When she was asked about it on “The Late Show With James Corden” the night right after the rumours broke, she said, “I didn’t know it was such a trending thing, but I woke up to a lot of Instagram posts of like side-by-side pictures of me and She-Hulk, which I just thought; ‘cool’. And then that quote about an – Alison Brie-type – which honestly, I found very exciting because for years I’ve auditioned for the Anne Hathaway type or the Zooey Deschanel type, I was very flattered to be my own type for somebody else.”
Fans are eager to know why Marvel wants to cast someone “Alison Brie-Type” for She-Hulk and not Alison Brie herself. She also seemed to dodge this question in her interview. Though her way mirrored Paul Rudd’s way of denial just before he was cast as Ant-Man. If we trust those rumours, then we could totally see Alison Brie portraying She-Hulk and stopping Captain Marvel in being the sole “Woman” of MCU.

In the latest Marvel Comics, Captain Marvel is currently fighting with Avengers in her Captain Marvel #14. She isn’t doing it willingly but is forced to take on Avengers by her enemies, and her denial would mean the destruction of all Kree camps on Earth. While Carol was fighting with Avengers, She-Hulk enters into the scene and takes Carol by surprise punch. Her She-Hulk punch sends Carol flying away in the skies. Carol admits that she didn’t plan about She-Hulk, and now she has to take on her as well.
