It has also been announced that Mark Ruffalo, aka. The Hulk, will make at least one appearance as Bruce Banner in the show as mentioned in the project summary on the Film & Television Industry Alliance:

Following an injury, Jennifer Walters receives an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, and acquires a milder version of his Hulk condition. As such, Walters becomes a large powerful green-hued version of herself while still largely retaining her personality. In particular, she retains her intelligence and emotional control, although, like Hulk, she still becomes stronger if enraged.

This defiantly reenforces what Ruffalo said about not being done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet.
