It’s not the first time Marvel Studios is getting criticized for weak visual effects in many recent MCU movies. And currently, VFX artists of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are under the microscope. The main reason is said to be that the studio has been investing more in unnecessary cameos like Megan Thee Stallion appearing in the third episode of the show while underpaying VFX artists.

Megan Thee Stallion, the 27 old rapper, recently appeared in the Disney+ show’s third episode as well as the post-credits sequence. Later, she and Jennifer Walters danced to her 2021 hit song while celebrating Jennifer Walters becoming her attorney. This created a whole new level of controversy among fans accusing Marvel of hiring such high-paid cameos but not giving enough importance to the VFX.

Megan Thee Stallion’s post-credits scene has received mixed reviews from fans. Few reacted positively and convinced themselves that She-Hulk is going to be worth finishing. But after her appearance, social media has been flooding up with twerking videos with some of the fans appreciating, while others react negatively.

The director and producer of She-Hulk, Kat Coiro, and head writer Jessica Gao responded to both criticism of the Marvel show’s VFX controversy and the recent rumors that Marvel has a bad relationship with the VFX artists they employ. Critics have been pointing out that VFX artists are feeling overworked by the studio for a while now.

Previously, ever since Marvel dropped the first teasers of, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, fans have been less than enthusiastic about the show’s CGI. Kat Coiro finally responded to the criticism last month by saying, “I think a lot of the reactions have to do with the fact that she is so different than anything we’ve seen.” And further added:

“We stand in solidarity with what they say. The truth is we work with them, but we’re not behind the scenes on these long nights and days. So, if they’re feeling the pressure, we stand with them and we listen to them.”

Later, an anonymous VFX artist also responded by stating:

“I was working seven days a week, averaging 64 hours a week on a good week. Marvel genuinely works you hard. I’ve had co-workers sit next to me, break down, and start crying. I’ve had people having anxiety attacks on the phone.”

Criticism of the She-Hulk is one of many recent issues Marvel Studios has faced regarding the studio’s VFX.  Marvel is reportedly putting quite a bit of demand on the VFX artists who work on their projects. With the studio producing a lot of projects, it has been increasing and many viewers have noted a decline in the quality of the visual effects.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is now premiering on Disney+, every Thursday.
