Calista Flockhart (before she got too thin) did have the look of comic Jennifer and the kind of humour required. She was also fast talking too and had her share of verbal sparring with Robert Downey Jr in season 4 I think it was when he was part of the main cast.

Today though, I don't know exactly who. I'm half thinking someone like Alison Brie, but sometimes her voice is a little annoying and some of her mannerisms too. However, she is 30 and can do both serious and comedy. I think she fits into a Chris Pratt mould. Not saying it has to be her at all, because ideally I'd prefer someone else. But someone like her rather than a standard tough chick (ie definitely not someone like Gina Carano).

And here is the Movie Reshape technology they should use:

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Of course the actress still needs to be fit and in shape, but Movie Reshape can make her taller, more muscular etc and enhance all of her features while still looking natural, and most importantly of all, still using the actress without the need for motion capture.

Definitely, definitely I could get on board with a She-Hulk movie even though I've never taken much to the character. I think whichever character Marvel makes a movie for will be great. I may be in the minority but as much as I love Scarlett Johansson, I'd rather see someone new get a solo movie.

She-Hulk was breaking the 4th wall before D'Pool. I don't think her humor is supposed to be "mature".

She-Hulk doesn't make juvenile jokes. She's witty, sometimes sardonic, and charming. Da Pool is juvenile.

Sometimes I do. Right now:
Director: Roland Emmerich (White House Down, Independence Day, 2012)
Carol Danvers: Charlize Theron or Emily Blunt
Mar-Vell: Matt Damon, you want someone big to make the deconstruction sing, like Pitt in MegaMind
Michael "Ace" Rossi - Sam Worthington
Abigail Brand: Amy Acker
Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson
Maria Hill: Cobie Smulders
Yon-Rogg: Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Ronan the Accuser: Kevin Grievoux
Sentry 459: (voice) Dee Bradley Baker

I forgot about Angela too. Don't know much about her other than she's originally a Spawn character but is now being put into the Marvel Universe as a major character at the end of Age of Ultron. She looks cool lol.
