"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law": Superheroine's Physique Sparks Outrage

Insiders also predict that the series will flop

The first trailer for the upcoming MCU series "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" was recently released. Apart from an appearance by Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, both fans and critics were not really impressed by the clips shown. The focus is on the criticism of the poorly done special effects, which were probably not quite convincing to anyone.

In addition to many "Shrek" comparisons, some fans also dislike the superheroine's looks, as many had hoped for a more muscular or fearsome portrayal. As CGI artist Sean Ruecroft confirmed, she was initially designed to be more muscular, but was then given her current, much slimmer form. However, this should not be that big of a deal, since it keeps the character very close to the comic books, which is definitely not the case with other Disney films, like "The Little Mermaid", as has often been the subject of criticism in the past. But not only the fans are critical of the new "She-Hulk" series: an insider also claims to have heard nothing good. As Matthew Belloni reported to puck.news, "She-Hulk" is destined to be a big flop. Belloni already referred to various sources behind the scenes last March, who are not too confident about the release of the series.

In addition to Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk and Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, the cast also includes Tim Roth as the villain Abomination, Jameela Jamil as Titania and Benedict Wong as... well, Wong. Behind the scenes, Kat Coiro and Anu Valia both directed, while Jessica Gao wrote the script.

So far, the MCU project has unfortunately not been well received, and it remains to be seen whether at least the visual flaws will be corrected by the time the series premieres on Disney+ on August 17, 2022.
