The first episode of She-Hulk came out last week and has received a mixed review, considering its cast, introduction to characters, the full episode, and how it concluded. Where a show has received mixed reviews, some positive and some negative, the creator of the show might get one of them only.

Recently during an interview with Lifehacker Australia, Gao talked about how the series will explore the blip. Talking about its timeline in the MCU, she said that it was a conscious and specific decision not to make a big deal out of the blip in the show.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Premiered on August 18

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters, an attorney and Bruce Banner’s cousin. She turns into a Hulk after being in an accident with her cousin. However, her transformation as Hulk is much more stable and under control compared to Banner’s Hulk.

The first episode lays the foundation for the show, representing how Walters became She-Hulk and returned to her regular life as an attorney. Most of the first episode included Hulk with Walters, and many believe that he took the spotlight in the first episode.

Some fans are also not satisfied with the introduction of the antagonist of the story, Titania, portrayed by Jameela Jamil, with having a glimpse at the end of the first episode followed by the quick transformation of Jennifer Walter in She-Hulk

She-Hulk Will Not Cover The Blip

The first episode also uncovers what Bruce Banner was up to during the blip and also explores the friendship between Banner and Tony Stark. So far, Hulk was the only character who mentioned the blip in the series.

But now Jessica Gao has confirmed the topic would not be discovered much in the series, as it has already been covered in many shows and movies. 

In the interview, she said, “So many people have already covered that territory that we’ve accepted it. We live in a world where that’s already happened, and people have already moved forward.

Fans were not pleased with this statement and took to Twitter to show their disappointment. One fan said, “Bruh, when half of life is erased and returned, you don’t just get over it in a couple of years W*F are they talking about.”

Many fans also call this move nothing but lazy writing.

MCU After Avengers: Endgame

The blip, which took place in Avengers: Infinity War, vanished half of the population on Earth. Five years later, Avengers managed to get all the infinity stones and bring back all those who vanished due to blip without changing the course of the past five years.

The event is already covered in shows and movies followed by Avengers: Endgame. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Spider-Man: Far from Home, and other movies that followed the events of the Endgame.

What to Expect From She-Hulk Cameos?

Other than the blip, Gao also warned fans not to set big expectations for the final episode of the series as it may end up disappointing them. 

The series will have several cameos, including Daredevil, Wong, Abomination, and Bruce Banner as Hulk. Gao said that all these characters who have been seen as very dramatic under very serious projects will be a little different from their usual self, and viewers will see a different side of them.

She said that it would be like a comedy vacation for them, where the universe is not in danger, it’s just a regular day for them, and they are not worried about saving humanity. 

With the first episode released and much left to be seen, it would be interesting to see how these characters are related to the story and what they will contribute to the series. 

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premiered on August 18 and is available on Disney+ to stream.
