Superhero movie nerds, even the ones who read the comics, seem to get pretty uneasy whenever there’s a slight change in tone with completely new adaptations of their favorite characters. Marvel’s new She-Hulk Disney+ series is subject to that very same slander from the same demographic, and it’s pretty embarrassing.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is one of the many Marvel productions that saw a plethora of Marvel fans and spectators from other franchises criticize it for being too “woke” or pushing an agenda. Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel being another example of the same. Now, what could be a brilliant PR reply to such criticism? The She-Hulk team prefers to make a funny statement about the whole situation.
The Team Behind She-Hulk Just Trolled The Trolls
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s post-credits scene for episode three was the center of the conversation surrounding Marvel’s non-commitment to the seriousness of their characters, which was quite funny cause She-Hulk is pretty goofy in the comics too.
In said scene, Tatiana Maslany‘s character could be seen twerking with famous rapper Megan Thee Stallion. This caused a huge meltdown among Marvel fans, who were questioning the integrity of Marvel’s storytelling, among other things.
The show had to go on, and Jessica Gao’s TV series continued streaming despite all the slander. But in the latest episode of the TV show, they’ve sent a fitting comeback to all the trolls making fun of the show. Episode 5 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law literally takes the jokes about the show from trolls on the internet, and adds them into it!
For instance, there’s one scene where Titania (Jameela Jamil) makes fun of Walter’s suit and green skin by calling her Shrek, a joke that’s being passed around social media about Walter’s legal look.
In another instance, a scene shows us a glimpse of a social media app in the TV series, showing us three different posts on the main feed of the app complaining about new female superheroes (a parody of the sexist comments aimed toward the conception of female characters in the MCU).
All in all, these are pretty smart and hilarious replies to the unfair criticism that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, a show that takes pride in how light-hearted it is, is being met with.

Despite what many may think, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law does have fans. The recent episode which shows us a few scenes hitting back at the criticism of the show’s “wokeness” has hyped up the fans by a mile.

Marvel’s got balls of steel-
The fact that Marvel knew exactly the type of shit this show would get really shows that not only they're self aware, but there like "Hey we know what y'all are gonna think, and we don't give a damn, fuck all y'all haters" and I can't do nothing but respect that

It’s been a tough opening start to Jessica Gao’s TV series, but the show has proven, with its brilliant reply to trolls in the latest episode, that it won’t give in to unwarranted criticism.
