The first social media reactions for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe Disney+ series, have arrived online.
Find a roundup of Twitter “early reactions” below!
I’ve seen the first 4 episodes of #SheHulk and I’m sorry to say it hasn’t really worked for me so far. I don’t mind comedy in Marvel. I just didn’t like…THIS comedy. It further underscores what I see as an MCU identity crisis. More when the full review embargo drops Wednesday. pic.twitter.com/CzWcgjh2W1

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

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law far exceeds all of my expectations. This show is extremely self-aware & self-deprecating. In the first 4 episodes it has answered numerous burning MCU questions in very clever ways. It's hilarious, fun, & Tatiana Maslany is phenomenal!#SheHulk pic.twitter.com/DCkCDXRZvD

Saw 4 episodes of #SheHulk // #SheHulkAttorneyAtLaw: It’s a misfire. Ally McBeal, But in a Marvel Universe should be a clever idea & yet…Gender observations are basic & sound smug. An absentee villain. 4th wall breaking is Fleabag-gy, yet true to comics. Tatiana Maslany is great pic.twitter.com/HNAfrtxgxZ

The first four episodes of #SheHulkAttorneyAtLaw delivered exactly what I hoped we would see from one of my favorite Marvel characters of all time.
Jennifer Walters is going to be a LOT of people's new favorite, too. The writing was sharp and Tatiana Maslany is perfectly cast. pic.twitter.com/bC3u4UIWXg

I, too, am feeling the Marvel fatigue. And I was not really looking forward to SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW for that reason. But my gosh this show (four episodes in) is so clever and funny. It’s less about superheroes and more like watching an episode of Ally McBeal

Marvel’s #SheHulk is a VERY funny legal procedural that’s lighter on action, but heavy on breaking the fourth wall. This is the most self-referential the MCU has ever been. Cameos & references galore + a dynamite Tatiana Maslany performance. Also, Tim Roth rules! pic.twitter.com/Sx3cDTVUa4

#SheHulk has a surprising amount of ties to the rest of the MCU past and future and some legendary credits scenes on every episode.
It's very easy to get hooked on this show if you like fun.

Most of the early reactions are positive (which is to be expected), but there are a couple that suggests that the MCU needs to stop leaning so heavily into the comedy genre. From the trailers released so far I’m definitely looking forward to the series, but I’ll admit I’m hoping it’s not a joke-a-minute sort of show. At least everyone seems to be in agreeance that Tatiana Maslany is great as the titular Jade Giantess.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres on August 18, 2022 on Disney+.
Are you excited for She-Hulk? Will you be watching the first episode on Thursday?
