The Disney+ series stars Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, and protagonist Tatiana Maslany in full flow like the original Jade Giant, Abomination, and titular She-Hulk respectively. Though fans are excited about their interactions and love the MCU for extending its horizon, the overall trailer seems to be in a bad light because of CGI.

The She-Hulk trailer revolves around attorney Jennifer Walters(Tatiana Maslany) who is balancing her profession in a so-called “super-human law division” and her relationship with her cousin Bruce Banner(Mark Ruffalo). Although the trailer does its best to hide the storyline, there are glimpses where Bruce is seen helping Jennifer to train to control the more powerful She-Hulk alter-ego.


Unlike Bruce, Jennifer seems to manage quickly in public as a slightly larger, green-tinged version of herself. This is where the role of CGI starts! While Jennifer’s physical She-Hulk version appears on the screen, the CGI issues begin to become evident. Unlike other MCU Hulk appearances, She-Hulk seems to be rendered rather clumsily. Bad CGI is more visible when She-Hulk interacts with members of the public. Due to this, viewers are wondering why MCU’s CGI looks bad.

With the first trailer, there are several possibilities as to why the CGI of She-Hulk looks bad. Given the VFX-heavy nature of the series, it has to consider that She-Hulk demands a maximum budget be spent on covering CGI costs. As the resources are limited when comparing it with fully-fledged movies, it’s usual that some corners may have been cut.

Also, there’s a VFX industry that has to be dealt with. According to Inverse, “The VFX industry has been in trouble for a very long time,” with concerns over studio demands and quality control. The inverse also told that Marvel has encountered these issues earlier as well with the studio struggling even on big-budget projects like 2018’s Black Panther. This could be the main reason for She-Hulk‘s bad CGI.


There’s still a chance that Marvel would improvise the CGI of the Disney+ series She-Hulk as the trailer has been released several months before the show itself is actually due to air.
