The trailer for the highly-anticipated Disney+ series She-Hulk failed to impress the Marvel fans. Some of them are now calling for the release to be delayed.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has realized some smash-hits in its Phase Four, like WandaVision, Loki, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Later this year, we can look forward to Thor: Love and Thunder and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Fans are also eager to welcome the debuts of the two characters, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk. However, the design for the latter female hero has made fans worried.
Kevin Feige, the chief of Marvel, has described the series as a "half-hour legal comedy." The official synopsis reads:
"This new comedy series sees Bruce Banner help his cousin, Jennifer Walters, when she needs an emergency blood transfusion, and guess what? She receives his powers too. Tatiana Maslany will play Jennifer, who is a lawyer specializing in superhuman-oriented legal cases. Mark Ruffalo is back as the Hulk alongside Tim Roth, who plays the Abomination."
As seen in the trailer, She-Hulk is a tall and muscular woman that fans have compared to Fiona in Shrek, if Fiona would take up bodybuilding as a hobby, that is.
The critique has been mainly about the CGI, which viewers consider outdated, like something between 2003's Hulk and The Sims.
"That She-Hulk trailer looked really good... *except* for the actual CGI model itself, which looked very uncanny in a strange plastic way, even in shots where she's next to Ruffalo's Hulk. I mean, those could be early shots, they may still be refined yet," one internet user meant.
Another commenter did not think the trailer lived up to its budget.
"It's hard for me to give She-Hulk any slack for the CGI when these MCU shows have movie budget. She-Hulk is 10 episodes with $10-15mill to spend per episode. That's enough of a budget to make a green lady look legit."
More comments flowed in, with fans demanding the CGI to be fixed and one viewer complaining that the trailer "made their eyes bleed."
The other side of the Internet defended the She-Hulk and stated that they were happy to finally have a live-action for the character. One fan took to Twitter to show support.
"SheHulk looks great, I am not worried about CGI. There is still a lot of time for Marvel to work on it. And being a Tatiana fan for a long while having been following her work. She will do this role justice!"
