She-Hulk comes to close, leaves Marvel fans excited for future
As time progresses people get tired of certain genres due to the constant following of an overused formula. Marvel Studios saw this and decided to switch up the norm by introducing She-Hulk. Every Thursday for the past nine weeks, Marvel fans enjoyed the fourth-wall-breaking, femme fatale that is Jennifer Walters.
The finale episode of She-Hulk opens with Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) in the prison cell that viewers once saw the Abomination reside in. This shows the way society perceives She-Hulk after her outburst. Eventually, Jen is let out of prison under the condition that she wears an inhibitor – a device that disables her powers. At the climax of the episode, a fight breaks out, and Jen, physically, breaks the fourth wall and complains to the writers about the ridiculous and repetitive ending that is in store. She eventually gets the ending that she wants, something less intense, but perfect for a simple Attorney at Law.
Overall, She-Hulk is a new-age show about a lawyer coming to terms with a new identity, nothing flashy, just Jen. Some dislike the show because they believe it is a grasp at feminist views but they are just looking for something to complain about. The Marvel team trying something new worked, some people just cannot get used to change.
Marvel adds She-Hulk to Disney+ with mixed reviews
When it’s time to sit back, relax, and turn on the TV most people will head straight to Disney+. Recently Disney announced the streaming of a new show based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe called, “She-Hulk.” Marvel fans were ecstatic for the new TV series that is based around women empowerment but when the show aired, not many people were pleased.
“She-Hulk” is based around the main character named Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) who gets into an accident with her cousin, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and unfortunately turns into the female version of the Hulk. Before the accident, Jennifer was just beginning her official career as a lawyer. When she gets into a car accident with Bruce, his blood gets into one of her cuts, which causes her to transform into a 6’7″ beast. When Bruce is able to capture her and bring her to an island in Mexico, they begin her Hulk training. Bruce attempts to teach her how to control her Hulk powers and learn to begin life as a powerful hero with an elaborate training plan except Jennifer is determined to get back to her normal life as a lawyer and disregard her new powers.
While “She-Hulk” was supposed to be a fun TV show, viewers should probably reconsider watching it. The once promising TV series slowly dissolves into an awkward combination of bad fight scenes, poor CGI and poor humor. Even though Jennifer is supposed to be a character viewers can relate to, she comes off as arrogant and irritating. Jennifer also manages to come off as self centered due to her lack of care towards her new super powers and is more focused on her old life. Bruce went through 15 years of complicated training and fighting villains to master his Hulk abilities but Jennifer learns to master her powers within hours and refuses to go through with any sort of training, which rushes the timeline for any superhero. The writing of the show is almost lazy. The first episode feels rushed with poor character development due to the speed of the writing.
