“Martin Scorsese was right”: She-Hulk Latest Episode With Megan Thee Stallion Twerking Leaves Internet Divided, Fans Defend Jen Walters’ Characterization Amidst Over Sexualization Claims

The witty conversations, funny one-liners, and hilarious antics in Marvel’s movies/TV series projects have been the subject of scrutiny from people who want Marvel to do a serious project for once, and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law‘s latest episode has played a part in amplifying the voice of those people simply by showing us this one scene.

Martin Scorsese’s words about Marvel’s works in 2019 seem to be aging like honey. With the release of this new episode from Jessica Gao’s Disney+ series, those words have ended up resonating with a lot of the audience who want a serious tone in Marvel movies. But there are always two sides to the coin that people tend to overlook in these situations.

The Latest Episode Of She-Hulk Only Adds To The Long List Of Reasons

Jessica Gao‘s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been one of the most criticized shows of the year. The reasons for all the hate this show gets aren’t unwarranted too, fans have complained about bad CGI, unnecessary “woke” symbols, a plot that couldn’t hold a candle in the dark, and is living off the excitement that cameos bring (cue the scene where Abomination is shown).

The latest episode of the superhero legal-comedy adds to that list of problems that fans see in the show. Popular American rapper Megan Thee Stallion makes a cameo in the show, in which a shapeshifting  Light Elf from New Asgard takes her form to dupe Jen Walters.

This was all fine and dandy for the die-hard Hulk fans watching the show. But at the end of the episode, there was a clip in which Megan Thee Stallion was shown teaching She-Hulk how to twerk. This led to rants about how sick fans are of Marvel’s over-the-top humor, and now the over-sexualization of women in its shows and movies.

This is honestly a bit embarrassing, but as I said, there are always two sides to the coin that people tend to overlook.

Calm Your Horses, The Twerking Scene Is Completely Fine

She-Hulk twerking has riled up a lot of Marvel fans simply because a character that has superhuman strength (and big in size, mind you), add being also a lawyer on top of that, is indulging in such an activity that makes her look goofy and ridiculous.

Martin Scorsese’s words about Marvel’s mass-produced shows and movies kind of make sense here. Back in 2019, the director stated an opinion that Marvel movies, despite their brilliant animations and superb scale in terms of lore, have movies with plots that are almost all the same, and the characters are also not as complex as individuals on their own. The latter opinion would currently be resonating with the crowd that is not at all amused by the latest episode of the Disney+ series.

While it does make sense that most Marvel movies play out in the same way, it would be entirely wrong to assume that She-Hulk’s character should have a strict and serious tone, because she just wasn’t written that way in the comics.

The character first made her debut in The Savage She-Hulk #1 issue. Jennifer Walters’ version of the Hulk is shown to be a woman who is as energetic as Bruce Banner’s Hulk, but also employs humor and fourth-wall-breaking moments to great effect in the comics.

So, it would be wrong to assume that such a fun and eccentric character wouldn’t fit into a twerking scene because she isn’t as different from the comics version of Walters (Jessica Gao stuck to the true version of the character guys). You lot are just getting mad for the sake of being made in this specific case.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is currently available for streaming on Disney+.
