Even before it has arrived on Disney+, She-Hulk Attorney at Law has had a fair share of negativity around it. From reports that the show is not what Marvel Studio bosses expected, to complaints about CGI seen in the recent trailers, and rumors of the production being “a mess”, the series has quite some way to go to prove itself when it finally debuts next month. One person who isn’t taking social media criticism lying down is actress Jameela Jamil, who stars as the series villain Titania, who recently hit back as those making jabs at a recently released image from the show.
While there have been plenty of people who have liked what they have seen in the She-Hulk trailers, and are willing to wait for the series to actually arrive before casting judgment, recent photos released by Empire Magazine showing production on the show gave the best look so far of Jamil’s villain, and it was instantly attacked and mocked on various social media sites. With comments saying the costume is cheap and Titania’s hair and make-up are below standard, the actress came back with a tough retort for those taking a shot at the image. She wrote on her Twitter account:
MOVIEWEB VIDEO OF THE DAY
“Omg this photo.. Guys… I accept every ounce of shade here, but in defense of my excellent hair stylist, this is just my hair after a 14 hour stunt day in atlanta heat. Just after being upside down. She did a *great* job on the show I promise. I love her. Boobs look ok tho?”
She-Hulk’s Design Has Been A Constant Bone of Contention
Whether it is “cartoonish” CGI or the size of her muscles, it seems that everyone has been having a pop at She-Hulk recently. From the moment the first trailer dropped in May, bearing in mind the final post-production work is still ongoing, a lot of people jumped on the images as something to fill social media with memes about.
However, the biggest gripe seemed to come from Jennifer Walters’ alter-ego not being bulky enough, even though her appearance is pretty much in line with the original runs of comics featuring the character. According to one VFX artist, the original She-Hulk designs were build larger, but the team working on the show were told a number of times to bring her proportions down in size. At the time they said:
“I was at a company that did VFX for this. Apparently, she was bigger early on, but the notes kept saying to ‘make her smaller. We always roll our eyes (like we did on Sonic) but at the end of the day artists gotta follow orders.”
There have been plenty of nit-picks made throughout the MCU’s phase four, but mainly from those who seem to expect everything to be translated directly from the comic book sources, too many cameos and multiverse worlds appearing, or some who just want Endgame level events at every turn. Get by this, and the rest of the Marvel fan base as still quite happy with this latest run of the Marvel Saga.
