‘Not a soul is watching this, stop mistreating Hulk’: She-Hulk Review-Bombers Justify Why They Made the Show Take a Ratings Plunge, Claim It’s Vengeance for MCU’s Hulk

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law has merely experienced a week in the limelight and the world is already divisive to the extremes with their reception of the show. While some love it with a fanatic devotion to Marvel, others hate it enough to award it with a seething 1-star on IMDb only because the rules wouldn’t allow them to bestow negative ratings. With the crowd perpetually on the fence about the new direction of Marvel Studios, review-bombers have made their job of picking a side infinitely harder.

To What End is Marvel Making the Phase Four Shows?

The MCU Phase Four series was conceived to introduce the newest character of Marvel superheroes, i.e. She-Hulk into the playing field. With Tatiana Maslany‘s Jennifer Walters now a part of the family, there is a resident lawyer and overseer of the superhero world bringing a taste of the real-world consequences suffered in the aftermath of events like Captain America: Civil War or literally every villain in the saga of Marvel universe.

However, the other brilliant aspect of having a soft launch of characters such as She-Hulk and the barrage of scattered leads as seen in Phase Four is that the audience might soon be getting plotlines such as Young Avengers or Midnight Sons, or even the A-Force. Since all the players are already on the field, the story can finally start building its narrative toward a legacy team-up after the original Avengers.

She-Hulk Gets Review-Bombed Worse Than Ms. Marvel

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is being showered with an abundance of 1s and 10s on the IMDb rating website as fans are either marveling at its radical shift from the generic Marvel series while other factions of the audience are vexed by the recent trajectory of Marvel moving further away from its source material. The Disney+ series at present has a rating of 5.3 out of 10, which is lower than Ms. Marvel‘s 6.2 and Moon Knight‘s 7.3

Twitter reactions, as anticipated, are divisive at best with most claiming Marvel has stopped making quality content after the closure of Phase Three. The review-bombers, mostly constituted of angered viewers, are blaming the show for either being too woke or for sidelining Hulk, even after a decade of Mark Ruffalo‘s stay at the MCU.

The recent arc of Marvel characters has become increasingly disappointing as mass shifts in opinion are being witnessed among the fandom. The Phase Four projects have become interspersed with not only deviations from the comic source but are also heavily laden with forced comedy and transparent plots serving as fillers before Phase Five can finally pick up the momentum for the Multiverse Saga.

In the meantime, the majority of Phase Four Disney+ series (apart from Loki) are facing public shunning and negative criticism online and even though the shows have managed to carry a considerable score on RT, it is not enough to make the fandom stay docile to the upsetting deliveries like Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Love and Thunder.
