It’s not easy being green. That goes double if you’re hoping to land the part of one of Marvel‘s most obscure characters, Leap-Frog! In a new She-Hulk promo, members of the cast audition for the role of a character comic book nerds like me have been dying to meet. While Leap-Frog might not be impressive at first glance, including him in the series adds to the show’s D-List cache and overall appeal. Not every Marvel character in the MCU needs to be a heavy hitter. I would leap at the chance for a Disney+ series revolving around a group of misfit characters, like the Superior Foes of Spider-Man, or the Illuminati.
In the new She-Hulk promo, Tatiana Maslany, Ginger Gonzaga, and Mark Ruffalo audition for the part of Leap-Frog, a character capable of jumping very high. In addition to the stars mentioned above, Kermit the Frog also reads for the illustrious role. You’d think Kermit would be a shoo-in for the part, but we’ve all seen how hard it is for Muppets to get decent work these days.
Finally, the character you’ve all been waiting for. 🐸

Another promo for She-Hulk reveals that Daredevil (Charlie Cox) is finally making his way to the series. In the video, She-Hulk stops a speeding car, aiding Daredevil in his fight against crime. The two characters exchange words, though perhaps they’ll also share business cards. Marvel fans have been waiting all season for Daredevil to show up. I hope his spot satiates the impatient few, so those of us enjoying She-Hulk can experience a fleeting moment of peace.
Brandon Stanley (Richard Jewell, Naomi) plays Eugene Patillo, also known as Leap-Frog, in She Hulk. While we do not know the nature of Leap-Frog’s role in the show, I hope he’ll leave a lasting impression. She-Hulk has done a great job of giving bizarre characters the spotlight, and Leap-Frog deserves his chance to shine.
