There have been a number of different responses after watching the She-Hulk trailer. Fans of the comic character were looking forward to seeing She-Hulk get her own show. Others were more interested in being carried by She-Hulk. There was one common question, "Is it just me, or is that CG kind of bad?"

It's not just you.

In many of the scenes featuring the green form of She-Hulk, played by Tatiana Maslany, she does some sort of mo-cap enhanced by computer effects, similar to how Mark Ruffalo has played Bruce/Hulk, who also appears in.

There are a few shots where She-Hulk looks good.

She looks like she has been pulled out of a bad video game.

It's difficult to use computer effects to create a larger-than-life, attractive, muscular human that is not a hulking beast like Bruce. They weren't just going to make her green, but they were going to make her look like Gamora. She has to physically transform in a way that isn't possible for an actress or a woman who isn't a seven foot tall body builder.

In many of these scenes, the effect feels planted in the valley. You can see Maslany's performance come through, but it just doesn't look right, or as good as Bruce's Hulk.

Is this a problem for She-Hulk? It depends. The show will be released on Disney Plus in three months, so there is plenty of time for polishing. When there was a brief backlash against early versions of Thanos, they figured out how to make Josh Brolin work there, as we have had complaints about CG characters before. She-Hulk poses a unique set of challenges and is different than any of the others that have come before her.

Will Disney figure it out? Probably. I don't think they'd go to market with an uncut She-Hulk. I think they can clean up scenes like the ones we are seeing here before the show is released, but if they don't, it might be delayed to make sure it doesn't become a meme.

Some of the moments looked rough in the trailer, but there is no need to work on them. We will see what Disney comes up with by the August 17 release date.
