Eliza Dushku to Play Marvel Super-Heroine but Which One?
Joss Whedon may have the market cornered on Marvel’s ‘The Avengers‘ these days, but that doesn’t mean that previous Whedon alum can’t find ways of their own to take on the Marvel universe! So with the sexy Eliza Dushku set to lend her voice to a Marvel superhero, what new series might have us all seeing green?
Speaking to IGN on his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man on Disney XD’s recent ‘Ultimate Spider-Man‘ adaptation, former ‘Heroes’ star Adrian Pasdar unleashed a bit of green gossip in revealing that not only would he appear as the character on the forthcoming ‘Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.,’ but that uber-sexy Joss Whedon alum Eliza Dushku would also lend her voice to play Jennifer Walters, AKA She-Hulk! Though Disney XD has yet to officially confirm the news, Pasdar spoke of recording sessions with the actress:
The funny thing is if people were to actually visit these animation rooms and see the guys and the girls that are doing it, with the exception of Eliza, who’s a stunning beauty, the rest of us, we don’t look quite as good as the animation characters they draw for us.
It’s really quite funny. You see these middle aged guys having fun, playing these younger whippersnappers. It’s quite amusing to look around the room.
Though no official premiere date has been announced for ‘Hulk and the Agents of ‘S.M.A.S.H.,’ details from last summer’s Comic-Con described the series as including comic characters Hulk, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar and A-Bomb, and that ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ and ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ writer Paul Dini would be among those working on the series.
Dushku herself remains best known for her “Whedonverse” work, including the rogue slayer Faith of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘ and her headline turn as lead character Echo of ‘Dollhouse.’ She-Hulk isn’t the only comic character Dushku has given voice to either, having previously played Selina Kyle / Catwoman in the recent ‘Batman: Year One’ adaptation.
What say you? Is Eliza Dushku green enough to take on the role of She-Hulk, or should Disney smash Hulk’s new series? Give us your gamma-infused reaction in the comments below!
