If the series Star Wars gradually invade Disney+, the platform is teeming with Marvel series, some more anecdotal than others. No one will agree, but classy Widescreen Wanda Vision and Loki on the side of the (very) good surprises, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier and What If? on the side of bad memories.
While the very anecdotal My name is Groot just arrived, another green thing is about to be talked about. In she hulk, Tatiana Maslanyremarkable in the series Orphan Blackinterpreter Jennifer Walters: a working-girl and cousin of a certain Bruce Banner, also known as the Hulk. If the first trailer (ugly) of she hulk did not bode well, the lucky ones who were able to discover the first episodes of the Marvel series apparently fell in love with the green giant. Tweet review.
twitter loves SHE-HULK
“The first episodes of She-Hulk are exactly what I wanted them to be, if not more. I really like this comedy format. Unsurprisingly, Tatiana Maslany is brilliant as Jen. Her way of breaking the fourth wall , the comedic timing, the way she juggles the very nerdy side and the She-Hulk side. That’s a yes for me.” Nora Dominick – BuzzFeed
the first episodes of #shehulk are exactly what I wanted them to be and more. I love the comedy format so much. No surprise, Tatiana Maslany brings it as Jen. Her fourth wall breaks, the comedic timing, how she’s nerdy one second and then she-hulk the next. it’s a yes for me

“I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of She-Hulk and like Miss Marvel, the series improves both the quality and style of the MCU on Disney+. She-Hulk is the funniest Marvel content so far, and offers a refreshing take on the franchise and the formula, thanks to its meta style.” Rob Keyes – Screen Rant
I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of #SheHulk and it’s a great followup to Ms. Marvel, both upping the MCU quality and style on Disney+. She-Hulk is the funniest Marvel Studios content so far and has a refreshing take on the franchise lore and formula with its meta style. pic.twitter.com/JFhHL7aOo1

“I saw the first 4 episodes of She-Hulk and thought it was delicious! It’s a hilarious legal comedy full of MCU references. Tatiana Maslany is brilliant as Jen! She’s very funny and most CGIs look good. I can’t wait to see what’s next!” Cooper Hood – Screen Rant
I’ve seen the first 4 episodes of #SheHulk and thought it was delightful! It’s a hilarious legal comedy dripping with MCU connections.
Tatiana Maslany is great as Jen! She’s very funny and the CGI mostly looks good. Makes me excited to see more of her going forward! pic.twitter.com/NIeoQAc2Bm

“This is my third time watching the first four episodes of She-Hulk, and they’re exactly what I wanted them to be, and more. The series is joyful, decidedly bizarre, and furiously entertaining. She-Hulk raises the bar and sets the bar very high.” Jenna Anderson – Comic Book
I’ve now seen the first four #SheHulk episodes three times, and they’re everything I want them to be, and so much more. The show is breezy, unabashedly weird, and wildly entertaining. This sets a new gold standard for what MCU shows are capable of. pic.twitter.com/4Z8jAe293L

“I’ve seen the first four episodes of She-Hulk and I’m thrilled to report they are…amazing! Tatiana Maslany is AMAZING as Jen Walters, but my favorite part was is how She-Hulk is completely grounded in the MCU, while delivering something completely new. Can’t wait to see the sequel!” Molly Freeman – Screen Rant
I’ve seen the first 4 episodes of #SheHulk & am happy to report they’re… incredible! Tatiana Maslany is GREAT as Jen Walters but my favorite thing is how fully entrenched She-Hulk is in the MCU while at the same time showing us something completely new. Can’t wait for more! pic.twitter.com/9RRL7MIVgN

#SheHulk on its first 4 episodes it’s a big yes. A lawyer’s comedy almost procedural that takes advantage of a universe where anything can happen, it’s rhythmic, the 4th wall is broken, the floodgates and the absurd hit the bull’s eye and it tackles head-on what needs to be tackled. ???? pic.twitter.com/6wj6tBc9In

“My spoiler-free reaction to She Hulk after watching the first four episodes: The show passes the bar when it’s content to be a legal comedy, but struggles beyond that. Despite Tatiana Maslany’s amusing performance, Jen’s character is not developed enough in this first part.” Breeze Riley – The Marvel Report
My spoiler-free #SheHulk reaction based on the first 4 episodes: It passes the bar when it comes to the legal comedy aspect but struggles outside of that. Despite Tatiana Maslany’s fun performance, Jen feels underdeveloped as a character in this first half. pic.twitter.com/gaSrA6IRoZ

Watched four episodes of #SheHulk. It’s pure current MCU, namely: a great character, unfinished desires (as for Ms Marvel), but in the end the whole thing is as anecdotal as possible.

be careful because: twitter loves she-hulk
The critical embargo not being lifted yet, these first returns are as usual rather very enthusiastic. Despite everything, these first opinions are an opportunity to confirm, or not, certain impressions. We note that the majority of journalists who have taken part in the game of Twitter constantly come back to two points: humor, and the performance of Tatiana Maslany.
While most Marvel movies and series try to be funny, that ambition often falls through (we’re talking about you, Thor: Love and Thunder). But according to these first reactions, she hulk would have managed to find a good comedic rhythm as a descendant ofAlly McBeal.
Disney who makes you sign the embargo
For her first appearance in the MCU, Tatiana Maslany could therefore have succeeded in her bet within this series which, against all odds, would not be the announced/feared/expected catastrophe.
However, as always, caution is advised. See you on August 18, 2022 to discover the first episode of she hulk aka the series that could have “raised the bar” (we’re waiting to see).
