The star of She-Hulk makes jokes about the recasting of Hulk

The star of She-Hulk makes jokes about the recasting of Hulk ...

Tim Roth, the star of She-Hulk, has revealed that he attempted to make a joke about the notorious Hulk recasting.

In The Incredible Hulk, Roth first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2008.

Roth made a brief comeback in Shang-Chi: The Legend of the Ten Rings, before making his television debut in the latest Disney+ series.

Emil is now a client of superhero attorney Jen Walters (Tatiana Maslany), the cousin of Bruce Banner, his previous adversary... with a minor difference.

Edward Norton played the green-raged monster in The Incredible Hulk, before the character was recast in 2012, and Mark Ruffalo took over the role in Avengers Assemble.

Roth said he was encouraged to acknowledge the recasting when he joined the cast of She-Hulk and "improvise and play" in his interactions with Ruffalo.

"Ive always wanted to work with [Mark Ruffalo] and it just happened to be this, which was kind of fun, but we messed around with the recasting."

"I don't know if any of it made it into [She-Hulk], but when I looked at him while we were shooting, I was like, You've put on weight. There's something about you..."

"So, it was that kind of stuff. We messed around, and we were encouraged to improvise and play." So, we dealt with [the recasting]."

After the success of Iron Man, the actor praised his new co-star and stated that he didnt believe the revamping would have any relevance.

"I never thought that deeply about it," Roth said. "I remember when they changed the actor, and I remember enjoying what Mark [Ruffalo] did. I was a fan of Mark as an actor. He's just an incredible guy and an incredible actor."

"Overall, the [recasting] aspect of it never really crossed my mind. I guess I just don't believe it that way." I don't believe franchises existed until that point, anyway.

"All of this came later with what Robert Downey Jr. and those guys managed to achieve with humor. That broke all the walls down, and off they went. It was quite extraordinary."

She-Hulk isnt the only MCU character to reappear. Wong (Benedict Wong) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) have both stepped up to assist the attorney in her transition to her new superhero lifestyle.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is available on Disney+, with new episodes premiering on Thursdays.
