Recently, in an interview with SFX magazine, the director of She-Hulk, Kat Coiro talked about the fans’ grievances over the bad CGI in the series. She defended the show saying they worked on it for months during production and perfected it during post-production. She explained the work put into the character,

“It really is taking the design and asking, ‘Are we getting those facial expressions and those nuances of reaction?’ That is where all the time comes into play, just really honing in.”

She even addressed the grievances of the fans,

“I think a lot of the reactions have to do with the fact that she is so different than anything we’ve seen. When you think of Thanos or Hulk, they have a grisliness and a harshness and a bulkiness to them that is just so different. And when you just see a little pop of her, it’s almost shocking because we haven’t seen it before.”

Kat Coiro explained,

“She has such an incredible eye, and to me, a lot of that eye comes from this very emotional gut reaction that she has, which is backed by decades of technical expertise.”

“What I think is so cool is she keeps this real emotional reaction to the VFX. Watching her work has taught me so much about why something works and why it doesn’t; why does it go into uncanny valley? And it always comes back to the actor’s performance and capturing that.”
