Vivid, Braun Hope for Smash With Chyna as 'She-Hulk'

LOS ANGELES—Former pro-wrestler Chyna once again goes under the green body paint of the Hulk's female counterpart, this time for her own dedicated feature, in VividXXXSuperheroes' She-Hulk XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, debuting on Tuesday and on DVD a week later, April 2.

"Of all of the great female comic characters, She-Hulk is the one that I wanted most to play in a parody," said Chyna, who first took on the role last year in Braun's The Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody. "This is the role I was destined for because I can identify with both her strength and her vulnerability."

Added Braun, "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."

The parody details She-Hulk's origin, which occurs when attorney Jennifer Walters, cousin to Bruce Banner (aka The Incredible Hulk), gets shot by a gunman working for mob boss Nicholas Trask. Banner gives Walters an emergency transfusion that saves her life but transforms her into She-Hulk.

She goes on to meet up with the Fantastic Four, the Hydra cell and other popular comic book characters, including the Avengers' Hawkeye, once again played by Eric Masterson. Other cast members include Gracie Glam, Tara Lynn Foxx, Alexis Ford, Jennifer Dark, Mark Wood, Alec Knight, Alan Stafford, Ryan Driller and Richie Calhoun as Bruce Banner.

The She-Hulk XXX DVD includes an eight-page comic book of the parody illustrated by "Iron Bear," which Braun said "is the pseudonym for a well-known mainstream illustrator."
