The first reall official She-Hulk trailer provided spectators a glimpse of how the Disney+ program would appear, but many viewers were left asking why She-Hulk’s CGI looked so poor.
The available trailer shows series actors Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, and protagonist Tatiana Maslany in full flow as the original Jade Giant, Abomination, and titular She-Hulk.
Nonetheless, despite the obvious enthusiasm surrounding these exchanges and their ramifications for the larger MCU, there is a valid concern over what appears to be subpar CGI harming the overall goal of the show.
The teaser for She-Hulk shows attorney Jennifer Walters negotiating the legal profession in a so-called “super-human law,” scenarios not too different from classic tv show: Ally Mcbeal, as many people have noticed.
As well as her connection with her cousin Bruce Banner. Although the teaser is light on story elements, Bruce is seen training Jennifer in the art of heroism while also assisting her in controlling her more powerful She-Hulk alter-ego.
Jennifer, unlike past incarnations of Bruce, appears to be able to operate in public fairly swiftly, appearing as a somewhat bigger, green-tinged version of herself as opposed to the muscle-bound furious combatant from Thor: Ragnarok.
The CGI flaws become obvious in this more physically intimidating form. She-Hulk, in contrast to many previous MCU Hulk appearances, appears crudely and unconvincingly depicted, especially when interacting with members of the public.
This has sparked some major concerns among viewers, with many wondering why the effects appear so shaky and off…
There are several possible explanations for why She-Hulk’s CGI looks so bad. One important consideration is that, given the VFX-heavy nature of the series (especially when compared to other recent Disney+ entries like Hawkeye), She-Hulk demands that more of its budget be spent on covering CGI costs. With comparatively limited resources, particularly against a fully-fledged cinematic release, it’s perhaps unsurprising that some corners may have been cut. Additionally, there’s the precarious state of the VFX industry in general to consider. According to a recent report by Inverse, “The VFX industry has been in trouble for a very long time,” with concerns over spiraling studio demands and quality control. The same article explained that this is not the first time Marvel has encountered these issues, with the studio struggling even on big-budget projects like 2018’s Black Panther. This could be a key reason why She-Hulk seems comparatively unpolished.
