She-Hulk Fans Destroy 'Uncanny Valley' CGI in Marvel Trailer

"Marvel I'm begging you to give VFX artists enough time to do their jobs."
  • Marvel fans on Twitter aren't impressed with the new trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, starring Tatiana Maslany. The trailer itself doesn't feature many twists or surprises, but the CGI leaves something to be desired. As one Twitter user said, "Marvel I'm begging you to give VFX artists enough time to do their jobs."

    Much of the trailer features Maslany in large, green Hulk form, but the CGI is noticeably bad, leaving the new superhero looking awkward and almost eerie, with a normal-sized green head resting atop a giant body. Unlike other Marvel heroes, Jennifer Walters also appears in her She-Hulk form in her everyday life, making it particularly challenging to create a CGI character that appears alongside regular people at restaurants, in the office, and at home.

    Though some Twitter users acknowledged these difficulties, it didn't prevent them from ripping into the She-Hulk trailer. Many compared Maslany's character to Fiona in Shrek, while others expressed solidarity with Marvel's overworked video effects team.

    But as others pointed out, Marvel has three months to fix the CGI, as She-Hulk: Attorney at Law doesn't premiere until August 17. That should be plenty of time to remove the Shrek effect.
