She-Hulk Star Reveals How Hulk and She-Hulk’s Internal Struggles Differ in New Series

She-Hulk and Hulk may both be Hulks, but they’re very different characters with unique journeys as people and heroes. Hulk is one of the original Avengers within the MCU and has always had a unique history. Bruce Banner’s struggle with his Hulk identity is an integral part of his story with Banner attempting to destroy it even at the cost of his own life, trying to suppress or fight it, and the Hulk side retaliates by suppressing Bruce Banner for two years . . This ultimately resulted in Bruce and Hulk coexisting in one body, more physically Hulk while more mentally Bruce Banner.

Jen Walters, on the other hand, faces an entirely different internal conflict in She-Hulk’s lawyer. The Illuminerdi had the opportunity to attend the She-Hulk’s lawyer virtual press conference which included series stars Tatiana Maslany, who plays Jen Walters aka She-Hulk, Ginger Gonzaga, who plays Jen Nikki’s best friend, executive producer and head writer Jessica Gao, as well as executive producer and director of episodes 1-4 and 8-9 Kat Coiro. During the press conference, Ginger Gonzaga talked about the different internal struggles the Hulk faces compared to She-Hulk’s and how Tatiana brought those internal conflicts to life in Jen Walters.

“Our show is, I say, it’s very hilarious because it’s so embarrassing to be a person. Because of that humanity and that soul that [Tatiana] brings is also what’s so fascinating to watch with the difference between The Hulk and She-Hulk. So Hulk’s initial struggle is that he’s out of control when he’s Hulk and that’s primal. She’s conscious in this other form and it’s uncomfortable.

So you look at this super thing very aware of how it is in the world and how it’s seen when it’s special, and when it’s different, and when it has powers. So it’s this other perfectly cerebral, complex and fun thing that Tatiana is so good at, it’s really cool to watch compared to the Hulk’s journey.
