Though there’s been no talk of She-Hulk joining the slate of films coming out of Marvel Studios, it’s all we can think about now that Tank Girl director Rachel Talalay brought up her desire to direct a movie about the character. In a recent interview with Vice, Talalay discussed the difficulties she encountered as a female director while making Tank Girl for a fraction of the budget of similar movies, how Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman is a “huge step” for women in the industry and offered up her take on how to make a movie about lawyer-turned-superhero Jennifer Walters.
I have such a strong vision of what She-Hulk should be. The difference between She-Hulk and Hulk is that she loved being She-Hulk. She was the Tank Girl of earlier days in terms of being able to say what she wanted, and when she became She-Hulk, it was like an opening of the door to freedom, to be the person that you wish you could be. That you’re stopped from being as a woman. And that’s the version of She-Hulk that I would love to embrace.
