The Marvel Universe has gifted its global fan base with multiple box office breaking blockbusters up until now. She-Hulk is now the newest addition to the family. However, not all of it originated without pre-existing movies of questionable taste. The studio almost ran into the ground before getting hauled back up on the shoulders of the actor-director duo – RDJ and Jon Favreau. The rest, of course, is history. But after dedicatedly delivering chart-topping movies and series for well over a decade, where is Feige’s resurrected studio headed now?
She-Hulk: Initial Fan Reactions
The most recent development in the Marvel arena has been the introduction of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Fans have undoubtedly been excited about the new Phase Four additions like the multiverse and an increased focus on female superhero movies/series. And yet, the initial fan reaction to the trailer of the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk has been disappointing, to say the least.

The Surprisingly Good Casting of She-Hulk
We all know the name Tatiana Gabriele Maslany. Yes, the incredible woman who starred as the protagonist of the celebrated mind-bending sci-fi Netflix series, Orphan Black. The series won her an Emmy among other noteworthy awards, which says enough about her talents as an actor. Maslany’s casting in the role of She-Hulk demands attention among the critics and fans.
That’s not all though. We are getting back to our roots with call backs from Tim Roth’s The Abomination from the 2008 rendition of Edward Norton’s Hulk. And of course, the ever present Sorcerer Supreme himself, Wong.
What Can We Expect From the Disney+ Series?
Even with the incredible casting, the trailer has not been an absolute hit with the fans. For one, the CGI looks like an absolute eyesore. Better animations existed during the now ancient The Avengers movie that came out a decade ago. Fans have been leaving shattering comments all over the internet. One of them even went as far as to beg the studio to “give VFX artists enough time to do their jobs.”
On the other hand, there has been an enormous influx of supportive and constructive comments about the series. Understanding exists regarding the impediment of the pandemic on the visual artists workforce. However, even with the support, not everyone has refrained from pointedly specifying the poor CGI and VFX of the series.
