Rumors Say Mark Ruffalo Returns To The MCU
Add another potential Avenger to the Disney+ lineup, with Mark Ruffalo teasing a possible appearance in the upcoming She-Hulk series for the streaming service over the weekend at the C2E2 convention in Chicago.

While it’s not clear just how involved Ruffalo would be in the She-Hulk series, it shouldn’t come entirely as a surprise that the Hulk would make at least one appearance, especially if the show intends to follow the comic book canon for just how Jennifer Walters becomes She-Hulk in the first place. After all, if there wasn’t a Hulk, there couldn’t have been a She-Hulk in the comics.

But trying to find new official info about the series is pretty tough.
For example, if you go to the official Marvel site and look up “She-Hulk” (as in the series), you get:
In other words, we just don’t know very much. But hey, it’s nice to hear the speculation that Mark Ruffalo will return to the role (and the shade) that we all love him in…
