LOS ANGELES — Vivid Entertainment and director Axel Braun are set to release “She-Hulk XXX: An Axel Braun Parody” starring former pro-wrestling champion Chyna online at Vivid.com on March 26, and in stores nationwide on April 2.
Braun said, “Chyna was absolutely terrific and I don’t think I could have made the movie without her. I can’t imagine any other adult or even mainstream actress in this role. She literally explodes off the screen.”
In the adult parody storyline, Chyna’s character is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and the cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Incredible Hulk. When a gunman working for mob boss Nicholas Trask shoots Jennifer, Banner performs an emergency transfusion, which saves her life but transforms her into She-Hulk.
“Of all of the great female comic characters, She-Hulk is the one that I wanted most to play in a parody,” Chyna said. “This is the role I was destined for because I can identify with both her strength and her vulnerability.”
The film is described as sex-filled and action-packed. Chyna’s character also meets up with the Fantastic Four, the Hydra cell and other characters, including the Avengers’ marksman Hawkeye, a role reprised by Eric Masterson.
Along with Chyna, the cast includes Gracie Glam, Tara Lynn Foxx, Alexis Ford, Jennifer Dark, Mark Wood, Alec Knight, Alan Stafford, Ryan Driller and Richie Calhoun as Bruce Banner.
An 8-page, 4-color comic book of the spoof illustrated by Iron Bear is included with the “She-Hulk XXX” DVD. “Iron Bear” is the pseudonym for a well-known mainstream illustrator,” Braun revealed.
