When the first trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was released, fans had concerns about the quality of the show's visual effects, particularly the CGI used to transform star Tatiana Maslany into a green, 6-foot-7-inch, superpowered hulk.
In addition, Marvel has been under fire recently after several VFX houses revealed that working conditions on projects for the studio were poor. Marvel was called a "horrible client," "toxic," and "too big," resulting in the studio feeling they can "demand whatever they want" without proper compensation for the VFX artists.
It seems the She-Hulk team is on the side of the artists.
Speaking on a panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Wednesday, She-Hulk star Tatiana Maslany said, "I feel incredibly deferential to how talented these artists are and how quickly they have to work. Obviously much quicker than probably should be given to them, in terms of like churning these things out."
Head writer Jessica Gao added, "It's terrible that a lot of artists feel rushed and feel that the workload is too massive. I mean, I think everybody on this panel stands in solidarity with all workers and is very pro-good working conditions."
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was originally scheduled to premiere on Disney+ on August 17. However, during the panel, it was announced that the series premiere has been shifted to August 18 to accommodate a weekly release on Thursdays. This is the first time a Marvel series will drop new episodes on Thursdays.
